Call to Heart Ball: Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, Manalapan — Jan. 26

Caridad Center’s annual gala was grand in celebration and generous in display with more than 400 guests raising about $500,000 to fund medical care for the underserved. A record-breaking event, it more than doubled net proceeds from two years ago.  ‘The compassion and generosity of our guests was overwhelming,’ said Connie Berry, who co-founded the center 30 years ago. CEO Laura Kallus agreed, saying, ‘Without you, all of this would not be possible.’  ABOVE: (l-r) Christine and Bob Stiller accept an honor from event chair Sanjiv Sharma.
