Celebrating miracles, honoring the best and brightest

Celebrating miracles, honoring the best and brightest
Amanda Bates and Chet Royals with Louise and Ben Vickers

It was a night to celebrate the effort and hard work of our region’s best trauma team, not to mention, the work of the forces outside of our human strength and duty- the divine. The seventh annual black tie gala, A Night for Heroes, honors the hardworking men and women from Jacksonville Fire and Rescue, UF Health Trauma One and other local health care resources.
Due to the support of sponsors, the ability to purchase lifesaving equipment will increase and the housing program for families unable to afford a convenient place to stay while their loved ones are receiving care at UF Health Jacksonville will also be bolstered.
The 2014 patient honoree, Mr. Brett Parks, is a Navy sailor, husband and father of two who nearly lost his life when he intervened in a mugging and got shot in the abdomen. Over 370 staff members at UF Health Jacksonville had their hands on his amazing recovery- nicknaming him “The Miracle Man”. Visit http://anightforheroes.com to view excerpts of his triumphant story.
