13th Annual “The Auction” Uncork & Unwind
Nearly $1.3 million was raised to lift up and help those experiencing homelessness in Miami-Dade.
The Loews Coral Gables Hotel played host to this one-of-a-kind wine and dine event that featured an amazing gourmet dinner prepared by James Beard award winning Chef Michelle Bernstein with hilarious entertainment by Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author & Humorist Dave Barry. We thank Lydia Fenet for serving as auctioneer for an incredibly diverse silent and live auction offering fabulous wines, jewelry, travel, and lifestyle items. This year’s top selling auction item was a Luxurious Evening of Great Food and Wine with Chef Nelly Farra for twelve lucky winners.
