“Limo to Lunch or Spa” is a fun, unique and exciting event that will take place on November 8, 2013, beginning at Neiman Marcus in Coral Gables. The morning will begin with a reception, informal modeling and chances to win a “raffle in a box.” Each group of 10 guests will select a sealed envelope containing the name of a top restaurant in South Florida or the spa. From the reception, guests will be driven in luxurious limousines to their mystery restaurant for a fabulous multi-course “heart healthy” lunch.

One group will enjoy a light lunch and mini spa treatment at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne. After an amazing lunch and socializing, limos will return guests to Neiman Marcus in Coral Gables where each participant will receive a gift bag. This year’s co-chairs are Raphael Bastian, Lana DeSimone, Joanne Silva and Rosy Cancela. The cost is $2,000 per limo or $200 per person.
