Join us for Diamond Ball on Saturday, April 2, 2022!

When: April 2, 2022
Where: Loews Miami Beach Hotel, 1601 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139

With your health as our top priority, we will ensure that all necessary COVID-19 safety protocols are in place.

We look forward to seeing you at our Havana Nights themed gala this spring! This year's event will raise funds for the future of world-class pediatric surgical care at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, which includes a state-of-the-art surgical tower with advanced operating rooms and family-friendly spaces. Your support goes a long way in ensuring that every child has a chance at a healthy future. 

During the program, we will pay tribute to Vivian and Juan Carlos Mas, our 2021-2022 inductees into the Ambassador David M. Walters International Pediatric Hall of Fame.

Each year, the gala raises 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.

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.

Thank You to 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 the 2020 Virtual Diamond Ball.
