Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Hosts 17th Annual Grapes for Grades

It is with great pride that the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Broward Education Foundation (BEF), presents the 17th Annual “Grapes for Grades”, a soirée of fine wine, silent auction, tantalizing food and the occasion to socialize with Hollywood’s movers and shakers.

The event is scheduled for Friday, September 27th, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Gallery of Amazing Things, 481 S. Federal Highway.  This upscale evening will also feature an unbelievable silent auction which will be live online September 17, 2019, at

This year, “Grapes for Grades” will benefit the Broward Education Foundation and funds raised will be specifically designated for Hollywood Students eager to pursue their education, either with a four-year college degree or technical college certificate.

For the past 16 years, “Grapes for Grades” has raised over $405,000 dollars for close to 500 Hollywood students. In addition, for the second year now, a portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to Hollywood K through 12 schoolteachers via the Broward Education Foundation “Tools for Schools”. This program provides a mobile school supply store for easy teacher access. It will be visiting our local Hollywood schools to give our teachers a much-needed free shopping opportunity for their classroom and students. 

Event goers will enjoy this unforgettable evening with unlimited fine wine, live music and tantalizing food while mingling with Hollywood’s finest. The evening entertainment will be provided by the one and only DJ Slick305. The auction will feature exciting cruises, JetBlue tickets, experience packages, and so much more!

“How often can we justify a lovely evening sipping wines from around the world and tasting the best food in South Florida while shopping a fantastic silent auction to benefit Hollywood students who need financial assistance to pursue either a college degree or a technical college certificate? Only once a year… Grapes for Grades does just that for you! Join us on September 27th at the Gallery of Amazing Things,” exclaimed Anne Hotte CEO, Executive Director of the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

We are now currently accepting silent auction items, restaurant applications, and sponsorship donations. Single entry tickets are $100 in advance and $125 at the door. Tickets and packages can be purchased, and participants can register to bid at
