About The Education Fund's Art Auction

The Education Fund’s “For the Love of Art” Charity Auction & Honoree Celebration is a highly successful annual event that highlights the essential role of the visual arts in stimulating creativity and academic success for children

Help our public school students by bidding on more than 150 one-of-a-kind art pieces created by the extraordinary talent in our public schools, and on more than 100 luxury items. All proceeds benefit public school students in Miami-Dade County.

Enjoy live jazz, specialty drinks by Bacardi, craft beer by Biscayne Bay Brewing Company and a paella feast prepared by the award-winning chefs at the Loews Hotel Miami Beach. Join us as we toast to the 25th anniversary of the Ocean Bank Center, The Education Fund’s free supplies program that’s provided more than $10.1 million in materials to help public school students in our community succeed.

Please join us as we honor community leaders who have graduated from our public schools and have achieved great success. We'll also announce the first Patron of the Arts honoree. See what a public school education can do for you!
