On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, The Vizcayans will host their sixth annual Preservation Luncheon, fondly referred to as the “Hat Luncheon,” at the historic Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The al-fresco luncheon will be blossoming with stylish hats and elegant attire galore, reminiscent of fashionable daytime soirees in the formal Italianate gardens, which were a tradition in Vizcaya’s early years as James Deering’s European-inspired home, opened in 1916.

The afternoon will begin with a glorious cocktail reception where guests will sip on champagne and enjoy decadent hors d’oeuvres.

Guests then proceed to a lavish dining experience in a beautifully decorated pavilion that includes an exquisite four-course catered lunch.

The Vizcayan’s Preservation Luncheon, inspired by the Central Park Conservancy’s “Hat luncheon” held each year in New York, was founded by Norma Quintero in 2009 during her term as president of the Vizcayans in an effort to raise money to protect the estate’s viewshed. All proceeds from this and all Vizcayans events currently benefit a comprehensive restoration plan for Vizcaya’s buildings, gardens and outdoor statuary.
