Food For The Poor’s 2009
Fine Wines & Hidden Treasures -
The Best of Palm Beach


Food For The Poor’s 2008 Fine Wines & Hidden Treasures - The Best of Palm Beach gala have been used to transform Gordon’s Fishing Village in Bluefields, Jamaica, into a vibrant community brimming with hope and human dignity. Food For The Poor has finished the construction of 50 additional much-needed housing units and sanitation for the residents of the fishing village, a women’s fishery project and a school for 80 children.

“The Alsie Brown Early Childhood Institute was built in honor of Robert G. and Arlette Gordon,” said Angel Aloma, executive director of Food For The Poor. “For more than three years The Gordon’s have been passionate ambassadors for Food For The Poor’s Palm Beach gala, and compassionate advocates for the destitute, who have no voice.”     

Education is the beginning of the end of poverty. For more than 60 years, the Alsie Brown Early Childhood Institute has taught children ages 2 - 6 years old the basic learning blocks and behaviors that will help prepare the young students for Primary School. The structure was in deplorable condition and the administration was fearful that the building might collapse on the students.

When: January 29, 2009 at 6:30 p.m.
Where: The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach

What: The gala will begin with a wine tasting reception sponsored by Southern Wine and Spirits of South Florida, Dreyfus, Ashby and Company, and Transatlantic Wine and Spirits.

Who: The event is chaired by distinguished Palm Beach philanthropists - Robert G. and Arlette Gordon (Honorary Chairpersons), and Andres and Cathie Fanjul (Ball Chairpersons).

Charity benefiting from the event: Food For The Poor

Highlights: The finale of the inspiring Fine Wines & Hidden Treasures - Best of Palm Beach weekend will be the Philip Iglehart Cup polo match, Sunday, February 1, 2009 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach.
