United Way Benefits From Mayor’s Ball
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and his wife, Lourdes, hosted the 13th Annual Mayor’s Ball, raising nearly $550,000 net to benefit United Way of Miami-Dade. Held at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, over 1000 business and community leaders attended and enjoyed performances and exhibitions presented by local youth. Joining the Mayor and Lourdes Gimenez as event co-chairs were Yolanda & Jeff Berkowitz, Shelly & Steve Brodie, and Irene & Manny J. Rodriguez. The Mayor’s Ball was created by former Mayor Alex Penelas and his wife, Lilliam, in 1998. United Way was selected as the beneficiary because of its broad reach across the county and its residents.
