Signature Grand's Vegas

A Las Vegas-themed extravaganza is planned for the 56th annual Holy Cross Hospital Auxiliary Gala on Saturday, March 31, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Signature Grand, 6900 State Road 84 in Davie, to benefit the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women's Center at Holy Cross HealthPlex.

Presented by the Holy Cross Auxiliary, Signature Grand's Vegas will feature an evening filled with dancing, live musical entertainment and fine dining with open bar and specialty drinks. The Signature Grand will be transformed into the famed city where what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

“We are proud once again this year to support the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women's Center with proceeds from the Gala,” said Michele Tapia, who along with her husband Dr. Raul Tapia, will co-chair the Gala. “Over the years we have raised nearly $12 million to support the community healthcare initiatives of Holy Cross Hospital.”

Grand hosts are Doreen and Keith Koenig, Drs. Gabriela Cora-Locatelli and Eduardo Locatelli, Monica and Mike Maroone and Sheri and Don Whittington.

Tickets are $200 per person. For more information, contact 954-229-8562 or e-mail Sponsorship and auction donation opportunities are available.
