Young Friends of the American Red Cross

Party for a Purpose at Mar-A-Lago Beach Bash

 

Palm BEACH, Fla. (January 7, 2009) – The tropical glow of tiki-torches guided guests through the grounds of the legendary Mar-A-Lago Beach Club in Palm Beach. More than 300 attendees closed out the year during the  poolside celebration on December 30 at the Young Friends of the American Red Cross Beach Bash.

Dancing to the festive tunes of the New York City native Alex Donner Contemporary Band, party-goers lined up to capture candid shots in the vintage style booth provided by Photo Booth Social while enjoying delectable BBQ beach bites and sipping signature martinis.  Adding to the glamour and excitement of the evening, surprise celebrity guest appearances were made by business and media magnate Donald Trump and legendary boxing promoter Don King.

“We are so thrilled with the success of this event’s return to Palm Beach,” said Bobby Leidy, event co-chair. ”Thanks to the incredibly dedicated committee and volunteers who worked to put this together, the Young Friends Beach Bash has taken another huge step in establishing itself as a ‘must attend’ party of the season.“

King chose the winning ticket from the thousands of raffle tickets purchased by hopeful attendees vying for the swank Chopard and C. Orrico sponsored swag bag. Luxurious auction prizes included Chopard his and hers watches, an original piece of jewelry by Jen Scoz, a weekend suite at New York City’s Hotel Plaza Athenee, earrings from Ivanka Trump's collection, a luxury crocodile handbag by Daniella Ortiz, dinner at Trevini’s, brunch for four at Mar-A-Lago, a Tracy Zych handbag, a Kearsley custom duvet and shams, an author signed copy of Barbie Live by photographer Nancy Ellison, an underwater image by Chris Leidy, pampering products from Clarks Botanicals, and lunch and a personal shopper from Bergdorf Goodman.

Attendees included Donald Trump; Don King; co-chair Bobby Leidy; co-chair Elizabeth Meigher; co-chair Terri Mersentes; Nancy and Bill Rollnick; Grace and Chris Meigher; Emma Pulitzer; Charlotte Pulitzer; Colleen Orrico; Nanci Gabay; Benedict Ives; Stephanie Katz; Chris Leidy; Adam Boalt; Storey Cowles;  Larry Casey; Daniella and Alfredo Ortiz .

“The Red Cross is delighted with this opportunity to extend our presence into the younger community of the Palm Beach area,” said Larry Casey, CEO of the American Red Cross Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter. “The Young Friends of the Red Cross are doing an amazing job in their mission to establish and nurture relationships with the next generation of local Red Cross supporters.”

With its rich history amidst the Palm Beach social scene, the Young Friends Beach Bash’s recent reprisal is the brainchild of Bill and Nancy Rollnick, chairmen of 2009 International Red Cross Ball. Initiated in 1972 by the late Helen Rich, Palm Beach resident and public relations master; Sally Fenlon-Young, wealthy socialite; and H. Loy Anderson, noted banker and Palm Beach resident, the event was known simply as the Young Friends of the Red Cross. The Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American Red Cross hope to reinstate its tradition as a venue for the next generation of Palm Beach and New York philanthropists to initiate and fortify relationships with local causes.
