FEATURED EVENT 13TH ANNUAL BACK TC SCHOOL DRIVE IS AN A+ SUCCESS Todd Nordstrom, of Nordstrom Network at Keller Williams Realty, hosted his 13th annual happy hour fundraiser to benefit Children's Home Society and its back to school drive. South Florida Luxury Guide was thrilled to join efforts this year to sponsor this worthy cause. "Cocktails and Collaborations" was held at the fla- vorful Grimpa Brazilian Steakhouse, located in Mary Brickell, Miami. SX Liquors provided complimentary welcome drinks. Park West Gallery provided fabulous art pieces — including one from formerly featured Guggenheim artist Leslie Lew — for the live auction. Bachelors and bachelorettes were also bid on, with one bach- elorette securing $400 for a date! The kids in Children Home Society's care have been removed from their homes due to abuse or unsatis¬ factory living conditions. The annual event ensures that the children are set up for success, whether it's with a new backpack, school supplies or even a new outfit. More than $5,000 was raised during Children's Home Society's 13th annual drive. For more information on the Children's Home So¬ ciety of Florida, call 305.755.6520 or visit www.
