Can you feel it, that push of acceleration, as if you’d just taken off from a green light in a Bentley Continental GT? That’s Miami launching into another season. A great way to mark that green light every November is the annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball, on November 3. After 17 years, this really has become the “can’t-miss” event of South Florida, but more importantly, it has helped raise enough money to grant wishes to 2,300 children with life-threatening illnesses. Next we have Destination Fashion at the Bal Harbour Shops, on November 10, benefiting The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. Last but certainly not least is the 16th annual Best Buddies Miami Gala, held November 16 at Marlins Park. Proceeds will go toward supporting amazing people like our Best Buddies employee, Pelayo Vigil. This cause is near and dear to our hearts at Ocean Drive, as next month we celebrate Pelayo’s 10-year anniversary with us.
And save your appetite: We have our annual Hot Chefs event on November 20! Several of Miami’s most innovative chefs will gather at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel for this unforgettable feast, presented by Infiniti. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay in the loop.
We’re also lucky enough to have Chelsea Tyler, the newest face of IMG Models and Alice + Olivia, gracing our cover this month. Not only is she the girl on everyone’s lips, but, as the youngest daughter of rock star Steven Tyler, she’s proving the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Currently she’s in the middle of recording her first album with her band, badbad. I’m betting it’ll be a refreshing addition to any Spotify playlist. I look forward to seeing you around town….
