On March 17th, Vizcaya was all about fashionable head-wear of all styles and colors for the 7th Annual Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon, also known as the “Hat Luncheon.” Over 300 guests attended the event which raises funds to preserve and protect Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for the community and future generations. Among the attendees were Miami’s social and philanthropic leaders. The Preservation Luncheon recalls an early Vizcaya tradition; swanky and stylish daytime events in the lush gardens. Committee member Christy Martin said, “I have great memories of Vizcaya. It’s just magical, to me it’s just a magical place.”
Guest sipped on cocktails courtesy of GREY GOOSE Vodka and catering was provided by Thierry’s Catering and Event Design. The soiree also included modeling of precious jewelry by GRAFF Diamonds, exquisite fashion looks from Oscar de la Renta, and entertainment by Jeff Grainger.
The 7th Annual Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon’s Honorary Chair was Swanee DiMare; Co-Chairs were Sonia Gibson, Linda Levy Goldberg, Barbara Hevia, Laura C. Munilla and Lydia Touzet; and Committee Members were Eilah Campbell-Beavers, Lesli Brown, Ana Hernandez, Daysi Johansson, Carol Iacovelli, Marile Lopez, Christy Martin, Bronwyn Miller and Suzy Buckely Woodward. “It’s a great group of women I love them all,” shared Christy Martin.
