Vizcaya Ball: “Rock Your Rococo” Ball
Chaired by Christy & David Martin, Alexa & Adam Wolman and Benefiting Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
More than 400 guests rocked the night away during the 63rd Annual Vizcaya Ball. A staple on Miami’s social calendar, the event raised funds for the continued preservation of this National Historic Landmark, ensuring it can continue to serve as a community resource for another 100 years.
As they arrived at the historic Cascade, guests walked through the doors of Versailles down a glittering gold carpet and were greeted by a myriad of dancers and performers representing various artistic disciples of the rococo period featuring Doll & Alek and Dance Now!. The cocktail reception took everyone back to the height of European Rococo elegance with sumptuous appetizers and charcuterie presented on gilded frames.
Elegantly dressed trumpeters welcomed guests to the East Terrace for dinner overlooking Biscayne Bay, guests were treated to a delightful ballroom dance performance by the Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Miami Beach, followed by lively dubstep performance by New Century Dance Company featuring a stilt walker and dancers in full 18th century attire. Hosted by the lovely Roxy Vargas of NBC 6, the evening continued with entertainment and an elegant dinner with catering by A Joy Wallace Catering. Guests enjoyed an online silent auction and danced the night away to the sounds of the Danny Beck Band. The festivities concluded with a spectacular firework display high above the historic stone Barge.
The fundraiser was co-chaired by Christy and David Martin and Alexa and Adam Wolman. Vizcaya Ball Committee members included Jenni Coba, Aldy Concepcion, Victor Diaz, Swanee DiMare, Roxanna Garciga, Sonia Gibson, Linda Levy Goldberg, John Grisham, Gladys Rustan Hernando, Cathy Jones, Marile Lopez, Ariel Penzer Milgroom, James Murphy, Susan Rutrough, Timothy Walker, Josie Wang, Betty Wohl and Suzy Buckley Woodward.
