The District - Vibe

Fifty guests were invited to experience a one-of-a-kind dining collaboration with The District Miami’s Executive Chef and James Beard Foundation semifinalist Horacio Rivadero and acclaimed ceramicist Carlos Alberto Rodriguez. The $200 per person dinner was served on 50 unique plates created especially for Copperbridge Foundation by ceramicist Carlos Alberto Rodriguez. The art plates were chosen beforehand by participating guests and taken home after the dinner. Optional $100 dinners were also purchased without the art plates. A portion of the tax deductible proceeds went towards the Copperbridge Foundation programs.
