Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade will host its sixth annual “Wild About Kids” black-tie optional gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Brickell. Guests will enjoy a unique “live” red carpet welcome, as well as a cocktail reception, live music, dinner and a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind items, and more.
Attendees, including South Florida’s top community leaders, will have the opportunity at the event to sponsor a child through donations. The gala emcee will be Lynn Martinez, anchor of WSVN’s Deco Drive. Danell Leyva, who won the bronze medal at the London 2012 Summer Olympics for men’s gymnastics, will be honored at the event with Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hometown Hero Award. He will also be speaking, and taking photos/having a meet & greet with Bronze Sponsors and higher. Leyva, who came to the US from Cuba when he was a young boy with his mother and sister, is an inspirational example of the American Dream.
Attendees will have the option to continue the celebration at an after party at the Four Seasons which will include a full bar and tapas-style food. Admission to the after party is $50 per person.
Gala proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade and its programs benefitting over 10,000 area children. For tickets and table and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Astrid H. Ehrenstein at 305-446-9910 ext. 30 or email@example.com.
