Branches Online Auction to End Today
The "Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala" has been tranformed into a spectacular online auction
There are just days left to support the online auction for Branches, the organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty. During the Covid-19 emergency, Branches has been continuously educating and tutoring students online, providing financial coaching, tax services and help with unemployment applications, as well as serving over 10,000 grab-and-go meals. While Branches had to cancel its much-anticipated Black Tie & Blue Jeans event, the organization refused to stop working and instead turned what was an annual social occasion into an online extravaganza. Now we can all go online and bid! Click here and find: pages of weekend stays in luxury homes and hotels; designer clothing and accessories; experiences to enjoy in the air, at sea and at home; treatments for beauty and body…and more.
Even Miami’s most esteemed socializers are rising to the occasion. Branches asked its top gala sponsors to please turn their sponsorships into donations. And perhaps because Trish and Dan Bell promised to match each one, dollar-to-dollar, every single sponsor agreed, including Top Sponsors Himan Brown Charitable Trust, The Tonkinson Foundation, Sandy and Rod Bell, Scott Huizenga, Kathy and Scott Howard, Bilzin Sumberg, Truist, Victoria & Jason Randolph, Publix, Aetna, City National Bank, Missy & Jim Morgan, Center State Bank, Bank United, JP Morgan Chase, Crowe LLP and many others. It all ends Friday.
