Celebrate 50 Years with Baptist Hospital

The golden anniversary celebration of Baptist Hospital kicked off with “One Glowing Evening” at the Bice Restaurant, Hotel Victor, on South Beach. More than 200 guests attended the cocktail reception hosted by Baptist Health Foundation and sponsored by Lourdes Jofre-Collett, chair of the 2010 Baptist Ball. “Baptist Hospital is one of the most respected medical centers in South Florida, and we are thrilled to be celebrating 50 years of healthcare excellence in the community,” said Ms. Jofre-Collett.

The grand finale celebrating Baptist Hospital’s 50 years of excellence will take place on Saturday evening, November 20, at the Baptist Hospital Ball. The ball will be held on the Baptist campus, overlooking the historic landmark lake. Guests will arrive and walk the gold carpet, be greeted by the Baptist Hospital “Gold Ribbon” ball committee, and will toast the golden anniversary. Tapping into technology, guests will take a virtual tour of the past and preview what’s in store for the future as they celebrate the night away!

Be a part of this “once in a lifetime” event and join the celebration at the Baptist Hospital Ball. For more information, call 786-596-6535.
