Life Changing Treatment Shouldn't Wait for a Pandemic to Pass. COVID is causing uncertainty for all of us. What is certain, however, is that diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes will continue to go undetected, undiagnosed, or untreated. That’s why it’s critical not to delay the care you or your loved ones may need during this pandemic. Schedule a screening. Get a checkup. See your doctor. By identifying symptoms early and more quickly initiating life saving treatment, the odds of living a long and healthy life are much more in your favor. Through it all, the #HealthcareHeroes at Jupiter Medical Center stand ready to serve and will continue providing Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast region with the safest, highest quality healthcare.

Editor’s note

One love, one heart...



s we head into season, we all know it’s going to look a little bit different this year. While restaurants, shops, and bars are open and finally able to try to regain some of what was lost during the past few months, we can pretty much count out any big social events—at least for the foreseeable future. And unfortunately, that is going to have an impact on the most important events of season: charity dinners and galas, which typically raise millions of dollars every year for those in need. At the same time, the demand for assistance is only increasing, with the pandemic adding to the burdens many already face. We must do what we can, if we have the ability, to help these charitable organizations continue on with their missions. It has been truly heartwarming to see so many individuals and businesses coming together to assist those affected by the COVID crisis— but let’s also not forget there are other serious issues in the community that predate this pandemic. Children are sick. People are homeless. Animals need our protection. And so does the planet. If you have the will and the means to help out, please turn to the Charity Datebook on page 59 for a comprehensive guide to area nonprofits and organizations, what they are planning this season—and how you can help. Also in this issue, we highlight a few of the generous people in our community striving to make life better for us all. Read their stories in “Profiles of Giving,” beginning on page 32, and “Sweet Music,” on page 18. Plus, check out a few fashion companies that are taking an altruistic approach to business (“Seaside Bliss,” page 46) and shop local products that give back (“Buying Power,” page 22). There are a couple of other stories inside I don’t want you to miss. “Guardians of the Sea” (page 40) takes you inside FAU’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute to discover all of the fascinating research being done to protect our local ecosystems, marine life, and so much more. And “Tech Town” (page 52) looks at the rise in bioscience companies moving to Jupiter and the potentially life-changing work happening at places like Scripps, Dyadic, and Max Planck. Each in its own way, these institutions are doing their part so we can all feel all right. Peace and blessings,

Sweet Music



ong before Jason Newsted strapped on his bass and hit the stage with Metallica, he played baritone saxophone in his junior high school marching band in Battle Creek, Michigan. “We had music in schools when we were kids, and I cannot imagine what it would have been like without it,” says the Jupiter resident. That’s why he became involved with Little Kids Rock (littlekidsrock.org), a national nonprofit dedicated to promoting music education in schools, including Palm Beach County. Over the years, the Grammy Award–winner has supported the organization’s work by visiting schools, recording songs written by kids in the program, raising funds through the sale of his artwork, and hosting benefit concerts. “Jason’s unwavering passion for music education in our schools is a great example of how support from the community allows us to increase our impact and serve more kids,” says David Wish, founder and CEO of Little Kids Rock. Several other organizations are bringing music opportunities to the kids in our

community—each in its unique way. Through programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County (bgcpbc.org), children can learn to play the violin, sing in the choir, and discover different cultural music traditions. “We’re giving students an opportunity not just to focus on their own heritage but also to learn about the people of the world,” says Casandra Tanenbaum, BGCPBC’s cultural arts coordinator. During the pandemic, BGCPBC has hosted a pair of virtual talent shows in the areas of song, dance, and other creative outlets. “It’s really important, now more than ever, for kids to be engaged in something they’re proud of,” says Tanenbaum. As the founder of Jupiter Academy of Music, Sandra Baran has always believed in the power of music. Ten years ago, when one of her young piano students died tragically, she was among those who came together to create a music scholarship as a way to keep 5-year-old Makayla Joy Sitton’s memory alive. Today, the Jupiter resident is codirector of the Grace Notes Music Foundation (gracenotesmusicfoundation.org), a

