2016 Blue Heart Gala




A Beautiful and Memorable Event


Organization for Family Improvement (OFI) held its first gala on New Year’s Eve 2016 at the West Palm Beach Marriott. The proceeds for this event will be used to fund the tutoring program in Belle Glade to keep youth connected with education and help high-risk families engage in their children’s education.




 Guests enjoyed great food, a silent auction, raffles, and an incredible dance performance by Webert Benoit and Natalia Manusha former US Latin Champion. There was also a brief program that featured the work and mission of OFI, while also awarding Connie Barattini for her great work at OFI. We also honored Frederick McCarthy and the McCarthy Family Foundation for their generous contribution and support to Organization for Family Improvement.




Thank you to all our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and guests that helped make the event a great success!
