“I Have a Dream” Foundation Miami Hosts 27th Annual Gala At The JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa

The 27th edition of the annual “I Have a Dream” Foundation Miami Gala was hosted by Stephanie, Jules, and Eddie Trump on November 3, 2022, at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa. 

The evening raised $1 million to benefit the “I Have a Dream” Foundation Miami Dreamers: the class of 2032 who is now in 3rd grade. The Trump family founded the Miami-Dade chapter of the Foundation in 1995.

After having the Gala online for two years, 580 South Florida philanthropists joined 40 Dreamers for a magical and uplifting evening, where live auctioneer Jay Rokeach awarded more than 40 exciting prizes, including a 9-night trip to Italy with stops in Florence, Rome, Sorrento, and Sicily and a 12-night South African Memorable Experience, including two private game parks.

Founder Stephanie Trump gave an inspiring welcome address where she gave special recognition to the “I Have a Dream” Foundation’s Executive Director, Jonas Severe, and Project Director, Nicole Taylor. “They are the glue that keeps our program together; without them, the program couldn’t succeed,” shared Trump.

Miami artist Cameron Wheeler performed during the cocktail hour, followed by Miami Dreamer Rendith Sanon, who is now enrolled in college. The emotional song ‘I’m Brave, I’m Strong, I’m Loved, I’m Smart, and I’m Unique’ was also performed by the class of 2032. Turnberry Resort’s culinary team prepared a four-course menu for all to enjoy.

All funds raised at the Gala benefitted the “I Have a Dream” Foundation Miami Dreamers, which gives children in low-income communities an opportunity to pursue higher education, capitalize on their talents, and fulfill their leadership potential by allowing them to get the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. The Foundation guarantees the thchildren’s’s academic tuition at a Florida state university for a four-year degree or at an accredited trade school after graduation.
