Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services Arabian Nights’ GalaSaturday, March 14, 7:30pm – The Temple House, 1415 Euclid Avenue, Miami Beach

Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services, Inc., Miami-Dade’s only 24-hour emergency shelter for abused, neglected and abandoned youth, hosted its signature fundraiser, Arabian Nights’ Gala, at The Temple House on Miami Beach. This year’s edition transported guests to an enchanted evening in the mystical setting of ancient Arabia, with CBS4 Anchor, Cynthia Demo as MC. Hundreds of the community’s activists, business leaders and philanthropists in attendance enjoyed a silent auction, music and vibrant sights and sounds inspired by the whimsical setting, rich cuisine by Thierrys Catering and Events Design, Hookah Lounge, and live entertainment by Belly by Kelly.

“Year after year, with the help of countless supports and sponsors, our gala has raised pivotal funds toward the support of thousands of children and teenagers who have sought out our shelters in great need,” said Marlene Quintana, who is chairing the event for the fourth consecutive year.  “Thanks to this kind of outpouring from the surrounding community, we have been able to provide critical refuge and care for these youth — but most importantly, hope.”

Annually, Miami Bridge shelters more than 1,000 youth and counsels more than 550 families.  Services to youth in crisis include counseling, family counseling, mentoring, life-skill training and on-site Miami-Dade County Public School education. Funds raised through “Arabian Nights” will go toward bolstering that multi-pronged outreach.
