Put on your dressy denim and join guests at the popular Diamonds & Denim Gala, held the fourth Thursday evening in September at the Florida Strawberry Festival Grimes Family Agricultural Center. Each year more than 600 people attend this benefit for South Florida Baptist Hospital. Since its inception in 1997, Diamonds & Denim has raised more than $1,000,000.00 for the hospital.
Guests enjoy a catered dinner with six food stations, music, and open seating. A large Silent Auction and fun filled Live Auction assist in raising funds. There is also a chance to win a diamond ring donated by area jewelers and to participate in a 50/50 raffle. There are 5 sponsorship levels ranging from our Pearl sponsorship at $250 to our Diamond sponsorship at $5,000. Tickets are $75 per person with advance reservations required. Donations for the silent and live auction are welcomed. A committee of community volunteers help plan and coordinate this premier event.
