The Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon
The museum and gardens draws a glamorous and philanthropic crowdGala Guide
Each year approximately 300 guests from South Florida’s philanthropic society attend the Preservation Luncheon, also known as the hat luncheon, as attendees are encouraged to wear stylish hats. The luncheon raises funds to preserve and protect Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for the community.
The Preservation Luncheon begins with a late morning cocktail reception in the magnificent Vizcaya Gardens and continues with an elegant seated luncheon. This year we welcome you to join our fashionable fashion contest at the luncheon. All proceeds benefit the continued preservation of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
