Valentine’s Day was sweet for Livan Echevarria. Echevarria, a Miami hairstylist, won a new 2010 Volkswagen EOS in a random drawing on Feb. 14th that supported the Adrienne Arsht Center and its resident companies.
With romance and Rachmaninoff in the air, Echevarria’s name was plucked from 520 others during intermission of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s richly dramatic performance with music director Leonard Slatkin. Esserman International owner Ron Esserman announced the winning ticket from the First Tier balcony in the Knight Concert Hall lobby.
The award-winning hardtop convertible – on display for the past few months in the Adams Foundation Lobby at the Center’s Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House – was generously donated by Esserman International as part of Arts Odyssey, an unprecedented fundraising collaboration between the Adrienne Arsht Center, Miami City Ballet, Florida Grand Opera and New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy. Chances for the car were sold for $100 each. Proceeds from the random drawing will be shared by the four Miami arts organizations.
Joining the exciting scene on the balcony, Adrienne Arsht Center CEO John Richard thanked Mr. Esserman for his outstanding support of the Center and the arts in Miami. Esserman is one of the Center’s founding donors.
The VW EOS coupe is aptly named after the goddess of wind and dawn, but it was music to the ears of this lucky winner.
