Important Event Update: Diamond Ball Postponed Until Spring 2022

Each year, we look forward to hosting our signature gala to raise essential funds for the patients and families of Nicklaus Children's Hospital. Over the past 15 years, Diamond Ball has been, and continues to be, an important fundraiser to help children receive world-class pediatric care.

In light of the surge of COVID-19 cases in our community, we have decided to postpone Diamond Ball until spring 2022. While this decision is not what we intended, we must prioritize the health and safety of our community and its children.

We are eager to reschedule Diamond Ball as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we encourage you and your family to continue taking precautions to stay safe by masking up, washing your hands, social distancing and getting vaccinated for all those who are eligible.

Thank you for partnering with us to help make Diamond Ball an extraordinary event. If you are a sponsor or purchased tickets, we will be in touch. If you would like to reach us, please contact our Special Events team at Carmen.Hidalgo@Nicklaushealth.org or call the foundation office directly at (305)666-2889.

Stay safe,

2021-2022 Diamond Ball Benefiting Nicklaus Children's Hospital

Date: New date will be announced soon
Location: Loews Miami Beach Hotel, 1601 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139

The gala will support our vision for the future of pediatric healthcare. During the program, we will pay tribute to our 2021 Ambassador David M. Walters International Pediatric Hall of Fame Inductees Vivian and Juan Carlos Mas.

Nicklaus Children's is South Florida's only freestanding hospital exclusively for children, and with your help, this year's Diamond Ball will continue to deliver on our promise to provide them with amazing patient care.

Welcome 2021-2022 Diamond Ball Chairs Salo and Olga Grosfeld

Salo and Olga are committed to the needs of children and families in our community and amazing supporters of Nicklaus Children's Hospital. In his role as President of J.R. United Industries, Salo manufactured and donated 80,000 cloth masks to the School District of Palm Beach County last year, providing a mask for every child enrolled at a K-5 public school. Salo serves on the Board of Directors of Nicklaus Children's Hospital Foundation. We are grateful for the support and leadership of the Grosfeld family.

Continuing Our Tradition

At past Diamond Ball events, hundreds of community members joined us for an evening of dinner, dancing and fundraising, all to benefit the quality of life, programs and services that support the health and well-being of the children we serve. In 2020, our event went completely virtual with a live auction and silent auction benefiting the COVID-19 Relief Fund. Read about our most recent Virtual Diamond Ball.
