REVIEW: Bokampers Plantation Did WHAT To Hamburgers??

Photo: Bokampers
I spent my adolescence in South Florida, and it's one of the places I call home. A lot has changed there over the years, like most places. Many of my favorite restaurants that were not expansive chains are now gone, but the upside to that is the chance to discover something new when I visit. Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill launched in Plantation in 2008. It has grown to six locations in the south and southwest Florida areas, including Miramar, Estero, Naples, and two Fort Lauderdale outlets, with Bo's Beach now open at Fort Lauderdale Beach. If the name Bokamper sounds familiar, there's a good reason for that. The restaurant was founded by former Miami Dolphins linebacker, Kim Bokamper - a member of the team's famed "Killer B's" defense that led the Dolphins to the Super Bowl in 1982.

FLORIDA - 2018 American Cancer Society’s Celebration Gala to be Held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa

Gala Sponsorships Available



Who/What:
The 2018 American Cancer Society’s Celebration Gala will be held at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa on May 5, 2018, which is Cinco de Mayo.  The theme is “Let’s Fiesta!” It will be hosted by Dale McLean, in-arena host for the Miami Heat. This year’s chairperson is Lori Castle and co-chair is Heather Frantz. The Gala will feature silent as well as live auctions, a cocktail hour, dinner reception and dancing.

This year’s honoree is the Sweers Family -- Randy, Kim and Chase – founders of FB Marine Group, one of the largest boat dealerships in South Florida. Kim Sweers’ father and her husband Randy’s mother both died of cancer and, in their memory, the Sweers Family used their company’s world-class offshore race boat as a platform for “Racing for Cancer,” Indy Car Driver Ryan Hunter-Raey’s charity. The race boat has traveled around the world promoting the war against cancer. Then, in a strange twist of fate, Sweers herself was diagnosed with breast cancer and her father-in-law was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer in the same year. Due to early detection and the advancements in cancer research both are in remission today.
