Vizcaya sparkled at its 59th Annual Ball, which took place on Saturday, November 21. Guests walked down the 200-foot red carpet to the black-tie event, themed “A Return to the Gilded Age and All that Glitters.” The evening’s festivities included a stylish cocktail reception with a seafood bar and music by the Florida Youth Orchestra; catering by Thierry Catering; entertainment by The Steve Chase Band; and a sensational on-line silent auction.

Guests danced into the night and watched fireworks along Biscayne Bay. Among the guests were Susan and Anthony Abraham, Jr., Pearl Baker-Katz, Trish and Dan Bell, Terry Buoniconti, Laurie Evans, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens Trust Chairman Ray MaGhee, Aislyn and Scott McDonald, M.D., Bronwyn Miller, Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Jean Monestime, Laura and Juan Munilla, Chris Pederson, Migna Sanchez-Llorens, Diane Sepler, among others.

The 59th Annual Vizcaya Ball Committee is Lesli Ann Brown, Sonia Gibson, Linda Levy Goldberg, Cathy L. Jones, Nicole Lozano, Christina Martin, William Meyersohn, James W. Murphy, Alexa Wolman, and Suzy Buckley Woodward, with Swanee DiMare serving as Honorary Chair. Proceeds support the protection and preservation of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
