On December 12, 2013, I attended The Dream black-tie event, hosted by “Mind Over Man” Jim Karol, America’s foremost memory and brain training expert recognized for his incredible memory and unusually high brain capacity, and Juaquin Malphurs, better known as musician Waka Flocka, a rapper from Atlanta committed to building community by giving back. This event featured inspirational stories of brain recovery, dinner, a live/silent auction and entertainment at Miami Beach’s legendary The Temple House.
The makers of ItsPurelyMental.com, a new brain training website launching in 2014, presented the annual black-tie fundraiser in support of brain research. This year’s beneficiaries were the International Brain Research Foundation, a 501c3 public charity dedicated to helping individuals with brain conditions and the local beneficiary, Lighthouse Foundation, whose mission is to assist children and their families in South Florida who struggle with educational, financial, and medical hardships. Organizers hope to raise $100,000 at this year’s soiree with 250 plus guests in attendance.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, which featured a Flying Le Grand Saint Angel pouring Le Grand Saint Rose’ Sparkling Vodka in the center of the beautifully decorated room. Cocktail hour was followed by a three-course dinner with wine service. We learned about the powers of brain training as former coma patients shared their remarkable stories of revival and recovery. Live entertainment included world-renowned pianist ELEW, and a special guest DJ, who provided upbeat music for attendees to dance the night away!
Here is my photo recap of this amazing evening. Enjoy!
