Many community members, transplant recipients and philanthropists attended the soirée. Event MC was TV Personality Stella Vidal. Guests enjoyed DJ mixes provided by Housit Productions and live music by Havana Soul while they sipped on cocktails and delight in the tastings of an array of delectable hors d’oeuvre provided by some of South Florida’s well known restaurants such as: Toro Toro, Marky’s Caviar, Crab House, Lan Panasian, Paella by Pepe Luzzaraga Catering and a Martini Mash station provided by Inspired Events. VIP guests enjoyed this exclusive scene as they were catered to with private concierge bottle service on white lounge style couches.

With over 114,000 individuals awaiting a life saving transplant this event is sure to bring about much talk and awareness on the importance of organ donation. The Transplant Foundation assists over 500 families a year with transportation, medication, and housing. Proceeds from Emerald Nights will go to expand transplant patient services, education, and aid in funding transplant research.
