Miami Beach’s beloved Bass museum is recreating the fashionable flair of its annual gala with a virtual version on March 21. Its “Bass Ball in a Box” treats attendees to a three-course gourmet dinner prepared by French chef Thierry Isambert, libations and surprise art experiences orchestrated by board president George Lindemann and director Silvia Karman Cubiñá. Proceeds support education and exhibition programs.
Furry friends have helped us get through the pandemic, and now it’s our turn to help them on March 6. Instead of meeting up in person, Broward’s Humane Society asks donors to stroll their own neighborhood for its 31st annual VCA Walk for the Animals. The Paws & Claws Gala for the Treasure Coast’s Humane Society continues in person with safe health protocol.
PBC Food Bank
One doesn’t need cold weather to crave soup. Local restaurants are preparing delicious, signature soups for the 8th annual Palm Beach Empty Bowls charity luncheon on February 26. The simple meal, which also includes Old School Bakery bread and drinks, benefits the Palm Beach County Food Bank. Since it’s virtual this year, order takeout or delivery from the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.
VBMA’s Art in Bloom
Live from London, royal family florist Shane Connolly shares tricks of the trade for the Vero Beach Museum of Art’s “Art in Bloom” benefit on March 10-11. The annual luncheon with a guest speaker and exhibition viewing and voting is so popular that it requires four seatings over two days. This year’s event is in person, but the lecture presentation will be streamed.
Lilly Pulitzer for Honda Classic Cares
It’s about that time of year again for one of Florida’s most important golf fundraisers. Honda Classic Cares benefits the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in support of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. If you can’t attend the tournament from March 15-21 at PGA National Resort, show your support by purchasing looks from Lilly Pulitzer’s “Print with Purpose” collection at select stores and online.
