The Diamond Angels of Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation is a volunteer membership support group formed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2004. The Diamond Angels serve as advocates for Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital to support its mission - to provide safe, quality, cost-effective, patient and family-centered care regardless of one's ability to pay, with the goal of improving the health of the community it serves.
The Diamond Angels premier event is the always spectacular Fairy Tale Ball. Since the Inaugural Ball in the Fall of 2004, the Diamond Angels have hosted seven events that have raised over $1 million dollars for the Pediatric Oncology Unit and $1 million dollars towards the new Wasie Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and over another million dollars for various other programs including building the free standing hospital that opened in 2011.
The Fairy Tale Ball is one of South Florida’s most prestigious events and has become a tremendous success due in part to its title sponsor, The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa. The evening boasts an outstanding auction with world class vacations and one of a kind experiences, and a not to be missed classic rock concert! In past years, the concert has featured the talents of Mickey Thomas of Starship, Greg Rolie of Santana, Steve Augeri of Journey, Grand Funk Railroad’s Mark Farner, Wally Palmar of the Romantics to name a few. “Guests always have a really good time at this event, it is fun, young and fresh – plus it’s not black tie so everyone can let their hair down,” states Sharon Truske, Diamond Angels Founding Vice President.
