MCCJ 80th Anniversary Gala
Benefiting the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews
Since 1946, MCCJ has awarded the coveted Silver Medallion to outstanding leaders who have exhibited extraordinary humanitarian efforts in the community that mirror MCCJ’s mission of creating an inclusive community. This year’s “pop up” gala celebrated MCCJ’s 80th Anniversary. The event, themed as “Building a More Inclusive Community”, took place for one-night only high above the city on the 19th floor of the Marriott Marquis.
The 80th Anniversary celebration highlighted the efforts of five individuals who have helped build a more welcoming, inclusive, just and cooperative society.
Award recipients included Maria C. Alonso, Dr. Doured Daghistani and Joseph T. Natoli. This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award went to Arthur Hertz, and the Clergy Medallion went to Eduardo Diaz. WPLG Local 10’s Calvin Hughes and Glenna Milberg hosted the event along with chairs Sheldon and Florence Anderson and honorary chairs Al and Earlene Dotson, Sr. and Tony and Conchi Argiz. MCCJ’s Board Chair is Michelle Ramirez Patricios.
Following the beautiful dinner, guests were treated to bowling, billiards, chocolate and champagne during the after-party.
