The event will be emceed by CBS4’s very own Lisa Petrillo and Y-100 Miami’s on air personality Nick Pena. The benefit will also feature a silent auction with exclusive packages and a Citi lounge area for guests to relax and savor specialty cocktails. New to this year’s festivities will be the first ever Taste of the Nation Speakeasy featuring six of the hottest mixologists in South Florida paired with a select spirit, serving a specialty cocktail of their creation.
The party will continue just down the street at R House where Chef/Owner Rocco Carulli will team up with additional restaurants to treat guests to tasty bites and pours late into the night. Additional news about the after party will be announced at a later date.
