“Carnival in Rio” Dazzles Palm Beach


Palm Beach, FL – A profusion of brilliant colors set the stage for the 2009 Palm Beach Gala, “Carnival in Rio,” benefiting Alzheimer’s Community Care. Capturing the true spirit of the sights and sounds of Brazil, guests at Mar-a-Lago felt truly transported to the exotic South American destination. Approximate Gala revenues were in excess of a record-breaking $600,000.

The evening began with a cocktail reception poolside and silent auction in the white and gold ballroom. Guests enjoyed meeting and greeting Mr. Donald Trump who was in attendance. Everyone then proceeded to the Grand Ballroom, which was spectacularly adorned with unique colorful centerpieces and sparkling decor by Bruce Sutka.  The Steven Chase Orchestra, a spirited Brazilian Dance Troupe and a ballroom dance exhibition by Warren and Babette Brown provided lots of high-energy entertainment.

Corey Saban, the evening’s Master of Ceremonies, introduced Larry Butcher, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Alzheimer’s Community Care and Mary Barnes, the organization’s President and CEO who warmly thanked the evening’s dedicated chairs Geri and Frank Morrow, and reminded everyone of the importance of the mission of Alzheimer’s Community Care.

A very special highlight of the evening was Celebrity Chair Lainie Kazan who spoke eloquently from the heart of her experience as a caregiver for her mother, afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease.

Auctioneer Neil Saffer, led an enthusiastic live auction consisting of:  A 2009 Mini Cooper Convertible or 2009 Mini Cooper Clubman, courtesy of Braman Motorcars of Palm Beach; A Diamond and Ruby Necklace, courtesy of Rosenberg Diamonds & Co.; Montblanc His and Hers Solid Gold Sport & Profile Timepieces, courtesy of the Montblanc Boutique at Palm Beach Gardens; and a Five-Night Stay at Raffles Hotel in Dubai, courtesy of Raffles Hotels and Resorts.  The Grand Prize Raffle for a 14-day, 13-night Celebrity European Cruise, courtesy of Indian River Travel, was drawn with Gerald Berson the lucky winner.

The inaugural Leo and Anne Albert Memorial Award was presented to Gala Honorary Chair and noted philanthropist Hermé de Wyman Miro.  The award, which is to be presented annually at the Alzheimer’s Community Care Palm Beach gala, will be bestowed to an individual who has demonstrated generosity of spirit and kindness of heart to those in need and who serves as a role model for outstanding charitable responsibility.

The evening’s additional sponsors receiving thanks included:  Carl Domino,Inc., The Richard & Helen DeVos Foundation, Joy Miltenberger, TD Bank, Tyco/ADT, Michael C. Becker & Co., VeriChip and Café Protégé.  

Alzheimer’s Community Care serves as an innovative model of care that advocates for services and resources to promote and provide specialized, compassionate, quality care to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders patients and caregivers.  The organization’s strategic principle is “to place a safety net around patients and caregivers every day.”  For more information, call (561)683-2700 or visit
