The Bacardi Evening in the Arts took place on Saturday, October 6, 2018,
at the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora.
The event, led by the Bacardi Women in Leadership initiative, served as the official kick-off celebration for the 25th Anniversary of Dress for Success Miami.
Guests were the first to preview the museum’s exhibit “Forever Celia” – an intimate and immersive look at the life of the legendary “Queen of Salsa,” before it opened to the public.
Additionally, attendees gathered on the museum's rooftop terrace for live music and to witness a mural painting come to life under the stars. VIP guests further indulged their senses in Bacardi’s private cognac, whisky and cigar lounge and attended an exclusive fashion show featuring a Rene by RR collection from famed Cuban fashion designer and Miami International University of Art & Design (then the International Fine Arts College) alumnus, Rene Ruiz.
