What is Amigos Night?

Welcome to Amigos Night, the pinnacle of Amigos For Kids' annual event! Formerly known as Miami Celebrity Domino Night, this signature gathering has seen record-breaking attendance in recent years, attracting Miami's crème de la crème, including celebrities, media personalities, political and corporate leaders, and the social elite. 

Amigos Night is an evening of local entertainment, restaurants, businesses, and activities that put the spotlight on our hometown: Miami. With a live band, Bacardi’s open bar, curated bites by local dives and hotspots, and games of domino so lively you’d think you were transported to Calle Ocho - it truly is an opportunity to gather and celebrate the people and places that make Amigos For Kids the organization it is.

This year, we are overjoyed to return to The Hangar at Regatta Harbor as our host venue - a breezy and beautiful seaside location offering us both indoor and outdoor spaces to bring you a night to remember. Join us for an unforgettable evening with good music, great food and the best people in Miami!
