Miami, Floridaâ€¦ Enjoy a moonlit evening of music, dancing, talent, food & drink, and honoring some amazing people, on the evening of Friday, September 16th, 2016 for our annual LEGENDS Ball in one of Miamiâ€™s oldest and grandest homes, Warner Place. This impressive Neo-Classical building was designed for J.W. Warner, founder of South Florida’s first floral company. The home’s fine craftsmanship is especially evident in its massive columns, Palladian window and porte-cochÃ¨re. The house was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 and has been restored to its original splendor by the Miami Hispanic Cultural Arts Center, under the direction of Pedro Pablo PeÃ±a, and home to Creation Ballet, opera, dance & various cultural institutions.
Since 2010, our Unity Coalition|CoaliciÃ³n Unida (UC|CU) LEGENDS Ball and Leaders, Legends & Lovelies Honors Awards has celebrated the good, positive & outstanding within our LGBTQ & ally community. Through the annual recognition we bring the community together to focus on the similarities rather than the differences we all share, and how we can inspire others to do good, excel, be proud of who they are & just be better people. This year we are proud to Honor Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen for Outstanding Political & Social Leadership, Jowharah Sanders for her work with Youth & Womenâ€™s Empowerment, Hernan Valverde for his Relentless Leadership & Conviction to the community.
