Charity with a flair for fashion

Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon Committee, 2017

On March 13, a kaleidoscope of color will fill Vizcaya Museum and Gardens as some of Miami's most charitable and fashion-forward ladies don the latest spring designs for the 10th Annual Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon. Known informally as the "Hat Luncheon," this iconic affair attracts 300 guests from Miami, Palm Beach and New York for an elegant lunch and fundraiser dedicated to safeguarding this National Historic Landmark and cultural hub for future generations.

Presented by Nordstrom, the luncheon earns its notable nickname due to the guests' fashionable hats, ranging from the classic to the avant garde. This element adds a touch of flair and whimsy to the fundraiser, which addresses the important issue of historic preservation - a poignant matter following the conclusion of Vizcaya's centennial year. With post-Irma recovery and the Vizcaya Village restoration project well underway, there is much to be accomplished at Vizcaya in 2018 and years to come. The strategic plan for a unified Vizcaya aims for the Village to realize its full potential as a community resource through innovative programming for locals and visitors as well as by relating the full history of the estate.

The 10th Annual Vizcaya Preservation Luncheon's Co-Chairs are Eilah Campbell-Beavers, Swanee DiMare and Christy Martin. The committee includes: Lesli Ann Brown, Suzy Buckley, Sonia Gibson, Linda Levy Goldberg, Ana Hernandez, Barbara Hevia, Carol Iacovelli, Marile Lopez, Nicole Lozano, Bronwyn Miller and Alexa Wolman.

Tickets can be purchased online. Friends of Vizcaya tickets are $450 and James Deering tickets are $600. Tables of 10 guests are available starting at $4,500 for a Friends of Vizcaya Table. James Deering Tables are $6,000 and includes premier seating, 2 bottle champagne service and complimentary entry to Après Fête following the luncheon.
