Press release from: American Liver Foundation

WHAT: The American Liver Foundation’s second annual Flavors of Miami is a culinary experience that goes beyond the traditional gala, providing guests with the unique experience of having a top local chef prepare a multi-course dinner tableside. This sold out event showcases the signature dishes of Miami’s culinary experts and takes guests beyond the usual restaurant fare. Unleash your inner “foodie” and experience a distinct evening of dining while helping fund the research, education and advocacy efforts of the American Liver Foundation. The 2016 Flavors of Miami Presenting Sponsor is Miami Transplant Institute, a unique affiliation between Jackson Health System and UHealth – University of Miami Health System. The National Silver Sponsor is Gilead Sciences; the National Bronze Sponsor is AbbVie Pharmaceuticals; among other local sponsors.

Flavors was first stirred together in 1991, by James Beard Award winning chef Christopher Gross in Phoenix. Chef Gross and other area chefs were interested in supporting the mission of the American Liver Foundation. Today the event is hosted by the organization in more than 20 cities across the country and raises millions of dollars annually to support the work of The American Liver Foundation. This will be the second Flavors of Miami event, and the American Liver Foundation hopes by continuing to host this popular event in the lively city of Miami, it will garner great support for an even greater cause.

Thomas Nealon III, American Liver Foundation CEO and National Board Chairman says, “I am extremely excited that ALF will, once again, host Flavors of Miami. Flavors is a concept that certainly is well suited for Miami. More importantly, Miami is definitely a place where the American Liver Foundation needs to establish a greater presence and role – and a place that I call home. We are very optimistic that Flavors of Miami will support ALF's efforts to establish a permanent presence in Miami, so that the organization can work with the many incredible physicians and medical professionals in the Miami area to serve liver patients and their families in South Florida.”
