A Nite at the Races for the Exchange Club

Wearing Derby attire, guests gathered at the Sheltair hangar of the Pompano Beach Airpark on Nov. 3 for this year’s 150 Drawdown Dinner benefiting the local Exchange Club and the multiple charities they support. Guests could watch the horse races that were projected on the wall and bet using Exchange Club bucks for real prizes. There were also multiple raffles, silent and live auctions, and more. The band got everyone up on the dance floor while their violinist and saxophonist roamed through the room. A delicious three-course dinner was offered buffet style, served up by John Knox Village. Of course, a party themed “Night at the Races” could not be complete without mint juleps. TapSnap captured the moment with its pop up photo booth complete with props. Prizes were given for best outfits. It was a wonderful evening for a great cause.

The Exchange Club’s charities include The Children’s Healing Institute, the Broward Children’s Center, the Boys and Girls Club, First Tee of Broward, Our Father’s House Soup Kitchen, Woodhouse, Dynamos, the DAV, Honor Flight and many more. The Exchange Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit service organization, which focuses on child abuse prevention, community service, student recognition and scholarships, and Americanism and Veteran’s support.

Small plane crashes near Pompano Airpark

Posted on 21 June 2013 by JLusk

UPDATED: 8:08 a.m.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office reports the plane is a 2013 Beach craft.
Pompano Beach spokeswoman Sandra King says the pilot has 35 years of experience flying planes. He was walking around when firefighters arrived at the scene. Rescue workers took him to Broward Health North as a precaution.

BSO deputies are on scene of a small plane that crashed in an alleyway between NE 3 Ave and Dixie Highway, just northwest of Pompano Air Park just before 6:23 a.m. The pilot escaped uninjured and is reported to be the only person on the plane. The plane apparently knocked down power lines, causing a reported outage in the neighborhood. There is a fuel spill that is being contained by the fire department. No injuries to anyone on the ground.
