ML Scene The 23rd Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida and InterContinental® Miami celebrated the 23rd Annual InterContinental® Miami Make-A-Wish® Ball on Saturday, November 4, 2017, hosting more than 900 guests at a modern cultured-themed gala. The Ball theme -- "Mystical Music Box" – was inspired by enchantment, fantasy and art – and of course, music. Presented by the Makarov Foundation and the Finker- Frenkel Legacy Foundation, actress and filmmaker Gabrielle Anwar, from ABC's Once Upon a Time, returned as celebrity emcee for the seventh consecutive year, helping the event to raise in excess of $2.3 million for Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida. Welcoming guests were the Ball's "Three Amigos" – Shareef Malnik, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida, Gala Chair of the InterContinental® Miami Make-A-Wish® Ball, and proprietor of The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar; Robert Hill; Gala Host and General Manager of InterContinental® Miami; and Norman Wedderburn, President and CEO of Make- A-Wish® Southern Florida. Lenny Kravitz gave guests an unforgettable 45-minute concert, which included his chart-topping hits "American Woman, "Are You Gonna Go Your Own Way" and "It Ain't Over 'Til it's Over," at one point jumping on top of a table and singing in true rock star fashion. Alisan Porter, winner of The Voice 2016, returned for the second year as opening act, her renditions of "Desperado" and "Cry Bay." The legendary Ball continued into the night at the 10th Annual InterContinental® Miami Make-A-Wish® Nightclub, presented by E11EVEN MIAMI. Chaired by Shareef Malnik; Vice-chaired by Ken DeGori and co-produced by Creative Director Maxwell Blandford and Clif Loftin, with creative direction by DECO Productions, the Nightclub was held at InterContinental® Miami and featured none other than hip-hop producer and artist Snoop Dogg.
