Florida Cycle of Discovery Donor Brunch

Cycle of Discovery Donor Recognition Brunch

In honor of its most generous supporters, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF) held its Cycle of Discovery Donor Recognition Brunch recently at La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach.

An elegant series of eight crystal sculptures portraying the scientific journey through the evolution of an idea were presented to those who have achieved a new giving level or who have made an initial major gift in the amount of $25,000 or more, as well as individuals who have joined the Heritage Society by making a planned gift.
