Amigos For Kids host the "Voya Miami Celebrity Domino Night" at Jungle Island

Sazoneros! There are plenty of amazing events taking place around town lately. Here's one I recently attended on Saturday, June 14th: The Voya Miami Celebrity Domino Night ! It's one of my favorite annual events in this city and can you believe more than 1,800 guests attended this year?
