About The Event

Join Friendship Circle and over 250 of Miami’s top philanthropists, business leaders, elected officials, and media representatives for our premier fundraising event on Thursday, November 4th at Fairchild Tropical Gardens for an enchanted evening under the stars. 

We invite you to attend, sponsor, and be recognized as we transform Fairchild Tropical Gardens for an evening to remember, to help change lives and build a better, inclusive community. 

The open-air affair will include cocktails, gourmet catering, live music and entertainment, as well as a silent auction. Proceeds will fund multiple endeavors for Friendship Circle including programming for individuals with special needs, support for parents and caregivers, and our future state-of-the-art campus, which we plan to break ground on this Fall!


In consideration of our special needs families, we respectfully request you attend vaccinated or with a negative PCR test.  We will be following prevailing COVID-19 health and safety guidelines on the evening.