nonprofit that administers scholarships that provide private music lessons to students in Palm Beach County. This year, 18 students and 4 merit scholars are studying music thanks to Grace Notes. The foundation also offers group music instruction to underserved youth, assists aspiring musicians who can’t afford to purchase an instrument, enables kids to experience the magic of a live musical performance at local venues, and offers grants so kids can attend summer music camps. Another passionate local bringing music into children’s lives is Kathi Kretzer. Owner of Kretzer Piano from 1985 to 2018, she formed the Tequesta-based Kretzer Music Foundation (kretzermusicfoundation.org) in 2013 “to offer music to anyone who can’t afford it.” The foundation has donated pianos to more than 20 area organizations, such as Place of Hope, as well as keyboards to formerly homeless children at Adopt-A-Family and to Faith’s Place, an after-school program for inner-city children. Kretzer facilitates class lessons in schools and also offers individual instruction, in person and over Zoom, to children who have a donated keyboard or piano at home. “Music can change a child’s life,” she says. “It can give them confidence, coordination skills, and poise. And right now, with COVID, kids aren’t getting as much socialization—so music is even more critical.” ❖

WINGED Wonders

SPECIES: ROSEATE SPOONBILL Defining traits: Often mistaken for a flamingo because of its pink-hued body, but its beak looks more like a wooden spoon Where to spot one: Wading in shallow inland bays, between mangroves, and in brackish swamps




resident of Audubon of Martin County since 2014, Palm City resident John Nelson is an expert on the many beautiful birds that call our area home. The Kenyan-born mortgage broker made it his mission to learn about his surroundings, boating down the St. Lucie River and making note of all the bird species he found before going home to Google what he saw. “We have nature all around us, but all too often, we just ignore it,” says Nelson, 64. “But if you’re paying attention, just in your backyard, nature will come to you.” Bird-watcher wannabes can start by simply adding a feeder to their yard to draw certain species. Or start spending some time in places where birds gather—which isn’t hard considering 300 to 400 species call Florida home on any given day. Here, Nelson—who is also the voice of The Audubon Moment on Florida Public Radio, a contributor to National Geographic Channel’s World’s Deadliest series, a wildlife photographer, and a certified Florida Master Naturalist—offers a primer on 10 of the most interesting bird species you may encounter.

SPECIES: PAINTED BUNTING Defining traits: Small songbirds with vibrant splotches of red, blue, yellow, and green (males); yellow-green bodies (females) Where to spot one: In your backyard and woodland edges during winter

SPECIES: RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER Defining traits: Red crown, zebra-striped back, gray chest Where to spot one: Dominating backyard feeders and knocking on tree trunks


SPECIES: SANDHILL CRANE Defining traits: Adults can be as large as geese, with bulging mottled bodies atop stilt-like legs Where to spot one: Everywhere from wetlands to golf courses, often near standing water

SPECIES: GREAT BLUE HERON Defining traits: Tall and pewter-colored, adults have a racing stripe on their crown extending from the beak Where to spot one: Hanging out in inland waterways and occasionally neighborhood canals

SPECIES: FLORIDA SCRUB JAY Defining traits: Long-tailed gray songbird with striking blue patches and stripes Where to spot one: A hard-to-find species, it aptly occupies scrub habitats like the scrub oaks in Jonathan Dickinson State Park

9/14/20 1:01 PM


Audubon of Martin County maintains a list of 15 top birding spots (audubonofmartincounty.org/hot-spots). Here, Nelson shares his own top three.

SPECIES: OSPREY Defining traits: White crown and dark brown feathers (similar to a soaring raptor or a bald eagle) but with distinctive black eye stripe Where to spot one: Look for their stick nests atop dead trees and channel markers on inland waterways

Jonathan Dickinson State Park Spread out over 11,500 acres, JD State Park includes lots of birding habitat. You’ll find scrub jays, woodpeckers, osprey, red-shouldered hawks, and all types of wading birds along the Loxahatchee River, including white ibis and herons. 16450 SE Federal Hwy., Hobe Sound; floridastateparks.org

SPECIES: SANDERLING Defining traits: Bulbous body with a contrasting white belly; patches of black, white, and tan on its back Where to spot one: Darting Florida beaches and coastlines during winter

Possum Long Nature Center This site houses the Audubon of Martin County’s headquarters, which includes an extensive library and taxidermic specimens. But the real attraction is the 5-acre preserve, an urban forest full of many species, including black and white warblers, American redstarts, and two pairs of yellow-crowned night herons that have nested in the slash pines since 2002. 621 SE Palm Beach Road, Stuart; audubonofmartincounty.org

