Coral Gables Museum's An Evening on the Plaza
 
The Coral Gables Museum presented its fourth annual fundraiser, An Evening on the Plaza, on Saturday, November 15. The setting was the Museum’s beautiful Giralda Plaza, and the evening featured cocktails, dinner, live music and the presentation of the Museum's first Community Achievement Awards.

The event celebrated four individuals whose energy and vision have significantly improved the lives of many who live in Coral Gables and neighboring areas. The honorees were David Evensky, Thelma Gibson, H.T. Smith and Judith Weissel. Their accomplishments – and the evening’s theme – illuminated the Museum’s mission, which is to celebrate, investigate and explore the civic arts.
