2nd Annual Flamingo Ball
Benefits HistoryMiami Museum's Educational Programming
Saturday, March 3, 2018, from 7 to 11 p.m.
Hialeah Park's Citation Room
2200 East 4th Avenue, Hialeah
HistoryMiami Museum, the largest history museum in Florida and a Smithsonian Affiliate, will transform Hialeah Park into a tropical oasis, with its second annual Flamingo Ball, presented by Hialeah Park, on Saturday, March 3, 2018. The theme for this years gala is "Tropical Nights."
The Flamingo Ball, named after the beautiful birds that inhabit Hialeah Parks infield lake, was first held in 1965 on the eve of the Flamingo Stakes horse race at the racetrack. The lavish pink social confection returned last year to a sold out crowd of the city's most philanthropic supporters.
This year's tropical affair will benefit HistoryMiami Museum's education programming, treating more than 250 guests to a lavish buffet of lobster and stone crabs, champagne and signature cocktails, live performances, and a special awards ceremony emceed by Emmy Award-winning news anchor Cynthia Demos. Attire is black tie or tropical formal.
During the gala HistoryMiami Museum will honor two Miami businesses with the prestigious Flagler Award, a tribute named for Henry Flagler, a pioneer who had the vision and ambition to bring his railroad to Miami and develop a small town into the Magic City. Award recipients will be announced at a later date.
Individual tickets are $350. For more information on sponsorship packages and individual tickets, please contact Katie Repici at KRepici@HistoryMiami.org.
