“Fête de Nuit á Versailles” Raises More than $700,000 for

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

 

 

Palm Beach, FL - The Palm Beach Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society today announced the success of the organization’s annual fundraising gala.  The black-tie dinner dance took place on Friday, March 7, 2008 at The Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan. 

 

Upon arrival, guests were greeted by masked servers in powdered wigs offering champagne and hors d’oeuvres.  As they entered the cocktail reception, stilt walkers dressed as Marie Antoinette floated around the room.  During the cocktail hour, guests bid on an array of wonderful silent auction items such as a beautiful necklace from Neiman Marcus, Best of Palm Beach dining package donated by Palm Beach Illustrated and an evening at Rao’s in New York. 

 

After cocktails, guests were heralded by trumpets to announce the opening of the ballroom doors.  The ballroom was a vision of hot pink roses and other pink accents. The Sarasota Ballet started the evening off by performing a traditional minuet. Following the performance, the Chairmen did a brief welcome speech and then turned the microphone over to two Honored Heroes to share their story about how leukemia had affected their lives. After the speeches were finished, guests grooved to the sounds of Private Stock.

           

Mr. & Mrs. Sean McGould and Mr. & Mrs. Jack Swan served as the Chairmen. Elizabeth Fago served as Chairman Emeritus and Julie Healey served as Honorary Chairman. 

 

Local sponsors of the Gala included Presenting Sponsor - Mr. & Mrs. Simon C. Fireman and Lighthouse Investment Partners, LLC;  Grand Benefactors - Mr. & Mrs. Lawrence J. De George, Mr. & Mrs. Sean McGould and Suntrust Private Wealth Management; Patrons -  The Rhoda and David Chase Family Foundation, Catalfumo Construction and Development, Ms. Elizabeth M. Fago, Mr. & Mrs. Mark Gussack, Mr. & Mrs. Harvey Gold, Mr. & Mrs. Richard Healey, Ms. Suzy Minkoff, Mr. & Mrs. Carl Shapiro and Sun Capital Advisors.

           

All proceeds from the annual gala benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the nation’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and to improving the quality of life of patients and their families.  For more information, contact
Darby Collins,

Campaign Director at (561) 775-9954.
