Bling It On! Presented by the Seybold Building

Benefiting Strong Girls Inc.

Joseph & Virginia Akar, Hosts
Co-Chairs Cristian & Gianni LaCapra and Sloane & Gavin Spanierman

Over 300 guests shopped 13 stores open for one night only and enjoyed delicacies from Toro Toro, Mignonette, Vincent Gourmet, Peruvian Fusion and more, not to mention the incredible cocktails from Moet Hennessy, Blackened American Whiskey, One With Life Tequila, and more!

The Historic Seybold Building, which is now in the process of getting its first real face-lift, was already under construction during the event, but we were able to disguise the work and transform the first floor corridor into a glistening hall with beautiful decor, live music, a DJ and a silent auction.

Our Strong Girls were present and spoke to the crowd so beautifully and confidently about their experience in our program. Funds raised during this first of its kind interactive gala will support our Strong Girls after school programs in 5 schools serving 150 girls throughout Miami-Dade County.
