The Mission of the Sunny Isles Beach Foundation is to invest in the future of the City of Sunny Isles Beach with a permanent charitable endowment dedicated to promote quality of life through multidisciplinary cultural arts and government initiatives designed to incite and inspire engagement of the City's diverse population, to focus on creative public space and place making, and transform the culture of Sunny Isles Beach.
The Sunny Isles Beach Jazz Fest is an annual event held every year at Heritage Park in Sunny Isles Beach. Attracting people from all over South Florida, each year Jazz Fest showcases a variety of locally and nationally renowned jazz musicians in a lavish tropical setting, including greats such as Spyro Gyra and the Neville Brothers.
The Sunny Isles Beach Foundation was a proud presenting sponsor of the 7th Annual Sunny Isles Beach Jazz Fest which took place on November 15, 2014. It was a beautiful evening for jazz music under the stars; Rochelle Lightfoot, Brenda Alford, LeNard Rutledge and Leon Foster Thomas accompanied by the Melton Mustafa Orchestra, lit up the night. With record attendance and a few new additions, this year was touted as the "best ever."
