Event scores big for NICU

In October, Noche de Gala, The Sebastian Ferrero Foundation’s annual fundraising event, raised money to benefit our youngest patients. Proceeds from the event will support our children’s hospital, with a specific focus on expansion of our Neonatal ICU — the first place many babies call home. With a “Kaleidoscope” theme, Noche de Gala featured live music, dancing, entertainment and auctions. Event co-chairs were spouses David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., UF senior vice president for health affairs and UF Health president, and Donna Giles, Ph.D., UF College of Medicine psychiatry research professor. In support of Noche de Gala, Lou Ferrigno (pictured, center) — best known for his title role in the CBS TV series “The Incredible Hulk” — toured the children’s hospital to visit with patients and their families, faculty and staff prior to the event.
