AFH MIAMI 2nd Annual Fundraiser:
Sponsored by 42Below Vodka
Architecture and design in Miami is often associated with luxury, glamour, and glitz , yet for the past two years, a movement to bring sustainable design to the â€œnot so glitzyâ€ areas of the community has emerged through the active volunteerism of Architecture for Humanity – Miami Chapterâ€™s 700+ network of architects and designers. On Friday, November 19, 7-11pm at downtown Miamiâ€™s Loft 168, Architecture for Humanity Miami (AFH Miami) will be celebrating the progress of this movement by hosting an extended happy hour sponsored by 42Below Vodka. The event is themed â€œRetrosp[ACTIVE] 2.0â€ : a celebration in retrospect of AFH Miamiâ€™s engagement with less-advantaged communities locally and beyond through the power of sustainable design.
Guests will have a great start to the weekend at this event, complete with the invoking live sounds of guest DJs Sela Vee and Aramis, a 42Below Vodka OPEN BAR, plus Grolsch beer along with tantalizing appetizers conceptualized by Raaga Cart. All this and more will take place at Loft 168 (above ECCO Pizzateca & Lounge), located in the heart of downtown Miami at 168 SE 1st street.
Entrance to â€œRetrosp[ACTIVE] 2.0 â€ includes drinks and food and only $20 with RSVP at AFH Miamiâ€™s Retrosp[ACTIVE] event website by November 18th or $25 at the door . All proceeds will benefit Architecture for Humanity Miamiâ€™s projects, both located in Miami and Haiti.
Architecture for Humanity and our Miami Chapter
Founded by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr in 1999, Architecture for Humanity (AfH) is a 501(c)(3) charitable international organization that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and brings professional design services to communities in need.
By establishing the Miami Chapter of Architecture for Humanity, our partners, who work with under-served communities, are empowered to build a more sustainable future for our Greater Miami. For AfH, sustainability is about more than building â€œgreenâ€. We think about how a building will affect the environment, how it will improve the lives and livelihoods of its occupants and those residing in close proximity, and its impact on future generations, including its vulnerability to disaster.
