Black Tie International:
Lady in Red Gala


Lois Pope - Lady in Red Gala

 

Lois Pope, Paul Pope and Ari Rifkin are Chairmen of the

17th Annual “Lady in Red” Gala

 

PALM BEACH, FL.- On Saturday, December 4, 2010, LIFE (Leaders In Furthering Education) will host the 17th annual "Lady in Red" Gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach.

This much anticipated start of the Palm Beach social season will begin at 6:30 pm with cocktails followed at 8:00 pm by dinner, dancing, and entertainment with the legendary Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr.. 
Lois Pope, Paul Pope and Ari Rifkin are Chairmen, while Liz and Jeff Bateman will serve as Co-chairmen.  Norma and Simon Fireman are Honorary Chairmen with Veronica and Alexis Mersentes
as Grand Honorees. 

 

One of America’s leading philanthropists, Mrs. Pope is the founder of the Lois Pope Life Foundation and Leaders In Furthering Education (LIFE).  LIFE raises funds in support of the Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation which seeks to commemorate the sacrifices and dedication of disabled American veterans from all branches of the Armed Services throughout America’s history by building the first National Memorial in Washington, DC honoring America's disabled veterans.  To date LIFE has raised more than $1.6 million to build the nation’s first and only permanent tribute to the three million living disabled American veterans, the countless who have since passed, and those who will
 come in the future. 

 

The Lois Pope Life Foundation and Leaders In Furthering Education (LIFE) also provide awards for medical research, scholarships, summer camp programs, humanitarian relief, the performing arts, and animal welfare. Projects include the University of Miami-based Lois Pope LIFE Center, the leading facility in the world for research into paralysis and neurological diseases; a life-saving clean water project in hurricane-ravaged Guatemala; an ambulance project for Magen David Adom, the “Israeli Red Cross;” scholarships for aspiring physicians attending the City College of New York and the Sudanese Genocide Response Team, receives a $50,000 annual grant from The Lois Pope Life Foundation to help young refugee women in the Sudan who have been displaced due to war migrate to America and find new lives in a free society. 

 

Philanthropist and businessman Paul David Pope, was born in New York and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida.  In addition to his work with LIFE, Pope has undertaken the organization of major events in the Italian-American community. He was chief sponsor of the New York Historical Society's exhibit "The Italians of New York: Five Centuries of Struggle and Achievement." In recognition of his efforts to promote Italian-American causes, he has received awards from the Consul General of Italy in New York, the Italian Apostolate of the Archdiocese of New York, the New York Conference of Italian American State Legislators, the Italian Welfare League, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, and the Order Sons of Italy in America. Pope has given his time, energy and support to such groups as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Kids in Distress, and Best Buddies, which is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with mental disabilities. He also has given his support to the University of Miami, the Miami Heart Institute, and the Miami City Ballet. He has received numerous awards from civic and charitable organizations for his philanthropic efforts.

 

His most recent project is a book entitled
 "The Deeds of My Fathers" that chronicles the lives of his grandfather, Generoso Pope, Sr. and his father, Generoso Pope, Jr., which includes the creation of the National Enquirer empire. 

 

Born and raised in Israel, Ms. Rifkin graduated from college and served in the Israeli army for five years, reaching the rank of Sergeant Major.  After her time in the army, she spent some time in Europe before coming to New York City where she lived for five years.  She then moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana where she worked in television advertising.  It was in Fort Wayne that Ms. Rifkin met her husband, Leonard, to whom she was married for 24 years until his untimely death three years ago.

 

In addition to her involvement with LIFE, Ms. Rifkin is involved with Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, the Palm Beach Opera Guild, The Center for Family Service, the Palm Beach Pops, and the Kravis Center.  She also serves on the board of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 

Tickets to the Lady in Red Gala are $600 per person and $500 per person for junior tickets. 

All proceeds from the evening will benefit
the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial.
