Charity Event Features A Cocktail Reception & Grammy-Winner’s Performance
Actress and filmmaker Gabrielle Anwar will return as celebrity emcee of the event, which is chaired by philanthropist Shareef Malnik. The theme of this year’s ball is Mystical Music Box inspired by enchantment, fantasy and art.
The evening begins the way such an evening should, with a lavish cocktail reception with specialty cocktails and gourmet food stations while bidding at the Ball’s silent auction, known as one of the most extravagant at any gala in South Florida, teeming with coveted items and experiences donated by top hospitality, entertainment, fashion and luxury brands.
The Grand Ballroom will open its doors at 8:30 p.m. for dinner and dancing, followed by Anwar returning for the seventh consecutive year as celebrity emcee. The evening will close with a performance by the four time Grammy-award winning, multi-platinum-selling Kravitz, presented by the Finker-Frenkel Legacy Foundation.
The official after-party, the InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Nightclub presented by E11EVEN MIAMI, Downtown Miami’s 24/7 ultraclub will be held immediately following the Ball at the InterContinental® Miami featuring a celebrity DJ, special performances by E11EVEN THEATR11CS, and a runway fashion show presented by Brickell City Centre’s Saks Fifth Avenue.
Tickets for the Nightclub are $125 in advance and $150 at the door, but for those already attending the Ball prior, there is no charge.
“The Ball has underwritten the cost of thousands of bucket-list experiences for South Florida families coping with a child’s life-threatening medical condition and, under the direction of Gala Chair Shareef Malnik and Gala Host Robert Hill, continues to deliver an experience for attendees that is unlike any other,” said Norm Wedderburn, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida President & CEO.
