Safari 2016: The Hunt for Shelter

A Roaring Good Time 

More than 100 people dressed in animal print and headed out on Safari without ever leaving West Palm Beach. The Homeless Coalition's happy hour fundraiser at the Lake Pavilion delivered on its promise that Safari 2016: The Hunt for Shelter would be a roaring good time. Dancing under orange lights to music by Smooth Bounce Entertainment, guests sipped orange Real Change-tinis to kick off Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month. 

West Palm Beach Mayor, Jeri Muoio read a proclamation declaring the week of November 12 through 20 Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Mayor Muoio and City Commissioners served as honorary chairs for the event which raises funds for the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County and The Real Change Movement.

The Real Change Movement allows the public to be directly involved with funding permanent housing for the homeless by donating coins or swiping their credit cards at the ten orange parking meters around downtown West Palm Beach.
