How's this for a Valentine's Day treat? A night with Alec Mapa. The hilarious award-winning actor and comedian is debuting his act in South Florida on February 13th.

Mapa is performing for one night only at the Broward Center's Arts Amaturo Theater to benefit Fort Lauderdale's largest HIV/AIDS community service organization, Broward House.

He's best known for his work on the hit TV shows Ugly Betty (where he plays "Fashion Buzz" reporter Suzuki St Pierre) and Desperate Housewives (where he plays a Gaby's best friend and personal shopper).

More recently Alec was seen in Alec was also spotted recently on the big screen in films Marley and Me and this past summer comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

Proceeds from his performance will benefit Broward House. Founded in 1988, the Broward House is a non-profit organization that was brought together by a group of concerned individuals who realized some Broward County residents that were HIV positive were in desperate need for some quality care and support services and Broward House was born.

Today, Broward House impacts the lives of 5,000 Broward County residents living, at risk for, or affected by the HIV/AIDS virus every year.

As the needs of the HIV/AIDS community grew and evolved, Broward House responded and developed programs and services to meet those needs.

Today, Broward House offers both assisted living and independent family living, medical respite, case management, client advocacy, HIV testing and counseling, street outreach, a variety of education and prevention programs, chemical dependency treatment, mental health therapy, and support groups.

Reservations are now available to the general public for this one night exclusive performance. You won't want to miss out on this hilarious benefit performance and we hope to see you all there.

Ticket prices range from $55-$65. Please check http://www.browardcenter.org/browardhousefundraiser/ for more information.
