Angelwood’s Color Our World Gala was held Aug. 18 at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach.
The event featured silent and live auctions, dinner and dancing, presentations about the nonprofit and more. The theme for the event, Color Our World, was chosen to emphasize the beauty that everyone brings into the world through their own unique gifts.
Remarks were made throughout the evening by Angelwood Executive Director Diane Tuttle and event co-chairs Mike and Natalie Rolewicz and Robin and Dan Wahby. The evening was highlighted by the live auction, which was colorfully emceed by state Sen. Aaron Bean. Items in the auction included a Color Our World original painting, a vintage Jaguars signed helmet, a lunch in Washington, D.C., with Congressman John Rutherford, a suite package for an upcoming Jaguars game, a stay at a luxury home in Arizona and club seats to a Florida State football game in September. An additional feature of the evening was a raffle for an IPPOLITA pendant necklace that was presented by Underwood Jewelers.
