One of Miami’s most highly-anticipated events, Amigos Night (formerly Miami Celebrity Domino Night) will take place on Saturday, September 30, at the Hangar in Coconut Grove.

The night promises to be filled with dancing, dining and dominoes  thanks to the support of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, title sponsor, and Bacardi USA, presenting sponsor. The best part? All of this fun benefits Amigos For Kids, whose mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Amigos Night will feature a culinary pavilion offering dinner by the bite from some of Miami’s favorite chefs. Miami HEAT DJ Irie and live entertainment by Extasy will keep the dance floor packed the whole night. Cocktails will be free flowing and the domino tables will be bustling. Be sure to take a break from the fun to bid on items from the silent auction, which will include art, sports memorabilia, jewelry, travel expeditions, and more.

To purchase

Liquid Facelift’s key ingredient include:

1. Leuphasyl – A pentapeptide is an anti wrinkle peptide acting on expression of wrinkles and can attenuate muscle contraction which reduces fine lines. This makes Leuphasyl a fantastic more natural alternative to injectables. 

2. Argireline – a dynamic peptide that restricts muscle movement in order to prevent wrinkles locally in the area applied. 

3. BPC 157 – this is the ultimate healing peptide which reduces inflammation, promotes blood flow, heals damaged skin, regenerates new collagen fibers. 

4. GHk copper peptide – Accelerates wound healing and skin repair. GHK copper stimulates the synthesis of collagen so new skin fibers form to replace older fibers
