South Florida’s charity leaders came together for an evening of food and drinks, networking and photography at SocialMiami’s “A Grand Gathering.” The annual photo shoot recognizes individuals who are chairing events to benefit local non-profit organizations and honors their leadership and community service.

Lionheart Capital hosted the shoot at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Residences Miami Beach, where drinks flowed freely and savory hors d’oeuvres and sushi, provided by Eggwhites Catering, were enjoyed by all.

Founding Partners of Lionheart Capital Ophir Sternberg and Ricardo Dunin mingled with guests and welcomed the group to the Piero Lissoni-designed project that will offer luxury waterfront living with spectacular amenities, set in a quiet corner of Miami Beach where lake, ocean and waterway meet.

Gala chairs and honorees alike, dressed in their Miami best, socialized and talked “shop,” enthusiastically touting their special events. Hair stylists and make-up artists from GlamSquad, an on-demand, in-home beauty service, were on hand with stations where guests could have last minute touch-ups before having their photos taken.
