In one unprecedented and glamorous evening, the community celebrated a new milestone in healthcare at The Grand Gala. More than 900 people attended the Gala to benefit the newly opened Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health.
As part of the evening, Nancy Brinker, who founded the Susan G. Komen organization in memory of her sister who died of breast cancer, was honored with the first Baptist Health South Florida Inspiration Award. In addition, actor Andy Garcia, who graduated from Miami Beach High and attended Florida International University, was named the inaugural Baptist Health South Florida Ambassador.