SPECIES: BROWN PELICAN Defining traits: Yellow head, giant bill, and a long neck for gobbling down its catch Where to spot one: Drifting overhead in groups along the coast or waiting for a snack at fishing piers

Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area From October to April, this artificial wetland in Okeechobee becomes home to wading birds, songbirds, and raptors, including two bald eagle nests. You can also find the Everglades snail kite and perhaps as many as 100 more species in a single day. Audubon of Martin County offers tours of the STA once a month by reservation. sfwmd.gov ❖

WHAT TO BRING SPECIES: IBIS Defining traits: Red legs and a patch around the eyes stand out in stark contrast to its snow-white feathers Where to spot one: Wading in water everywhere from the Everglades to swales

• Binoculars—$100 or so will get you “good-quality optics,” says Nelson • Camera with a good zoom • Spotting scope (a small, portable, high-power telescope) • Hat, sunscreen, bug spray • A birding app such as iBird Pro, which even offers audio bites of bird calls

HIDDEN WATER When North Palm Beach resident Jeff Irish took note of a problem with plastic not being recycled and polluting our area’s waterways, he decided to be part of the solution. He created Hidden Water, a line of still water that is canned in aluminum to cut down on plastic water bottle waste. Even the six-pack rings are made with nature in mind—they are created out of recycled beer mash and plant fibers, which decompose in three to four months. For every can purchased, one piece of plastic will be removed from the ocean. ($6/six-pack, $10/12-pack; hidden-water.com)

rowing up in South Florida, Josh Smith, 30, and William (“Joey”) Johnson, 28, never considered fresh-caught seafood a luxury. But when Smith’s sister, Ariel, moved to Nashville and complained about how difficult it was to find snapper, hogfish, or pink shrimp in local supermarkets, the duo started thinking about a new business venture. “We had a mutual friend, Mike Coats, with a seafood company in Lakeland,” says Johnson. “We presented him this idea of shipping out Florida-fresh seafood to the rest of the country, especially places that usually don’t get this type of seafood, and he agreed to become our supplier. That’s when we knew we could make Made You Hungry come to life.” Johnson, a home chef, and Smith, a former restaurant promoter, both graduated from Jupiter High School and attended Florida State University. Upon graduating from college, they teamed up to offer marketing services to restaurants and other food businesses in Jupiter. But they wanted to manage their own company—and Made You Hungry was their ticket. They launched the business in October 2019 with a



goal to deliver fresh Florida seafood directly to consumers—including yellowfin tuna, king crab legs, and red snapper. Besides seafood, the company offers various cuts of chicken and beef, such as brisket burgers, wagyu, and tomahawk steak. “No one provides this quality, especially nationwide,” says Smith. “Our fish runs through a freezing tunnel and is coated with a water glaze. Most Florida fish is sold ‘fresh’ to restaurants and grocery stores, but realistically, that fish is three to four weeks old by the time you get it.” Straight from the boat, Made You Hungry’s seafood is filleted and then frozen in 20 seconds via the tunnel, which measures in at -120 degrees Fahrenheit. The water glaze, Johnson and Smith explain, protects the taste, texture, and overall quality once defrosted. “Our fish literally tastes like it was caught that day,” says Johnson. During the early days of the pandemic, with many people hesitant to go to grocery stores, online delivery of goods became more popular than ever. While that was a positive thing for companies like Made You Hungry, Smith says it was challenging to deal with such extreme demand for products combined with

Josh Smith, Joey Johnson (right), and an array of their seafood and meats

meat shortages across the country. But the company got through it. “Our customer retention is very strong, and we’re growing at a steady rate,” he says. By year’s end, Made You Hungry hopes to incorporate a subscription model, allowing customers to receive weekly or monthly shipments of meat and fish. While most of their clientele

lives on the East Coast, the company delivers nationwide. They’re also looking to add additional products such as cheeses, desserts, and vegan proteins. “One day, we would love to scale this business to ultimately give back to the Jupiter community, whether that’s through donating food or another initiative,” says Smith. madeyouhungry.com ❖

