Fashion Loves Art
A commitment to Miami’s arts culture @BalHarbourShops
Continuing its commitment to the philanthropic community, Bal Harbour Shops partnered with over 50 local cultural organizations and charities for the 3rd annual Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) celebration as the guests shopped in support of their favorites causes.
This year, the event grew and was bigger and better with more stores participating by offering either a cash donation to a specific non-profit, or a portion of the night’s sales.
Art played a major role in the evening. Oscar de la Renta and Debra Scholl from Locust Project presented an evening of Flamenco dance and music. Locust also displayed an installation in the storefront windows.

Social Breakfast at the Betsy
Multi-million dollar hospital expansions, newly renovated botanical gardens, complex redevelopment projects for strife-torn Haiti, the arts, education – our heads were spinning at the latest Social Breakfast hosted by The Betsy.
As Michele Sadkin and I continue our quest to learn more about what’s happening in the community, we are awe-struck by the incredible projects underway by South Florida’s nonprofit organizations and the dedicated folks who are behind them.
Mingling in the elegant lobby of The Betsy, awaiting another extravagant breakfast feast, this time as guests of BLT, key personnel from a variety of charities and cultural organizations were getting to know one another and playing “nonprofit geography,” sharing knowledge and colleagues in common. The universal comment was, “We really should get together more often!”

Feeding South Florida (formerly Daily Bread Food Bank) is encouraging residents to join the fight against hunger during Hunger Action Month, Feeding America’s national movement to raise awareness and take action to help the 50 million Americans who experience hunger.
Throughout the month, Feeding America’s nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, including Feeding South Florida, is working to engage citizens to take action and help spread the word about how pervasive hunger is in every community.
