On March 13 many of South Florida’s most fashion-forward philanthropists will fill Vizcaya Museum and Gardens with a kaleidoscope of spring color and an array of sensational hats! It’s frivolous and fun, but serious in its mission. Luncheon funds are dedicated to safeguarding this National Historic landmark and cultural hub for future generations. There is much to be accomplished at Vizcaya in 2018 and years to come. The strategic plan for a unified Vizcaya aims for the Village to realize its full potential as a community resource through innovative programming for locals and visitors alike and to relate the full history of the estate.
