On Monday, October 26th the Signature Grand was transformed into a haunted mansion to host the 14th Annual Signature Grand Ghoul. Benefitting 2-1-1 Broward, the event was hosted by former Miami Dolphins wide receiver O.J. McDuffie and former Miami Dolphins tight end and WQAM radio host, Joe Rose. More than 600 attendees, including Miami Dolphins alumni, local celebrities and notables gathered for a night of thrilling tunes, cocktails and costumes helping to raise a grand total of almost $50,000 for 2-1-1 Broward. Broward County’s 2-1-1 hotline connects residents with trained crisis specialists who assess the caller’s situation and provide the link to available community resources. NFL alumni in attendance included Troy Drayton, Mark Higgs, Kerry Glenn, John Bock, Randall Hill, Terrence Jones, Ki-Jana Carter, and Brian Poli-Dixon.

The Signature Grand was once again spectacularly decorated into a 100,000-square-foot haunted mansion, by One of a Kind Party Designs, to welcome guests outfitted in a number of freakishly fabulous costumes. Attendees enjoyed a memorable night featuring an open bar serving crafty cocktails, a gourmet buffet with various food stations, exclusive VIP area, sounds by Complete Media Events as well as a special performance by recording artist Wolf Pakk, celebrity appearances by Absoloot and Jon Saxx along with a variety of entertainment.

Throughout the night, judges selected the best dressed guests based on costume creativity, fear factor and originality.

The Calvin Giordano & Associates Silent Auction, which featured more than 100 marvelous items, experiences and prize packages also contributed to the nearly $50,000 raised for 2-1-1 Broward.
