Tasting for Charity in Miami Garden

There’s nothing like food and wine—and a good cause—to bring people together and that’s exactly what the II Annual Taste in the Gardens did on Thursday, May 17th, in the City of Miami Gardens.

More than 300 people joined in the fun and festivities in the Mercedes-Benz of Miami Showroom, 1200 NW 167th Street, Miami Gardens, for the chance to savor the tasty bites from more than 25 food and liquor vendors located in and around the city limits. There were mouthwatering delectables from local caterers and restaurants that specialized in Jamaican, Creole, Americana, Italian, Cuban, Spanish, Organic and Natural, Desserts and of course, down-home Soul Food.

Not only were you able to sample the fine food and drinks, but there was also a personal cigar-roller on hand, as well as beautiful ladies in Carnival outfits and a special musical performance by South Florida’s very own, Nicole Henry. Meanwhile, The Brass King provided the musical vibes for the evening.

Sponsors for the event were Mercedes-Benz of Miami, DRUMMERBOYSOUND, Inc., BAREFOOT Wine and Bubbly, admardecor Event Design and Planning Group, Anthony Jackson and the maromeagency, Legacy Magazine, The Brass King, Chambord Flavored Vodka, Major Minerz and WEDR 99 Jamz. Proceeds benefited the Kiwanis of Miami Gardens Scholarship Fund and the highlight of the evening was when they presented three scholarships worth $1500 each to three Miami Gardens students to help with their college expenses.
