UPDATE October 5, 2016: With Miami-Dade under a tropical storm watch and back in the “cone of concern,” our VeritageMiami leadership has decided to postpone ALL VeritageMiami events, including the Interactive Dinner on Fridayand Auction & Bubbly Brunch on Sunday, to the spring. We feel that this is the best course of action, again, out of an abundance of caution and due to the uncertainty of Hurricane Matthew. We will be in touch soon with new dates for VeritageMiami in the spring of 2017. All tickets and sponsorship benefits will be honored then. In addition, United Way is Miami-Dade County’s Office of Emergency Management’s official volunteer and donations arm following a disaster, and we need to turn our attention towards those efforts.
VeritageMiami, presented by City National Bank, is happening this week.
VeritageMiami will take place October 5, 6, 7 and 9.
