The private “Boys ‘N’ Toys” yacht hop raised money for Kids in Distress during the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. A silent auction and a live auction included a trip to Paris, a diamond necklace and a day with the Broward County Sheriff which included a helicopter ride and a ride in an official police car.

“The purpose of the Boys N’ Toys event is to have the ‘big boys’ look after the little ones, so they too can become the next superheroes,” said Kids in Distress Development Officer Patricia Moskol. “Our all-male committee is dedicated to the mission of Kids in Distress, and we appreciate all of their efforts.”

Sponsored by PNC Bank and hosted by Northrop & Johnson, the event raised $170,000 for Kids in Distress.
