W Fort Lauderdale Welcomes Santa’s Suped-Up Ride

W Fort Lauderdale, the Miami Dolphins Foundation and Ferrari-Maserati of Fort Lauderdale are teaming up for their first ever charity ‘Food Drive-Thru.’ In conjunction with Fort Lauderdale’s Centennial Celebration and “Light Up the Beach,” the ‘Food Drive-Thru’ kicks off on Tuesday, November 23 with a show stopping event at W Fort Lauderdale.

W’s grand valet area will be transformed into Santa’s Workshop complete with a one-of-a-kind, larger-than-life Ferrari powered W sleigh, including a red ‘Rudolph’ Ferrari of course. Santa’s helpers, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders and Santa Claus’ studley local ambassador, Bliss Spa’s Bliss Guy, will be on-hand to greet fans, pose for photos and accept donations.

As a thank you and incentive to donate, W Fort Lauderdale’s generous partners including Stephen Starr’s STEAK 954, Whiskey Blue and Bliss Spa are offering perks and discounts to those that drive through and donate a minimum of five pounds of non-perishable items and even greater gifts for supporters that contribute more than 10 pounds. All donations will benefit local community members in need at the holidays.

401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale; 954.414.8200; www.whotels.com/fortlauderdale; The food drive will run November 23 through December 9.
