2009/2010 Gala Guide Album


Another stellar gala season has come and gone as Miami's philanthropic community continued to step to the plate, even during a period of economic downturn. From helping children, to finding cures for diseases, to assisting the poor and funding arts organizations, the 2009-10 charity gala season in Miami celebrated the best that humanity has to offer - and SocialMiami was there: promoting, documenting, supporting.
