One of South Florida’s most buzzworthy and highly anticipated weekends of the year, Irie Weekend, the Irie Foundation’s signature annual benefit, is a star-studded, non-stop weekend of festivities that draws participants from near and far. The weekend features a range of notable VIPs and events including the #InspIRIE Kids Golf Clinic, Irie Foundation #InspIRIE Dinner Gala, Celebrity Golf Tournament, Sea-B-Que Beach Bash pool party concert, Celebrity Brunch, and more. Irie Weekend is the “see-and-be-seen” social gathering kickin’ off the summer of ‘17.
A global powerhouse and highly sought after entertainer, brand ambassador, entrepreneur and philanthropist IRIE is your host for Irie Weekend XIII. Benefitting the IRIE Foundation, which works to provide South Florida’s troubled youth with unique educational & cultural programming and scholarship opportunities, Irie Weekend is the Foundation’s signature fundraising event. And this year, Irie Weekend is proud to be celebrating its 13th Anniversary!
Every year, the Irie Foundation strives to be a safe place for at-risk youth in the Miami area. One of the ways that this is achieved is via their Cultural Passport program that brings experiences to children that might not have the chance to take part in otherwise, due to their personal circumstances. On Thursday, June 29th, our 13th Annual Irie Weekend kicks off by giving kids the opportunity to learn golf tips from LPGA legend, Paula Pearson Tucker. A day like this allows them to take a step out of their struggles to spend a few hours without a worry in the world.
This year Team of H.O.P.E. had a first person view hands on experiencing the IRIE Weekend. Executive Director Enrique Rodriguez was hands on volunteering at the Armour 13th Annual Irie Weekend Celebrity Golf Tournament presented by Ford.
"It was such an compelling experience, to see so many people having a good time and at the end of the day all for a great cause"
