The Inaugural Bella's Ball
 
Guests at Tutti Bambini's Inaugural Bella’s Ball were given the red-carpet treatment as soon as they arrived at Jungle Island! The first-ever gala evening, sponsored by Reception Palace Ballrooms and ALC Home Health, among others, raised over $200,000 to benefit pediatric cancer research.

The legacy of Bella Rodriguez-Torres shined brightly on the more than 900 guests who attended this golden affair and supported a great cause. An emotional, yet very inspirational, Rodriguez- Torres family celebrated the life of their beloved Bella in the spotlight of the event held in her memory.

It was a packed house as “Bella Believers” came together to continue the fight against cancer. Celebrities and public figures from all over the world lent their support, including Whoopi Goldberg, Kimora Lee Simmons and Gloria Estefan. In attendance at the gala were MLB Pitcher of the Year Jose Fernandez, Jon Secada, Jencarlos Canela, Tony Dize and Senator Marco Rubio, among others.

Next year’s gala event will fall nothing short of the magical night that set the platform for the first of many galas to come for the Live Like Bella® Foundation.
