The 75th Anniversary Opportunity Luncheon

 December 11, 2013

 The Beach Club, 755 N. County Road, Palm Beach


Opportunity, Inc. celebrated its 75th Anniversary at a festive Holiday Luncheon & Boutique by honoring our supporters on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013 at The Beach Club, in Palm Beach.  Granddaughters Lucy Anthony and Laura Johnstonís of the original founder, chaired and welcomed our guests and friends with a warm touching welcome as they spoke of their grandmothers dream of helping those in need in our community and their continuation of this dream.


The ocean-front ballroom was filled with holiday chair as we heard from Patricia Jones, a parent who has benefited from the work of Opportunity.  The room was still with compassion and pride as Patricia addressed the gathering to pay tribute to those who support Opportunity while she told her story of her journey with Opportunity, and the role our staff has played in her life. Amongst our guests was President Terry Fox, Meredith Michener (Grand Benefactor) and PNC Bank (Adopt A Charity Benefactor).  With the guests numbering over 250, everyone was pleased to be associated with such a great legacy and tradition of excellence.


The Rosarian Academy and The Palm Beach Day Academy school choruses performed holiday songs which culminated with a rendition from the children at Opportunity.


Opportunity, Inc. of Palm Beach County offers low cost, quality preschool child care, educational programming and parent support to low income families, single parent families, and families in crisis designed to break the cycle of poverty.  Accredited by the National Accreditation Commission, recognized as a Five Star Gold Seal School of Excellence by the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Opportunity Early Childhood Center programs are made possible through the generosity of donors and foundations who believe in the spirit of hope.
