SGWS Wynwood Hosts Pace Center for Girls Summer Fundraiser in Miami

Earlier this year, James Beard award-winning chefs, and culinary professionals from Michelin-level restaurants gathered at SGWS Wynwood for the PACE Center for Girls' summer fundraiser. Some of South Florida’s most gifted culinarians worked together to create an over-the-top dinner, expertly paired with wines and cocktails. This event served an unforgettable fusion of flavors while supporting a meaningful cause.

The event was set against the backdrop of SGWS Wynwood—an epicenter of creativity and talent. Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits’ SGWS Wynwood is a 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, multipurpose center with a focus on hospitality and education for culinary-focused meetings and events. The expansive modern-industrial venue features four versatile spaces – The Mixology Lounge (110 guests), Tasting Room (60 guests), Founders Room (24 guests) and the Terrace (40 guests) – for meetings and events with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology. Constellation Culinary Group curates chef-driven offerings for corporate, culinary and social events and activations of all sizes.

This highly exclusive event, limited to just 100 seats, will feature a formal 10-course chef-driven dinner prepared by ten of Miami's top chefs. Presented in partnership with Kush Hospitality and Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits, "Taste for Pace" is an extraordinary evening of fine dining, crafted to honor and support the incredible work of the Pace Center for Girls Miami.
