South Florida’s top philanthropists and community leaders recently attended Jackson Health Foundation’s Annual Recognition Dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab on Miami Beach. The sold-out event celebrated the contributions and fundraising efforts of the Foundation’s Golden Angel Society during the current fiscal year. The Golden Angels took over the entire restaurant for the 10th consecutive year. “I am humbled and grateful for the support we have received from our Golden Angels,” said Keith R. Tribble, President & CEO of Jackson Health Foundation. “This generous group of individuals makes it possible for us to maintain our cherished mission of providing Jackson Health System with the support needed to continue delivering quality healthcare to Miami-Dade residents, for many years to come.”
During the evening, Jackson Health Foundation recognized individuals and organizations who became new Golden Angels during this fiscal year. This year’s principal honorees were Grand Seraphim Angels, Harvey and Roberta Chaplin who were celebrated for serving as Honorary Chairs of the Foundation’s 25th Birthday Bash, chaired by Fana Holtz and Janice Lipton. This philanthropic couple has supported Jackson Health Foundation for many years and some of their most notable contributions include the Roberta Orlen Chaplin Digital Breast Imaging
Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, and the Chaplin Family Pediatric Emergency Room at Holtz Children’s Hospital.
The event also served to celebrate the Foundation’s accomplishments throughout the fiscal year, which included executing the official ceremonial groundbreaking for the José Milton Memorial Hospital after receiving a $10 million gift from The José Milton Foundation, an unprecedented success in the Foundation’s history. Other honorees in attendance included, Dr. Rodolfo and Mercedes Hernandez, the Miami Heat Charitable Fund, Dr. Ino Halegua, Debra Gordon and Lynn Gordon, Jeannie Etter and David Coulson, Robert Zarco, Felipe Fons and Lorena Dotson De Fons, amongst others.
