The Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) will honor four pillars of the community while celebrating its 92nd Annual Dinner Gala and Silent Auction hosted by media personality Ana Quincoces and Chamber Chairman and SVP of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust Michael S. Goldberg. Over a 1,000 attendees are expected to gather on Saturday, May 10, at the glamorous Fontainebleau Miami Beach for the event that will showcase the city’s contribution to film production throughout the years. Party goers will enjoy an entertaining evening of surprises along with an auction, dinner, dancing, and much more.
“This year’s award recipients depict the strengths of Miami Beach in their own unique way,” said Goldberg. “From running an internationally recognized educational institution, to pioneering Ocean Drive, to showing leadership and passion through a long career of City and County leadership and to being a leader with civic organizations which contribute in elevating those in need at the same time running one of the premiere private banking and wealth management companies – these honorees are true pillars of the community.”
The honorees include: Dr. Mark Rosenberg, President of Florida International University, as the Lifetime Achievement honoree; David Wallack, Owner of Mango’s Tropical Café, as the Excellence in Tourism honoree; Jimmy Morales, City Manager of the City of Miami Beach, as the City National Bank Hi-Tides Outstanding Achievement Honoree; and Adolfo Henriques, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust, as the Distinguished Service honoree.
City National Bank Hi-Tides Outstanding Achievement Honoree Jimmy Morales has nearly 20 years of experience in government serving as a local attorney, administrator and public servant. His significant roles in government administration and elected office have earned him a reputation as an advocate for citizens and ethics. Now, the accomplished attorney is committed to bringing his passion for executive leadership and serving others to his hometown as the city manager for Miami Beach. Born and raised in Miami Beach, Morales graduated as salutatorian from Miami Beach Senior High School. In 1984, he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and was inducted as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1987.
