Hosting a gala to benefit homeless services in Palm Beach County has officially become a mayoral tradition.   Palm Beach County Mayor Mary Lou Berger just announced there will be a Mayor’s Ball in 2016, and like the preceding balls, it will benefit the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County. 

 

“If you don’t have a place to live you cannot start to put the rest of your life back together,” said Mayor Berger.  “You need to be in a place where you feel safe, that you can come home to everyday.  Then you feel like you have re-joined society and you have a purpose and you’re ready to move on,” Berger continued.

 

Mayor Berger says she remembers the shock she felt as a young person the first time she saw someone living on the street.  Berger says the image of that man stays with her as she and other county leaders look for ways to solve what she says is one of the community’s biggest issues.

 

The Mayor’s Ball began in 2014 when then Mayor Priscilla Taylor decided to hold an event to increase awareness about homelessness and raise funds to solve the issue inour community.  Those efforts were continued in 2015 when Commissioner Shelley Vana served as mayor.  Both mayors selected the Homeless Coalition as the fundraiser’s beneficiary.  Proceeds from the balls have helped to move 583 men, women and children into permanent housing and to employ a specialist to identify affordable housing across the county. 

 

“The Mayor’s Ball is not about one organization or one city” said Pamela Goodman,Homeless Coalition Board President and co-chair of the host committee.  “This event has helped fund programs at our partner agencies, like Adopt-A-Family, Goodwill, The Lord’s Place and the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center. The Mayor’s Ball benefits all people who are experiencing homelessness, in all the municipalities of Palm Beach County,” Goodman continued.

 

The theme of this year’s ball “Be Inspired” encourages guests to create change in our community, “I would love to have everybody have a place to live, have a job, be happy, have family,” Mayor Berger said. “It’s such a Norman Rockwell picture, but if we could create it just think of how great that would be,” said Berger.

 

The Mayor’s Ball 2016 is Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.  The black tie gala will include a cocktail reception and silent auction at 6PM, followed by dinner and dancing. Tickets are available for $250 through the Homeless Coalition’s website www.homelesscoalitionpbc.org

The Homeless Coalition

For over 25 years, the Homeless Coalition's purpose has been to generate awareness through advocacy, education and community outreach and to motivate a community-wide response to raise funding, resources, partners and involved citizens to end homelessness in Palm Beach County.
