Michael's and Make-A-Wish Southern Fla Team Up!

On February 23rd, Michael's On East and Make-A-Wish Southern Florida teamed up for an extraordinary night of fundraising. Set in the theme of Alice in Wonderland, over 400 guests filled the Circus Arts Conservatory for a night of cooking, giving, and playing a part in a magical night complete with costumes and crowd participation. Led by Michael's On East Executive Chef Jamil Pineda, event guests, over 100 at a time, cooked a Wonderland-themed three course meal which included Looking Glass Shellfish Cioppino, Wonderland Garden Vegetable Stir-Fry, and Steak Alice. 

In all, more than $650k, including over $200k at the live auction, was raised to fulfill the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

Michael's On East played a vital role in the night's event with Michael Klauber serving as the event's auctioneer, Phil Mancini catered the event, Jamil Pineda led the guests on an exciting cooking expedition, and a huge shoutout to Terri Klauber, the incredible Co-Chair, who went above and beyond to make this event a success!
