The second annual Ice Cream We Love at Bal Harbour Shops took place this past weekend and it was a sweet event.  Jackson Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Jackson Health System, has partnered with Bal Harbour Shops once again to host this fun-filled weekend to benefit patients in need at Holtz Children’s Hospital. If you missed the event, you can always make a donation to Holtz Childrens Hospital here.
