Noche de Gala’s to benefit NICU

This year, Noche de Gala, The Sebastian Ferrero Foundation’s annual fundraising event, is focused on benefiting our smallest patients. Proceeds from this night of live music, dancing, entertainment and auctions on Oct. 24 will benefit our children’s hospital, with a specific focus on the expansion of our Neonatal ICU — the first place many babies call home. The event will be held at Besilu Stables in Micanopy, a 675-acre farm that is home to Besilu Collection. This year’s theme is Kaleidoscope and David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., UF senior vice president for health affairs and UF Health president, and his wife Donna Giles, Ph.D., UF College of Medicine psychiatry research professor, will serve as event chairs.
