The Little Lighthouse Foundation held its 8th Annual Hearts and Stars weekend complete with three exclusive events. The weekend-long affair worked to support the local foundation, which gives back to the community by raising funds to create programs benefiting youth with educational, financial, & medical hardships across Miami-Dade County.

The glamorous Hearts and Stars Gala capped off the weekend with a lavish affair at the stunning Star Island manse of Lisa and Lenny Hochstein. More than 800 guests were transported to a Mystic Dreams-themed event where Miami’s elite stunned in their best ensembles and danced the night away under the stars, enjoying open bars and cuisine from Miami’s top restaurants. The total affair raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that will directly benefit the underserved children in South Florida.
