Engage Miami, in partnership with the Xavier Cortada Foundation and Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen Trial Lawyers, is thrilled to announce its upcoming “Face the Future” Cocktail Fundraiser, an evening of inspiration, community, and action. Proceeds from the event will support Engage Miami’s mission of promoting civic engagement and leadership among young people.
The Cortada Foundation will feature a unique participatory art activation of “The Underwater” project led by renowned local artist Xavier Cortada. “At a time when rapid growth and displacement are defining Miami, we need to find ways of connecting with one another and working together to build a sense of community that ensures nobody is left behind,” said Cortada. “It’s in this context that we’re excited to support Engage Miami’s efforts and help create a collaborative space for meaningful change.” Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with Cortada's artistic vision, find their home’s elevation, and join a countywide initiative that sparks action around sea level rise.
A silent auction will also be a prominent feature of the event, offering a curated selection of items that reflect the spirit of Engage Miami's mission. Attendees will have the chance to bid on exceptional offerings, with proceeds directly supporting Engage Miami's youth-focused initiatives.
The keynote address will be delivered by Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, a local champion for community engagement and policy solutions for young people. Following the keynote, Engage plans to unveil its “Face the Future” initiative, a media campaign which highlights the transformative impact of the organization’s youth civic engagement work.
Engage Miami is honored to host an impressive lineup of local community leaders as event participants. Among the distinguished guests are Senator Shevrin Jones, State Representative Ashley Gantt, former Representative Nicholas Duran, former Pinecrest Mayor Cindy Lerner, former Senator Annette Taddeo, Juan Cuba, A.J. D'Amico, Aimee Ferrer, Matt Haber, Rodney Jacobs, Janelle Perez, and Justin Pinn. Their presence underscores the collective commitment to fostering positive change within the community.
A spokesperson for Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen said: "We are proud to support Engage Miami in their mission to empower young voters and promote civic participation. Engage’s work to amplify the political power of young people in South Florida is very much aligned with our commitment to justice and giving voices to the voiceless. We believe that when young people become civically engaged and get involved in their communities, we all win."
The Engage Miami fundraiser is an occasion for unity, inspiration, and advocacy. The event will take place on Thursday, September 28th at the Hibiscus Gallery at Pinecrest Gardens. For more information and to reserve your spot, please visit: http://bit.ly/engage-hibiscus.
