Mask your eyes and show your smile at Coral Gables Woman’s Club Gala on Saturday, February 9. Enjoy an evening wearing your finest and masking your eyes for a Mardi Gras themed night of incredible food, entertainment, dancing and a silent auction to help the club raise funds for the Coral Gables Children’s Dental Clinic. This free clinic, attached to their historic clubhouse at 1009 East Ponce de Leon Blvd., provides more than $220,000 in free dental care to disadvantaged children annually. Event chair Iris Segui and her silent auction chair, Mayra Dominguez, encourage retailers and businesses to help by donating items, buying a program ad or becoming sponsors. Individual tickets are only $100 which has to be the best deal in town for a Gala such as this.

For more information on how you can help, contact Iris at 305-972-5405.

Also coming up in February, is the South Miami Rotary’s Art Festival on the weekend of February 23 on Sunset Drive which is always a fun event with great art and entertainment and food. To round out the weekend, on Sunday, February 24, the Rotary Club of Coral Gables will hold its Annual Chili Cook Off at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park from 1 – 5 p.m. They will have cash prizes for best chilis, crowd favorite and best decorations. Chairing this event once again is Pinecrest resident RCCG Past President Greg Martini, ably assisted by a great committee including Bruce Kerestes who handles on the chef entries. Celebrity Chef Chris Valdes, of Food Network fame, will be among the panel judges this year. While admission is free, you will have to purchase a wristband to taste the assorted chili being served. Beverages, burgers and hotdogs will also be available for purchase.

Finally, Bay Plumbing held its open house and holiday party for Profit Inc. at Tarpon Bend that hosted a myriad of great parties this season.
