BUSINESS AND PHILANTHROPIC COMMUNITY UNITED TO HONOR THE GALLERIA’S MELISSA MILROY AT HEART GALLERY OF BROWARD COUNTY’S “TRU-HEARTS” FRIEND-RAISER AT TRULUCK’S FORT LAUDERDALE
More than 100 guests gathered at Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale to celebrate Melissa Milroy, senior marketing manager for The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, who was honored as this year’s Tru-Hearts Child Advocate by the Heart Gallery of Broward County. Launched just last year, the luncheon spotlights those who are making a difference in the lives of children and families. The friend-raiser raised more than $16,000 to benefit the Heart Gallery of Broward.
“Heart Gallery of Broward would like to thank this year’s ‘Tru-Hearts’ attendees who turned out to honor Melissa Milroy, an exemplary role model in our business and philanthropic communities who is dedicated to bringing families together,” said Yvette DuBose, executive director of Heart Gallery of Broward County. “We also salute Truluck’s for their support of our mission to find homes for the hardest-to-place kids.”
Guests enjoyed Truluck’s signature dishes during a seated lunch, informal modeling courtesy of Neiman Marcus and a raffle with prizes from Spirit Airlines, Macy’s, Dillard’s and The Red Door Salon & Spa.
