For the first time, History Fort Lauderdale’s annual fundraiser, History Makers, will recognize the contribution the Marine Industries Association of South Florida has made to Fort Lauderdale’s reputation as the “Venice of America” and the “Yachting Capital of the World,” and will honor pioneers in boatbuilding, the Denison Family. In addition to celebrating the two marine industry founders, History Fort Lauderdale (formerly know as the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society) will reveal plans for a permanent maritime exhibit to be housed at its historic museum in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The event will be held at Superyacht Village at Pier Sixty-Six South on March 31st and we hope that you will consider joining us to memorialize our history and celebrate our future.
