London Called

…And the Coral Gables Community Foundation Answered

November 2019

The Coral Gables Community Foundation and its honorees celebrated with pomp and circumstance at London Calling, Windsor Wonderland, this year’s ball held at the Biltmore Hotel. In the spirit of the October ball’s theme, 400 of Miami’s philanthropic, social, civic and business influencers donned tiaras and sported tails in a nod to the monarchy. Several influential leaders of Coral Gables were honored, including: Jim & Susan Carr for the Philanthropy Award; Gene & Frances Sevilla-Sacasa for the Arts & Culture Award presented by Trish & Dan Bell; Dr. Paul George for the Education Award; and Andre Dawson for the Sports & Wellness Award. Co-chaired again by Sissy DeMaria-Koehne and Lauren Harrison, the black-tie fundraiser is a time-honored tradition and benefits the pivotal outreach efforts of the Foundation.
