Baptist Health Foundation, the fundraising division of the not-for-profit Baptist Health South Florida, hosted an elite group of philanthropists at "A Celebration of Generosity" November 14. The exclusive event brought together the Foundation's most generous donors – members of the "President's Circle" and "Chairman's Circle" of its Giving Society – representing those whose contributions to Baptist Health have reached $1,000,000 or more.

The generous honorees enjoyed an intimate dinner and conversation at Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club with Baptist Health’s President & CEO Brian E. Keeley, EVP & Chief Operating Officer Wayne Brackin, EVP and Chief Administrative Officer Joe Natoli, Baptist Health Foundation Board Chair Tomas Erban and Foundation CEO Bill Banchs. A professional harpist played light classical music while the guests dined on filet mignon, Chilean sea bass, wild mushroom risotto and delectable desserts. Baptist Health executives capped the evening with a toast to the donor-honorees, calling them "beacons of inspiration" for others to support the organization through philanthropy.
