Within the grand ballroom, adorned in tapestries of brilliant reds and golds, guests (with flutes of Spanish Cava in-hand) will by mesmerized by the exuberant, theatrical flair of Spanish guitarists and the beauty of pirouetting flamenco dancers. Guests will take a culinary journey to the Iberian Peninsula with a delectable menu prepared by award-winning Biltmore chefs Michael Vietta, David Hackett and Olivier Rodriguez. Amidst the gowns and tuxedos, many event-goers – as per the tradition of years past – will opt for designs in step with the theme, donning matador-fashioned suits or flamenco-style dresses.

A number of prominent members of the community will also be honored, including Manny Medina and the Medina Family for the Willy Bermello Legacy Award presented by Greenberg Traurig; Jon & Nancy Batchelor for the Arts & Culture Award; Swanee & Paul DiMare for the Jerry Santeiro Community Award; Tom and Marie-Ilene Whitehurst for the Philanthropy Award presented by Paul & Swanee DiMare; Mike Lowell for the Sports & Wellness Award presented by Doctors Hospital and Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute; Dave Lawrence for the Education Award and Bacardi for the Landmark Award presented by The Biltmore.
