“A true Guardian Angel for Disabled Vets”

Palm Beach, FL --On Friday, December 4, 2009, LIFE will host the 16th annual "Lady In Red" Gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach. Lois Pope and Dick Robinson are Chairmen of this non-stop, fun-filled evening which will include cocktails and silent auction followed by dinner, dancing and hilarious entertainment by Dean of Impersonators, Rich Little.  Thanks to the generosity of Simon Fireman, who has graciously donated $100,000 for the second year in a row, more than 100 disabled veterans will have the opportunity to attend the gala.


“Simon Fireman is truly my angel, and a guardian angel for Disabled Veterans,” said Lois Pope, founder and president of LIFE and the Lois Pope Life Foundation.  “Without his unwavering support, it would not be possible for these deserving veterans to be present at this wonderful evening being held in their honor.”


Simon C. Fireman is truly an uncommon individual with incredible vision who has distinguished himself in three vital areas of life: as an internationally renowned business executive, an honorable and honored administrator in the federal government, and as a notable philanthropic leader in the community. He has clearly demonstrated, in these three capacities, an exceptional passion for innovation, a talent for implementation, and the ability to combine these traits into uncommon accomplishments. Mr. Fireman has been commissioned by former presidents to lead task forces and has served on countless advisory committees. He has also had much success as CEO of his own major companies.

Considering it his corporate responsibility to share his success by helping others, he began the Simon C. Fireman Charitable Foundation in 1995. Chairman of numerous charity functions, he has recently served as the Grand Chairman and honoree of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Palm Beach, Fla., and Chairman of the American Red Cross Society Ball. Mr. Fireman has also taken on the role of international honorary chairman to the Rabbinical College of America. Additionally, he and his wife, Norma, have been appointed “Ambassadors of Hope” by the Palm Beach Chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Guests will also be treated to fabulous gifts and prizes from LIFE’s unwavering supporter, Tiffany & Co.  Additionally, there will be a chance to win a racy red convertible Mini Cooper, generously donated by Braman Motorcars. Guests will be boogying to the hottest party band, Soul Survivors in Mar-a-Lago’s exquisitely beautiful ballroom, which no one can “Trump”.  A fabulous time is sure to be had by all, with the guarantee, what happens at the Gala . . . stays at the Gala. 


Suzi Goldsmith and Ari Rifkin will serve as Co-Chairwomen of the Lady in Red Gala.  Liz and Jeff Bateman, Senior Regional Vice President at Tiffany & Co. are Honorary Chairmen.  LIFE will also take great pleasure on this special evening to honor Rhoda & David Chase with The Philanthropist Extraordinaire Award, will proudly present Hermé de Wyman Miro, Grande Dame of Palm Beach with the prestigious Victoria Award, and Leo Albert will be remembered with The Disabled Veterans LIFE Award, In Loving Memory.


This much anticipated start of the Palm Beach social season will begin at 6:30 pm with cocktails followed at 8:00 pm by dinner and dancing.   All proceeds from the evening will benefit the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial and LIFE’s Summer Camp Program for underprivileged and special needs children.


Tickets to the “Lady In Red” Gala are $500 per person and attire is black-tie.

To request more information, please contact LIFE at 561.865.0955.  Tickets to the “Lady in Red” Gala are
 tax-deductible by law.


Mrs. Pope is also committed to the cause of raising the profile of America’s unsung heroes. In addition to her support of disadvantaged students, she is leading the effort to build in Washington, D.C. the nation’s first memorial to honor America’s disabled war veterans. There are more than three million living disabled veterans.
