            PALM BEACH, FL. (November 18, 2010) – More than 220 Rosarian Academy parents, board members and supporters – all clad in chic island-themed attire - attended the school’s 32nd Annual Auction and Ball called “Party in Paradise – Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude.” The Jimmy Buffett-inspired event, held Nov. 13 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, featured dinner, dancing, and silent and live auctions that sold more than 1,200 coveted items. Nancy Becerra and Donna White served as the co-chairs for this year’s annual fundraiser, and Jack and Cathy Flagg were the honorary chairs.

“This was one of the most successful auctions in the school’s history, which speaks volumes about the overwhelming support and commitment we have from the community,” said Virginia Devine, principal of Rosarian Academy. “I always look forward to this event – it’s a highlight of my year, but this one was especially important to me in my new role as principal.”

While enjoying cheeseburgers in paradise and mango margaritas, guests bid on silent auction items, including a "Night at the Stock" sleepover for 10 in Rosarian’s Lester N. Stockard Athletic Building and a Vespa Gran Turismo scooter, which parents Sean and Francesca Kennedy took home for $2,500. 

The excitement continued with a high-energy, live auction led by Jim Arrigo. The largest of the 20 items up for bid was a Global Electric Motorcar (GEM) donated by the Arrigo family. Mark and Mary Frietas were the highest bidders. Other winning bidders included prospective parents Eliezer and Shafali Hernandez who won luxury box seat tickets to the sold-out Lady Gaga concert. In step with this year’s theme, parents Deon and Charline Curtis won a personalized autographed CD by Jimmy Buffett. Keller Lanahan was the evening’s lucky “Golden Ticket” raffle winner, giving her the opportunity to pick any of the live auction items up for bid. She went home with the one-week ski vacation in Deer Valley, Utah.

Guests included Principal Virginia Devine; Laz and Nancy Bacerra; Wil and Donna White; Jack and Cathy Flagg; past board chair Mark Cook and his wife, Paula; Kelly and Danielle Hickox Moore; past board chair Margi Picotte and her husband, Michael; board members Don and Marla Fountain; Jason and Nicole Guari; John and Celeste Cassidy; Shaun and Jessica McGruder; Michael and Diana Perry; John and Carol Fulton; Beau and Jackie Breckenridge; and Tom and Keller Lanahan.

The 32nd Annual Rosarian Academy Auction and Ball committee chairs included Missy Agnello, Stephanie Agnew, Adriana Arrigunaga, Margaret Arrigo, Silvia Azqueta,  Celeste Cassidy, Elizabeth Chapman, Michele Cianfrone, Maria Elena Coffield, Paula Cook, Hollie Elhilow, Marla Fountain, Michelle Goldstein, Nicole Guari, Evelyn Hopkins, Eleanor Jones, Yianna Kaplanidis, Karen Kirk, Cecilia Lim, Elaine Marro, Jessica McGruder, Jennifer Michael Molina,  Janet Murphy, Melanie Nielsen, Joan O’Connell, Joanne O’Connor,  Cindy Osborne, Cecilia Perez-Vargas, Amy Quattlebaum, Guy Quattlebaum,  Julie Quattlebaum, Elizabeth Rahm, Kathy Rapp, Cecelia Skivington, Valerie Staggs, Jane Stirm, Sabra van der Poel, Liz Yavinsky,  Margarita Zindel and Mary Carmen Zindel.

The Auction and Ball is Rosarian Academy’s signature event and has served as the school’s main fundraiser for more than 30 years. All proceeds will benefit scholarship, curriculum and facilities development funds. PNC Wealth Management was the major sponsor. Other sponsors included Arrigo Dodge Chrysler Jeep; Birks and MAYORS Jewelers; Cassidy Air Conditioning; Jones, Foster, Johnston & Stubbs, PA; Manuel V. Mendez, MD; Neiman Marcus; Palm Beach Cancer Institute; and Wachovia/ Wells Fargo Company.
