Luxury Living Tampa Bay

Over 300 guests, dressed in their best Roaring 20’s attire, enjoyed a cocktail reception, a multi-course dinner, silent and live auctions, and lively entertainment from the Z Street Band. The Wanek Family was honored for their generous donations to help fund Type 1 Diabetes research. Concluding the evening was the JDRF’s signature Fund A Cure program, where the Watson and Sullivan Families courageously shared their struggles with this terrible disease. Over $700,000 was raised for diabetes research.
