Nancy Marshall, president of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, which champions the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem, recently welcomed more than 200 community leaders and eco-fans at the nonprofit organization’s sixth annual River of Grass Gala.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the third annual Champion of the Everglades Awards to U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, community and environmental activist Bobbi Horwich, and the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

“The Marshall Foundation is proud to spotlight individuals and organizations that have made an outstanding contribution toward Everglades restoration over many years,” said Nancy Marshall. “Individually, each of our three Champions of the Everglades continue to inspire us for their extraordinary efforts on behalf of the River of Grass. But collectively, they have been instrumental in forging both popular and governmental support for reviving, restoring and preserving one of America’s greatest natural treasures.”

Senator Nelson’s award was presented to him by
John Marshall,
Board Chairman of the Marshall Foundation, while the nonprofit organization’s executive director Josette Kaufman presented the award for an organization to Leslie Lilly, CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.  Nancy Marshall and Palm Beach County Commissioner Jess Santamaria, the recipient of the award last year, gave the Champion of the Everglades Award for an individual to Bobbi Horwich.

Held at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach, the gala was chaired by longtime Marshall Foundation supporter Roberta Drey with Palm Beachers Jane Cummings, Joyce McLendon and Sydelle Meyer serving as Honorary Chairs. Local media personality Tim Byrd (The Byrdman) served as emcee for the gala that included entertainment from the Palm Beach Public Orchestral Strings under the direction of Andrew Matzkow, plus Jimmy Falzone & the Meercats.

About the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation:

Based in Palm Beach County, the Marshall Foundation champions the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem through science-based education and outreach programs.   Annually, nearly 11,000 elementary and high school students in Palm Beach County actively participate in the Marshall Foundation's various education programs. 

Founded in 1998, the nonprofit organization has in recent years awarded more than $400,000 in scholarships and internships, planted nearly 100,000 native Florida trees in wetland areas, and involved more than 5,000 volunteers in hands-on restoration projects.
