Wheels for Kids Luncheon
Raises More Than $100,000


When Chairman Gale S. Brophy decided to honor many of her friends who had chaired events and made a difference in Palm Beach's charity world at a luncheon for Wheels for Kids she never dreamed the results would be so fantastic.  As Ms. Brophy finished  thanking the guests and special supporters of the event, Mrs. Florence de George unexpectedly announced from her table that she was donating $50,000 for wheelchairs! 

Then Mrs. de George was introduced to the Rodriguez family who will receive one of the customized strollers she made possible.  Carlos Rodriguez is a Palm Beach Police Officer with a two-year old daughter with cerebal palsy.   "I was brought to tears by Mrs. de George's generosity and the overwhelming support of everyone involved with this wonderful event!" stated Denise Jungbert, President and Founder of Wheels for Kids.

"I am proud to support Wheels For Kids.  This organizations is totally run by volunteers and has no administrative costs.  That means that every dollar raised goes to purchase customized wheelchairs and strollers.  It was very touching to see the two families receive their wheelchairs at the luncheon," said
Gale S. Brophy.

Wheels For Kids is a local Palm Beach non-profit organization founded by Denise  Jungbert because of her personal experiences and challenges acquiring customized wheelchairs for her daughter, Ashlee, who was born with cerebal palsy.  Many working families with children who have permanent physical disabilities do not
qualify for government or private subsidies, but cannot afford the much needed wheelchairs.  Wheels For Kids mission is to improve the quality of life of deserving families by providing customized mobility devices.

The luncheon was held February 3rd at Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach.  The day was perfect, the auction was beautiful, the food and service was excellent, the guests had lots of time to mingle and chat, the speakers were brief, and every guest left feeling warm inside about helping such a wonderful cause.
