September 2016 Newsletter

September 2016

My friends,

YOUR votes lead the ACOF down a different path.
YOU decided to come back to Fort Lauderdale.
YOU warmed up to coming during the winter season.
YOU wanted to be as close as possible to Wilton Manors,
So, we booked the RAMADA FORT LAUDERDALE OAKLAND PARK INN, the closest hotel to the Drive.
At $150 a night, we undercut the other hotels by $100 (with NO RESORT FEE!)

Complimentary Shuttle Service FTL Airport/Ramada 
Complimentary Parking 
Discounts and prizes at Sponsored Bars & Businesses

NOW we’re lining up SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS for the A Celebration of Friends, January Jamboree 2017.

The dimensions of the hotel will give the vendors close proximity while the guests will have four days and nights filled with access to every bar and business throughout the city. (Almost time to start double dosing on your vitamins!)

Go to our homepage, www.celebrationoffriends.organd find out all about our 2017 January Jamboree. We’re downsizing into a smaller hotel this year but finally returning home... All registration and reservations will be on a first come/first serve basis.

Once you register with the ACOF, instructions will be given on room reservations.

Contestants are signing up for our Mr. ACOF 2017 Contest. This year we have the entire city involved.

So far, we’ve scheduled:

  1. A Saturday Night Toga Party
  2. A ’Beautiful Boxer’ Contest
  3. and people are already signing up for our annual “Speedo” Contest.

Time is running fast, please submit any ideas for any special contests you have for this year to

If you are looking for roommates, rides or questions about next year, please go to the forum/message board first on the website.

At the age of 92, CHUCK (Chuckee) Kennedy passed Sunday Morning 08/07/2016. Chuckee was the ACOF artist responsible for our logo and a member of our original Board. His smiling face and cheerful attitude was present at every one of our first 13 Celebrations. RIP Chuckee. Thank you for being part of our life.

See you soon!

The Board,
A Celebration of Friends, Inc.
