10th Annual Friends of St. Jude Miami “It’s All About The Kids”

10th Annual Friends of St. Jude Miami “It’s All About The Kids”Saturday, September 30, 7pm-1am – Eden Roc Miami Beach, 4525 Collins Ave, Miami Beach

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Friends of St. Jude (FOSJ) Miami, the young professionals group dedicated to raising awareness and funding for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, invited the South Florida community to the 10th Annual International Dermatology It’s All About the Kids signature event, presented by the Andrés Asion Foundation. 

This year, FOSJ Miami recognized community activist and philanthropist, Wendy Grant, with the “Stephan Gutierrez Award.” Wendy had been part of FOSJ Miami since its inception and her tireless dedication to the mission of St. Jude has been unparalleled and worthy of this recognition.

“Both my parents passed away from cancer and I saw firsthand the grueling effects of this disease,” said Wendy Grant. “My heartfelt belief is that no child should suffer from cancer. Children should be out in the playground with their friends, not getting treatments in hospitals. All kids deserve a chance in life and cancer has impeded that for too many.”

International Dermatology served as the event’s title sponsor for the ninth consecutive year, and the presenting sponsor, for the past seven years, was the Andres Asion Foundation. The event featured a tasting menu with dishes inspired from around the world and cocktails, as well as entertainment by Cuban music sensation, Jacob Forever, and DJ Mike Russell.

Missoni Baia Ground Breaking

Missoni Baia Ground BreakingThursday, October 12, 5pm – Missoni Baia Sales Gallery, 777 N.E. 26th Terrace, Miami

OKO Group, the Miami-based development company founded by real estate magnate and prolific international developer, Vladislav Doronin, has announced the groundbreaking of its 57-story luxury condominium tower Missoni Baia, located in the fast-growing Edgewater neighborhood in Miami. The 649-foot-tall tower, represents the first of OKO Group’s four Miami projects, as well as the first-ever branded residences from the legendary Italian fashion and design house, Missoni. The worlds of fashion and design will merge as Rosita Missoni joins Vladislav Doronin and his design team, including Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture of Asymptote Architecture and New York designer Paris Forino, in marking the momentous occasion for the globally acclaimed Missoni brand.

Located in the popular Edgewater neighborhood of Miami, Missoni Baia will bring expert integration of style, craftsmanship and engineering to life, resulting in a residential experience of unmatched quality and a striking edifice that marks its presence on waterfront and skyline alike. The tower will consist of 249 elegantly crafted residences, each ranging from one to five bedrooms, and 776 square feet to 3,788 square feet. The interior design of the building incorporates Missoni’s trademark colorful design palette and Missoni Home furniture collection in inventive ways, including in all public spaces and amenities. Residents have access to a full suite of luxurious amenities designed in collaboration with Missoni, offering the comforts of a luxurious resort in a private residential setting. Features include a flow-through deck designed for all-day sunbathing with well-appointed cabanas, five swimming pools including an Olympic-sized lap pool, hot and cold plunge pools, a children’s pool, and an infinity-edge pool on the Bayfront Terrace, elevated tennis court and an expansive fitness center and spa overlooking the bay.

Missoni Baia’s contemporary architecture is the vision of New York-based Asymptote Architecture, led by Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture, pioneers in the convergence of technology and art in architecture. The firm is best known for its unorthodox and eye-catching international projects including the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi hotel which straddles a Formula 1 racetrack and the upcoming Hermitage Modern Contemporary Museum in Moscow. Missoni Baia is a sculptural tower with an innovative, streamlined, high-performance structure, as evidenced by the aerodynamic super-columns that render the glass façades almost entirely mullion-free. The fin-like corner columns echo the sails and sleek hulls of super-yachts—a fitting metaphor, given the building’s prominent waterfront setting. Landscaping of tropical planting and reflection pools, designed by renowned Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea, weave together the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Many of the 249 residences offer floor-through layouts with multiple exposures and views of the city, the bay, Miami Beach, and the ocean beyond. Other larger living options include, three dramatic duplex townhomes boasting expansive private terraces near the water’s edge, and two spacious penthouses with an option to combine into one larger unit. New York-based interior designer Paris Forino, known for her high-end custom private homes, has conceptualized neutral, but luxurious backdrops for a broad range of furnishings and art.
