Selfless Love Foundation’s First Annual Gala raised over $1.2 million

to benefit current and former foster children. South Florida philanthropists Ed and Ashley Brown hosted an exclusive event for 200 guests at the Flager Museum. The Foundation’s initiatives include Brown’s Harbor, a supportive housing program for former foster children – and Family-Match, adoption-matching technology for current foster children waiting to find their forever families.

Ashley Brown, a child of adoption, expressed gratitude, “We are so excited to be celebrating our first Selfless Love Gala! 100% of the proceeds from tonight will help fulfill Selfless Love Foundation’s mission of transforming the lives of current and former foster children through. Together, we are Fostering Dreams.”

Title sponsor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits supported this intimate evening, which featured self-made billionaire and former foster child, John Paul DeJoria. On behalf of City Furniture, DeJoria surprised former foster child and Brown’s Harbor graduate, Kenisha Sands, with furniture for her recently purchased new home.

Selfless Love Foundation’s Gala was truly a night to remember with one of a kind auction items, like a three-night stay aboard The Patrón Tequila Express Train, Martha Stewart Cooking Experience, and an invitation-only weekend at The Patrón Hacienda and Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. The luxurious event was topped off at the end of the night by surpassing their fundraising goal with $1.2 million with a surprise glow in the dark after party. Guest danced and enjoyed special curated cocktails all night long.

For this to be a First Annual Gala, this is sure to be an evening that won’t be forgotten.
