Fisher Island Day School Hosts 2011 Annual Benefit Gala

On Feb. 12, 2011 Fisher Island Day School will host its Annual Benefit Gala at the magnificent Palazzo del Mare on Fisher Island. Haute Living is a proud sponsor along with Grey Goose Vodka, Braman Motors, Pantry Liquors, Apollo Jets, and Neiman Marcus Coral Gables. Fisher Island Day School is an independent co-educational day school that places an emphasis on positive approaches for children, celebrating the joy of learning, building self-esteem, preparing children for future schooling, responsible citizenship in an ethically and religiously diverse world, and ongoing learning to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. The tax-deductible donations raised at the gala will benefit the FIDS Annual Fund. This fund goes to extend reduced tuition scholarships for children in the community who are less privileged and otherwise would not be able to attend the school.

With the Red Carpet rolling out at 6:30 p.m., guests will begin the evening with hors d’oeuvres while sipping cocktails courtesy of Grey Goose Vodka before dinner. The event will include a performance by comedienne Heather McDonald, the evening’s MC and a regular guest star on the E! Television hit Chelsea Lately. To benefit this great cause, guests can take their turn in the casino and bid in a silent auction or, for those a bit bolder, a live auction of a 2011 Bentley Mulsanne with the buyer’s premium to benefit the school. Guests will also marvel at acrobatic performances, take in a fashion show featuring KaufmanFranco and the “best of” several top designers, and dance the night away.

Tickets for the event will be available at Fisher Island Day School for $350 per seat or $5,000 for a VIP table for ten guests. Limited seating is available. Tickets can also be obtained by contacting Sheila Hosseini at FIDS at 305.531.2350 or