Find Your Bliss



BD has been having a wellness moment—and with good reason. Short for cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis and hemp can treat anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, among other ailments. Many people add the extract to their lattes or smoothies

CBD oil has natural anti-inflammatory effects that can soothe sore muscles and joints.


as a booster, but recently CBD has also gained popularity in spa treatments like facials and massages. “A massage using CBD offers an unconventional way to get relief from muscle soreness, chronic pain, tension, and stress,” says Amanda Glanzberg, who owns Pure Bliss Day Spa in Jupiter. “CBD binds and acts on the CB2 receptors, which can be found near the skin, and this activates 5 the endocannabinoid system to deliver relief.” Ready to incorporate CBD into your spa routine? Here are a few local treatment options to consider.

PURE BLISS DAY SPA, JUPITER Head to Pure Bliss Day Spa for the CBD Nano Needling Infusion Facial. Nano needling is a pain-free treatment that uses a motorized device to stimulate the skin and help reduce fine lines, acne scars, and large pores. The facial includes the application of ChicBD cherry enzyme, followed by dermaplaning to exfoliate dead skin cells and hair from the face. The esthetician will then suffuse your skin with ChicBD Moringa CBD serum—a concentrated, antioxidant-rich skin infusion of CBD—before ending the treatment by either layering an Eminence Organic Skin Care face mask with a massage or an EstheMax jelly mask if the skin needs it. Pure Bliss also offers CBD massages, plus ointments and liquids for purchase. ($250 for a 60-minute facial; 828 W. Indiantown Road Suite 104, Jupiter; purebliss-dayspa.com; 561.745.7765)

Relaxing spa treatments including massage and facials get an extra boost when infused with CBD-infused oils and ointments.

ESSENTIALS SPA, PALM BEACH GARDENS For several years now, Keith and Kristi Laguna have offered CBD-infused Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular, and sports massages at Essentials Spa. The couple says that the topical CBD oil they use helps treat arthritis; tennis elbow; swimmer’s shoulder; muscle, joint, back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain; and bruises. Try the neuromuscular massage with CBD infusion, a deep massage that focuses on trigger points on the body that cause pain and discomfort. During a neuromuscular massage, the therapist applies pressure to each muscle for 10 to 30 seconds (as opposed to a Swedish massage, which incorporates long, relaxing strokes). The Lagunas say it is ideal for those who suffer from back pain, knee pain, headaches, or TMJ. Essentials Spa uses CBD Clinic products (a topical pain relief) in levels three to five for all of its treatments. (From $59.95 for a 50-minute treatment; 4206 Northlake Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; essentialsofpalmbeachgardens.com; 561.625.0902) KARLA’S MASSAGE THERAPY AND SKIN CARE, PORT ST. LUCIE Karla Nattis helps clients with pain relief and therapeutic massage so they can perform better on the job or during

physical activities like golf, CrossFit, running, powerlifting, and more. “Not only are we therapeutic, but we also make sure we provide a relaxing atmosphere to get the full experience of wellness,” says Nattis. For the ultimate CBD experience, choose from a 60- or 90-minute Canna-Bliss massage. Melt into relaxation as the oil soaks into the skin while the therapist focuses on specific areas of concern, finishing by applying a CBD ointment wherever pain is more prevalent. “I advise clients to leave the treatment on for the rest of the day since it will continue soaking into the skin/muscles and keep working on relief,” notes Nattis.

She operates Healing Palms Massage & Spa inside Salt of the Earth in Stuart, using a full-spectrum hemp oil that comes from Colorado Springs as well as other compounds that work with CBD to achieve better results. “There are many health benefits associated with using CBD topically and orally,” says Rasmussen. “When used during a spa treatment, topical CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-spasmodic, which helps relax muscles.” CBD treatments at Healing Palms Massage & Spa include massages, facials, aromatherapy, cupping, and more. A must-try is the CBD Hemp Oil Body Wrap, a custom wrap that uses Bentonite sea clay herbs and flowers along with hemp oil to nourish and calm the skin. The clay is applied, then heated wraps and an electric blanket are put on the body to maintain warmth for about 45 minutes or so. Rasmussen also performs foot reflexology for 10 to 15 minutes (longer if requested) during the wrap.

