South Miami Rotarians have a new meeting location

Sandy B. Muller with Dr. Iris Torres and Carol Rosenau at CGWC meeting.

Gables Bike Day Launch party was held October 1st at Tarpon Bend. The affair served as a fundraiser with some terrific silent auction items and drew a nice crowd of supporters. Scheduled for October 20, this 3rd annual event promotes a safe and friendly environment for cyclists and pedestrians by advocating programs and events to educate the community. This year’s event promises to be more fun than ever as Miracle Mile will be closed for traffic and opened to walkers and bicyclists. Among the many enjoying the evening were John and Deborah Swain, Don Slesnick, Yolanda Woodbridge, Nicolas and Jodi Cabrera, Charles Sachs, Michael McMahon, and Carolina Rendeiro, to mention a few.

Finally, the Sandy B. Muller Breast Cancer Foundation’s Sandy Muller recently visited the Coral Gables Woman’s Club. Sandy, a breast cancer survivor, shared her story and her incentive to found a non profit with her co-founders, Linda Marracini, MD, and Beverly Sage. The Club was certainly moved by her outreach to help patients undergoing treatment with living expenses. In a very short time, they have already assisted 200 women. After her presentation, the Club presented her with a donation to support her efforts.

Until next time, keep making each day count.
