On Saturday, November 10th, Destination Fashion presented by Micky and Madeleine Arison returns for the first time since three years ago at its last event in Bal Harbour. This season’s must-attend event will benefit The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis with the help of many special events happening this year: an exclusive Emilio Pucci Spring 2013 fashion show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, a concert by Enrique Iglesias, a silent auction and much more.
Tom Brokaw will be this year’s Master of Ceremonies, known for being a special correspondent for NBC News and one of the most phenomenal figures in broadcast journalism, along with Honorary Co-Chairs, Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones and wife Dawn Jones. Others that will headline the event include, International Polo star Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras and his wife Delfina Blaquier.
According to NFL Hall of Famer and Buoniconti Fund Founder Nick Buoniconti, many will enjoy the event and the outpouring of support is just wonderful.
“Each year we are amazed by the level of entertainment and support we receive from our friends around the globe, and this year is no different. We are thrilled to have Peter Dundas, the world renowned Emilio Pucci designer, share his Spring 2013 fashions with us thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour, and to have international music star Enrique Iglesias headline our event,” said Buoniconti.
The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis continues its commitment each year by being the fundraising arm of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. To make this event a great success, many celebrities, business leaders, philanthropist and fashion icons come together in efforts to help such a great cause.
“With the support of our long-time friend and outstanding journalist Tom Brokaw, who will emcee this phenomenal affair, and involvement from Academy Award Winning Actor Tommy Lee Jones, Dawn Jones, Nacho Figueras and Delfina Blaquier, it will certainly be a night to remember that will go a long way in helping us raise much-needed funds for our efforts to cure paralysis,” says the Buoniconti Fund Founder.
Along with the festivities of the night, there will be a special award presentation of the Inspiration Award to Micky and Madeleine Arison, The Philanthropist Award to Beatrice and Dr. Sanford Ziff, the Humanitarian Award to Christine E. Lynn, the Champion for a Cure Award to Edie Laquer and the Laquer Foundation and The Buoniconti Fund Award to Paul and Swanee DiMare.
