The highly-anticipated Amigos Night took place  on Saturday, September 30, at the Hangar in Coconut Grove.

The music and entertainment were extraordinary as were the food and cocktails. The crowd of more than 1000 guests was still dancing non-stop well passed 1 am to the incomparable music of the legendary DJ Irie.

Thanks to the support of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, title sponsor, and Bacardi USA, presenting sponsor and all of the sponsors, guests and volunteers, the evening raised over 400 thousand dollars to benefit Amigos For Kids, whose mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Amigos Night featured a culinary pavilion offering dinner by the bite from some of Miami’s favorite restaurants, live music and entertainment by Extasy and an insane “hora loca” late night. The dance floor was packed the whole night. Cocktails were free-flowing, domino tables were bustling and Versailles and Papa John’s doled out delicious treats well into the morning. 

Special guests included:  Alina Garcia, Vicki Lopez, and Raquel Regalado, Gloria Ordaz, Pamela Silva, Enrique Santos, Erika Ender, Jorge Masvidal, Ingrid Hoffman, Maria Elena Salinas, Teresa Rodriguez, Neida Sandoval, Anabelle Blum and Ana Quincoces tonnage a few.

Maggie Fresen, Board Chair, expressed her gratitude, stating, “On behalf of the Board of Directors and the thousands of children we are able to reach every year, we thank our sponsors and supporters who are vital to continuing Amigos’ mission. With their support, we cultivate unity and compassion, ensuring that children have the opportunity to grow, succeed, and build a brighter future.”
