PALM BEACH, Fla. (April 15, 2010)
— Gucci celebrated the opening of its new store at 150 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach with a private cocktail reception, donating a portion of proceeds from items sold throughout the evening to the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American Red Cross. Over 200 American Red Cross supporters and fashion aficionados filled the new space, mingling over hors d’oeuvres, wine and pink raspberry cocktails as chic as Gucci’s 2010 Spring/Summer line. The evening raised much needed funding for the non-profit organization, which provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

The evening’s honorees were Denise Alexander, Therese Mersentes and Maria Power, three philanthropic women also known for their style. Others in attendance included Diana and Lowry Bell, Gale Brophy, Tiffany Cloutier, Robert and Arlette Gordon, Harriet Himmel, Stephen Mooney, Daniella and Alfredo Ortiz, Frank and B. Jaye Pilotte and Otta Schmitt. Fashion favorite Joan Vogel also attended the reception, dressed head to toe in vintage Gucci. Larry Casey, CEO of the American Red Cross-Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter and Chairman Michael Lampert socialized with guests and thanked them for their continued support. Guests left with signature leather tasseled key rings and leather GG card cases.

The city of Palm Beach holds great historical significance to Gucci. Gucci has had a local presence since 1951, when its original Palm Beach store first opened. At the time, the Palm Beach store was only the second Gucci store to open in the U.S., succeeding the opening of the New York 5th Avenue flagship location. Palm Beach is also uniquely linked to the brand this season, having served as the dramatic backdrop for the Gucci Spring/Summer 2010 worldwide advertising campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

The new 4,528 square foot store is located in the heart of Palm Beach at the 150 Worth Shopping Complex on Worth Avenue, alongside other luxurious boutiques and restaurants. To learn more, call the Palm Beach store at 561.655.6955 or visit www.gucci.com.
