Join the Young Society of Love and Hope at the 7th Annual Haute Tea luncheon and hat party at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort. The day features formal tea service, delicious food, a silent and live auction and a hat contest judged by popular South Florida fashion experts.

Proceeds will support the cure-focused research at the Diabetes Research Institute.

This year's garden-themed event will be held in honor of four incredibly special and well-deserving women in our community - Linda Finkelstein and her daughters Barbara Amoils, Robin Gale and Pamela Bernstein. As a family determined to find a cure, their commitment, dedication and tireless efforts supporting the DRI has spanned over 40 years, ever since Pam was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 11.

We are pleased to annouce our 2018 Haute Tea Mistress of Ceremonies is CBS4's Lisa Petrillo!
