The Diamond Ball ranks among the top fundraisers in Florida and is recognized by society’s elite as the launch of the South Florida gala season. Our annual signature gala and South Florida’s grandest charity event pays tribute to the Hospital’s grateful patients, world-class physicians and generous philanthropists.
This year's event, Diamond Ball: Diamonds Are Forever, raised more than $3 million including announced gifts, for the children and families of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, formerly Miami Children’s Hospital, in a Diamonds Are Forever-themed black-tie affair that brought together more than 800 guests to the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. Global music superstar, Armando Christian Pérez “Pitbull”, was recognized for his contribution to the community and his continued support to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital as celebrity Ambassador to Together For The Children, The Campaign for Miami Children’s. Armando was inducted into the Ambassador David M. Walters International Pediatric Hall of Fame for exemplifying his passion for helping children throughout the world. “Being honored in my hometown for supporting the children and families at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital means the world to me,” Armando said. “This is a tremendous honor. It’s an amazing feeling to have the opportunity to make a difference in our community, and most importantly in the lives of children everywhere”.
