Carolina Diago, Circle of Heroes Luncheon Mistress of Ceremonies; Toni Gardner.

Over 250 compassionate supporters of the International Kids Fund Wonderfund (IKF) attended the 2016 Circle of Heroes Luncheon, held at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden at Coral Gables. The luncheon celebrated the lives of the many children saved thanks to the generosity of IKF’s Circle of Heroes and also served as a platform to welcome new members.

TV personality and philanthropist Carolina Diago served as Mistress of Ceremony. Sponsors of the Circle of Heroes luncheon included DIA-M.co, La Maison De Pascale, Southern Wine & Spirits, Selecta Magazine and the Miami Herald. Miami-born and internationally acclaimed artist Alexander Mijares donated a hand-painted artwork entitled “Accept The Change” that served as the luncheon’s backdrop. The painting was auctioned off during the event.

IKF, a program of the Jackson Health Foundation provides support to children from around the world who are in need of life-saving and life-changing medical care that is not available to them in their home country.
