Dear Miami Gala Guest,

I am very excited that you have chosen to join us for the evening of January 26th at our first ever Miami Miracle Gala for Scalpel At The Cross. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to invite you to a special reception at 6:00 p.m. with Dr. Ben Carson, our keynote speaker and distinguished guest. This more intimate gathering (located in the Coral Room of the Rusty Pelican) will overlap with the first half of a larger cocktail reception and market being hosted on the Vista Terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay.

You will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Carson as I moderate a Q&A with the guests, obtain a signed copy of his book Gifted Hands, and finish this special meet and greet occasion by taking a group photo together with him. Please arrive at 5:45 p.m. in advance of the reception as doors will close promptly at 6:00 p.m. To best accommodate everyone, it is important to confirm your attendance. Please respond by text or email (mail to: info@ whether you are able or unable to join.

Scalpel At The Cross is an orthopaedic ministry in the Amazon Jungle. We seek to be A Gift of Light, Hope and Surgery to the people of Peru and look forward to showing you what this action means on Friday night!


Peter A. Cole
President, Scalpel At The Cross
