Chapman Partnership with assistance from WOW Factor Productions made a statement with a stunning display of lights and glamour for 500 guests at its 11th Annual Gala, chaired by Robert and Brenda Nestor Castellano, at the Marriott Marquis in Miami.

The party’s theme “Illuminates” included a performance by Twitch from Dance Attack, of dancers transformed from darkness to light, dramatizing how Chapman Partnership empowers the homeless in our community to transition from distress to hope.

Chapman Partnership Chairman Trish Bell thanked supporters of the black-tie affair, including The Batchelor Foundation, Publix Supermarkets Charities, Trish and Dan Bell, Betty Chapman, Penny and Roe Stamps, Pamela Garrison and R. Kirk Landon, Carnival Foundation, Codina Family, and emcee Laurie Jennings.

Executive Director H. Daniel Vincent presented the Alvah H. Chapman Jr. Humanitarian Award to R. Kirk Landon for his compassion and philanthropy in helping the homeless.

The evening continued with dancing to the wonderful sound of the Drew T. Band.
