Filming of the Real Housewives of Miami has begun… and this past weekend, film crews were at the Gay Winter Beach Party. The following photos are courtesy of SH reader “DVasq”… thank you, “DVasq!” SH readers are the best!!!
The Real Housewives of Miami are back for season two… Lea Black and her annual “Blacks Annual Gala” will be back, too!
Lea’s Gala is a huge deal in Miami and is always sold out. If you’re thinking about attending, you need to get your tickets NOW (here)! The Gala is less than three weeks away…
THIS is how a REAL charity/foundation is run!
Lea Black developed the concept for The Blacks’ Annual Gala and The Consequences Charity 15 years ago, dedicating herself to working tirelessly to raise awareness, support and financial resources for children in need. Believing that education was a more suitable alternative than jail for at-risk youth headed in that direction, Lea set out to make a difference and became a “fundraising phenomena” vowing to keep kids out of jail, get them educated and keep them safe.She is revered for her ability to inspire and motivate people to help these kids, the organizations that support them and challenges all of her donors, staff and volunteers to make an impact in their community, beginning one child at a time. Lea believes that one action equals a consequence and that can change a life.Lea is a passionate, outspoken entrepreneur, CEO and television personality whose talents are vast and drive, unlimited. In addition to developing one of Miami’s top annual charity events, “The Blacks Annual Gala” to benefit at-risk youth, Lea balances the roles of CEO for her private enterprise firm, wife to internationally acclaimed attorney Roy Black, cast member of The Real Housewives of Miami on Bravo Network and mom to her son, RJ, while serving as spokesperson for her charity and foundation.
The event will kick off with celebrity red carpet arrivals, a cocktail reception with auction items and luxury couture shopping to benefit charity, followed by a four course gourmet fine dining experience while watching extraordinary performances by Grammy winning / platinum selling artists.The 18th annual charity gala presented by Roy and Lea Black for the benefit of The Consequences Charity, Foundation and a host of other not for profit concerns, will take place at Fontainebleau Miami Beach on March 24th, 2012.DETAILS… HERE.
