55th Annual South Miami Hospital Mercury Ball

 55th Annual South Miami Hospital Mercury BallSaturday, March 7, 6pm-11:30pm – JW Marriott Marquis, 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami

Baptist Health South Florida Foundation will present the 55th Annual Mercury Ball, chaired by Raquel Hickey and Dr. Jorge and Kerry Perez. “Nautical Nights” is the theme of this year’s South Miami Hospital Ball with an evening that blends the excitement and romance of nights at sea. The reception will be paired with a silent auction, followed by dinner and dancing to live music by The Culture Band. During the evening, South Miami Hospital and Baptist Health Foundation will honor an admired member of the medical staff as “Person of the Year,” and a dedicated volunteer as “Philanthropic Volunteer of the Year.” This 55th annual gala – enhanced with a generous gift of $100,000 from Kidz Medical Services – will benefit the expansion of the South Miami Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where a full range of specialists provide around-the-clock care for babies requiring specialized attention, including those weighing less than 2.2 pounds. In addition to Kidz Medical Services, event sponsors include First National Bank of South Miami and Bacardi. A limited number of individual seats are available at $500 per person. For more information, email or call 786-467-5400. @BaptistHealthSF
