57th Annual Palm Beach Heart Ball
“Gardens for the Heart” a Star-Studded Success
With Donald Trump and Tony Dovolani of
Dancing with the Stars



Palm Beach, Fla. (February 22, 2012) – More than 360 guests joined the American Heart Association for its 57th Annual Palm Beach Heart Ball on February 17 at The Mar-a-Lago Club. Paula Butler served the Chairman of the Gala, Patrick Park was Honorary Chairman and Burt Reynolds was Honorary Ambassador. More than $600,000 net was raised which will go directly to fighting heart disease and stroke.

Highlights of the evening included members of the Palm Beach Symphony performing during the cocktail reception, a warm greeting by Suzanne Boyd of CBS 12, and Tony Dovolani of TV’s Dancing with the Stars twirling on the dance floor with delighted auction winners to the music of Alex Donner and his Orchestra. During the action-packed live auction, Donald Trump caused quite a stir when he pledged $50,000 to the Association.

“It was a privilege and honor to support the American Heart Association by helping to raise more than $600,000 for education and research,” said Paula Butler, Chairman of the Gala. “My husband and I were happy to open our hearts to the Palm Beach Heart Ball and we look forward to the 2013 event. 

Guests enjoyed the entertainment and a delicious heart healthy dinner amidst opulent and fabulously floral décor by Bruce Sutka, inspired by the theme, “Gardens for the Heart,” including living centerpieces, remarkable ceiling high trees, fresh fruits and vegetables and twinkling lights. 

“It was a delight to have the opportunity to support heart health education and advocate for healthier lives,” said Patrick Park, Honorary Chairman. “The Association’s work and achievements would not be possible without the ongoing support from the patrons, honorary chairmen, committee members and honored guests who are dedicated to making a difference.”

Sponsors of the Gala included Paula and Robert Butler; Lawrence J. and Florence A. De George Charitable Trust; Patrick M. Park; The Rhoda and David Chase Family Foundation; The Richard and Helen Devos Foundation; Suzanne and Robert Tomsich; Janet and Mark Levy; Herme dé Wyman Miro; and Kathryn and Leo Vecellio.

The Exclusive Spirits Sponsor was BACARDI® Rum, The Luxury Grand Benefactor was Van Cleef & Arpels and the Media Sponsor was The Palm Beacher. Gift bag sponsors were: Black River Caviar, BLACCK Altima Connoisseur Club Black Card, Cornelia, Dilmah Tea, Florida Crystals, Hippocrates, Palm Beach Medical, Terra Creta and Van Cleef & Arpels.           

The American Heart Association strives to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent by 2020. In addition, the Association raises awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, with its Go Red For Women initiative, designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.  Kathryn Vecellio is the Founding Member of the Go Red for Women Founder’s Circle. For more information on the Go Red For Women initiative and for ways to help ensure heart disease and stroke are more widely recognized and treated, visit
