THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION HOSTS 12TH ANNUAL FOREVERGLADES BENEFIT HIGHLIGHTING THE NEED TO GIVE AS WELL AS ACT 

Featuring CBS This Morning’s Norah O’Donnell as host, comedy by Tom Papa, conservation photography by Mac Stone and musical performance by Roger Daltrey
of The Who

 

 

Palm Beach, FL (February 23, 2017)  – With a colorful theme and line-up to keep with the vibrant palette of the Everglades, the 12th Annual ForEverglades Benefit took place on Saturday, February 18th at The Breakers Palm Beach. The sold-out event featured television journalist and co-host of CBS This Morning Norah O’Donnell alongside actor/comedian Tom Papa, award-winning conservation photographer Mac Stone and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Roger Daltrey of The Who. 

The evening commenced with cocktails for the colorful clad guests who were encouraged to wear clothing fitting of the Color Me In theme, followed by a sit down dinner in the Ponce de Leon Ballroom where long tables were set with festive décor. Once seated, The Everglades Foundation Board Chairman Marshall Field V spoke about the current legislation to expedite a project to send Lake Okeechobee water south, where it can be cleaned and sent to the Everglades and Florida Bay, rather than destroying Florida’s coasts by sending it east and west.

After dinner, actor and comedian Tom Papa entertained the crowd with comedic commentary that lit up the room. Mac Stone gave guests a riveting tour of the Everglades through his camera lens while relaying his experiences of living and working in the Everglades watershed that ended with a standing ovation for the crowd of over 800 Foundation supporters. 

Following Stone, Board of Directors member and the Foundation’s co-founder Paul Tudor Jones and CEO Eric Eikenberg took to the stage and praised state legislators who have backed the concept of building a southern reservoir. Together Jones and Eikenberg led a call-to-action mission by encouraging guests to contact Florida Governor Rick Scott and legislators to encourage them to fight for this reservoir.

Jones went on to say, “We hold a red, white and blue American treasure in our hands. This is not a red or blue issue. This is a unifying issue and a rally cry to each and every one of us. It is the water supply for over 8 million Floridians and millions of tourists. It is an economic engine of Florida and the home of 77 threatened or endangered species.”

Jones then welcomed Miss Florida to the stage to explain how to pledge on mobile devices, and lead the call to action by texting the word FIGHT to 40649. Rounding out the night, ForEverglades Chair Mike Ramos announced musical headliner Roger Daltrey who took the state with his band singing a full concert list of songs, featuring countless top hits including "My Generation”, “Pinball Wizard,” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” The crowd then went wild as Daltrey announced a surprise visit from Jimmy Buffett, where together they sang a rendition of the classic “Stand By Me.” 

Chairs for the 12th Annual ForEverglades Benefit include Mary Barley, Claudia and Carlos de la Cruz, Jr., Fiona and Stanley Druckenmiller, Eva and Glenn Dubin, Jamee and Marshall Field V, Béryl Lacoste Hamilton and Rex Hamilton, Fenia and Carl Hiaasen, Sonia and Paul Tudor Jones II, Eaddo and Peter Kiernan, Elaine and Ken Langone, Kathy and Paul Leone, Michele Henry and Garrison duP. Lickle, Mary Morse, Thalia and Tommy Mottola, Barbara and Jack Nicklaus, Ashley and Mike Ramos, Lia Reed and Tony Bohannon, Alita and Nathaniel Reed, Diana Barrett and Robert Vila, Toni and Andrew Wilshire and Beau Wrigley.

Co-Chairs include: Brooks Bishop, Susan and Mark F. Dalton, Jennifer and Joseph Duke, Tucker Frederickson, Mercedes and Steve Gotwald, Judy and John Keller, Judy and Jarett Kling, Alice and Lorne Michaels, and Bill Davenport and Bruce Wiltsie and Committee members include: Nancy and David Auth, Kane Baker, Michele Borislow, Katie Carpenter, Revell Carpenter Schulte, Dashiell Carpenter Schulte, Chris Chase, Heidi Cox, Syndey Davis, Mia Celano and Skip Dunn, Ellin Goetz and Michael Watkins, Nancy Goodes, Gina and Scott Gordon, Danielle H.

Ross, Lauriston and Richard Segerson, Linda and Jared Soper, Susie and Stanley Trotman, Peter Vasconcelos, Kristen and Chris Vila, Jodi and Rick Wentley, and Paula and Paul Wittmann.

The ForEverglades Benefit raises funds annually to support scientifically sound, achievable solutions to restore and protect the fragile Everglades ecosystem that provides fresh water for nearly 8 million Floridians and millions of visitors. The Everglades Foundation board of directors supports all of the Foundation’s administrative and fundraising expenses, allowing 100 percent of the funds raised at the benefit to directly support these programs