"Double Bogey" at The Burger Shack


Smoked brisket nachos at Papichulo


Dining with a Twist

Ahi tuna salad at Blue Pointe


With social distancing in place and a hint of cooler weather in the air, there’s no better time to dine en plein air at some of Jupiter’s most unique restaurant patios. These four venues kick things up a notch with fun outdoor activities to enjoy with family and friends.



Experience: cornhole and Foosball Nestled next to its interior space, the patio at Josco Bar and Oven feels like its own restaurant thanks to an outdoor bar, tons of seating, and a high ceiling that will keep late-season thunderstorms from ruining the fun. Imbibe a tasty creation off the cocktail menu while playing a game of cornhole, giant Jenga, or Foosball. For eats, brick-oven pizza reigns supreme at Josco; try the prosciutto and fig with caramelized onions, blue cheese, arugula, and balsamic glaze. 157 N. U.S. Hwy. 1, Tequesta; joscobarandoven.com; 561.972.7337

Experience: table tennis Driving south on U.S. Highway 1 in Jupiter, it’s hard to miss Papichulo Tacos, its front lawn dotted with colorful tables. But that scene doesn’t paint the whole picture: The restaurant’s backyard boasts picnic tables (including one sized for younger visitors) and a full-size Ping-Pong table perfect for a pickup game while waiting for an order of street corn with Cotija cheese and chipotle mayo or puerco tacos stuffed with pork shoulder, red cabbage, jicama, and sweet peppers. Those looking for something stronger than a Mexican soda should try the El Dorado margarita, made with blackberries, basil, agave, and lime. 1556 U.S. Hwy. 1, Jupiter; papichulotacos.com; 561.250.7274

THE BURGER SHACK AT LIGHTHOUSE COVE Experience: miniature golf and a movie The two 18-hole miniature golf courses at Lighthouse Cove provide hours of fun for kids and adults alike. And grown-ups get another bonus: The Burger Shack will deliver craft beer and cocktails directly to the hole you’re currently playing. End your game at the pavilion-style restaurant with a signature burger (try The Cove, which is topped with Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and “green goddess sauce”) while the kids hang out on the playground. On Fridays, end the evening with a family-friendly movie shown in the beer garden (during season). 617 N. A1A, Jupiter; theburgershackjupiter.com; 561.768.9574


BLUE POINTE BAR AND GRILL Experience: swimming pool Located at Jupiter Pointe Club and Marina, the Intracoastal-adjacent Blue Pointe Bar and Grill offers plenty of outdoor seating, including hammocks, a recently added tiki bar—and a swimming pool. Cool off with a relaxing dip before checking out the extensive menu featuring oysters and other delectable seafood plates. The chef can also cook your fresh catch. 18701 SE Federal Hwy., Tequesta; bluepointebarandgrill.com; 561.406.6270 ❖

The simple, beautiful definition of “philanthropy” is showing goodwill to fellow members of the human race. Whether through monetary donations, grassroots organizations, or time and compassion, here are just a few local folks doing what they can to help where they can.



hen Milton Maltz was 5 years old and living in South Bend, Indiana, a group of his kindergarten classmates called him hateful names because he was Jewish. Once during recess, they pushed him and started tearing his clothes, forcing him to run 10 blocks home. His parents were so devastated, they packed up and moved the family to Chicago. “I had never heard of anything like this before,” says Maltz, now 91, who still remembers every minute of the frightful day that helped shape his remarkable life. “While my wife, Tamar, and I give to many organizations, including the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, combating hate is at the top of our list.” In their hometown of Cleveland (they also have a home here, in Frenchman’s Creek), for example, they created the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in 2005 to address the issue through education. For 13 years, the museum has offered $100,000 “Stop


the Hate” scholarships as part of a contest encouraging young people to write essays about hate and tolerance while at the same time earning money for college. Recently, the Maltzes received the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Leadership Award for their lifetime of work in this area. Milton Maltz, a visionary entrepreneur, started his career as a child actor on radio dramas and TV specials in Chicago. He eventually worked in all areas of radio and TV, including the technical and creative sides; he wrote, directed, and produced The Fight for Freedom, a series of radio dramas reflecting the struggle for the creation of the State of Israel. In 1956, he founded Malrite Communications Group, a national company that bought, operated, and sold small and major market radio and TV stations, including West Palm Beach’s WFLX-Channel 29 (which Malrite bought in 1980), now a Fox affiliate. He started Malrite with a $6,000 loan from Tamar, now

