Party With A Purpose is back; next event set for Nov. 11

Revitalized by community activist Marty Jacobsen and Luis Guevara, president of the Downtown Hollywood Business Association (DHBA), Party With A Purpose is back after nearly a year of dormancy.  Jacobson and Guevara have formed an event committee within the DHBA to manage the event and Hollywood Gazette has signed on as the media sponsor.

Created in 2006 by Hollywood Gazette publisher Jennifer Sandomir as a net-worker / fund-raiser for local charities serving the community, the Party With A Purpose events have raised over $150,000 for local non-profits since 2006.

The first event in the new lineup will take place on November 11 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Greek Joint in Downtown Hollywood.

The ten dollar event admission will be donated to a different charity each month. There will be hors d’oeuvres, drink specials, a raffle and an opportunity to network.

The Nov. 11 Party With A Purpose will benefit Girl Rising South Florida, a local organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of girls all around the world. 

“This will be a social event,” said Luis Guevara. “We will have this event on the second Tuesday of every month Downtown Hollywood and we will raise money for different charities.” 

For more information, call Marty Jacobsen at 954-394-0998 or e-mail him at [email protected] . Like Party with Purpose on Facebook for updates and invites.
