PATRICK PARK HOSTS INTIMATE DINNER WITH FRIENDS
FOR EASTER SEALS

Chaired by John and Eddy Taylor, event raises $100,000
 for area children with special needs 

 

(JUPITER, FL)  Host Patrick Park and chairmen Eddy and John Taylor quietly raised $100,000 for Easter Seals recently with very little fanfare – except for the horns and guitars of the host’s signature mariachi band welcoming guests.  Park opened his Bears Club home to five couples — revisiting the successful “Dinner with Friends” benefit idea Taylor launched for Easter Seals just a year ago.
 
The original plan for “Dinner with Friends” was for a generous host to open their home for a dinner party with their close friends. The host underwrites the cost of the evening, and guests are made aware that their benefit “ticket” is a check for the children at Easter Seals.  When Taylor kicked off the series in her own home in 2009, Easter Seals benefited from a series of following events raising $100,000 for area children with special needs in school at Easter Seals’ West Palm Beach location.
 
“The guests attending our 2011 ‘Dinner with Friends’ loved the idea that their funds are directly benefiting area children with special needs,” said Taylor.  “And they also love the idea of a more intimate dinner in someone’s home.  Rather than another Gala benefit to add to their social season, this benefit becomes personal and meaningful.  And our gracious host created an unforgettable evening with incredible entertainment and a spectacular setting.  Both Easter Seals and I are forever grateful that Patrick Park so generously opened his home and underwrote this very special event!”
 
Guests at Park’s home for the 2011 benefit included: E. Llwyd Ecclestone, Dawn and Al Hoffman, Julie Khoury, Thomas C. Quick, Eddy and John Taylor and Paula and Nikita Zukov. Chris Quick and David Lambert also supported the event.
 
The small party enjoyed a musical evening filled with special performances by pianist David Crohan, Latin guitarist Tony Cruz, and tenor Francesco Valpa accompanied by pianist Don Cannarozzi.   The evening’s menu included lobster salad, cheese ravioli and veal tenderloin – topped off by a brandy tuille, coffee and finger desserts.  Guests left with beautiful favor bags courtesy of the Gardens Mall and Ferragamo.  The Ferragamo boutique is also hosting a private benefit in honor of Eddy Taylor and Dinner with Friends.
 
“Over the last 14 years, John and I have supported the special children at the Easter Seals Igoe-Amar Child Development Center in West Palm Beach,” said Taylor.  “We are very lucky to have been blessed with two beautiful and healthy daughters.  It has been our personal mission to give back to the children at Easter Seals who live with challenges such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and other developmental delays.  When friends like this recent group take time to learn more about the important work at Easter Seals, we all benefit.”
 
Easter Seals Igoe-Amar Child Development Center is the area’s only full-time center for children of ALL abilities.  Easter Seals helps children with disabling conditions due to birth, disease, accident or injury through pediatric speech, physical, occupational and behavioral therapies made available in a preschool setting.  These services help prepare children for success in school while affording parents an opportunity to continue their careers or education.
 
“Eddy has been an angel to Easter Seals,” said Marlo Massey, director of development for the organization.  “In fact, her unique and successful fundraising brought national attention just this past year when Eddy was named Easter Seals National Philanthropist of the Year.   We are so grateful that she and John choose to support our efforts.  Our programming and the children are fortunate beneficiaries.”
 
In addition to the recent dinner party, Easter Seals also hosted an online auction for friends who couldn’t attend the dinner, but wanted to support this special cause.  Boasting such amazing packages as a Café Chardonnay private dining experience, Napa Valley tasting and travel package, and a Tiffany & Co. necklace – auction proceeds brought event totals to $100,000
for Easter Seals.
 
Located at 213 S. Congress Avenue, the Igoe-Amar Center for Easter Seals Florida accommodates 100 children in the 23,000 square foot center. It has eight classrooms, four therapy rooms, outdoor play areas, a conference room and administrative offices. The Igoe-Amar Center is also home to the county's first Boundless Playground, a recreation area structured for children with special needs. 
 
To inquire about hosting a “Dinner with Friends” to benefit the children at Easter Seals, please reach Marlo Massey at 561.471.1688, ext. 124.  To learn more about the program offerings at Easter Seals or other ways to benefit the Center’s students, please visit www.fl.easterseals.com  or call
Ms. Massey to inquire about a tour.
