Congratulations to the 2015 Heart &
Star Award Dinner Honorees!
ALINA VILLASANTE – Champion of the Community Spirit Award
AMY HOLLUB – Champion of the Human Spirit
On Wednesday, March 18th at 6:30pm, the Cancer Support Community Greater Miami will host the 2015 Heart & Star Award Dinner at the Coral Gables Country Club. Alina Villasante and Amy Hollub will be honored at this prestigious signature event. More than 400 business, community, and social leaders throughout South Florida will come together for a festive and meaningful dinner at our organization’s most prestigious annual fundraiser.
Amy Hollub: The Champion of the Human Spirit Award is designed to honor a cancer survivor or support person. The recipient is to be a person who has become a beacon of light and hope for others who are faced with this diagnosis. We have chosen a star to symbolize this award.
Alina Villasante: The Champion of the Community Spirit Award is designed to honor those who have displayed a commitment to the greater Miami community through their own good works. The recipient must be an example of the best sense of “community” – one who joins and then unites others towards a clearer focus and a greater good. We have chosen a heart to symbolize this award.
The Heart & Star Award Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8th, at Coral Gables Country Club. Mistress of Ceremonies for the 2015 Heart & Star Award Dinner will once again be Emmy Award-winning CBS4 Anchor, Cynthia Demos. Raised in Miami, she joined the Station in 2007 and currently anchors the weekend newscasts on CBS4 News and reports as well.

Padron, Candy & Rodger Popkin, Sabrina Robinson, Aida & Joseph Roisman, Dara Salky, Debra Schottenstein, Pam Shapiro, Edie Spiegel, Tracey Spiegelman, Mia Villasante, Carole Wright and Pam Zakheim.
