Last Week in Review
On Thursday, Adams Interiors presented the 3rd annual Evening of Elegance to benefit the Hospice by the Sea Foundation. The event featured live music by Atlantis, magician Stephan, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, open bar, fabulous raffles, and a silent and live auction. We were in awe about all their beautiful contemporary furniture and custom accessories as Adams Interiors has pieces you have not seen anywhere else! Congratulations to Mike Flick, Mike P and Christine on another fabulous benefit!
There was so much going on this past Saturday that it was impossible for me to cover it all, so we split up the staff to try and cover everything. In Fort Lauderdale the South Florida Wind Ensemble took the Amatiro theatre of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts by storm with their sold out concert “Beyond Borders, The Music of Our World.” Also that night, the Pride Center and Equality Park presented a benefit entitled “An Evening in Paradise” at the beautiful home of Jim Walker. There was a silent auction with fabulous items as well as some incredible speakers all to benefit our wonderful Pride Center. In Miami the Miami Beach’s LGBT Visitor Center sponsored by MetLife, hosted a visual art exhibition, titled “This Art is So Gay,” with the artist reception coinciding with Sleepless Night. Afterwards we continued the Sleepless Night party by heading over to The Palace for some performances by Noel Leon, Erika Norell and Tiffany Fantasia. I then headed back to Fort Lauderdale to attend 2 events.
First I poped my head into the Ramrod for their monthly Pig Dance which brings out all the leather aficionados, bears and all their admirers and then I headed to The Manor for my friend, Viva Mirage’s (Miss Noche Latina 2011), 7 year anniversary of doing female impersonation. The Latin Lounge and Patio were even more packed then they normally are and this just goes to show you how loved Viva is. Congrats Viva!
