Palm Beach Gardens, FL (April 29, 2009) It was a gorgeous South Florida night – the evening was electrifying as Palm Beach Gardens, Legacy Place shimmered - and all ingredients came together for the American Lung Association of Florida who brought its successful culinary event to the unique outdoor destination of Legacy Place. The American Lung Association’s Food & Wine Experience in Legacy Place was an incredible success.  In today’s economy, it was a great way to sample so many fantastic local restaurants while also supporting such a worthy cause. 

The wide variety of fine gourmet food and wine and the beautiful South Florida weather blended perfectly to make this an amazing experience, remarked Tammy Clarke, Advisory Board

President of the American Lung Association of Florida.


Contributing to the successful mix of the evening were over forty area restaurants, sampling of 16 different wines from Total Wine & More and several wines from Publix Greenwise Market. There were also martini and beer samplings, an eye-catching belly dancer from Greek restaurant Ouzo Blue, a dancing cow from Chick-fil-A and live music and entertainment provided by radio celebrities Mo and Sally from KOOL 105.5 FM.


The Legacy Village merchants also provided everything from Guitar Hero video game from Play ‘n’ Trade to chair massages from Salon Z. The organization produced a truly winning recipe for the inaugural Legacy Place Food Wine and Art Experience, an annual benefit for the American Lung Association of Florida.


The event took place on April 23rd, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. and was graced by cloudless skies and perfect temperatures – ideal for the almost 800 attendees strolling amid taste-tempting vendors offering delicious foods and wines. 

The American Lung Association of Florida was happy to partner with Legacy Place to showcase the shopping and dining destination where there is truly something for everyone.


“Legacy Place was delighted to host the first annual Legacy Place Food and Wine Experience, benefiting the American Lung Association. Over 800 attendees were on hand to visit Legacy and experience all we have to offer. We are thrilled to be the host sponsor of the area's premier event,” said Mary Lou Fogerty, Legacy Place Property Manager.


Law-enforcement from the city of Palm Beach Gardens was on hand and skillfully utilized the occasion to demonstrate the capabilities of their department. Members of their team exhibited a strong presence as they patrolled the venue in a variety of Sheriff vehicles that included patrol cars, and 2-wheeled Segways.


Restaurant presenters included: The Capital Grille, Bagel Boyz, Chick-fil-A, Legal Seafood, Moe's Southwest Grill, PF Changs China Bistro, Seasons 52, TGI Friday's, Tossed, Brio Tuscan Grille, Pizza Fusion, Cafe Chardonnay, Wild Orchids Café, Bice Bistro, Leila Restaurant, Brewzzi, Hoffman's Chocolates, Ouzo Blue, RA Sushi Bar, Taverna Opa, Havana Restaurant, John Bull English Pub, Sal's Italian Restaurant, Boulevard Restaurant and Gourmet Deli, J.

Honorary Chairs Dr. Joseph & Shannon Giaimo and Frank & Bjaye Pilotte skillfully directed their effort and dedication to the planning of the night and expressed gratitude towards all of those involved for pulling together this crowd-pleasing event.


Adding distinction and interest to the event was the award presented by our Honorary Chair, Dr. Joseph Giaimo to Legacy Place. Mary Lou Fogarty accepted the honor on behalf of Legacy Place for their partnership, support and all of their generosity.
