Mayor Dale Holness’ minivan

Just days after announcing a curfew and new rules to combat spread of COVID-19, Broward Mayor Dale Holness held a fundraiser at a packed Lauderhill restaurant. The Saturday night fundraiser took place at Joy’s Roti Delight, a two-story restaurant complex with several large banquet rooms. Despite an outcry from our original story, Dale Holness’ minivan was parked outside the restaurant ninety-minutes after the scheduled start of the event.

There was a large crowd inside at the take-out counter. A disco ball whirled in the second floor window while music could be heard from a distance. More than a dozen patrons were visible on the restaurant’s covered patio.

While it was well before the new 11pm curfew, it was clear there were more than ten people gathered inside. Let’s hope everyone inside wore face masks!
