Baptist Health Foundation and South Miami Hospital will host the 57th Mercury Ball. Co-chairs for this year’s ball are Debbie and Albert Tano, M.D., and Kerry and Jorge Perez, M.D. The black-tie event features a reception at 7 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing from 8 p.m. to midnight. Proceeds from the ball will benefit the Child Development Center at South Miami Hospital. In addition to an elegant dinner and live music, the ball will include a 50-year tradition associated with the Mercury Ball: The naming of South Miami Hospital’s “Person of the Year.” Prior years’ honorees include Bruce Wirtz MacArthur, Yvonne Turner Johnson, M.D., and Ghassan Haddad, M.D. Individual tickets are $600.
