Skate for a Cause to Benefit MADD Southeast Florida



Fort Lauderdale Beach has never been cooler with the debut of The Wonderland RINK at Las Olas Oceanside Park, a 4,000 sq. ft. eco-friendly, technological marvel that brings the thrill of ice skating seaside, under blue skies and swaying palm trees. Composed of self-moisturizing, seamless tongue-and-groove panels, The RINK offers a smooth surface for skaters to glide and turn as they would on conventional ice, while providing a traditional wintertime experience that's perfect for all ages, ice skating novices and pros alike.

To help make the holiday season even brighter, The RINK will donate $2 from each ticket sale on Giving Tuesdays throughout the seven-week series to local nonprofit organizations. Tuesday, December 26, willbenefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Southeast Florida. Supporters can also make any Tuesday a Giving Tuesday by adding a donation or keepsake ornament to any skate session purchase.

Founded by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking.MADD also supports drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge, serving one person every nine minutes through local MADD victim advocates and at 1-877-MADD-HELP. In Southeast Florida, the organization’s annual Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale 5K, taking place in Downtown Fort Lauderdale on April 28, 2024, has raised more than $3.7 million since 2011. Under MADD Southeast Florida, hundreds of free events take place each year to educate youth and parents on the dangers and consequences of impaired driving in Broward, Palm Beach, and St. Lucie Counties.
