After months of excited anticipation, 160 guests waited patiently in line to enter Regina’s Farm in Fort Lauderdale on the evening of November 4, 2023. At six o’clock sharp, the gates opened and the warm smiles of Regina, Pastor Silva (Regina’s husband), and their staff welcomed everyone.

Guests admired the playful and colorful scene before them as they walked in awe past the large outdoor kitchen to red checkered tables with Brazilian music playing softly in the background. Multicolored flags crisscrossed and danced in the sky above the immense farmyard, while chickens roosted undisturbed nearby. Bubbles shimmered and floated randomly, while a tractor pulling a small caboose delighted both the children and the adults who jumped aboard for a ride. These are but a few elements that fostered an enchanted and unforgettable evening.

The true attraction of Regina’s Farm is the culinary experience it offers, which has created a year’s long waitlist. Regina and her staff prepare an extraordinary number of homecooked dishes, with many based upon recipes from Regina’s home region of Minas Gerais in Brazil. To start, our guests enjoyed a variety of five soups and fresh baked Brazilian cheese bread, the main course followed, and guests served themselves from large pots homecooked stews of beef and oxtail, chicken, or grouper (to name but a few), as well as plentiful vegetarian and vegan options.
For those that could manage, no less than 12 dessert options were then available to be enjoyed with traditional Brazilian coffee.

The goal of A Night Out at Regina’s Farm was both philanthropic and celebratory. Each ticket purchased raised helped raise more than $17,000 in support of the Broward College General Scholarship Fund. To mark this achievement, student leaders Angelina Castro and Jasmine Gamble provided a highlight of the evening when they spoke so eloquently to the power and impact of scholarships in their own lives.
