Greek Odyssey 

Taking cues from Mykonos, Athens, and Crete, friends of the Coral Gables Community Foundation broke records at the end of October dressed in an array of Greek-inspired costumes. There were togas, gods and goddesses, warriors, and plenty of Assyrtiko wine and Ouzo. More than 400 guests, including 120 who dined at Sea Grill in Merrick Park, helped the organization raise $400,000 to support the Foundation’s outreach programs. The event was co-chaired by Greek goddesses Sissy De Maria-Koehne and Lauren Harrison Brown. Among those feted were Brian Keeley for the Legacy Award, Nancy Hector for the Philanthropy Award, Lee Schrager for the Arts & Culture Award, and Jim & Deborah Davidson for the Community Award. The presenting sponsors were philanthropists Trish & Dan Bell; the matching gift sponsor was Coral Gables Trust (Jim & Deborah Davidson), and platinum sponsors included Ray Corral & Mosaicist, Baptist Health, the Mas Family, and Norma Jean Abraham and the Anthony R. Abraham Foundation.
