Flavors of Miami 2016Thursday, September 8, 5:30pm-9:30pm – Loews Miami Beach Hotel, 1601 Collins Ave, Miami Beach

The American Liver Foundation’s second annual Flavors of Miami is a culinary experience that goes beyond the traditional gala, providing guests with the unique experience of having a top local chef prepare a multi-course dinner table-side. Guests unleashed their inner “foodie” and experience a distinct evening of dining while helping fund the research, education and advocacy efforts of the American Liver Foundation. The 2016 Flavors of Miami Presenting Sponsor is Miami Transplant Institute, a unique affiliation between Jackson Health System and UHealth – University of Miami Health System. The National Silver Sponsor is Gilead Sciences; the National Bronze Sponsor is AbbVie Pharmaceuticals; among other local sponsors.

Flavors was first stirred together in 1991, by James Beard Award winning chef Christopher Gross in Phoenix. Chef Gross and other area chefs were interested in supporting the mission of the American Liver Foundation. Today the event is hosted by the organization in more than 20 cities across the country and raises millions of dollars annually to support the work of The American Liver Foundation.
