18th Annual Hab-a-Hearts Luncheon

As the 227 guests entered the ballroom at Mar-a-Lago on February 9, 2009 for the 18th Annual Hab-a-Hearts Luncheon, they were dazzled by color… the tables featured “South Beach” inspired coral & white or blue & white table cloths with a white orchid centerpiece in a white glass vase.  Hanging on the chair was the Evelyn & Arthur signature coral goodie bags with blue tissue.  During the complimentary wine reception hosted by Diageo, guests proceeded to spend almost $25,000 on over 300 silent auction items. Throughout the event, Perfect 1864 Vodka provided free “Hab-a-Tinis” for all the guests.

Auctioneer and Committee Member Jim Accursio served as emcee and started the luncheon by introducing Pat Schweikart, Chair, and Linda Reichenstein, Co-Chair. Pat and Linda thanked the Committee Members for their hard work and all the guests for attending.  Kay Lang, who was unable to attend, was recognized as the 2009 Queen of Hearts.  While dining on filet mignon and enjoying informal modeling of fashion from the Shoppes of Plaza del Mar, Accursio raised $11,150 in a live auction that included brunch for four at Mar-a-Lago, a $1,500 gift certificate for VacationsToGo, a Burberry Leather Golf Luggage set, an engravable bottle of Johnny Walker Blue, and variety of other itemsl.

Other Committee Members include: Prudie Anderson, Dee Behnke, Amy Bernard, Donna Brown, Nancy Cashman, Madelyn Christopher, Laura Cianci, Joanne Driscoll, Judy Farmer, Ann Growney, Allison Rogers Haft, Beverly Keller, Jenifer Kelley, Helen Logothetis, Paula Michelson, Beverlee Miller, Craig Mitchell, Ann Opperthauser, Carol Pratt, Sheila Rinker, Dr. Marianne Toroyan, Marie Tynan, Marianne Vellis,
Sue Wagner, Barbara Whitford and Babbette Wolff.  

The luncheon netted over $82,000 for the Palm Beach Habilitation Center, which provides programs and services to more than 700 individuals with disabilities in Palm Beach County each year.  For more information about the Hab Center or the Hab-a-Hearts, please call Roxanne Jacobs, Director of Development, or e-mail
