17th Annual Guardians of the Children Luncheon
Benefiting Holtz Children’s Hospital
Over 500 philanthropists and community leaders attended the 17th Annual Guardians of the Children Luncheon benefiting Holtz Children’s Hospital at the JW Marriott Marquis Monday, Nov. 16 in beautiful downtown Miami.
Hosted by Jackson Health Foundation’s Guardian Angels in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue Dadeland, the luncheon raised over $550,000 that will be used to support the Holtz Children’s Hospital Child Life Program. The Child Life Program is comprised of healthcare professionals who play a critical role in the treatment and recovery of every child that visits the hospital. They are trained specialists who use therapeutic and recreational play to help each child understand their illness and medical procedures.
During the luncheon, guests were treated to an elegant fashion show by ETRO, featuring their 2016 Spring/Summer Collection – courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue Dadeland.
