Easterseals South Florida’s 2017 Small Miracles Luncheon held at the Coral Gables Country Club on August 24, 2017, brought together more than 250 of Miami-Dade and Broward counties’ most engaged community leaders. The event raised more than $170,000 to support families struggling to overcome the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, autism and other disabilities in our community.
