Pridelines Masquerade Gala
Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables sponsored the Pridelines Masquerade Ball this past Saturday at Coral Gables’ iconic Biltmore Hotel. A donation of $150 per guest was required. The proceeds from the annually held gala benefit Pridelines Youth Services which is South Florida’s oldest service agency dedicated to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBT) community. This year’s Masquerade Themed Gala welcomed hundreds of elegantly masked invitees dressed to the tee. It featured an hour long cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a formal dinner, entertainment and dancing. The Biltmore Hotel was the perfect setting for an evening of elegance and romance. This historic building was constructed in 1926 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1996. When completed, the Biltmore was the tallest building in Florida and had the largest swimming pool in the world! It has played host to both Europe and Hollywood royalty and even served as a hospital during World War II. It has also been featured in many movies and television programs throughout the years. It is clear to see why the Biltmore was chosen to house this very memorable evening!
