SOCIALManny: Episode 257
Lee Schrager, founder and director of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, hosted “Putting on the LBS” to raise funds for the Relief Fund to help independent restaurants and SocialMiami’s MANNY HERNANDEZ was there to capture the scene. The Fund, established by the SOBEWFF and the FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality Industry after the outbreak of the pandemic, has raised $1.6 million. The drive-by bake sale that has turned into the hottest local foodie sensation is from noon until sold out. On this occasion, Schrager was joined by Roxanne Vargas from NBC6, Lisa Petrillo of CBS4, Raúl de Molina of Univision Network and Louis Aguirre of ABC 10.
