Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward county’s 25th Annual
ShowBoats International Rendezvous is biggest and best ever

World’s largest gathering of mega-yachts this year at Atlantis
largest in 25 year history


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (November 16, 2012) – Featuring sensational mega-yachts, a spectacular fireworks display, and Huey Lewis & The News headlining the Saturday Night Gala, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County’s 25th Annual ShowBoats International Rendezvous was the biggest and best event yet with the most guests and yachts in attendance to date. The event, which took place November 8-10, 2012 at the beautiful Atlantis, Paradise Island in the Bahamas, benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.

The three-day weekend of festivities kicked off with the Thursday night “Dine Around the Docks” Yacht Hop. The largest gathering of mega-yachts for charity in the world, guests dressed in nautical chic attire were treated to ‘the good life’ as yacht owners and captains did their best to out-do one another and impress their newly boarded guests. Rounding out the evening was a traditional yacht christening of Linda and Douglas Von Allmen’s 187’ Trinity M/Y Lady Linda and a tremendous fireworks display presented by Sparktacular, while guests toured the yachts and enjoyed cocktails, fine wine, gourmet food and entertainment for a night
 to remember.

Continuing with the fun, Friday, November 9 featured a fishing tournament followed by an array of activities including a slot tournament and gambling lessons. The day’s festivities concluded with a poolside party featuring dinner, cocktails, and live entertainment by Caliente and The Village People. Saturday, November 10 featured a beach Bahamian style BBQ, games and activities. The action-packed weekend concluded with a cocktail party and White Gala featuring an exciting live auction, gourmet dinner, and special entertainment by Huey Lewis & The News.

“This year was already set up to be a tremendous success, with the celebration of our milestone 25th anniversary at an exciting new location, and the leadership of Mike Busacca,” said Rick Case, Founder of the Annual ShowBoats International Yachting Rendezvous. “I’m proud to say that this was our largest and most successful event ever, which is produced by volunteers with no paid producers, promoters or staff. Now we are on to finalizing the planning of our next big event for the children – the seventh annual Boca Raton Concours d’ Elegance.”

The seventh annual BGCBC Boca Raton Concours d’ Elegance presented by Mercedes-Benz USA and AutoNation will be held February 22-24, 2013 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. All proceeds from the three-day weekend of festivities benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. Friday, February 22 will feature the duPont Registry Live! Hangar Party at the Boca Raton Airport; Saturday, February 23 is the black-tie optional gala featuring a live auction like no other and a stellar performance by legendary comedic icon Bob Newhart; and Sunday, February 24 will feature the famed Automobile & Motorcycle Exhibition showcasing more than 200 of the finest collector cars and motorcycles from around the country. All events are open to the public with tickets sold separately. For tickets or more information, please call (954) 537-1010 or visit .
