Haute Event: Miami Spice Kickoff Event & Fundraiser, a Success

Miami’s premier Miami Spice Kickoff Event & Fundraiser, which will become an annual event, left guests satiated last weekend. The celebration, put together by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB), took place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, attracting 3,000 guests to kick off the 9th Annual Miami Spice Restaurant Program.

VIP attendees indulged in an exclusive reception beforehand, where hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were served, compliments of Moët Hennessy USA and Stella Artois.

When the main event was served, Michelle Bernstein popped things off with a little bubbly.

All guests were offered an array of cuisine options from more than 35 of Miami Spice’s participating restaurants. Guests also enjoyed celebrity chef book signings, culinary demos, and a raffle drawing, which was emceed by GMCVB chairman Steve Haas.

The fund-raiser helped benefit Share Our Strength and Madison’s Wish.
