Guests will be spiraling down the rabbit hole into the Doctors HospitalÂ â€œWhimsical Wonderland Ballâ€Â on May 17, 2014 at the US Century Bank Arena at FIU. In only its third consecutive year, the Doctors Hospital Ball continues its tradition of awe-inspiring interactive entertainment, as well as distinguishing itself as the grand finale to South Floridaâ€™s gala season. The Doctors Hospital â€œWhimsical Wonderlandâ€ Ball aims to ignite all of the senses with unique musical talent, aerialists and entertainment sure to amaze even the most seasoned ball-goer. The energy will not end at the Whimsical Wonderland Ball: just when guests think the night is over, #AfterWonderland will get into high gear bringing young philanthropists from our community for the second part of the evening at 10 pm and running through 2 am. Just as last yearsâ€™ The Madness Continues after-party extended the excitement and dancing of the ball to the wee hours of the morning.
Presented by Doctors Hospital Foundation and organized by community volunteers, the ball is chaired by Ilien and Keith Hechtman, M.D., with co-chairs Patricia and Carlos Garcia, Esq., and Abby and Jose Portuondo, M.D. This dynamic team has chaired the ball since its inception and continues to bring energy, excitement and passion to the spectacular event. When developing themes, the goal of the chairs is simple, to continuously â€œraise the barâ€ from the previous year and maintain the tradition to â€œWOWâ€ guests at every corner they turn. This philosophy is the secret formula why this ball is so well attended year after year.Â Individual tickets are $500.
