As the first fall breeze ushered in another Miami season, Toys for Boys celebrated the occasion with a waterside brunch at the River Yacht Club. The event, which took place on Sunday, October 23rd, brought together a group of enthusiasts who came to preview the all new 2017 Aston Martin DB11, the latest in the brand’s range. Welcomed by a fleet of Aston Martins brought from The Collection, guests test drove the cars before entering the venue for brunch. Amongst the most exciting surprises of the day was the presence of the quite rare Aston Martin DB10 originally used in the James Bond film, “Spectre”—one of ten in the world. 

Once ushered in, guests were greeted with an Armand de Brignac champagne reception in the courtyard of the exclusive VanDutch lounge. Brunch was served in the private, glass walled dining room for a select group of 50 that included professional tennis player, Bernard Tomic; president of The Collection, Ken Gorin; Owner of VanDutch, Anko Mast; Owner of Palmer Johnson Yachts, Timur Mohammed; and many other Toys for Boys VIPs and top clients of The Collection. 

After enjoying a multi-course champagne brunch, the afternoon culminated with the water side of this experiential afternoon: attendees boarded VanDutch vessels for an afternoon cruise that was the perfect end to a Sunday. Toys for Boys partners Jet Smarter were also present sharing news of their truly unique approach to private jet travel, ensuring the day covered all bases, road, sea and sky.
