It’s that time of year again, when the events start popping up on the calendar fast and furious—and that includes the 22nd Annual Florida Classic presented by Ford, BB&T and Breakthru Beverage. Over the years, the Florida Clas-sic has netted almost $8.8 million for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to fund research and top-quality care for cystic fibrosis patients. This year, a new event is being introduced: “An Intimate Evening with Jon Secada” (formerly the 65 Roses Gala), which will feature a performance by the Grammy Award-winning singer where guests can enjoy dinner in a lounge-style atmosphere, seated front-and-center for Secada’s performance. Other highlights to look forward to: A “50 Shades”-themed BeachBash on Thurs-day, November 16, at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale; a golf tournament on Friday, November 17, at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club, and a fishing tournament on Saturday, November 18.
