View PDF Invitation Here

On April 25, philanthropists and community leaders across the region will come together for the 2015 Sylvester Gala presented by the JW Marriott Marquis Miami to support our research programs, celebrate our progress, and honor our most-committed champions. We invite you to join our fight against cancer by sponsoring this signature event.

Contemporary, influential musical performer, singer-songwriter and pianist, Sara Bareilles, known for her powerful music, including the pop anthem “Brave”, will take the stage to entertain and inspire. Community leader and compassionate advocate, Barbara Hecht Havenick will receive the prestigious Caroline W. Halpern Award for leadership and philanthropy. The 2015 Gala is chaired by Chanin & Adam Carlin under the direction of Lily Serviansky, Board of Governors Development Chair and Joan Scheiner, Board of Governors Chair.

Guests may bid on fabulous items in the luxury silent auction, and can dance to the music of Juniors’ Band. A signature keepsake program book will recognize leadership and donors.

Private philanthropy plays a critical role in fueling the growth of new research programs –and ultimately enhancing Sylvester’s ability to offer the latest life-saving treatments to South Floridians. Every gift made to the 2015 Gala will enable Sylvester to advance our research priorities and take one additional step in the fight against cancer!
