PALM BEACH -- Supporters of It Happened to Alexa Foundation gathered at  A.R.T., Worth Avenue’s new fine jewelry and art boutique, to toast the upcoming “Justice is Served” dinner benefit, to be held on Friday, March 26th at Mar-A-Lago.  Bill O’Reilly will be the guest speaker at the event.
 
At A.R.T., friends and committee members joined event chairman Judith Murat Grubman, for a reception to honor the Foundation’s chairmen, Stacey and Tom Branchini, and board member Sharon Ruggirello.  The reception also showcased the white gold diamond and opal cuff bracelet, valued at $35,000, which A.R.T. has donated to the event’s live auction. Reception guests had the opportunity to see the cuff as modeled by A.R.T representatives.
 
Ms. Grubman and A.R.T. owner Abby Patni, greeted the guests, who included Frances Scaife, Michele and Craig Millard, Anka Palitz, Linda Salandra-Dweck, Colleen Bain, Sharon and Alton O’Neil, and Betsy and Wally Turner.
 
As she introduced Tom Branchini, Ms. Grubman provided an overview of the Foundation and the March 26th dinner party, which will include a separate “Meet and Greet” with Mr. O’Reilly prior to the evening’s events, which will also include music and dancing.  In addition, guests will be given “Stimulus Packages,” special gift certificates worth up to $7,000 in goods and services.
 
The Justice Is Served dinner event is dedicated to the memory of Cathleen McFarlane-Ross, who chaired last year’s event for the Foundation.  Her husband, Walter Ross, is the honorary chair of the 2010 event.
 
Serving as national honorary chairman are Melania and. Donald J. Trump, with Patrick Park and Natalie Fernandez serving as honorary committee members.  Executive committee members include Eileen Cornacchia, Marie Hope Davis, Renee Morrison and Ruby Rinker. 
 
A longtime supporter of It Happened to Alexa Foundation, Mr. O’Reilly has used his show, “The O’Reilly Factor”, to encourage public awareness about prosecuting perpetrators of sexual abuse.  Joining Mr. O’Reilly at the event will be Wendy Murphy, an advisory board member of the Foundation, author, legal news analyst and professor at New England Law.  She is also a frequent contributor to Fox News, CBS and NBC.
 
“We are thrilled with the support Palm Beachers have shown to the Foundation,” noted Mrs. Grubman at the reception.  “Although its mission is very compelling, the dinner benefit at Mar-A-Lago will be a very enjoyable evening, with the opportunity to meet Bill O’Reilly and Wendy Murphy and a myriad selection of incredible gifts donated by a wide variety of sponsors.  We have been so impressed with the generosity that the Foundation inspires.”
 
It Happened to Alexa Foundation honors the courage of the Branchini’s daughter Alexa, who survived a traumatic rape by a stranger who broke into her college dormitory during the second week of her freshman year. The mission of the Foundation is to help support rape survivors through the trauma of the criminal trial, in the hopes that more survivors will go through with the prosecution in order to put sexual predators behind bars.  Established in 2003, the Foundation assists rape victims’ families with travel expenses during the trial process and is the only organization of its kind in the United States.  On average, when the Foundation’s support is present, there is an 82 percent conviction rate, with the national average for conviction in a rape trail at six percent.  To date, the Foundation has assisted 238 family members and 174 victims, including five males, 125 females and 44 children.  The Foundation’s results include 10 life sentences, with an average sentence of 12.5 years in prison.
 
More information on tickets to the March 26th event is available on-line at www.ithappenedtoalexa.org or by calling
1-877-77ALEXA toll-free.
