More than 425 guests followed the yellow brick road on Feb. 8 to the
2014 Cleveland Clinic Florida Ball, themed Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Thanks to the leadership of chairpersons Patrick Park and Geri and Frank Morrow, this year’s magical event raised an impressive $1.1 million to enhance and advance the premier medical programs and services offered at Cleveland Clinic Florida’s offices in West Palm Beach, Weston, Palm Beach Gardens and Parkland.  Their efforts were aided by vice-chairmen Diana Ecclestone, Jane and Bill Told and Robert and Suzanne Tomsich and international chairman, Donald Trump. The grand honorary chairwoman was Sydell L. Miller, who was recognized for her exceptional advocacy and support of the Cleveland Clinic.

            The Wizard of Oz-inspired theme was successfully carried through in all aspects of the event by designer Bruce Sutka, starting from the magnificent Mar-a-Lago Club lit up in emerald green to a colorful hot air balloon decorating the lawn. Guests entered the ballroom through a maze depicting scenes from the movie. The journey began with whirling tornados and ended at Oz with the exit flanked by the entire cast of characters – Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tinman, oh my!  Dinner and dancing was set to music by the unmatched talent of Soul Survivors.

            A special highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Sydell L. Miller Award. Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO of Cleveland Clinic, presented the award to Kathryn Vecellio for her loyal dedication to supporting the organization’s mission of bringing world-class care to its patients.

In addition to the evening’s festivities, two luxury items were auctioned to raise additional funds for Cleveland Clinic Florida. A handsome men’s watch by Ulysse Nardin, valued at $22,000 and a gorgeous ring and earring set by jewelry designer, Jean Schlumberger from Tiffany & Co. in Palm Beach, valued at $23,900.

            Guests at the reception included honorary chairmen, Hermé de Wyman Miro and Judith Murat Grubman; president of Cleveland Clinic Florida, Dr. Bernardo Fernandez; Peter Schuette, general manager of Saks Fifth Avenue, a corporate sponsor of the event; Dr. Viviane Connor, medical director of Cleveland Clinic West Palm Beach; Nancy and Gene Beard; Joseph and Suzanne Hickey; John Adler and Cindy Lewis; Raymond Perelman; Elizabeth Bowden; Lois Pope; Seymour andEvelyn Holtzman; past chairwomen Diann Scaravilli and KK Sullivan and Jamal Ghani, Cleveland Clinic Florida’s newly appointed chief executive administrative officer.
