The Miami HEAT and Hublot at The Betsy - South Beach

People gathered for Heat gala event

MIAMI, March 16 – On Saturday, March 14th, the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund raised over $1,100,000 at its benefit “Black Tie on Ocean Drive” presented by HUBLOT. This year’s gala was hosted at The Betsy-South Beach and featured a performance by seven-time Grammy award winner, Toni Braxton. HEAT Managing General Partner Micky Arison, his wife Madeleine, HEAT President Pat Riley, his wife Chris, the 2014-15 Miami HEAT team and Head Coach Erik Spoelstra were in attendance. The gala’s cocktail hour was hosted on world-renowned Ocean Drive, which was closed to vehicular traffic. This was the first time the event was hosted in a semi-public venue, which gave HEAT fans the opportunity to see their favorite Miami HEAT players arrive via a red carpet entrance in front of the Betsy. Over 175 guests attended the ultra-exclusive event sporting their elegant Black Tie attire. (www.nba.com/heat)
