The Billfish Foundation’s Annual Gala is almost here! Join us at the Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale on October 29th at 6 pm for an out-of-this-world Space-themed event. The night will kick off with a cocktail hour featuring a silent auction and raffles. Then, we’ll head into the ballroom for dinner, a live auction, and a special awards ceremony where we’ll honor this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award Winners! Plus, we’ll crown a winner for our space-themed costume contest, so show up in your best galactic gear!
