American Cancer Society’s – “Up the River” Cruise


The 10th Annual “Up the River Cruise” is the final fundraiser of “Jail and Bail” and is one of the largest for the Broward unit of the American Cancer Society.

Setting sail from the Doubletree Hotel in Fort Lauderdale at 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30th, tickets are still available.

Following in the footsteps of NSU Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, and State Attorney Michael Satz, Roy Black continues the tradition of influential leaders that have lent their name and support in an effort to fight cancer. Serving as Master of Ceremonies on the cruise, Black is senior partner of Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf, P.A., and is one of the nation’s premier trial lawyers.

The three-hour “Up the River Cruise” on a gorgeous Sun Dream Yacht features great food, an open bar and a guest list of Broward’s most influential people. All inclusive at $135.00 per person, your charity donation to the American Cancer Society is used for research, patient services, advocacy and education.

Personal injury attorney David Singer has served as event chairman for 18 years.  “I’m very pleased at how well the committee worked on this event,” said Singer, who is managing partner of David W. Singer & Associates, in Hollywood. “They treated it seriously and helped us reach out to many people for pledges and participation.”

A cancer survivor himself, Sheriff Al Lamberti supports the research and treatment initiatives funded through the Cancer Society.  “As not only a cancer survivor, but a cancer conquer, I’m proud of what David Singer has done for cancer research and the American Cancer Society,” said Lamberti.

Having raised over $2 million the last two decades, this year’s Jail and Bail has raised more than $145,000 for the Broward unit of the American Cancer Society.
