Black Tie International:
Seventh Annual For Everglades Benefit


Dave Matthews

2012 Everglades Foundation Benefit announces
blockbuster lineup –

Dave Matthews, Surfing Champion Kelly Slater and hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Joe Scarborough & Mika Brzezinski

Seventh annual benefit will spotlight the value of our water resources to celebrate Florida’s coastal heritage


Attendees participating in the Seventh annual For  Everglades Benefit at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla., on Friday, February 17 will be treated to one of the world’s best live recording artists, Dave Matthews, who will headline the evening event.  Matthews has partnered with leading environmental groups across the globe to raise awareness of the need for land and water conservation initiatives to sustain our world’s growing population.

Former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough and his MSNBC “Morning Joe” Co-Host Mika Brzezinski will emcee the benefit.

Eleven-Time World Surfing Champion and Florida native, Kelly Slater, will serve as the evening’s Honorary Chairman — setting the water-focused, coastal style theme for the event.

“The Everglades is surrounded by and connected to some of the world’s best beaches, reefs, fishing spots and surf breaks. The 2012 benefit will honor our connection to the water and the contribution the Everglades makes to our vibrant coastal communities,” said Kirk Fordham, CEO, Everglades Foundation.

The event will open with cocktails, followed by dinner, a live auction and a very special musical performance by Dave Matthews.

“The Everglades -- a global and national treasure that captures the imagination and support of people all over the world -- provides the daily supply of fresh drinking water for seven million Floridians. “For millions of individuals and families, the beaches and countless water bodies connected to the greater Everglades ecosystem serve as a recreational Mecca. Anglers, surfers, paddlers, hunters, hikers, and other explorers enjoy the vast, diverse landscapes that make south Florida a unique destination for lovers of the outdoors,” said Fordham.

The ForEverglades benefit raises over $2 million annually to support the science, communications, advocacy, education, and legal programs of the Everglades Foundation — all geared to protecting and restoring what remains of this fragile ecosystem. The board of directors supports all of the Foundation’s administrative and fundraising expenses, allowing 100% of the funds raised at the benefit to directly support these programs.

Notable musical guests who have supported the benefit in past years include Kenny Chesney, Sting, Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Diana Ross, and John Mellencamp. Prominent attendees include Cindi and Nick Bollettieri, Chris Evert, Carl Hiaasen, Lydia and Robert Forbes, Elaine and Ken Langone, John McEnroe, Thalia and Tommy Mottola, Kara and Steve Ross, and Mats Wilander, along with Jimmy Buffet and Jack Nicklaus, who serve on the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Benefit Chairmen for this year’s event include: Sonia and Paul Tudor Jones II, Kathy and Paul Leone, Garrison duP. Lickle, Mary Morse, Polly and David Ober, Ashley and Mike Ramos, and Lia Reed.

To purchase tickets, contact Debbie Fife or Samantha Miller at
(212) 245-6570, ext. 20 or email Individual tickets start at $1,000, with preferred seating available at $2,500. Tables range from $10,000 to $100,000. All tickets include cocktails, dinner, musical performance and donor recognition.

About Florida’s Relationship with the Everglades

More than seven million people live in the Everglades watershed and depend on its natural systems for their livelihood, food and drinking water. Florida’s agricultural, boating, tourism, real estate, recreational and commercial fishing industries all depend on a healthy Everglades ecosystem, supporting tens of thousands of jobs and contributing billions to our economy. Its waters flow through the Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Ten Thousand Islands, National Wildlife Refuge, Biscayne National Park and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Together, these parks draw several million visitors each year contributing hundreds of millions of dollars to Florida’s tourism economy.

Since 1993, the Everglades Foundation has played a leadership role in advancing Everglades restoration through the advancement of scientifically sound and achievable solutions. The Foundation seeks to reverse the damage inflicted on the ecosystem and provides policymakers and the public with honest and credible resource to help guide decision-making on complex restoration issues.
