Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale, developed by The Related Group, Fortune International Group and Fairwinds Group, partnered with The Florida Panthers Foundation to host the third annual Cats and Cocktails event on Feb. 7. The exclusive evening, held under the stars on the Las Olas Riverfront, was attended by Auberge’s development team, Florida Panther ownership, players and coaching staff as well as the organization’s premium seat holders and corporate partners. Guests had the opportunity to mingle with players and experience the lavish lifestyle that future Fort Lauderdale Auberge residents will be able to enjoy. Andy Mitchell, CEO & President of the Fairwinds Group, said “The Florida Panthers are an amazing philanthropic organization and we are fortunate to have them in Fort Lauderdale. Our partnership shares a passion for helping the community and we are delighted to be the host for the Cats & Cocktail event for 2018.”
Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale and The Florida Panthers Foundation have been working closely together throughout this season to bring the best in hockey and residential development to Broward County.
