FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – On Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019, the Ghost Light Society will celebrate a decade of engaging and inspiring a new generation of performing arts supporters at the 10th Annual Ghost Light Society Soirée: Soirée à Paris presented by Ultimate Software. Approximately 250 young professional leaders are anticipated to attend the Parisian-themed event featuring dining, dancing and more in the Huizenga Pavilion at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, with proceeds to benefit the Broward Center’s arts-in-education programs.

Since forming in 2009, the Ghost Light Society has established its annual Soirée as one of the most highly anticipated events of the season while also enabling the group to raise nearly $1 million for arts-in-education programs – a significant milestone it aims to surpass at this year’s event. For the second year in a row Ashley Boxer of Maxim Healthcare Services and Whitney Dutton of Dutton Real Estate Services will serve as co-chairs of the Soirée, coming off the record-breaking success of last year’s event.

In addition to Presenting Sponsor Ultimate Software, the event is supported by Platinum Sponsors Akerman LLP, Broward Health, Celebrity Cruises, Ashley and Matt Lindsay and Charles and Laura Palmer, Memorial Healthcare System, Merrimac Ventures and Publix. Additional sponsorship opportunities, VIP packages and individual tickets are available. For more information, contact 954-414-6901 or
