The Charity Guild is one of the oldest charitable organizations in Fort Lauderdale. We were founded in 1952 by ten women who wanted to help children in need. That is still our mission.

We raise funds for both Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) and Kids in Distress (KID).

We are so grateful for the 20 local corporate sponsors that helped make this possible.
The Crossing For A Cure is a long-distance endurance paddle challenge and international championship race that takes paddlers 80 miles across the Gulf Stream from Bimini in the Bahamas back to the Florida mainland. The event was inspired because of the incredible health benefits of the Ocean for those living with cystic fibrosis, a terminal lung disease. Travis Suit’s daughter Piper was diagnosed with CF when she was four years old. The Crossing For A Cure is a vehicle and mechanism for driving awareness, fundraising, inspiration, improved quality of life, and social innovation in the cystic fibrosis community. Through the Piper’s Angels Foundation and our programs, we are able to make a lifelong impact on the patients and families facing the challenges of this heart-breaking terminal disease. With every stroke of your paddle during your training and on the Crossing, you can hold this understanding and intention in your mind and heart. This is why we paddle.
Since 2010, A Prom To Remember has partnered with many Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County hospitals to give hundreds of teens in the South Florida area the night of their lives – their own Prom! Every year, hundreds of teens in South Florida and Cleveland experience something many of us take for granted – their Prom! This night is a milestone occasion, a reason to celebrate! There’s just something special about getting dressed up, riding in a limo to the Ritz Carlton, walking down the red carpet with a celebrity to the sounds of applause, taking Prom photos, enjoying amazing food and dancing to the DJ playing the latest tunes…there’s simply no experience like this!
