Celebrating spring and the newest fashions, a crowd of more than 150 women gathered at Frenchman’s Reserve during Easter Seals’ recent Tiptoe Through the Tulips…Stepping Out in Style event.  The ultimate girls’ luncheon featured the must-have looks of the season, gifts for pampering, girls’ getaways and much more- all to benefit children with special needs and disabilities at Easter Seals Igoe-Amar Child Development Center.
             “The Tiptoe Through the Tulips luncheon is a fashion lover’s dream,” said Rhonda Clinton, executive director of Palm Beach/Martin/St. Lucie Region of Easter Seals Florida.  “The incredible silent and live auction items, secured by our co-chairwomen Jennifer Hardiman and Karen Holmes along with the committee, raised critical funds to assist our therapies and school readiness programs for children with special needs – birth to age five.  When Easter Seals graduate, six-year-old Bella Cavallo proudly spoke to the crowd about her accomplishments that were made possible through the care and services she received at our Center, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  She has blossomed into a beautiful little girl who now attends the Benjamin School and is a shining example of the best work Easter Seals can do with our students.”
            Easter Seals Igoe-Amar Child Development Center is the area’s only full-time center for children of ALL abilities. Easter Seals helps children with disabling conditions due to birth, disease, accident or injury through pediatric speech, physical, occupational and behavioral therapies made available in a preschool setting.  These services help prepare children for success in school while affording parents an opportunity to continue their careers or education.
             “I am so proud of how far Bella has come,” said Kerry Cavallo, Bella’s mother.  “It was so nice to see so many generous supporters at the luncheon who were there to benefit the programs and services Easter Seals offers that are very important to many families just like ours.  Bella was born profoundly deaf and without a vestibular system, which regulates her body’s sense of balance.  At Easter Seals, she was able to learn coping mechanisms that enabled her sit up, then stand and eventually walk and run.  Now we watch her ride a bike and even ride a horse, just like many little girls dream of doing.”      
             Emcee, Tania Rogers from WPTV NewsChannel 5, had excited guests on their feet bidding on live and silent auction items.  Showcasing the "Must Have Looks of Spring," the fashion show was co-hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach Gardens and Palm Beach Illustrated
            Along with Hardiman and Holmes, Tiptoe committee members included: Sandi Berkenfeld, Karin Brush, Sherri Daniels, Ann Kohlmeyer, Donna Lewis, Ildy Philbrook, Jeanne Pritchard, Heidi Reuwer, Suzanne Ross and Regina Thomson.
            Sponsors included: Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach Gardens and Bliss at the Platinum level; and Gold level Weiss Capital Management, Inc. and Maria J. Patullo, Esquire.  At the Silver level were Broad and Cassel; Miller's Fine Decorative Hardware, Inc.; Carolyn Spellman of IGE Solutions, Inc.; Palm Beach Illustrated; Robert Given of CB Richard Ellis; Sheila Mead of New Dawn Companies; Tara W. Duhy of Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A.; and The Bainbridge Companies LLC.  Bronze level rounded out the Tiptoe sponsors with Lorraine R. Bolton of Rogers Design Group.
