Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, with Nathan & Alan Lieberman of the South Beach Group Hotels, hosted the Power of Art to Heal at the Hotel Croydon Miami Beach during Art Basel Miami 2017. The event was inspired by Mrs. Shafiroff’s desire to add a philanthropic element to the week’s events. “We all know art heals,” says Mrs. Shafiroff, citing art therapy utilized to treat those in need such as children battered by domestic abuse, veterans and individuals from war-torn countries suffering from PTSD, and incarcerated individuals for whom describing trauma might not be possible. “Art therapy is a common method of treatment by charitable organizations,” says Mrs. Shafiroff.

Mrs. Shafiroff felt that Art Basel Miami was the perfect event to draw attention to the role art can play in healing, and to bring the issue to the forefront of the minds of the influential art dealers, artists, exhibitors, and attendees. Mrs. Shafiroff suggested exploring how future art fairs might contribute in some way to local charities in the Miami area. In honor of the event, Mrs. Shafiroff will make a donation The South Florida Youth Foundation, founded and directed by Karen Fryd.



About The South Florida Youth Foundation:



The South Florida Youth Foundation (SFYF) began by providing educational supplies to the neediest schools in Miami’s inner-city. This engagement grew by building relationships with the City of Miami Police Department and Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Through concerned teachers and officers, the organization’s director, Karen Fryd, has been able to understand and engage with the poorest pockets of poverty. This has enabled an involvement for twenty years to directly address challenged situations in a grass-roots manner and getting quick results.



Projects have included: funding programs for disabled children, school supply drives, tickets to the arts, providing food for senior citizens, programs to incentivize better grades in school, assisting youth in attending college, programs to assist foster children, planting gardens, sponsoring music programs, prom programs, helping to create “The Shop” (a store where everything is free for students), opening a school library, and assisting in direct needs such as helping with electric bills and paying for hotels for families as they await placement in shelters, among others. All money donated to the SFYF goes directly to needs; not one dollar is spent on overhead.



The mission of The South Florida Youth Foundation: To help children achieve their fullest potential through education and to help break the cycle of poverty.

JUSTIN BIEBER ARRESTED IN MIAMI FOR DUI





Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI and it wasn't pretty, police say Justin was wasted and resisted arrest according to TMZ.


Law enforcement told TMZ ... Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn't end with DUI ... He was also busted for resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving on an expired license.


Law enforcement sources also told TMZ ... They believe Justin was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.


They were told the resisting arrest charge stems from Bieber refusing to take his hands out of his pockets when ordered to do so by cops.


The arrest occurred early Thursday morning. 


Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested, presumably to more precisely measure his blood alcohol level. Law enforcement sources say Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene ... and failed. 


His next stop will be jail, where he will be booked and processed and bail will be set.


UPDATED STORY:



According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- cops approached Bieber's car and they instantly realized he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes. He had a "stupor" look on his face.


The police report says ... Bieber was defiant from the get go, yelling at the cops, "Why the f**k are you doing this? He also yelled, "What the f**k did I do. Why did you stop me?"


When the officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, "I ain't got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f**k is this about?" Bieber claimed he wasn't drunk and coming back from recording music. That's not true, because we knew he was at a club.


Now the basis for the resisting arrest charge -- Before the pat down, as Bieber got out of the car, he "kept going into his pants pocket." The cop ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, and Bieber initially complied but soon took his hands off the car, turned and then cussed out the cop. The cop then grabbed Justin by the right arm, Justin pulled his arm away, and said, "What the f**k are you doing?"


The report says Justin was driving between 55 and 60 MPH in a 30 MPH residential area.
