Dr. Ofer Shustik, Medical Director of Coordinated Health West Palm Beach, and Honorary Chair of the American Cancer Society’s 2019 Celestial Gala, welcomed more than sixty guests at the VIP kick off reception, held recently at Admirals Cove in Jupiter.
The reception, which honored Chairs Shannon and Brad Ball, was a prelude to the Celestial Gala, to be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 on the lawn of the clubhouse at Admirals Cove.
“The American Cancer Society is doing such important work nationwide and right here in our community to fund cancer research, educate the public about prevention and provide access to quality care,” said Dr. Shustik, a concierge physician with 20 years of experience in primary care medicine. “As a primary care physician, I practice preventive care in the hopes that my patients are never afflicted by cancer. But we know there are many causes to cancer, and we all know someone who has been touched by this terrible disease. We are honored to be included in the efforts by this organization to decrease that number.”
The Celestial Gala, a one-of-a-kind ‘Night Under the Stars,’ will feature great food, dancing, a spectacular auction, and so much more. All proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society’s mission to find cures and fight back against cancer.
The 2019 Celestial Gala Chairs are Shannon and Brad Ball. The Gala Committee members include Cristina Amor, Carol Anderson, Stephanie Berzinski, Karla Carreiro, Joy Finer, Jessica Nicklos, Liz Sanford, Monica Santamaria, Kristina Viola, and Laura Wissa.
“We are grateful to Dr. Ofer Shustik and Coordinated Health West Palm Beach for hosting this wonderful kickoff event for the Celestial Gala,” said Brad Ball. “Thanks to his support and that of our committee, we are well on our way to an amazing Gala event in February. My wife, Shannon and I are incredibly passionate about this cause and we are very thankful to be part of the impact that the American Cancer Society has on finding cures for all kinds of cancer. Thanks in large part to the generosity of donors, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the U.S. in the past two decades.”
