WELLINGTON, FLA. – FEB. 13, 2020 – Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party returns to the Wanderers Club on March 20 with a new air of luxury for its third-annual VIP Dinner on the Veranda. Lugano’s Touch of Orange Dinner will elevate the event with elegance and an exceptional sparkle that will both excite and inspire VIP guests. From their Lugano Diamond models to an exciting Luxury Charity Drawing featuring an exclusive Lugano piece of jewelry as the grand prize, Lugano’s Touch of Orange Dinner provides the ideal celebration with a bird’s eye view of Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party below.
“Lugano Diamonds is thrilled to serve as the presenting sponsor for the Touch of Orange Dinner taking place during the Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party,” said Moti Ferder, CEO and design director of Lugano Diamonds. “As a long-standing supporter of the equine community, our collection includes a dazzling array of equestrian-inspired pieces. From stunning stones to our one-of-a-kind designs, we craft our bespoke pieces to match our clients’ lifestyles – show-stopping while elegantly subtle.”
Several Lugano pieces will be showcased on the VIP Veranda for the duration of the cocktail reception and Lugano’s Touch of Orange Dinner, as well as seen on the distinctive Lugano models who will display the one-of-a-kind pieces both poolside near the Lugano Diamonds Cabana as well as on the VIP Veranda. Lugano’s Touch of Orange Dinner table hosts will also receive an exclusive gift from Lugano, to thank them for their support of Brooke USA on behalf of working equines worldwide.
“We are thrilled that Lugano Diamonds has joined us this year as the presenting sponsor of our Touch of Orange Dinner. Each year we add an extra level of sophistication to the dinner and Lugano certainly elevates the program several notches for 2020,” said Katherine Kaneb, Brooke USA’s Vice Chair of the Board of Directors and Honorary Chair of Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party. She added, “On a personal note, I have always believed that a piece of jewelry is a piece of art and Lugano is providing us with masterpieces for our luxury charity drawing. We are very grateful for their support and commitment to our cause.”
In previous years, Brooke USA has hosted an array of live auction items; however, in honor of the event’s fifth year, Lugano Diamonds has generously donated the grand prize for the Luxury Charity Drawing at the Touch of Orange Dinner. With only 300 tickets available for purchase, the odds are more than favorable for the opportunity to win one of three dazzling pieces, each valued at approximately $25,000. Tickets for the drawing will become available February 20, 2020.
The winner of the drawing will have the opportunity to choose from the following:
Rose Cut Diamond Hoop Earrings – Regally luxurious. Lugano’s mesmerizing Rose Cut Diamond Hoops burst with over four carats of rose cut collection VS diamonds and over one-and-a-half carats of round brilliant collection VS diamonds set in 18k white gold.
Rose Cut Dangle Chain Necklace – This exquisite Rose Cut Dangle Chain Necklace captivates with more than eight carats of shimmering rose cut collection VS diamonds set in 18k white gold. Simply sublime.
Flex White Diamond Bangle paired with Flex Black Diamond Bangle – Classic perfection. With nearly three carats of round brilliant collection VS diamonds, Lugano’s stunning Flexible Diamond Bangle combines with the magic of nearly four carats of round black diamonds in a Flexible Black Diamond Bangle to radiate just the right amount of sparkle.
A second ticket will be drawn for the opportunity to win a five or seven-night Caribbean cruise for two with an Ocean View or Balcony Cabin, donated by Celebrity® Cruises. The winner is eligible to pay for an upgrade to a different destination, including the Galapagos, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand or Asia.
The presenting media sponsor of the event is South Florida PBS, who will join Lugano Diamonds at an exclusive reception prior to the Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party to honor the 2020 Brooke USA Crystal Award recipients, Antonia Ax:son Johnson, Richard Schechter, and Michael and Hazel Schultz.
