The red carpets were rolling out in Broward County this weekend, too.

More than 700 people attended the 7th Annual Community Care Plan Non-Profit Awards on Friday (Feb. 24) presented by the Signature Grand and hosted by 2-1-1 Broward. The event, which raised $154,000, included the red carpet arrival, awards ceremony, luncheon and after party, all to celebrate the work of Broward County’s non-profit organizations and their leaders.
