Miami’s celebrities and politicians were out in force, recently, for the 19th Annual InterContinental Miami™ Make-A-Wish Ball. The event included CYInterview friends Lea Black of The Real Housewives of Miami, shoe designer Lisa Pliner and PR Powerhouse Tara Solomon.
New acquaintances we made included Jackie Siegel of the newsworthy 2012 documentary film The Queen of Versailles and Miami news anchor and meteorologist Trina Robinson of WTVJ’s NBC 6.
Celebrities and newsmakers we met and CYInterviewed for the first time included legendary boxing promoter Don King, former Governor of Florida Charlie Crist and actress Gabrielle Anwar. You will get to read and hear those conversations in the coming days, here on CYInterview.
The evening’s festivities raised money for the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida™ chapter, to grant kids’, who have life threatening health challenges, their special wishes. Some of the guests pledged anywhere from four figures to six figures to help these children achieve their desires. The big Miami party’s theme this year was magic, with a vaudevillian era experience.
Guests were treated to a live auction hosted by Gabrielle Anwar, a concert by Grammy nominated music star Adam Lambert of American Idol fame and an after party with a fashion show.
Below you will find our photos with the people who made it a special night to remember at the InterContinental Miami hotel:
