As the heat of Miami’s summer rolls in, the festal pomp of the Miami charity gala season comes to its conclusion. The sumptuous social affairs become photos in an album to be remembered. Be it black-ties or Indian garb, balls, fashion shows or performances, these charity events in Miami were grand and the money raised was significant. So, a toast to last season's galas and the organizations they support.
