LIFE's star-studded 19th Annual “Lady in Red” Gala

Palm Beach, Florida — On Saturday, December 1, 2012, LIFE will host the 19th Annual "Lady in Red" Gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach. Always the much anticipated start of the Palm Beach social season, the gala will begin at 6:00 pm with cocktails followed by dinner and dancing.

Lois Pope and Suzi Goldsmith will serve as Chairwomen of LIFE's 19th Annual "Lady in Red" Gala. Co-Chairs are Sally and Dick Robinson. Celebrities, local dignitaries and socialites will gather for this spectacular evening that will include entertainment by famed Tonight Show host Jay Leno and the red-hot party band, Sultans of Swing. Additional performances will include the Palm Beach Symphony with Russian Virtuoso Lola Astanova and the 60 Member Mormon Choir.

Lois Pope, chairman of the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, Inc., and President of LIFE (Leaders In Furthering Education), is also chairman of the Disabled Veterans' LIFE Memorial Foundation. She has dedicated the last 15 years to raising funds for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, the only National Memorial dedicated to paying tribute to the three million permanently disabled veterans living today and to all deceased disabled veterans throughout our history. Only weeks ago the FHWA approved a discretionary grant of $6,042,000 to the District of Columbia for the street/road infrastructure work around the Memorial site clearing the way for construction to begin.

The Lois Pope Life Foundation and LIFE have also provided awards for medical research, scholarships, summer camp programs, the performing arts, and animal welfare. Projects include the University of Miami-based Lois Pope LIFE Center, the leading facility in the world for research in paralysis and neurological diseases. Most recently the Lois Pope LIFE Center has received FDA approval for the use of Schwan Cells on human beings in order to cure paralysis.

This revolutionary process will change spinal cord injury research
and treatment forever.

Mrs. Pope just recently donated a life-saving ambulance to American Friends of Magen David Adom, the “Israeli Red Cross”, to add to the four she has already given. She has also been responsible for creating a life-saving clean water project in hurricane-ravaged Guatemala; scholarships for community-minded, aspiring physicians attending the City College of New York and gave $300,000 to the Sudanese Genocide Response Team to help young refugee women in the Sudan. She is also a member of the board of directors of the prestigious American Humane Association which is the nation's voice for the protection of children and animals.

Suzi Goldsmith, Founder of Tri County Humane Society provides Pet Therapy programs and over a fifteen year period has found loving homes for countless animals through its rescue missions. A few of the many organizations Mrs. Goldsmith is involved with are The American Heart Association, Children’s Place at Home Safe,
 Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, American Red Cross, WXEL Public Broadcasting, International Society of Palm Beach, Palm Beach Antiques Show, Easter Seals of South Florida, Palm Beach Fireman’s Organization, Center for Family Services, KidSanctuary, and Alzheimer’s Association.

In addition to LIFE, she serves on the Board of Directors for the American Cancer Society, Palm Beach Round Table, Le Chaine des Rotisseurs and the American Lung Association.

Tickets to the" Lady in Red" Gala are $700 per person. All proceeds from the evening will benefit LIFE’s partnership with American Humane Association (AHA) which includes a program to protect the voiceless and the vulnerable in our society - abused and neglected children and animals. Programs that will be served are in Palm Beach County, including a large Pet Mobile for adoption purposes and rescue service during times of emergency .

Honorees Extraordinaire of the 19th Annual Lady in Red Gala are Mary Ann & Walt Schwenk; Grand International Chairwoman is Hermé de Wyman Miro; Honorary International Chairmen are Elizabeth & Jeffrey E. Bateman and Veronica Atkins; Honorary Chairmen are Maude Emerson Cook, Mary Virginia & Henry Fong, Patrick M. Park and Ari Rifkin; LIFE’S Hero Ambassadors are Toni Holt Kramer & Robert Kramer, Terry Ebert Mendozza & Joseph Mendozza; and Junior Chairsmen are Maria Pope Kessel & Kerry R. Kessel and Gail Worth.

Sponsors of the "Lady in Red" Gala include Tiffany & Co.,
Braman Motorcars and Wells Fargo Bank.

LIFE is dedicated to helping and improving the lives of the voiceless and vulnerable in our society – those who are disadvantaged, marginalized, or forgotten because of disabilities, socio-economic status, neglect, age, abuse, and other barriers. LIFE is committed to providing aid, assistance, and awards for disabled veterans, medical research, college scholarships, humanitarian relief, the performing arts, and animal welfare.
