[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.87″ background_layout=”light”]

Grapes for Grades is a popular Hollywood event drawing community and business leaders together for a good time for a good cause.  The event benefits the Hollywood Florida Scholarship Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides college scholarships to deserving seniors from local Hollywood high schools.

The 15th Annual Grapes for Grades was presented by the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania Beach.

A number of Hollywood restaurants offered some of their most popular entrees for guests to sample with wine and live  entertainment. The silent auction and drawing for a ten-day luxury cruise to the Caribbean helped raise money for the foundation.
