American Cancer Society-South Palm Beach Unit Amore Gala

American Cancer Society-South Palm Beach Unit
raises over $90,000 at Amore Gala
 

BOCA RATON, Fla. – With support from individuals and the corporate
community, this year’s annual gala for the American Cancer Society-South
Palm Beach Unit raised more than $90,000 to benefit R.O.C.K. (Reaching Out
to Cancer Kids) programs that help children with cancer and their families.
Attracting nearly 250 guests, the elegant black-tie event was held recently at Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club in Boca Raton.

Co-chairs Karen Asher, owner of Karen Lynne Gallery, and Jamie Telchin, president of development for LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels, stood at the
entrance and personally welcomed guests to the Italian-themed gala, which
was a celebration of “love” for cancer survivors, adults and children who fight the disease every day, and those who have lost the battle.

“The event demonstrated ‘love” in its most basic form: giving to others,” Asher said. “Everyone knows someone who has had cancer or who has been personally touched by it. It is all around us and affects so many lives.”

During the evening, two young local survivors, Brianna Curry and Joseph “Jo Jo” Matuella, shared the power of their week at R.O.C.K. Camp, a place where they no longer felt alone or different. “They were able to be in the company of others like themselves and take part in fun activities,” Asher explained.

Poignant speeches by two mothers whose children have suffered from cancer, Dawn Curry and Suzanne Matuella, also tugged on the heart strings of guests.

“A portion of the monies raised – more than $20,000 – have been allocated specifically for R.O.C.K Camp,” Telchin noted. “The remaining proceeds will support R.O.C.K Families Weekend, R.O.C.K. College Scholarships, and go to work locally and in cancer research centers across the country.”

Local CBS 12 television anchor Liz Quirantes served as master of ceremonies, as guests dined, took to the dance floor prodded by the sounds of Bob Puccetti
and Danielle Fleischer from Taste Entertainment, as well as vocalist Lou Galterio. Silent and live auctions were other ingredients that contributed to a memorable and successful event.

Gala Sponsors were the Kazma Family Foundation, U.S. Installation Group, Inc., and Vista BMW of Pompano Beach. Table Sponsors included the Boca
Radiology Group, Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Wells Fargo, One Thousand Ocean, Luxuria, the Ampolsky Family, Stuart Benson, Mr. and Mrs. Irving
Gutlin, and Karen Lynne Asher.. Simply The Best magazine was the media sponsor.

Asher and Telchin expressed their appreciation to the generous supporters and to their Amore Gala Committee of volunteers. Committee members included
Maxine Adler, Tania Agran, Doreen Alrod, Gail Ampolsky, Howard Collier,
Terry Fedele, Sheila Gabel, Dorian Hayes, Cindy Heiser, Ann Helman, Brenda Hilsberg, Shari Jacobson, Marla Johnson, Adam and Lori Kula, Michelle Larkin, Dan Menscher, Judy Tiber Morris, Rona Petie, Roby Weimann Palchik,
Pamela Roulan, Stephen Siegal, Vicki Soble, Elissa Spiro, Mary Beth Tate,
and Dr. Juliette The.

The American Cancer Society is the nation’s premier, community-based,
volunteer health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer by preventing it, saving lives and diminishing suffering through research, education, advocacy
and service.
