Former Miami Heat player, Shane Battier and his wife Heidi, continue to give back to the community they call home by hosting the fourth annual “South Beach Battioke” on March 3rd, 8 p.m. at the Fillmore Theatre in Miami Beach – a star-studded, karaoke charity event where attendees included Miami’s elite, philanthropists and socialites while watching their favorite Miami Heat stars live out their pop star fantasies, all for a great cause.
“South Beach Battioke” 2015 is an annual event that raises funds and awareness for The Battier Take Charge Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Shane and his wife, Heidi. The foundation awards college scholarships to underprivileged high school students in Miami, Houston and Detroit. The foundation partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami, KIPP Academy in Houston and Horizon Upward Bound in Detroit by empowering our future young leaders to “Do Well, Do Good,” the phrase that serves as the motto of the foundation and the Battier family.
Attendees enjoyed delicious delectables from some of South Florida’s top restaurants including Bocce Bar, Estiatorio Milos by Costas Spiliadis, Haven, MC Kitchen, Misha’s Cupcakes, Pincho Factory, PM Fish & Steak House, Papa John’s Pizza, Siena Tavern, STK Miami Beach, Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill, Sweet Cravings, Tamarina Restaurant, The Cypress Room, The Embassy of Well Being and Debauchery, The Local Craft Food & Drink, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, and Truluck’s. The evening also included open bar and what everyone waits for every year, to see celebrities and their favorite Miami Heat players as they sing karaoke to raise money for college scholarships to underprivileged high school students.
