Kristi House is celebrating a milestone year in 2015: 20 years of healing the hearts of children who have been sexually abused. A Roaring 20s Soiree, an event to commemorate the 20 years of service, will be held on Friday, November 6, 2015, at Miami’s Four Seasons Hotel.
This elegant evening will have all the hallmark features of Kristi House’s long-running, signature Touch a Heart Dinner – great cuisine, fine wine and a luxury auction – with live orchestra music for dancing and cigars and brandy to cap off the evening – for a roaring good time!
Co-chairs of the Roaring 20s Soiree are Maria Maloof and Kara Zeder, both board members of Kristi House, who are dedicated to creating a festive night to be remembered by supporters and friends of Kristi House. The Honorary Wine Committee includes some of South Florida’s top collectors and wine aficionados, headed up by Sue Gallagher, Kate Callahan and Peter Benjamin.
Four Seasons’ Chef Aaron has created a scrumptious, four-course gourmet dinner menu, and Republic National Distributing Company will provide fine wine pairings. An auction is in the works with exclusive trips, one-of-a-kind experiences, not-available-in-stores fine wines and select luxury items.
Sadly, childhood sexual abuse is not limited by socio-economic status, race, religion or nationality. Most of the children and families Kristi House treats have no other place to turn to for help. Funds raised from the Roaring 20s Soiree will help ensure that services remain at no cost to clients, and that no child and family are ever turned away.
Tickets are $500 per person; $5,000 for a table of ten. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.KristiHouse.org, or contact Kristi House Development Director Natalie Brown at 305-547-6832 or NBrown@KristiHouse.org
