Gala season is in full swing and local Miami philanthropists are joining together with South Florida’s elite on Wednesday, November 14th to celebrate the 17th annual “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Miami Gala 2012 hosted by Stephanie, Jules and Eddie Trump of Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach and the Mansions at Acqualina. The Foundation invites guests to support the cause and meet the Dreamers as they continue to invest in the future of the community, turning despair into dreams and converting obstacles into opportunities. The gala begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by dinner and a live auction featuring exciting items and luxurious getaways around the world. Guests will enjoy evening entertainment provided by acclaimed jazz artist, Nicole Henry.
The Miami chapter of the “I Have a Dream” Foundation was founded in 1995 by the Trump Family, adopting 97 Dreamers at the Charles R. Drew School in Liberty City. The chapter’s class of 2005 far exceeded expectations with 95 out of 97 Dreamers reaching 12th grade and 83 of these Dreamers graduating. 72 of these Dreamers are now in college, or have already graduated. In August of 2007, the Miami chapter started a new class of Dreamers at Hibiscus Elementary School – the class of 2020. All funds raised during the memorable evening will be used to support I Have a Dream Foundation of Miami’s work in the local community for the class of 2020. In 2011, the annual “I Have a Dream” Celebration raised $500,000 for children’s programming in Miami.
