Long-time supporters and event co-chairs Pam Giganti-Bunge & Alfred Bunge and Dr. Linda Neider & Dr. Paul Sugrue pulled out all the stops to make the 32nd Annual Informed Families Dinner at Joe’s the best yet. Guests enjoyed a wonderful street party prior to enjoying Joe's delicious stone crabs among old friends. The dinner raised over $200,000 to support Informed Families' programs and research-based initiatives designed to help kids grow up safe, healthy and drug free across Florida. Aside from Informed Families, the big winner of the evening was Sara Herald, who won dinner for 20 at Joe’s in the exclusive raffle opportunity.
