In addition to an amazing experience for Miami Gardens residents and guests, the Wine & Food Experience serves to promote philanthropy and bring cause-awareness to local nonprofit organizations. This year’s charities of choice are The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Association and the JDRF. Each organization is a 501c3 dedicated to improving the world through their respective missions, Councilwoman Lisa Davis is happy to welcome these organizations
