St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Receives Critical Funding From Gala Event

M2B Funding Corp, Apollo Management and Integrum Worldwide teamed up to raise $367,522 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Doral during an invite-only event at Gala Miami earlier this month. It was the second year the gala raised money for the hospital, with donations nearly doubled from the previous year.

The exclusive, star-studded affair featured exotic cars from Lamborghini Miami lining the entryway as guests arrived to enjoy Champagne Lallier, Belvedere Vodka cocktails and an endless sushi bar from NOBU. Notable guests included Valeria Orsini and Nina Serebrova, who were treated to an electric opening set by DJ Esther Anaya, followed by a set from headliner DJ Vice. In between those acts, attendees enjoyed an exceptional guest performance by acclaimed record producer and artist Scott Storch on the keys.

“In our first year, we quickly hit our lofty goal of $200,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” Daniel Kordash says, president of M2B Funding Corp. “I’m incredibly proud to say, this year, we have far exceeded our original expectations and raised nearly $400,000 as a result of our incredible partners and strong community that showed up in spades. Together with Integrum Worldwide, we are dedicated to using our success to help make a difference for others.”

In addition to primary hosts M2B Funding Corp., Apollo Management Group and Integrum Worldwide, critical sponsors for the event included Gala Miami, Chalk Experiences, Lamborghini Miami, Ride2Revive, Wave Marine Group, Wrist Aficionado, The Carroll Group, Cycurion, Endexx, MetroSpaces and Ce Soir.

“Being able to work with our partners to raise money for St. Jude for a second year in a row is such a blessing; especially doing so in a beautiful environment, surrounded by such a great crowd, fantastic sponsors, and best of all, friends,” Claude Zdanow says, president of Integrum Worldwide.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
