CENTER FOR CREATIVE EDUCATION

THROWS OVER-THE-TOP
GREEK FRATERNITY PARTY


 

 

 

(West Palm Beach) – Jim Belushi would have been proud.  The scene at Pioneer Plaza Green on Saturday night was straight out of Animal House as nearly 300 guests rushed for the Center for Creative Education’s Over the Big Top event.  Set under the stars, the fraternity-inspired Over the Big Top Goes Greek event offered the perfect opportunity for guests to dress the part, wearing their sorority and fraternity letters and college colors – all to raise funds for the educational and artistic programming offered through CCE.

CCE is a not-for-profit educational organization that supports partnerships among schools, arts and cultural organizations, artists, community-based organizations, and human service providers.  CCE artists integrate the arts into academic curriculum and after school activities in Palm Beach County to help students learn in fun, creative ways.  CCE will open its Kluge Center for Creative Education in fall 2009 – allowing for on-site creative education in the arts for all ages.

Pledging to support CCE, guests were hazed with dinner and dancing the night away to Sultans of Swing, generously underwritten by the event’s Grand Sponsor, Dr. Daniel Kapp – as well as a surprise halftime performance by Jim Belushi and Dan Akroyd look-a-likes, The Blues Brothers, underwritten by the Private Client Group at National City.  Capturing the moment in a fun digital photo booth, guests created artistically silly pictures.  The jocks in the group jumped into inflatable Sumo wrestling suits and dueled in the ring.  Mixologists from Atlantico Rum created signature daiquiris for the evening and Palm Beach Proper Vodka had an ice luge.

Pausing from the fun, event chairmen Susie Dwinell, Blair Griffin and Keith Williams thanked guests, sponsors and supporters.  Raising additional fund for CCE programming, nominations were taken at five dollars per vote for the night’s Homecoming King and Queen.  Beau Breckenridge and Colleen Orrico were crowned and posed for photos in a vintage convertible from Chariots of Palm Beach.

“CCE is a ‘creative’ organization so we do our best to reflect this in everything we do, including our events,” said Tom Pilecki, executive director for CCE.  “We are grateful for the support and generosity of our chairs, committee and sponsors who made this event another memorable one.  With the opening of our new Kluge Center for Creative Education, it is critical that we keep the momentum going through the season.” 

Sponsors for the event were Atlantico Rum; Tricia Callahan Burt; Botanica Landscaping; Brown Distributing; Gina Borman; C. Orrico; Casa Ceramica; Chariots of Palm Beach; Vicki Halmos; Dr. Daniel Kapp; Emilio Pucci; Kenn Karakul;  Karyn and Kevin Lamb; Knapp Kitchens & More, LLC; Livingston Builders; M. Perry Design, Inc.; Mario Nievera Design Inc.; Michele and Craig Millard; Pam and Brad Miller; National City Private Client Group; Neiman Marcus, Palm Beach; Palm Beach Proper Vodka; Pistache French Bistro; Megan and Ryan Quinn; Mr. Tom Quick; Ralph Lauren, Bal Harbor; Spark PR & Events; and Wittman Building Group.

            Over the Big Top Goes Greek committee members were Katie Alexander, Whitney Baldwin, Beau Breckenridge, Jackie Breckenridge, Diane Buhler, Jan Coniglio, Gita Costa, Paige Crawford, Shannon Curley, Merrill Debbs, Aime Dunstan, David Ghysels, Charlie Kappler, Christina Keogh, Patrick Killian, Amy Lagae, Karen Lamb, Kevin Lamb, Helene Lorentzen, Mia Matthews, Ross Meltzer, Jordann Miller, Rick Moeser, Colleen Orrico, Diana Perry, Chad Renfro, Amy Royster, Missy Savage, Liza Smith, Alex Snyder, Rena Toppe, Scott Velozo and
