Following remarks by Baptist Health South Florida President and CEO Brian E. Keeley and Baptist Health Foundation Board Chair Rudy Kranys, Foundation CEO Bill Banchs and CBS4 Chief News Anchor Rick Folbaum led the awards presentation, capped with a performance by singer, songwriter and pianist Frankie Moreno, named “Las Vegas Headliner of the Year” two times running.
