Kravis Center Hosts
Third Annual Reception for
Helen K. Persson Endowment Society

More than 450 donors, guests, and business leaders attended the third annual event in honor of the Helen K. Persson Endowment Society, held on March 29 in the Kravis Center’s Gimelstob Ballroom, prior to an amazing concert by pianist André Watts.
Sponsored by Bernstein Global Wealth Management, the pre-concert luncheon opened with welcoming remarks from William A. Meyer, Chairman of the Kravis Center’s Board of Directors.
Calling the Endowment Society’s namesake a “shining example of generosity to her community,” Mr. Meyer hailed Mrs. Persson for her inspiring “service, leadership, and commitment to the long-term fiscal stability of the Kravis Center.”
The purpose of the Helen K. Persson Endowment Society is to build an endowment that will provide supplemental funding to help support the operation of the Kravis Center now and in the future. “Gifts to the endowment fund help the Center to keep ticket prices affordable, as well as reduce our dependency of annual fundraising, and allow us to continue our mission to enhance the quality of life in Palm Beach County,” he added.
Mr. Meyer acknowledged members of the Kravis Center’s
 Board of Directors and Life Trustees who were in attendance, including 
David Kosowsky, Jane Mitchell, Joseph Sanches and Lee Wolf. He also recognized the members of the Helen K. Persson Endowment Society who were at the reception and received a memento of appreciation.

Stephen Emma, Director, Wealth Management Group, Southeastern U.S., of Bernstein Global Wealth Management, spoke briefly to the crowd about “Effective Charitable Giving in Today’s Environment,” emphasizing that “reaching donors now is more important than ever.”

Also on hand from Bernstein Global Wealth Management was Evan C. Deoul, who was recently appointed Senior Managing Director at the firm.

Many of the reception attendees were subscribers to the Regional Arts Concert Series, who enjoyed a lecture by Programming Associate Sharon McDaniel prior to the “MUSIC at 2” concert by André Watts, who burst upon the music world at the age of 16 when Leonard Bernstein chose him to make his debut with the New York Philharmonic and remains, more than 45 years later, one of the most celebrated and beloved superstar pianists, acclaimed for his majesty, flair and musicality. The concert by André Watts was also sponsored by Bernstein Global Wealth Management.
