Here's the latest from around Wilton Manors!

 

Survey takers wanted

During the Wilton Manors Stonewall Parade and Street Festival on Saturday, June 17, survey takers are needed from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The purpose of the surveys is to compile information on how many people attend the festival and how they plan to spend their money while in Wilton Manors and, if they’re from out of the area, in Broward County. The overall goal is to use that information to get more support, financial and otherwise, for the event from organizations such as the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. Those interested should send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 954-390-2123.

 

Pet rescue fundraiser

A fundraiser to benefit The Furever Family Rescue will take place on Saturday, May 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Village Pub, 2283 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors. The event is a Kentucky Derby themed happy hour and features raffles, drink specials, and a “Best Dressed” pet contest. The event is hosted by Charlie’s Friends, “a volunteer group dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support the efforts of local pet rescue organizations in Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach.” The mission of Furever Family Rescue is to “Rescue, Restore and Rehome as many lost souls into Furever Families as possible. Until every cage is empty and every back alley is quiet. Until every critter knows love and has their own Furever Family . . . We will press on!” Visit FurEverFamily.wixsite.com/tffr for more information.

 

Lock It or Lose It

The Wilton Manors Police Department is launching its “Lock It or Lose It” campaign, a partnership between the community and police which aims to reduce crime by reducing the number of opportunities thieves have to take valuables. “The Wilton Manors Police Department strongly encourages community members to participate in this campaign by not leaving valuables in plain view in their vehicles. It takes a person seconds to break into a vehicle, grab what is in plain view and get away with your property. Most importantly police say, hide your valuables, lock your vehicle, and/or take your valuables with you.”
