Over 400 Palm Beach philanthropists representing all aspects of the '08/'09 charity season teamed up this weekend at the Mar-A-Lago Club for a gala effort to benefit the BioMotion's Institute for Mobility and Longevity. In conjunction with the ADT Championship, the event was held on the eve of the LPGA Season Finale in support of children and adults affected by bone and joint disorders. Called “A Celebration of Motion”, the second annual, black-tie event featured a live auction, cocktail reception and gala dinner dance attended by a roster of prominent LPGA sports figures including Florida's first lady of golf Michelle McGann.

     Venerable Palm Beach charity hostess Gale S. Brophy served as Gala Chairman.

Honorary Chairmen for the gala were Julie and Amin J. Khoury and Ali Rowe Nelson and Margarita Abrishami served as Co-Chairwomen. Dawn Fennessy and Sara Haryman were tapped as Junior Chairwomen.

      Gala host committee members who joined forces to support the black-tie affair included Hillary Musser-Bishop, Rose Marie Brancato, Ava Coleman, Tina Edington, Norma Fireman, Lauren Garrett, Barbara Katz, Barbara Levine, Kristin Magee, Elaine Miller, Jeff Miller, Larry Montello
and Mark Queenan.

Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee Gary Carter pitched in support of the gala evening and served
as the event's emcee.

      Grand benefactors for the gala benefit were Florence and Lawrence De George and Fryda and George Lindemann. International Society of Palm Beach President Herme' de Wyman Miro served as the Grand Patron.

      Additional sponsorship was provided by Harris Private Bank, The Gardens Court, Vive Magazine, Dr. Anita Mandal, M.D. Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Kanaris Fine Jewelery, The European Sleep Leader by Maison de la Literie, Med Tech Services and Mya Handmade Cigars.

The benefit and black-tie gala featured a luxury car collection and cigar bar emporium followed by dinner and dancing to the 13-piece Marcia Mitchell Band.

      “The Institute is incredibly thankful to our colleagues, former patients and donors who have generously given their invaluable time and financial support towards advancements in Orthopaedic research,” stated Dr. W. Andrew Hodge founder and chief medical officer of BioMotion's Institute for Mobility and Longevity.

      Among those enjoying the evening were: legendary fifties pop singer Connie Francis, Tony Ferretti, Donald Trump, Gary and Sandy Carter, Alla Kournikova, Gertrude Maxwell, retired General Alexander Haig and wife Patricia, Suzi Goldsmith, Nasser Kazeminy, Dr. Harry and Karen Orf, Lois Frankel, Peter and Jane Elebash, Raemali King, Donna Long, George Cloutier, Tiffany Spadafora, Mathieu Rosinsky, James and Johanna Redmer, Joyce McLendon, Admiral Philip Whitacre, Hayden Hosford, Dr. Donald and Bebe Warren, Jonathan Satter, Patty Myura, Jon and Moira Fiore, Joseph and Mary Ierardi and Robert and Eva Forsyth.

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

     Established in Boston in 1987 by Dr. W. Andrew Hodge, BioMotion's Institute for Mobility and Longevity's (IML) mission is to improve mobility and quality of life through orthopaedic research, education and clinical excellence for individuals of all ages. The IML moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, in 1992 when an agreement 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 was to provide staff orthopaedists 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 important to the Palm Beach community.

     In operation since mid-1992, the IML Orthopaedic Research Lab has established worldwide recognition for outstanding contributions in the areas of joint replacement, human motion analysis and sports biomechanics/injury prevention, and computer assisted surgery. The laboratory has enhanced its capacity for Pediatric Gait Analysis, a clinical service providing advanced biomechanical assessments and pre-surgical planning for children with severe musculoskeletal disorders. With community support, The IML hopes to increase the availability of this life changing analysis to children of need. Also, over the last two years, the Foundation has invested in neuroscience research with studies addressing spinal disability.

     The IML 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 research grants.

      Those interested in more information on the BioMotion's Institute for Mobility and Longevity or to make a tax-deductible contribution please contact The IML offices located in the Good Samaritan Medical Center, 1309 North Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach at (561) 650-6104 or log on to the website at
