Heat raise more than $1.2 million at TaHEATi Beach charity event

The franchise's annual charity event is once again another huge success...

The Miami Heat announced that they raised over $1.2 million at the "TaHEATi Beach" charity benefit held at the Coral Gables home of Ray Allen and his wife Shannon Allen.

All of the entire Heat players as well as coach Erik Spoelstra, owner Micky Arison, team president Pat Riley and over 150 guests came out for a live auction hosted by Sun Sports reporter Jason Jackson and a performance from none other than Boyz II Men.

The R&B group shared the stage with the entire HEAT team and together they opened with "Motown Philly" and continued on with songs such as "Water Runs Dry" and "I'll Make Love to You." The group closed the show with "End of the Road," which they sang alongside hosts Ray and Shannon Allen.

"This is our sixth year bringing players, coaches and guests together for a very personal and enjoyable evening," said HEAT President, Pat Riley. "It's such a great way for everyone to relax while raising money for a variety of important causes that are near and dear to us all."

Hublot sponsored the event and Moet Hennessy, Smith & Wollensky, Metro Signs and Aventura Limo all assisted at the $20,000 per couple event.
