One Thousand Ocean hosts
American Cancer Society VIP reception
RATON, Fla. – As a follow up to the
successful Amore Gala this spring that
raised more than $90,000 for R.O.C.K.
(Reaching Out to Cancer Kids) programs,
the co-chairs of the American Cancer
Society-South Palm Beach Unit’s annual
fundraiser recently hosted a VIP
thank-you reception. Held in a sprawling
penthouse at One Thousand Ocean in Boca
Raton, the cocktail party was for
sponsors, major donors and Gala
Gala co-chairs Karen Asher, owner of
Karen Lynne Gallery, and Jamie Telchin,
president of development for LXR Luxury
Resorts & Hotels, expressed their
heartfelt gratitude as guests enjoyed an
array of delectable hors d’oeuvres,
spirits and desserts while admiring the
spacious residence and its stunning
ocean, inlet and Intracoastal panoramas.
The evening’s entertainment featured
lively vocals by Ron Langel, whose
performance had guests singing along.
This was particularly true when one of
the guests, two-time Oscar-nominated
songwriter Carol Connors from Los
Angeles, joined Langel for several
R.O.C.K. programs include R.O.C.K Camp,
which provides children with the
opportunity to experience the fun and
adventure of a summer camp without
feeling different from their peers.
While in a safe environment, these
children enjoy traditional camp
activities from canoeing to campfires.
To be eligible to attend free of charge,
children must be between the ages of
7-16, have received or be in current
cancer treatment, and been referred by
their pediatric oncologists.
Other related programs include R.O.C.K
Families Weekend and R.O.C.K. College
Scholarships. Monies raised at the gala
and VIP reception will also be put to
work locally and in cancer research
centers across the country.
