Hall Society Social

The Hall Society met on May 16th at Hotwire Communications in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The event was hosted by corporate board member, Carl Lender, EVP of Hotwire Communications, and the Hotwire team. The event was designed to bring together business professionals in Broward County who are looking to give their time and talent to help raise awareness of BGCBC and are also looking to benefit from the professional development and networking opportunities. Hotwire Communications provided tours of the facility, video game play, interactive virtual reality and food and beverages. We were honored to be joined by Fort Lauderdale District 1 Commissioner, Heather Moraitis, who spoke about the positive changes that will be coming to our Neighborhood. We were also joined by several Boys & Girls Club alumni, two of which shared their stories about how the Club has helped them develop into the professionals they are today. Beatrice Bijoux, a local attorney, and Keel Russell, a successful entrepreneur, attribute much of their success to the lessons they learned while they attended their Clubs.
