The National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) celebrated its 53rd Annual Gala for Hope at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami.

The evening began with a cocktail reception, silent auction and dancing to the renowned Steven Chase Orchestra. Guests enjoyed purchasing a mystery blue box from the Tiffany wall, generously donated by Tiffany & Co. Tony Segreto, retired NBC 6 news anchor, hosted the event and picked the winner of a Bahamas cruise donated by Norwegian Cruise Line. NPF president and CEO, Joyce Oberdorf, and NPF board chair, Dr. Bernard Fogel presented a Corporate Partner Award to the Medtronic Foundation, a Chapter Leader Award to the South Palm Beach County Chapter of NPF and four Community Leader Awards.
