Earlier this month, UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital hosted a luncheon honoring all of the West Palm Beach-area partners and celebrating a record-breaking year of fundraising.

Organizations including IHOP, Panda Express, TD Charitable Foundation, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Walmart, Sam’s Club, RE/MAX, United Networks of Florida and OwlThon at Florida Atlantic University raised $1,320,963.46 this past year alone!

Miracle Families presented each partner with a plaque of recognition. At the end of the luncheon, each attendee left with materials to create a keychain with beads, which represent each step of one miracle kid’s journey at the hospital.
