Luncheon Kicks Off Guardian Angel Celebration

Southern comfort food and a sense of purpose were served at a luncheon co-hosted by Shannon Allen, wife of Miami Heat star Ray Allen, and Guardians of the Children Luncheon Chairman Yury Rossi for 30 friends, supporters and potential donors of Jackson Memorial Foundation’s Guardian Angels support group. The informal gathering at Whisk Gourmet Food and Catering, was a prelude to the 15th Annual Guardians of the Children Luncheon. Allen told guests that it is vital that the community supports Holtz Children’s Hospital at the UM/Jackson Memorial Medical Center. The Guardian Angels are raising funds for renovation of Holtz’s Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit, which is more than 40 years old. About 100 children are diagnosed with cancer at Holtz each year, and more than 1,000 are treated annually. Photo: (From left) Yury Rossi and Shannon Allen (in floral dress)
