The Wolfsonian Museum entryway was decorated with images chosen from their extensive collection of vintage ocean liner brochures. Historic ocean liner menus, ads, and even a Queen Mary purse from The Wolfsonian’s collection were displayed in cases for guests to view.

After dinner, Larry Pimentel and Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine presented an auction. Two Azamara cruises in the Azamara Club World Owner’s Suite were auctioned off, with proceeds of $44,000 going towards the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University and The Wolfsonian-FIU.
