NSU’s Mailman Segal Institute for Early Childhood Studies (MSI) raised more than $25,000 at its recent 10th Annual Evening Under the Stars cocktail reception and silent auction fundraiser, which was held at NSU’s Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale.

The proceeds from the cocktail reception and silent auction will benefit MSI’s Early Learning Programs’ Scholarship Funds. These funds provide financial assistance to families in need who otherwise would be unable to participate in the institute’s preschool, infant/toddler, and parent/child programs including Starting Right, an early intervention program for children 18-36 months identified as at-risk for, or diagnosed with, autism.

One of the April 24 evening’s highlights was a silent auction which featured one-of-a-kind paintings inspired by world-renowned artists, that were created by the children who attend the Institute’s programs; along with items and services donated by community sponsors.

Evening Under the Stars is the only major fundraising event benefiting MSI’s scholarship funds. The evening included cocktails, scrumptious hors d’oeurves and dessert by celebrated caterer, Hugh’s Culinary.

The festive evening also featured the rare opportunity to view selections from two extraordinary private collections: Gordon Locksley’s “With You I Want To Live” exhibition, and the art collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.

Hundreds of parents, local community leaders and businesses came together to support Evening Under the Stars. This year’s sponsors included Broward Health, South Seas Island Resort, Guy Harvey Enterprises, Publix, Muvico Theaters, New York City Ballet, Rooms to Go and SeaWorld Adventure Park, among others. Event underwriters included Ginger Wine and Spirits, Gold Coast Beverage, and Hugh’s Culinary.
