Black Tie International:
 Opportunity, Inc. History Exhibit and Reception
Laura Mann & Dr. Thomas Mann

Laura & Dr. Thomas Mann



Opportunity, Inc. welcomed its special friends and donors to a cocktail reception and history exhibit on Tuesday, January 21st, Opportunity, Inc. day as proclaimed by the City of West Palm Beach at The Historical Society of Palm Beach to celebrate its 75th Anniversary, thank our friends and share the history of the organization since it was founded in Palm Beach in 1939. On display was the original shell pieces designed and built by the early founders, a business built to create income for at risk families in the community.

The reception was underwritten by Waverly and Jack Shirreffs along with Laura and Tom Mann.  Pete Nicoletti, Board Director welcomed our guests and spoke of his passion for the work of Opportunity and our collective desire expand the organization. Harvey Oyer, Palm Beach’s leading historian, delivered the feature address by offering the group a view of Palm Beach history including the significance of Opportunity, Inc., and the legacy of excellence, vision and longevity of the organization.

The landmark Historical Museum was filled with cheer and appreciation for the work of Opportunity and its history.  Our guests joined Opportunity to pay tribute to the visionary founders. Amongst our guests were second and third generation supporters, Lucy Anthony, Laura Johnston and their daughters. PNC Bank and Meredith Michener are the proud sponsors of the 75th Anniversary Celebration season. 

Opportunity Early Learning Center is a top ranked, Five Star educational facility delivering programs designed to “break the cycle” of poverty by offering early childhood educational programming and parent support to low income families, single parent families, and families in crisis.

The exhibit will be on display through February 28th.
