The Florida Yacht Brokers Association and Fort Lauderdale Mariners Club have come together to support Shake-A-Leg Miami by co-hosting the second annual Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show kickoff party.

With a theme of “Mojitos, Mambo and the Macarena!,” the event will feature live music, drinks and appetizers. The fundraiser will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Show Management tent on Cocktail Barge No. 1 in the 4700 block of Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.

A limited number of event tickets are available and can be purchased online for $30. Event sponsorships also are available.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Shake-A-Leg Miami, a charitable organization that helps people of all ages with disabilities learn and engage in the fun and rewarding discipline of sailing.

“This annual event helps Shake-A-Leg Miami continue its fine work of helping children and adults overcome their physical, developmental and economic challenges,” Shake-A-Leg Miami founder and president Harry Horgan said in a statement. “Last year’s event was so well-received that these fine marine industry organizations have decided to host it again this year. We at Shake-A-Leg Miami thank them for their continued support.”

Sponsors to date include Show Management; The Triton newspaper; Yachting Experts Inc.; Fowler White Attorneys at Law; and Falvey Yacht Insurance.
