The Event: American Cancer Society’s ‘Up the River Cruise’
The Cause: The 23rd Annual Jail and Bail Fundraiser ended with a bang aboard the “Up the River Cruise.” More than 250 seafaring philanthropists enjoyed a warm South Florida evening sailing around the Fort Lauderdale waterways on the Biscayne Lady Yacht. The cruise raised $40,000 for the American Cancer Society, bringing the grand total raised through the year’s events to $185,000. This year’s festivities pushed total fundraising efforts over the $4 million mark.
