It was an evening to remember for the River Garden Foundation, as the organization played host to a celebratory crowd that helped usher in its 30th Anniversary Gala. The ballroom at the Sawgrass Marriott played host to ‘A Time to Shine’, Sat., Dec. 10, where guests paid tribute to the almost 77 years of progress that has made River Garden one of the most sought-after facilities in the country.

Thanks to committed supporters and gala Co-Chairs Sue Eaglstein, Debbie Parker, Debra Setzer, Jeanine Rogozinski and Stacie Wilf, River Garden continues to deliver superior service and care to seniors in our community. During this special evening, a tribute was paid to Kathy Osterer, the former chief development officer of the River Garden for more than 23 years. A friend to many, she not only volunteered for the first River Garden Gala in 1993, but played an integral role in planning and implementing all the subsequent events for the Foundation and organization.

The night wouldn’t have been complete without the special thanks and gratitude for all the committee members, alongside recognition for the new chief development officer, Christina Levine and her staff of Michelle Branly and Gabrielle Margol, who helped with their planning expertise and collaboration for this year’s special anniversary.
