Flamingo Ball 2018

Flamingo Ball 2018Saturday, March 3, 7:30pm-11pm – Hialeah Park’s Citation Room, 2200 East 4th Avenue, Hialeah

HistoryMiami Museum will transform Hialeah Park into a tropical oasis,  with its second annual Flamingo Ball on Saturday, March 3 , 2018.  The theme for this year’s gala is ‘Tropical Nights.’ The Flamingo Ball, named after the beautiful birds that inhabit Hialeah Park’s infield lake, was first held in 1965 on the eve of the Flamingo Stakes horse race at the racetrack. The lavish pink social confection returned last year to a sold out crowd of the city’s most philanthropic supporters. This year’s tropical affair will benefit HistoryMiami Museum and treat more than 250 guests to lavish buffet of lobster and stone crabs, champagne and signature cocktails, live performances, and a special awards ceremony emceed by Emmy Award winning news anchor, Cynthia Demos. HistoryMiami Museum will honor HEICO Corporation and the Mendelson Family (Laurens, Arlene, Eric, Kimberly, Victor, and Lisa) with the prestigious Flagler Award. The award is a tribute to Henry Flagler, a pioneer who had the vision and ambition to bring his railroad to Miami and develop a small town into the Magic City.Tickets are $350 per person, and proceeds from the gala benefit educational programming at HistoryMiami Museum. @HistoryMiami
