Amigos for Kids hosts their 2010 ING Miami Celebrity Domino Night at Jungle Island

On Saturday, June 19th, Amigos for Kids hosted their highly anticipated annual fundraiser: ING Miami Celebrity Domino Night! Jungle Island was overflowing with Miami's hottest celebrities, community leaders and domino players. Among the celebs, I ran into the lovely Mariana Rodriguez, Host of Telemundo's Acceso Total, looking fabulous in a pink cocktail dress (pictured on the right). As far as the celebration, guests were treated to a tropical paradise as soon as they entered the courtyard! The night featured Samba & Salsa dancers, a live Cuban band and dinner-bites from restaurants like Sushi Maki, Giardino Gourmet Salads and Versailles. Since Bacardi USA was one of the official sponsors of this event, there were plenty of open bars for guests to enjoy as well. All proceeds from the evening benefited Amigos for Kids, a non-profit organization that supports South Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children and their families through education, abuse prevention and community involvement. To become an Amigo by donating your time or other resources to children in need, call 305.279.1155 or visit

Ximena Duque, Kothan Fernandez and Candela Ferro attended the event to support Amigos for Kids.

You cannot have a party in Miami without a little sazon!
