For the 3rd year in a row, we managed to come together with a common goal, and we are proud to announce that we raised $30,000 in stroke awareness!! As I said at the gala, we could not have done this without each and every one of you.
To those of you who came out and joined us at Tuscawilla, I hope that you all had a wonderful time and appreciate your time and support…I hope to see you at our gala every year to come!
To those of you who sent in a monetary donation, I can’t begin to tell you how each and every penny makes such a huge difference in our fundraising goals, and thank you for your contribution!
To those of you who donated products for our open bar, I’m certain I can speak on behalf of all our guests when I say that you helped to make the 3rd Annual Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Gala the amazing and fun event it was! Our dance floor was packed this year and it was wonderful seeing everyone having such a great time and celebrating life!
Additionally, our silent auction this year exceeded all years prior and I’m thrilled to say that we were able to auction off approximately $9,000 worth of amazing items!! Thank you to all of our product donators!
To Valerie Greene, our guest speaker, thank you for sharing your story, your positivity and inspiring us all to become better people!

It brings me so much joy to know that Scott's memory is living on, not only among his immediate family but within our extended family and community as well. Please click the link below to view pictures from the gala and send any others you may have.
The foundation presented the Neuro Critical Care Unit at Florida Hospital South with a check during a small dedication ceremony in honor of Scott's 35th birthday. The new neuro unit will be home to an educational area named after Scott in one of the family waiting rooms where families can watch videos recorded by doctors at Florida Hospital, read up to date medical journals about the latest technologies and surgeries for neuro patients and be comforted by answers while doctors and nurses work to save lives.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 2nd Annual Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Gala on July 16, 2011 at the Tuscawilla Country Club! With your help, participation and dedication, we managed to raise over $20,000 to support Stroke Awareness within our community and benefit the Neuro Critical Care Unit at Florida Hospital South!!! This is more than double than what we raised last year and we could not have done this without all of you!
A special thank you once again to all of our speakers and sponsors who helped make the gala an amazing night to remember for all!
The Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Foundation was created in honor and memory of our Scott who touched many, many people in his short, yet meaningful life. With your continued support of this cause, we are ensuring that his legacy will live on long beyond his years.
Once again, thank you all so much for your support! We hope that you all had a wonderful time!
