While guests enjoy a sumptuous cocktail party and live auction, a representative from each group of eight will select a sealed envelope containing the name of one of South Florida’s top restaurants and chefs. Guests depart in their luxurious limousines to a mystery restaurant for a fabulous multi-course dinner, paired with fine wines. After a gourmet dining experience, limos will return guests to the home where they began their adventure, and VIP goodie bags will be distributed to each guest. Bring your own limo group or join a group being put together. The cost is $5,000 per limo or $625.00 per person.
