The Salvation Army’s Candlelight Soiree

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County held their annual black-tie, dinner/dance fundraiser by hosting a Candlelight Soiree on December 7, 2012.  This year’s event returned to The Breakers Hotel and Resort in Palm Beach, FL and was hosted in the Circle Room with the music group, The Soul Survivors.  This year’s soiree collected over $203,000 in contributions to support local Salvation Army programs in Palm Beach County; including transitional housing for the homeless, drop-in centers for youth, correctional services for Federal pre-release inmates, social service assistance including food, clothing and financial assistance, spiritual support through their many churches and whenever disaster strike, The Salvation Army mobile canteens provide support to the area. 

The Salvation Army was honored to have the following esteemed chairwomen leading the efforts for the Candlelight Soiree; Ruby Rinker, Chairwoman; The Honorable Beverly White Yeager, Honorary Chairwoman; Herme de Wyman Miro, International Honorary Chairwoman; and Kristina Anderson McPherson, Junior Chairwoman. 

During the event, recognition was given Kathryn and Leo Vecellio, whom have supported The Salvation Army in West Virginia for over fifty years and The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County for over twenty five years.  Mrs. Kathryn Vecellio graciously chaired the 22nd Annual Salvation Army Christmas Gala in December of 1993 and the Vecellio’s received the William Booth Society award in 2003 for their outstanding support of The Salvation Army’s mission. 

Also recognized during the soiree were Richard and Helen DeVos.  The DeVos family has supported The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County for the past eleven years.  Both, Richard and Helen DeVos, were Honorary Chairs and Grand Benefactors of The Salvation Army Christmas Gala in 2001 and have remained Grand Benefactors of the event ever since.  Richard and Helen DeVos received the William Booth Society Award in 2003 for their contributions and tireless support of programs provided by The Salvation Army in Palm Beach County.

The Salvation Army sincerely thanks our benefactors, friends and donors who are relentless in their support: The Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, Kathryn and Leo Vecellio, The R. Cathleen Cox McFarlane Charitable Foundation, Inc. and Walter and Helen Ross, The International Society of Palm Beach and Herme de Wyman Miro, Ruby S.
