Join supporters of Florida Heart Research Institute’s Fourth Annual “Limo to Lunch,” a Driven to Dine experience. This is an exciting lunch concept where groups of ten are driven by limousine to a surprise restaurant in Miami for a fun, unique and swanky dining affair. The morning will begin with a reception and informal modeling on Level Two at Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour. Each group of 10 will select a sealed envelope containing the name of one of several top restaurants and chefs in South Florida.

As guests prepare to set off for their adventure, each limousine group will select a sealed envelope containing the name of one of South Florida’s top restaurants and chefs who will host the group for a heart-healthy lunch. Guests will be driven in a luxurious limousine to the mystery restaurant for a fabulous multi-course lunch and then returned to Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour where each participant will receive a gift bag at approximately 2:30 p.m.
