The pomp and splendour of a coronation ceremony with a nod to the dashing modern day royals, will set the stage for a British themed gala when the Coral Gables Community Foundation presents the city’s most anticipated, lively and elegant affair of the year. 

The Biltmore Ball to Benefit the Coral Gables Community Foundation, a black-tie fundraiser, will honor influential members of Coral Gables: Jim & Susan Carr for the Philanthropy Award; Gene & Frances Sevilla-Sacasa for the Arts & Culture Award presented by Trish & Dan Bell; Earl & Christy Powell for the Jerry Santeiro Community Award; Dr. Paul George for the Education Award; Andre Dawson for the Sports & Wellness Award presented by Doctors Hospital and Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute; and Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables for the Landmark Award presented by The Biltmore. 

In the spirit of this year’s theme, London Calling, “Windsor Wonderland,” Miami’s high society ladies will don tiaras and satin gowns, while gentlemen will sport tails in a nod to ancient and ruling monarchs.  Co-chaired by Sissy DeMaria Koehne and Lauren Harrison, the gala provide an evening of enchantment and unparalleled elegance.
