FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- Ferrari-Maserati of Fort Lauderdale provided a racing good time to benefit the Humane Society of Broward County when it hosted “The Fast and Furriest” on December 4. Chairs Dawn Dellapina and Ingrid Poulin welcomed Honorary Emcee Neki Mohan from WPLG Channel 10 for this motor-themed event that netted $18,500 for the shelter’s services and programs.

Guests enjoyed an evening of eye candy -- spectacular cars on display and exciting casino-style games. Accompanying the fun was an open bar, delicious food, and music by Sarz Entertainment.

As they arrived, The Fast and Furriest attendees were greeted by one of the shelter’s adoption ambassador dogs – a dog that is available for adoption as it spends time in a special volunteer home. Those guests checking in during the cocktail hour received 2,500 in free gaming chips to spend during the first hour of gaming. There was also a silent auction, and casino game players were able to cash in their chips for Chinese auction tickets. A fabulous prize drawing was held during the evening for the chance to win a Maserati for the weekend – Charlie Fox was the lucky winner!
