Nearly 700 community, business and society notables were taken through a bold and elegant depiction of A Frosted Masquerade Affair atÂ Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundationâ€™sÂ – The Diamond Ball.Â The event raised nearly $4 million, including announced gifts, to support world-class care at Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital. Guests of the Diamond Ball had the opportunity to see the world premiere of theÂ Bald, Brave, BeautifulÂ® I Will Survive music video, which Grammy Award-winning artist Gloria Gaynor recorded with Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital patients and supporters to raise funds to help find a cure and provide hope to children facing cancer. Following the music video premiere, Gaynor was inducted into the Ambassador David M. Walters International Pediatric Hall of Fame.Â Guests of the Diamond Ball had the opportunity to hear from 10-year-old leukemia patient Briana Vega, who appeared in the music video with Gaynor and shared her experience as a patient at Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital. Foundation Board Member Ravneet Chowdhury and Anand Chowdhury were so inspired by Vegaâ€™s story that they immediately pledged a $1.75 million donation in the young girlâ€™s honor. Ranked among the top fundraisers in Florida, the Diamond Ball also featured Daymond John, Founder & CEO of FUBU and Star of ABCâ€™s Shark Tank, as Master of Ceremonies, with entertainment by the Drew T Band. Other notable Diamond Ball attendees included Miami Heat Guard Mario Chalmers, Sports Illustrated Supermodel Nina Agdal, actor Juan Soler, CBS 4 Anchor Shannon Hori and The Real Housewives of Miami cast members Adriana DeMoura and Alexia Echavarria and others.
