We encourage you to join Friends of Toscana, among Miami’s most exclusive and benevolent loyalty dining programs with two goals we hold dear. The first is to do something tangible to raise awareness about and battle childhood hunger. It’s hard to comprehend, but there are children that go hungry in our beautiful state of Florida. In fact, approximately 1.1 million children that reside here do not have enough food to eat.* These are normal kids that attend our Florida schools but come from homes where their parents are simply unable to provide the three basic daily meals that so many take for granted.
For these children, an omnipresent cloud obscures their quality of life in the Sunshine State and this is something we find heartbreaking. So, to do something tangible to help eradicate childhood hunger, we’ve joined the Dine Out with No Kid Hungry program so that we can donate the entire amount we raise when our clients join the Friends of Toscana program. Each dollar will provide ten meals and our objective for 2018 is to have funded 100, 000 meals.
Our second goal with Friends of Toscana is to cultivate long-term relationships with the clients we cherish and to show them we appreciate their loyalty. With so many dining options in Miami, we’re indebted to those who visit frequently and Friends of Toscana is a way for us to give back. Prospective members can join with as large or small of a donation that they would like to make.
In exchange for our member’s generosity, we provide the following perks.
Wine’d Down Mondays – Mondays are challenging. We get it. We’ve thought of a way to end the day on a high note: join us for a delicious, authentic Italian meal and wind down with a bottle of your favorite wine at a 50% discount on any selection from our cellar, which houses one of Miami’s largest offerings from Italy’s most prestigious vintners. What makes this an outstanding benefit? There are no exclusions. So, for Friends of Toscana, Monday is the best day of the week because it’s the day to enjoy that rare or limited reserve bottle you’ve been dreaming about! Another vino perk? In the rare event that we don’t have what you desire, members are always exempt from corkage fees anytime!
Exclusive Pricing – Members of Friends of Toscana receive a 10% discount on their check as well as complimentary or discounted admission to special events that include exclusive, private wine tastings and cooking seminars.
VIP Status – Members of Friends of Toscana get VIP reservation status and are given first priority to register for special events.
“We’re passionate about sharing this program with our clients and to incentivize their membership we’re, essentially, giving the cost to join Friends of Toscana back to them through discounted prices, making it a win-win,” said Tommaso Morelato, President of Toscana Divino. He added, “We’re a conduit for positive change. We leverage our loyalty club to increase awareness and recruit more people to No Kid Hungry‘s critical crusade.”
So, dine with intention and please ask your server about Friends of Toscana the next time you visit.
