BioMotion Foundation's Inaugural Gala
“A Celebration of Motion”
A Resounding Success in the Movement for
Bone and Joint Disorders

 

(Palm Beach, FL) – A moving evening of true elegance poignantly dubbed “A Celebration of Motion” proved to be The BioMotion Foundation's most successful fund raiser to date. Under the chairmanship of Palm Beach residents Pauline and George Michel and their committee consisting of the town's finest charity contenders, The Breakers, Palm Beach was the perfect setting for the Foundation's cocktail reception and black-tie gala dinner dance.

Funds raised fr om this special evening will benefit Pediatric Gait Analysis for children with Cerebral Palsy, The Samaritan Fund for those without the means for orthopaedic care and the newly retooled BioMotion Orthopaedic Research Lab housed in the West Palm Beach based Good Samaritan Medical Center.

“We want to thank our most coveted friends and supporters for being an integral part of a truly memorable evening,” stated W. Andrew Hodge, M.D., founder and chairman of The BioMotion Foundation. “Proceeds from the gala effort will enable us to provide the cr ucial funding necessary to improve mobility and quality of life through orthopaedic research, education and clinical excellence for individuals of all ages. It is a great honor to announce such key progress for the organization.”

Highlights of the evening featured a light hearted commentary by BioMotion friend and legendary Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee Gary Carter accompanied by Connecticut School of Broadcast founder and nationally r ecognized radio talk show host Dick Robinson.

Additional original entertainment was provided by the students of the Dreyfoos School of the Arts Dance Ensemble under the direction of the Dreyfoos School Dean of Dance, Amy Patton-Swan.

Accolades were given to the evening's generous Gala benefactors and supporters who included: Florence and Lawrence DeGeorge, Frank Russo of Stryker South Florida, Pauline and George Michel, The International Society of Palm Beach, President, Herme' de Wyman Miro, Julie and Amin Khoury, Encore Medical and Jeffrey Levitetz.

Gala Table Sponsors were Helen and Dan Colussy, Lachlan Reed, Ph.D., The Elebash Company, Norma and Simon Fireman, First Rehab, Good Samaritan Medical Center, Home Health Corporation of America, Palm Beach Home Therapy and Vassallo & Bilotta, P.A.

The honorary gala committee featured key civic and philanthropic leaders to include: Renate and Alexander Dreyfoos, Jr., Eva and Robert Forsyth, Helen and Harry Gray, Julie and Amin Khoury, Jeffrey Levitetz, Lachlan Reed, Ph.D., Helen Hood Reinhold, RADM. Philip Whitacre and Mrs. Peggy Young

Established in Boston in 1987 by Dr. W. Andrew Hodge, The BioMotion Foundation’s mission is to improve mobility and quality of life through orthopaedic research, education and clinical excellence for individuals of all ages. The Foundation moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, in 1992 when an greement was made with Good Samaritan Medical Center to develop and operate the new, comprehensive, orthopaedic research laboratory for the benefit of area surgeons, therapists and the local community. The laboratory's goal to provide staff or thopaedists and allied health professionals access to state-of-the-art equipment and a skilled technical staff to pursue research of the human musculoskeletal system and related medical issues is specially significant to the Palm Beach community.

The BioMotion Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not for profit research and education organization. With an emphasis on helping to create a world where longevity and mobility are improved by all, funding for research and services is provided by individual donors, educational grants, program grants, corporate sponsored research and foundation resear ch grants.

Those interested in attending The BioMotion Foundation's Orthopaedic Research Laboratory opening celebration scheduled for February 21, 2007 at Good Samaritan Medical Center, 1309 North Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach or to make a taxdeductible contribution please contact The BioMotion Foundation at (561) 650-6104 or log on to the website at www.biomotion.org.
