Informed Families Vice Chairman John Hofmann & wife Ivette with Paula & Informed Families Chairman Mike Fay of Colliers International

The 26th Annual Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership Dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant was celebrated with all the elements families love most about Miami – great music, amazing food, celebrity sightings and an exclusive prize. The 26th Annual Dinner at Joe’s was kicked-off with a pre-social, featuring appetizers from the famed South Beach landmark restaurant, along with the opportunity to win dinner for 20 guests at Joe’s. It was announced at the end of the evening that Betty Park, wife of Bud Park and mother of Boo Zamek and Morgan Smith, won the dinner.

A surprise group of Celebrity Maitre ‘Ds consisting of Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman, Senator Gwen Margolis, Kathy Fernandez-Rundle, State Representative Julio Robaina and Marilyn Milian led partygoers into the dinner at 7:30 p.m., where guests enjoyed Joe’s signature dishes and legendary service – all for a great cause: preventing youth substance abuse.

Event co-chairs were Chico & Cindy Goldsmith and Robin & Susan Shelley of the Goldsmith Family Foundation.
