Supporters from the business, social and celebrity communities will join presenting sponsor Sharon & Mark Hamister and their special friends, along with the Honorable Raul Valdes-Fauli and his wife Francia, event chairs. MTIâ€™s million-dollar philanthropists, Linda and Phil Corey, Judith and Dr. Robert Cornfeld, Norman Millstein and Cynthia and Terry Taylor will be honored at the event. The evening will also feature a luxury silent and live auction including a one-of-a-kind timepiece from Hublot and a spectacular South Africa safari.
