We seem to be best remembered for our “Greening of the Gables” Gala and initiative, which was established to raise funds to help the City replace the devastated tree canopy caused by the back-to-back Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. With the exception of that difficult year (2005), every year since our inception the Foundation has held an annual fund raiser—maybe you have volunteered for, or attended one, or more.
At our most recent 20th Anniversary (1991-2011) “Homecoming” Gala, we were grateful to have so many of our friends, former board members, and past chairs attend as we recognized and celebrated their generous contributions and enthusiastic participation in giving back to our community. Those 20 years have included lending a helping hand to establish major initiatives such as GranTran, PARKnership, the Coral Gables Museum, Cinemateque’s Coral Gables Art Cinema, gableshomepage.com, the Save The Alhambra Water Tower Campaign, and the Waterway Renaissance Project.
On this our twenty-first year, we are featuring a "21" (Blackjack) themed party with casino-style gambling for prizes. The Gala will be held once again at the Coral Gables Country Club, but this year we are moving it to Saturday evening (from Friday).
