Opening Night Private Preview Party Benefits the Historical Society of Palm Beach County


(Palm Beach, FL)— The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show hosted over 6,000 guests, breaking previous Opening Night attendance records, at the 6th annual Opening Night Private Preview Party, Friday, February 13, which benefited the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. Funds raised from the evening, which included a $25,000 donation from the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, will benefit educational programming at the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum located within the historic 1916 Courthouse in downtown West Palm Beach.


“The turnout for the evening was fabulous,” said Kae Jonsons, director of development for the Historical Society of Palm Beach County.  “Our guests look forward to this event each year and are always astonished by the quality of items offered at the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show.”


The Historical Society of Palm Beach County is a 69-year-old non-profit organization whose mission is to collect, preserve and share the history of Palm Beach County. In March 2008, the Society opened the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum.  Through a partnership with the School District of Palm Beach County, the Society creates and implements history programming for approximately 25,000 local students annually. 


“We were honored to once again partner with the Historical Society of Palm Beach County for a very successful Opening Night event,” said Scott Diament, co-owner and COO of the Palm Beach Show Group.  “The Historical Society makes history accessible, interesting and meaningful to the Palm Beach community.  As an arts organization dedicated to giving back to the community, this is certainly a mission we believe in.”


Guests at the Opening Night event enjoyed a champagne reception, light hors d’oeurves, cocktails, live entertainment and the exclusive opportunity to view and purchase from the remarkable collections of more than 200 of the world’s finest exhibitors before the show opened to the public the following day.  Showcased collections included fine art, sculpture, furniture, silver, textiles, bronze, antique and fine jewelry, objets d’art, porcelain, ceramics and pottery, watches, clocks, Asian art and antiques, oriental carpets, art glass and 20th century design.


Exhibitors at the event reported strong opening night sales including a Tiffany silver flatware service set from Spencer Marks Ltd. a large natural stone fossil mural from EO Stone, 15 pieces of Asian art and artifacts from T.K. Asian Antiquities, a tapestry from Arita-Eduardo Cohen, a painting titled “Landscape” by Paisaje from Cernuda Arte, as well as important pieces of jewelry from exhibitors Camilla Dietz Bergeron Ltd., Primavera Gallery, Steven Neckman Inc. Vendome Inc. and more.


Among the guests who attended Opening Night were: Honorary Chairman Pat and Richard Johnson; Chairmen Tracy and Matthew Smith; Co-Chairmen Nicole and David Atkinson and Melanie and Christopher Hill; Ewa and Scott Diament, Kris Charamonde and Jennifer Frederick, Wendy and Robb Samuels of the Palm Beach Show Group; Sonja Abrahamson and Mark Stevens; Jane and Gordon Brown; Paula and Mark Cook; Reggie Dominique; Maureen Donnell; Lisa Erdmann; Cathy and John Flagg; Connie Frankino; LuLu and Jamie Gordon; Bill Kopp; Melissa and Brian Lee; Ross Meltzer; Elizabeth and Adam Munder; Nicole and Ryan Munder; Patty Myura; Crissy Poorman and Doug Luce; Kristy and Grier Presley; Patt and Bill Sned; Paul Snitkin; Sandy and Buddy Thompson; Jane Volk; Laura and Shakir Wissa; Penny and Keith Williams; Harvey Oyer and Monique Merrill; and Alex Taylor.
