Gabrielle Anwar danced the tango with Al Pacino in the movie Scent of a Woman and, most recently, starred as Fiona Glenanne in the USA Network TV show Burn Notice. In 1994, she was named one of People Magazine’s most beautiful people. Additionally, but no less of note, Ms. Anwar supports philanthropy in Miami. We spoke with the British actress at the 19th annual InterContinental Miami™ Make-A-Wish Ball.
On Monday November 4th, former Governor of Florida, then Republican, Charlie Crist announced his plans to challenge Florida’s current governor, Republican Rick Scott, in the upcoming 2014 election cycle. This time, Mr. Crist will be running as a Democrat.
Two days before his official announcement, Mr. Crist told CYInterview, at the InterContinental Miami™ Make-A-Wish Ball, that he was definitely going to run to be Governor of the Sunshine State again. The former Governor of Florida has taken time off from politics, since losing a race for the U.S. Senate in 2010 against Marco Rubio.
Don King has promoted some of the most compelling boxing matches in history. The controversial promoter is tied to some of the great heavyweight boxers of the latter portion of the 20th century, like Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson. Some of his most widely known accomplishments include the “Thrilla in Manila” between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier and “The Rumble in the Jungle” between Muhammad Ali and past CYInterview guest George Foreman [see here].
We caught up with the outsized boxing personality recently at the InterContinental Miami™ Make-A-Wish Ball, where Don told us what is coming up for him and gave his thoughts on the state of boxing.
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.
Over the last number of weeks we have brought you coverage of the 18th Annual Intercontinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball. If you haven’t already, you can check out our CYInterviews and encounters with Christian Slater [see here], Melanie Amaro [see here] Elaine Lancaster [see here] and Wayne Newton [see here]. Of greater importance, however, than the glitz, glamour and entertainment, the main reason for people coming together at this event, was to support an organization geared to granting the wishes of children dealing with formidable challenges.
