The evening was memorable, attracting philanthropists and business leaders from Palm Beach County and beyond. The hosts, Dr. Benjamin Carson and Dr. Dror Paley, were as captivating and impressive as the organizations they represent, telling remarkable stories of how they have helped change the lives of the children they serve.
