7th Annual Driven to Dine
Benefitting Florida Heart Research Institute
Chairs: Remedios Diaz-Oliver and Bunny Bastian

The 7th Annual Driven to Dine benefitting Florida Heart Research Institute, chaired by Bunny Bastian and Remedios Diaz-Oliver, began at the lovely waterfront Indian Creek home of Coach Don and Mary Anne Shula. Guests were treated to hors d’oeuvres created by LeCordon Bleu. A live auction got the guests’ attention and ready to draw for their surprise restaurant and then they were whisked away by limousine. We thank our restaurant sponsors and their chefs, Whole Foods, LeCordon Bleu, Miami Magazine, Cao chocolates, Giangrandi Gourmet, Havana Tea Company and Casa Dragones.
