Dear Miami SKAL members,

The fall season just started! October and November events will be held every two weeks, but we would like to start our request for donations for our Holiday Fundraiser Auction and Raffle Party, which will be on Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at the beautiful Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Information will be send out by the end of October.

We are very thankful for the donation we received at the Smith & Wollensky event in September. It really helps to fund some great initiatives like Young SKAL Professional Mentoring, Membership Support and Retention, as well as supporting other causes like the Florimond Volckaert fund and helping our club to be able to participate in Regional, National and International SKAL Meetings and Conferences.

We are asking if you can help us gather auction items for the Christmas event. Skal Miami is collaborating with Skal Tampa Bay for Christmas event donations, and we would like to exchange some of your item with them and vice versa. The Skal Tampa Bay Christmas event will take place on Monday, December 20, 2021, at the Belleair Country Club. Join them if you plan to be in the area. They will open the event for registration in November.

Thank you already in advance – and contact me for any information I can give to you.


Karin Andersen, Skal Miami President.

PS: We’d like to introduce to you our new member Jennifer Tacey of the beautiful Isla Bella Beach Resort in the Florida Keys. If you would like to be promoted through our chapter, please email your information to [email protected].
