support the preservation and protection of vizcaya

Each year approximately 350 guests from South Florida’s philanthropic society attend the Preservation Luncheon, also known as the hat luncheon, as attendees are encouraged to wear stylish hats. The luncheon raises funds to preserve and protect Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for the community.

The Preservation Luncheon begins with a late morning cocktail reception in the magnificent Vizcaya Gardens and continues with an elegant seated luncheon. This annual event is an enjoyable way to contribute to the conservation of this historic property for future generations.
