Best hat that wasn’t a hat: Heather Dockweiler  added hair extensions and fashioned them into a top hat for Hats in the Garden.


Best philanthropist who can also throw a 99 mph fastball: Red Sox star and former FGCU standout Chris Sale has kept ties to Southwest Florida, giving his time and money to organizations like Laces for Love and Baby Basics of Collier County.


Best celebrity performance: Diana Ross performed at the American Cancer Society’s Bucket List Bash. And here we thought it’d be hard to top Andrea Bocelli’s performance there last year.
