Health Council of South Florida presents Summer Social by Betty Alvarez

On August 27, Health Council of South Florida (HCSF) and Rodez Art Gallery in Cocowalk joined together for an evening of networking and cocktails to raise funds enabling HSF to carry on its mission in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. Proceeds from the events went towards the HCSF Scholarship Fund that has been established to address the healthcare professional shortage in our community. George Rodez’s art entitled “Flowers with Wine and Fruit” was up for bid via silent auction during the event in which HCSF will received 100% of the proceeds.

Guests had a wonderful time while enjoying the delicious food and beverages provided. Rodez Art Gallery provided the perfect venue for this event as everyone enjoyed the art displayed and some even purchased artwork that same evening.

Door raffle prizes included Jurlique Spa products, Paragon Movie tickets and cases of Dream Water. Premium Raffle tickets prizes included a one night stay at the Mayfair Hotel, one night at Key Largo Grande Resort, Jurlique Spa Treatments, dinner certificates to Fleming’s Steakhouse, Cheesecake Factory, Doraku Sushi, and Jaguar.
