Welcome to TaHEAti Beach!  For today’s #ThrowbackThursday, we’re featuring this year’s Miami HEAT Gala, presented by Hublot. – just in time for our advance into the Eastern Conference Finals! Hosted by Ray and Shannon Allen, the theme for this year’s event was TaHEATi Beach and even an unexpected cold front couldn’t stop us!  The event consisted of three design color phases for the event. As guests walked the red carpet into cocktail hour, they were greeted with Dom Perignon champagne, Polynesian dancers and plenty of Hublot bling! The dinner reception was inspired by a Tahitian sunset and was a wonderful time for the guests to interact with the HEAT players for games. The final touch was the event after party, which took place on a custom built deck overlooking the water. The design was inspired by the ocean, with plenty of blues and greens (plus strategically placed triangle heaters for warmth!). The night ended with an amazing fireworks show and special performance by Boys II Men.
