Miami’s (mostly) female philanthropic set came out for the second annual Rosé Day™ Luncheon for the Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program at Soho Beach House. The event’s co-chairs Suzy Buckley Woodward, Carol Iacovelli, Daniela Swaebe, Marisa Toccin Lucas and Jennifer Valoppi as well as the Miami-Dade Leadership Council, welcomed over 150 of some of South Florida’s leading philanthropists to a sold-out event which raised more than $100,000 benefiting at-risk girls in South Florida public high schools.
The ladies luncheon was presented by wine sponsor Château d’Esclans and Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour, which created a pop-up shop to peruse during cocktail hour, while enjoying Chateau d’Esclans rose and frosé, a frozen version of the popular wine.
Guests bid high on the silent auction which included items from Tommy Hilfiger, Carolyn Rowan Accessories, Fisher Island Club, Daniela Swaebe Fine Jewelry, KAUFMANFRANCO and others. Additionally, an exciting raffle headlined by the highly coveted Alice & Olivia New York Fashion Week Package with a one night stay at the Regency in NY, was the talk of the afternoon. Other raffle prizes included items from Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour, Ema Savahl, Pilates on the Beach, JetSet Miami, Château d’Esclans and others. The always fabulous mystery swag bags were filled with items from luxury brands such as Dr. Diane Alvarez, Jason of Beverly Hills, Junior & Hatter Spa, ELEMIS Spa, Pitusa and Colors in Optics/Stylists to a T to name a few.
