George Soros in the spotlight again

George Soros is an intereting individual when it comes to his involvement in the Democratic party. There was a time when he was considered the deep pockets the party needed in order to win a campaign. Like Warren Buffett, he stook out in the landscape of billionaire businessmen because he had a liberal bent to his politics. This made him somewhat of a rockstar, even as he usually sought to fade into the background. It wasn’t that Soros was doing anything untoward, he simply wasn’t someone who really enjoyed the spotlight.

Then, suddenly, Soros appeared to have really faded into the background. The money stopped coming into liberal candidates. The money stopped coming into liberal causes. People wondered if there hadn’t been a change of heart after being let down by too many causes or too many candidates. It turned out one of the richest men in the world was simply keeping his head down for a bit. Read his profile at Forbes.

In 2016, it appeared George Soros has officially walked to the front of the stage and announced his presence. Soros not only started giving money to people and problems he wanted to fix, he started giving money in sums that blew away what people had expected to see. Last year, Politico reported he gave more than $25 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

It’s possible at least part of the reason he gave so much is because of who she was going up against. Soros must have realized that having a president Trump in the White House was not going to be good for the many subjects he’s feel passionately about. Let alone what a Trump presidency was going to do to the country he called home.

Soros was so engaged in the presidential race, there had even been talk he was going to be making an appearance at the Democratic National Committee in July of 2016. Despite being a liberal lion for decades, this appearance would have marked his first at such an event.

The billionaire ended up not attending because he has also just recently gotten back into actively trading. He felt that his attention should be focused on a situation that was forming in Europe. Politics is far from the only thing he wants to do when it comes to his liberal causes.

George Soros has also given a reported $33 million in the last year to groups that have emboldened activists in places like Ferguson, Missouri. The Washington Times says there are plenty of people who credit Soros with getting an activist movement in that area off the ground. It appears that as long as he supports the cause, George Soros is perfectly comfortable once again in using his money to speak for him. Read more on NYTimes.com.

Danilo Diaz Granados Toys For Boys Party Is A Rousing Success

The Toys for Boys event recently held in downtown Miami was a phenomenal success. Hosted by Danilo Diaz Granados, many of the most affluent and influential people in the city attended.

Granados pulled out all the stops, and the soiree went off without a hitch. The event featured many fun-filled activities including helicopter rides, great food, rivers of Dom Perignon and a moonlit boat ride. Since the event’s inception in 2013, Granados has spared no expense.

“I wanted to make this an experience of a lifetime,” said Granados on his Twitter. “Now the most affluent men in the area have a place to explore the most extravagant products. The hand-picked guest were treated to an intimate breakfast and a private preview of an upscale building due for construction.

The goal of the Toys for Boys Event is to offer select participants a taste of the upscale Miami lifestyle.

The 30 minute helicopter ride seemed to be the highlight of the event. Granados joined his guest on a ride to the local Palm Beach Race Track. Each man got a chance to man the wheel and take a spin around the track. The event followed up with a lunch at the River Yacht Club. At the end of the day, the men went on a sunset boat cruise along the Miami River.

The event was a great success, according to party goers. Granados says he will have another event in a few months. “We will introduce new toys and have a great time like before.”.  Be sure to follow him on Google +.
