Final Toast

| July 7, 2014 | Parties

After months of happy hours to bring attention to their respective charities, the participants of Miami magazine’s Ketel One’s Modern Hispanic Gentlemen program came together for one last hurrah. More than 200 guests gathered at the poolside deck of Area 31 to celebrate the philanthropic efforts of Steven Rodriguez, Felice Gorordo, Nelson Gonzalez and David LeBatard, who, for weeks prior to this final evening, had enticed their contacts to vote for their respective Ketel One-designed cocktails online as a way to bring attention to their charities of choice. After much mingling and tastings of all the men’s libations, LeBatard was announced as the initiative’s winner. His prize? A $5,000 check for his selected cause, Animal Recovery Mission. –‌Photography by Brett Hufziger
