As part of the resort’s BleauLive performance series, music icon Dionne Warwick will be performing at the legendary Fontainebleau hotel to benefit the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund. The impact of Hurricane Sandy on Warwick’s home state of New Jersey, paired with the resort’s personal understanding of these types of natural disasters, transformed this scheduled performance into a recovery effort following last week’s devastation. In addition to a seated cabaret-style concert by Warwick and surprise guests, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of live auction experiences to further benefit the families and individuals impacted by Hurricane Sandy, including dinner for 20 by Fontainebleau’s Scott Conant, signature chef of Scarpetta. This event marks the first BleauLive performance benefiting a charitable cause. “With our Miami roots, Fontainebleau Miami Beach recognizes the impact hurricanes have on local communities. In partnership with the Soffer Family and Dionne Warwick, we will support the United Way in their recovery efforts to assist the families in the areas devastated by the storm,” noted Philip Goldfarb, President and COO, Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
