2018 Be A Voice, Moments of BrillianceSaturday, January 13, 7pm-12am – Mandarin Oriental, 500 Brickell Bay Drive, Miami Brickell

Voices For Children Foundation, the largest of the non-profits that supports the Guardian ad Litem Program in Florida, kicked off the winter gala season and held its Moments Of Brilliance, Be A Voice Gala 2018 at the serene Mandarin Oriental, Miami, presented by Harry Winston. Now in its 22nd year, the esteemed gala was not only attended by 400 of the city’s luminaries in philanthropy and business; but more importantly, it also raised over 740,000 dollars that ultimately facilitates advocacy for children in foster care in Miami Dade County.

The sparkling evening began with an intimate cocktail reception in the plush ballroom area, transformed by a dazzling display of Harry Winston jewelry and timepiece creations for guests to admire and enjoy. Following the cocktail, guests danced to spinning tunes by DJ Kucha and bid on a live auction for a variety of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that included: a retreat in Aspen, a wine immersion in Chile, a Miami experience with the Miami Heat and the Fontainebleau and so much more. 

As dinner was beginning, guests were engaged with a thought-provoking perspective from Bradel, a brave young woman who was able to eloquently speak about her experience as a victim of human trafficking. Now working full-time as a Mentor-Survivor with current victims of human trafficking, she concluded her speech with, “I now get to stand in their corner and be their voice and instill in them the hope that they can be more than their labels.”
