WHAT The Love and Hope High Rollers Night drew Miami’s philanthropic set to bet on a cure while raising money for the Diabetes Research Institute.
WHERE The Faena Forum played host to this charitable casino night.
WHO More than 300 supporters hit the tables for this Vegas-themed event, including Love and Hope international co-chairs Linda and Barry Gibb, honorary chair Barbara Shapiro, national chair Kathy Simkins, executive chairman Sandra Levy and more.
WHY The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine works nonstop to end diabetes.
La Liga Contra el Cáncer (the League Against Cancer) geared up for its annual telemarathon with a cocktail party and dinner, which took place the evening before the main event — a beloved community tradition. The occasion served to honor volunteers, volunteer physicians and corporate sponsors for their continued support of La Liga and their life-saving programs. All proceeds from the events and the telethon will benefit uninsured and low-income cancer patients otherwise unable to afford expensive treatment.
