Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade 11th Annual “Wild About Kids” GalaSaturday, November 11, 6:30pm-12am – JW Marriott Marquis Miami, 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade hosted its 11th annual black-tie “Wild About Kids” Gala at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. The theme of this year’s event was “The Great Gatsby,” produced by by WOW Factor. The event kicked off with a cocktail reception, silent auction and fashion showcase of evening and formal wear courtesy of Bloomingdale’s at The Falls, followed by dinner, program, dancing, live entertainment by the band “The Culture” from Hammocks Entertainment, and special live performance by Latin pop duo SanLuis. South Florida’s top community leaders, philanthropists and socialites had a special opportunity at the event to sponsor a child through donations.

This year’s “Wild About Kids” Gala chairs were Juan José Delgado and Jorge Luis López, with Olga Guilarte as the special event chair. During the festivities, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade  honor the late Michael S. Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., developer of Harvey, a cardiopulmonary patient simulator used at nearly 700 medical centers around the world; and his widow Mrs. Lynda Gordon, with the Charles “Bebe” Rebozo Humanitarian Award.

The gala proceeds will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive programs, including after school programs, homework assistance, computer training, social skills, dance, arts & crafts, professional mentoring, and summer and athletic programs, for area children who need them the most. Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade has been serving youth in the community since 1940. What once was a single building and site for boys has grown to five Clubs serving thousands of boys and girls year round, providing programs in the areas of character and leadership development, educational enhancement, career preparation, health and life skills, cultural arts and sports, fitness and recreation. Club staffing, initiatives, and programs are designed to inspire and enable young people and provide them with the resources to succeed and share in the American Dream.
