Burgeoning philanthropists Erika Thomas and Nicole Hogan made the conscious decision a few years ago of becoming involved in their community and in the well-being of any community's most precious resource, children. After a humbling experience touring the Broward Children's Center in 2010, a partnership of fundraising was born.

The Broward Children's Center opened its doors over 40 years ago and specializes in the social and medical needs of developing and special needs children; offering a range of health, wellness, education, recreational, therapeutic, living and advocacy services. As such, the Center has been a pioneer in the development of "community-based" residential facilities for children with developmental disabilities or who are medically fragile.

Thomas and Hogan's Happy Hours have raised over $35K for the center.

Ttheir quest to continuously underwrite through these social events is far from over, however, as the Center's needs for their specialized care involves expensive equipment like ventilators and wheelchairs as well as the numerous hours of therapy and the support staff that makes it happen.

And like we've said before, nothing loosens wallets like the delicious lubrication of booze. Past events have been held in numerous restaurants around Ft. Lauderdale like McSorley's Beach Pub, SoLita and Dapur Asian Tapas & Lounge among others. Drink specials and appetizers combined with raffle prizes have proven the main attraction at these events. There's something of interest for everyone; from Miami Dolphins tickets to paddleboard tours, sometimes there is some high-end swag from boutiques like LaLa Couture, Pretty Please Couture and Stella & Dot.

All of these elements combine for a great cause under the energetic chutzpah of the hostesses. This week's Happy Hour will be at the recently opened Atlantic Hotel's eatery Beauty & the Feast with the $25 ($20 in advance) entry fee guaranteeing a free cocktail, appetizers and a ticket for the door prize giveaway. So c'mon, let's have a drink for the kids!

Happy Hour for the Broward Children's Center from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 14 at Beauty & the Feast, 601 N. Ft. Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $20 advance and $25 at the door. Call 954-943-2253 or visit bcckids.org.
