The Miriam Hospital hosted more than 450 donors, friends, and supporters at their 2023 Gala and Auction, which took place Saturday, April 29, at the WaterFire Arts Center in Providence.

Inspired by the passion and creativity of gala chairs, CeCe Bazar Aparo and Michael J. Sweeney, and powered by the efforts of their fabulous sponsorship and event committees, the venue was transformed into one of America’s most unique and premier destinations for one night only. The “Welcome to South Beach” themed soiree featured choreographed dance performances, high-energy party music, spot-on beach and nightlife décor, and a delicious assortment of foods and drinks.

But the true star of the show—and what took center stage all night long—was the cause itself: Raising much-needed funds to help support and advance the world-class, compassionate care the hospital delivers to the community it serves. In total, $930,000 was raised.
