About Swanky Soiree

The annual Swanky Soirée will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6:30-9:30 pm in the lobby of the beautiful Mahaffey Theater in downtown Saint Petersburg. Join us for an elegant evening of fabulous food, decadent desserts, wonderful wines, a live auction, and a high-wattage fashion show, all benefiting Brookwood Florida!

Now approaching its sixth year, Swanky Soirée has ballooned into one of the most hotly-anticipated events in Tampa Bay, pulling in sponsors and guests from as far away as Sarasota, Miami, Tampa, the beaches, and beyond! This year is bigger than ever as we host Saks Fifth Avenue for the fashion show! Also, you don’t want to miss their pop-up shop at the event!

The party continues September 18th! Enjoy Franco-American cuisine by Michael’s on East, paired with rare and fine wines, at our exclusive Sponsor Dinner! You don’t want to miss these events!

Founded in 1927, Brookwood Florida provides a unique, life-changing residential program for non-pregnant, non-addicted, at-risk girls between the ages of 13 and 21. The agency typically serves between 100 and 110 girls per year who have suffered abuse, neglect, homelessness and serious family dysfunction. Along with a safe and nurturing environment, Brookwood provides a four-part program that includes education, job skills training, independent living preparation, and mental health counseling. The agency also offers three residential tiers with increasingly more independent living conditions to help our clients move steadily toward self-sufficiency and reintegration within the community.

Special thanks to Thomas Bruce Studio

Swanky Soirée has been lucky enough to have award winning Photographer Carol Walker and her team from Thomas Bruce Studio capturing every different aspect of our event. Her contemporary style fits the Swanky tone perfectly. All of the imagery throughout our site is courtesy of this talent. Keep an eye on your email and our Facebook page post-event for links to imagery from the evening!
