BrickGals went to the first annual Cooking Up Dreams event last year and let me tell you, AMAZING. Not only were the drinks free (bonus for BrickGals), the food was fantastic. Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho and Julie Grimes will once again be hosting Cooking Up Dreams on November 1st 2012, 7:30 to 10:30pm at The DoubleTree Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay. Celebrity chef Douglas Rodriguez & 14 other top chefs will be creating gourmet tastings to help raise money for The Foundation of New Education Initiatives. This organization supports innovative programs for students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Tickets are $75.
