The evening will begin with world-class champagnes and gourmet chicken wings, hence, “Bubbles & Bones”! The Gala will also feature a delicious sit down dinner, as well as dancing and partying the night away.
Bubbles & Bones will be honoring Barry Kates, and is chaired by Julie Wilson-Watson.
Some have dubbed Barry Kates as the Mayor of Miami because he seems to know everyone, and he is a stranger to no one. Barry Kates worked for one of the top Anheuser Busch distributors while still at the University of Miami. He was responsible for various marketing efforts, and led initiatives for NFL Super Bowls, the College Football Championships, and NBA All-Star game. Barry was also instrumental in helping to build the Homestead-Miami Speedway. Barry then launched his own Agency – Innovative Group in 1999 which has catered to some of the most respected names in business. He is also involved with philanthropic causes and served as the Past President for the Entrepreneurs Organization of South Florida. Most notably, he became the youngest member voted to the Orange Bowl Committee and has proudly served for 19 years. He is proud to be a part of the Here’s Help family, and he has cherished his relationship with Footy for over 25 years.
