The colorful gala, held at the Orlando Museum of Art, auctioned artwork to fund traumatic brain injury research.
The Art of Medicine gala blended color with charity at the Orlando Museum of Art on Friday, Oct. 21.
Pieces of artwork were auctioned off to benefit the University of Florida Trauma's Concussion, and Sports Neuromedicine Program to further invest in brain injury research. One such painting was from gala honoree Dr. Cindy LaRoe, who suffered a brain injury during a competitive biking accident and later found comfort in painting. The night held live and silent auctions, an awards ceremony, performers clad in colorful costumes, and a buffet dinner. VIP guests enjoyed a performance from the Orlando Ballet during an an early cocktail reception.
