25th Silver Anniversary "Sweetness and Laughter" Gala Celebration

Sunday, March 5, 2023 starting at 6:00pm


Dear Friends of the MFRF,

We are excited to share with you the success of Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation’s 25th Annual Gala held on Sunday, March 5 at Broken Sound Country Club. Over 200 people attended and we raised record funds to support our mission.

Our program and video was a powerful tribute to the beautiful, inspiring children and families, and spanned our mission of Genetic Screening, Nursing Education, and Research of Treatments and Cures.

Additionally, we were thrilled to recognize our “See The Light” honorees. A past recipient Dr. Terry Flotte, of the UMass College of Medicine, provided important updates on the gene therapy clinical trials. Our newest honoree Karen Grinzaid and JScreen showcased the 10-year partnership with MFRF for Genetic Screening.

The event was filled with excitement and many memorable moments. The live entertainment featured dancing to our high energy band Euphoria, and classic observational humor by comedian Bobby Collins. A proclamation from the State of Florida was presented in honor of the 25th anniversary. We also held an auction with incredible prizes and a 50/50 raffle, both of which generated substantial support towards our cause.
Enjoy the Gala pictures, video and program

We would like to thank everyone who has shared in our 25-year journey. Your unwavering support is what keeps us going, and we are extremely grateful. We hope you had a great time and will continue to support our cause in the future.
Our sincerest thanks and love!
