Jackson Health Foundation Golden Angels Gala & Young Angels After Party

On the evening of January 20th, The Jackson Health Foundation officially kicked-off Jackson Health  100th Anniversary with a Golden Angels Centennial Gala.

Philanthropists, doctors, nurses community leaders and more attended the gala at the hip and chic Soho Studios in Wynwood. Following the Golden Angels Gala, the party continued with the Young Angels After Party to commemorate the unwavering support the foundations have received throughout the years.

Guests attending this year’s glamorous Miami chic gala wined, dined and danced the night away celebrating 100 years of Jackson. Guests also had access to an open-air cigar lounge and received an exclusive sneak peek of the Jackson Centennial Living Museum which will be featured at History Miami later in 2018.

Young angels are young professionals who are looking to make a difference. Established in 2015, the Young Angels are a dynamic group of leaders ages 21-40, who recognize the transformative power of philanthropy, volunteerism, and their ability to enact change through their actions.
The Young Angels believe that civic engagement is vital to the health of their community.  Members of this program engage in activities and/or provide educational services, namely classes, workshops, presentations, and lectures that promote an awareness of Jackson Health System’s programs and services as well as those provided by the Foundation.

Eddie & Maryam Borrego served co-chairs of this year’s Young Angels After Party. The after party included an entertaining evening featuring a bright and chic Latin night atmosphere featuring multiple bars. Guests were entertained by a giant robot, aerialists, a photo booth complete with carnival type costumes, and sweets booths.

Along with all the other amazing work and projects, the Foundation continues to invest in the Haitian community through its program IKF as result, Marlie Casseus continues to thrive and Jackson Health Foundation has a continued commitment to raising dollars that will impact the lives of children all over the world.

Since our inception in 1987, Jackson Health Foundation has raised more than $140 million to help Jackson Health System deliver the best possible care to the community, so we were very proud to see some of the key members of the Haitian community in attendance. Dr. Rudolph Moise who serves as Chairman of the Board of the Jackson Health Foundation attended with his wife and spoke to us about the importance of supporting an organization like Jackson Health.
