“As we near our centennial anniversary, our commitment to understanding and addressing the needs of our community remains unwavering. Events like VeritageMiami not only exemplify our dedication but also propel us forward in fulfilling our mission and supporting innovative initiatives,” remarked Symeria Hudson, President and CEO of United Way Miami. “We are excited to welcome back our dynamic chairs, Patricia and José Mas, and extend appreciation to our presenting sponsor, City National Bank.”

VeritageMiami 2024 kicks off with the Wine and Food Experience on March 6 at The Hangar at Regatta Harbour in Coconut Grove, where guests will embark on a delightful journey for the palate, with wineries from every corner of the globe sharing their finest bottles and local eateries offer up their favorite bites. *Individual Tickets: $150.00 | VIP: $225.00

The Interactive Dinner will take place on April 19 at the InterContinental Miami Hotel in downtown Miami, featuring celebrity chef Jeremy Ford, Bravo “Top Chef” Season 13 winner and James Beard Award nominee, whose work is already familiar to South Florida food lovers through his Michelin-starred restaurant Stubborn Seed. He will conduct a live, in-person master class as guests cook alongside him and then enjoy a three-course gourmet dinner.
