Center for Creative Education

       (PALM BEACH) –Guests stepped into the magnificent backyard setting for the Center for Creative Education’s (CCE’s) Spring Luncheon and immediately stepped back in time to their School Daze.  A sold-out success, the March 25th luncheon’s theme was carried out in every detail -- from cafeteria-style seating and trays, to tin lunchboxes, hall pass place cards and apples-for-the-teacher centerpieces.

Honorary chairman Kenn Karakul again opened his magnificent Palm Beach home for the tenth annual event to raise funds for CCE’s programming, benefiting Palm Beach County students through in- and after-school programs.   

            The afternoon began with a garden reception before guests were called to order in the tented lunchroom by “principal” Tom Pilecki, CCE’s executive director. A special performance by Bak Middle School of the Arts Chorale Ensemble highlighted the event with their “School Daze” and “We’re All In This Together” songs.  Pilecki even administered the FAT Test (CCE’s own Florida Achievement Test) to query guests on what they learned about CCE at the event.

“Our artists work very hard with area teachers to incorporate creativity and fun into everyday learning,” said Pilecki, “so the ‘test’ gave us a chance for our guests to learn about us and experience our programming first hand.”

CCE is a not-for-profit educational organization that supports partnerships among schools, arts and cultural organizations, artists, community-based organizations, and human service providers in order to integrate the arts into academic curriculum and out-of-school activities in Palm Beach County.  

            “I want to extend a special thanks to our supporters and sponsors for this event,” said Pilecki.  “It is because of their generosity that we are able to celebrate this tenth annual luncheon and to attract nearly 300 supporters for a fundraiser during such challenging times.”

Grand corporate sponsor for the event was Frank Crystal & Company. Gold Table Sponsor was Dr. Daniel Kapp, Palm Beach Plastic Surgery.  Other “Friends of the Center” luncheon sponsors included: Laura Evans; Gunster – Attorneys at Law; Vicki Halmos; Thomas M. Kirchhoff Architects; Sam and Anita Michaels; Mario Nievera Design; MPerry Design; Pauline Pitt; Tropical Pest Management; Jean VanWaveren and Verdura at Betteridge Jewelers.
