(PALM BEACH, FL---) The friendship was palpable at “An Evening of Friends,” the Fifth Annual Bipolar Dinner Dance of The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation at Club Colette on January 31, 2010, chaired by Christine Curtis, Lori Gendelman, Dorothy Kohl and Denise Hanley, who welcomed the guests with Junior Chairmen Micah and Rob Ford, founders of the Young Friends of the Foundation.  The friendship theme was also reflected by the participation of the Honorary Chairmen that included Julie Cummings, Lore Dodge, Frances Fisher, Sandy Heine, Susan Keenan, Brantley Knowles, Mary Alice Pappas, Mamie Walton and Mary Webster.


After the cocktail reception, guests moved to the dining room where Lori Gendelman and Dorothy Kohl, who directed the décor, emphasized shades of purple and lavender aglow in candlelight.  During dinner, Dusty Sang, Ryan’s father, thanked the Foundation’s friends and supporters and spoke about the Foundation’s progress over the past five years. Since its inception, , the Foundation’s informational and interactive website has reached people in all
50 United States and in 67 countries.  The website serves as an important outreach resource for awareness, understanding and research about child and adolescent Bipolar Disorder and the Foundation.  


The guests enjoyed dinner and dancing to the live music of Euphoria.  An evening highlight was the raffle drawing for a one-of-a-kind pair of chalcedony “Flower” brooches and matching ear clips, designed by the renowned, international couture designer, Tony White, and donated by Peter Martino, who attended the event. The set, valued at $10,000, was created exclusively to benefit the Foundation’s special evening in Palm Beach and was won by Michael Scharf.


The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization, established by Joyce and Dusty Sang in honor of their son, Ryan Licht Sang, who passed away in August 2004 at the age of 24.  Ryan, who was born and raised in Palm Beach, suffered from early-onset bipolar disorder, a serious mental illness that manifests with recurring episodes of mania and depression.  Ryan did not survive because of the state of medical science. 


The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation’s mission is to foster awareness, understanding and research for Child and Adolescent Bipolar Disorder, and through its “Quest For The Test™” initiative, to find an empirical test for Bipolar Disorder so that early detection in children and adolescents becomes a reality.


Proceeds from the “An Evening of Friends” Dinner Dance will help fund the Foundation’s mission.   For information call
