Black Tie International:  Alan Lebow Award

Amanda, Alan and Patricia Lebow in Paris, 2007

Amanda, Alan and Patricia Lebow in Paris, 2007


to Present the First Annual

Three Winning Students Will Receive $500 Cash Prize on March 20;
Application Deadline is February 1




(West Palm Beach, FL – The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will be bestowing the first annual Alan Lebow Award for Excellence in Recitation at a special reception in the Persson Rehearsal Hall on Friday,
March 20.

The award – a $500 cash prize that will go to each of three full-time high school or college students who demonstrate financial need – is named for Alan Lebow, who passed away last February 23, just a month before his 82nd birthday.

Predicated on Mr. Lebow’s lifelong love of Shakespeare and poetry, the goal of the award is to inspire students to pursue literature as a career or avocation. In fact, the three winners of the new Alan Lebow Award will be selected based on their presentation of a memorized Shakespearean selection of three minutes or less. The top 20 candidates will be invited to attend the March 20 reception.

In addition to the cash prize, the three winners also will receive tickets to the March 20 performance of the Acting Company and The Guthrie Theater’s performance of Romeo and Juliet in the Kravis Center’s Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Playhouse.

The Alan Lebow Award for Excellence in Recitation was endowed by Kids’ Dreams, the public charity founded by Alan and Patricia Lebow. Mrs. Lebow is the founder and managing partner of the West Palm Beach office of the law firm Broad and Cassel.

“Thanks to the support of our friends, Kids’ Dreams is a public charity that not only helps underserved children in our community but also lends support to our zoo, museum and the Kravis Center by giving children the opportunity to experience these cultural centers in conjunction with mentoring by local law enforcement representatives,” said Patricia Lebow.

“My husband loved poetry, art, literature and music,” she added. “I know he is so proud of what we are doing in his memory.”

Applications for the Alan Lebow Award for Excellence in Recitation, presented by Kids’ Dreams, are due by February 1 at 5 p.m.

For information, please call the Kravis Center Education Department at

About Kids’ Dreams:

For the past two summers, Kids’ Dreams sent children from the Youth Empowerment Center of the Criminal Justice Commission of Palm Beach County to camp at Palm Beach Zoo. In addition to animal encounters and a visit to the South Florida Science Museum, the campers spent time getting to know a sheriff's deputy. Older youth were given a Narcotic Overdose Prevention and Education (NOPE) Task Force presentation. Kids’ Dreams also hosted 140 youngsters during the Max Planck Science Tunnel exhibit at the museum and has awarded a partial college scholarship; plus, the charity helps at-risk youth pay for academic assistance.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is a not-for-profit performing arts center whose mission is to enhance the quality of life in Palm Beach County by presenting a diverse schedule of national and international artists and companies of the highest quality; by offering comprehensive arts education programs; by providing a Palm Beach County home in which local and regional arts organizations can showcase their work; and by providing economic catalyst and community leadership in West Palm Beach, supporting efforts to increase travel and tourism to Palm Beach County.
