Kravis Center Hosts Appreciation Luncheon f
or
Board of Directors,
Life Trustees &
Standing
Committee Members

 

As another star-studded season starts to wind down, the Kravis Center hosted its annual Appreciation Luncheon for members of its Board of Directors, Life Trustees and Standing Committees. More than 60 VIVs (Very Important Volunteers) attended a special luncheon on April 27 that was generously sponsored by Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein.

The distinguished attendees were welcomed by Kravis Board Chairman William A. Meyer, who thanked everyone for giving freely of their “time, talent and money” during a season in which the Center presented “a kaleidoscope of international artists and attractions from every discipline.”

Meyer announced that the Kravis Center was “on track to exceed our annual fundraising goal of $4.3 million, thanks to our wonderful annual supporters and the success of our three spectacular annual fundraising events: the Gala, Palm Beach Wine Auction and Reach
for the Stars
ballroom dance competition with gourmet food and
fine wines.” 

Additionally, according to Mr. Meyer, the Helen K. Persson Endowment Society continues to increase its membership through the receipt of letters of interest for legacy gifts from board members, donors, volunteers and staff.

Describing herself as “a real cheerleader for the Kravis Center,”
Ms. Silvers, the luncheon sponsor, praised the not-for-profit performing arts center for being “a cultural beacon in our community, both as an entertainment focal point and as an
economic catalyst.”

A key member of the organization’s Board of Directors who is Chair of the Employee Relations Committee and also serves on the Board’s Development Committee, Ms. Silvers hailed the Kravis Center for its “sound fiscal management, a caring and extremely dedicated staff, and a Board of Directors and committee members who harbor the best interests of the Center in mind as they deliberate decisions.”

Special gifts of appreciation were presented to the chairs of this season’s successful fundraising events, including Ted Mandes for the Palm Beach Wine Auction; Kristin Demeritt and Christine DiRocco, co-chairs of the Young Friends of the Kravis Center, who hosted the Reach for the Stars; and Ms. Silvers, who once again chaired the annual black tie Gala.

Other Committee chairs who were recognized at the Appreciation Luncheon were Judith B. Goodman (Ad Hoc Litigation Committee), Sidney A. Kohl (Audit Committee), Joseph M. Sanches (Building and Ground Committee), John E. Jenkins (Community Relations Committee), Michael J. Bracci (Corporate Partners Executive Committee), Jane M. Mitchell (Development Committee), Barbara Evans Golden (Education Committee), Garrison duP. Lickle (Finance Committee), Alec Flamm (Governance/Nominating Committee), Rory A. Brown (Investment Committee) and David I. Kosowsky (Strategic Planning Committee).

Following a delicious lunch of grilled asparagus and goat cheese salad, horseradish-crusted grouper, potato pancakes, baby zucchini, sunburst squash, French radish and chocolate lava cake, the guests were treated to a special performance by Italian-born acoustic guitarist Peppino D’Agostino.

The talented Mr. D’Agostino has previously performed at the Rinker Playhouse and Persson Hall; and in support of the Kravis Center’s various education initiatives, he also has led Master Classes providing music students with vital tools and tips to enhance their future performances.