90, whom he married seven decades ago after meeting while they were students at Roosevelt University in Chicago. (He later earned a degree in journalism from University of Illinois.) “Tamar had saved money from her salary teaching kindergarten and first grade,” Maltz says of the mother of his daughter and two sons. “She insists that I still owe her interest on the loan!” Through his ability to take risks when others were afraid, recognize top broadcasting talent, appreciate controversy and what makes news, and understand the idiosyncrasies of radio and TV on all levels, Maltz was very successful—a pioneer, like a Steve Jobs or Larry Page of his era. “I was curious, competitive, and fearless,” he says. “I knew ahead of the market what would attract listeners and viewers.” When he sold Malrite to Raycom Media in 1998 for an estimated $500-$600 million, he and Tamar were able to delve into philanthropy at the highest level. “We were concerned about mental

illness and wanted to help fund research in that area,” Maltz says of their early giving. “We felt it was important for young people to know that their mental issues did not have to follow them all of their lives and that there is a way out through learning, communication, and the arts.” Milton and Tamar give millions of dollars to both Jewish and non-Jewish arts, medical, cultural, and civic organizations across the United States but especially in Cleveland and South Florida, benefited mainly through the Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation (maltzfoundation.org). In Jupiter, of course, their generosity has transformed the cultural landscape in the form of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. The couple’s love for the arts, and Tamar’s observation that Palm Beach County was a “cultural desert” when the couple first spent time in the area, prompted them to take serious interest in improving the lives of locals. The Maltz era began like this: In 2001, the landmark Jupiter Theater building was acquired by the not-for-profit Palm Beach Playhouse (formed by a small group eager to revive the location that was once home to the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre). “The interior was a mess,” Maltz remembers. “They needed a changing room, and we wanted to end the dinner theater format and create a regular theater. When one donor who promised $1 million backed out, we put up the million to get things rolling.” In 2003, following a successful capital campaign, the 28,000-square-foot theater was renovated and renamed the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in recognition of its major benefactors. The official opening was February 29, 2004. After 16 years of improvements, additions, and successes (with a great staff led by Producing Artistic Director and Chief Executive Andrew Kato), the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is now undergoing a major $30 million expansion. The plans involve the creation of a Broadway-scale stage to compete with other top regional U.S. theaters like the Goodman Theatre in Chicago and La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, three floors of production facilities, and an innovative dining space, among other things. Before COVID-19 hit, the Maltzes had donated $5 million to match what had been given by other generous donors, COURTESY OF THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

and the expansion was set to be completed in phases beginning April 2021. But when the theater realized it would be shut down for the entire 2020-2021 season because of the pandemic, a decision was made to make good use of that dead time and complete the project in full. Milton and Tamar agreed to donate another $5 million to make that happen—and now the expanded theater is set to be completed by the time it reopens in the fall of 2021 with a production of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. “We are expanding the stage 6 feet to the right and 6 feet to the left, and adding another 10 feet of depth,” says Maltz. “We are thrilled about this because it allows us to be competitive and create Broadway-worthy shows right here.” Apart from the theater, the Maltzes’ generous gifts have helped enrich numerous local organizations, including Cleveland Clinic, Jupiter Medical Center, the Norton Museum of Art, and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. In Cleveland, Maltz was instrumental in bringing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum to town in 1995. He and Tamar have also endowed the Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western University’s performance center (they donated $30 million to the $64 million project), Cleveland Play House, Jewish Federation of Cleveland, and more. In Washington, D.C., Maltz used his moxie from radio programming

to develop the 2002 International Spy Museum, which earned him a letter of praise from former President George W. Bush. Other favored causes include the Anti-Defamation League, the State of Israel Bonds, and the Lieber Institute for Brain Development located on the campus of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. For more decades than many people have lived, Maltz has been doing what he can to help organizations that need it—and his daily grind has not stalled one bit. “I know I need to slow down,” he says. “But I like what I do. Tamar and I love the arts and love helping others enjoy their lives. I will continue doing this as long as I am physically able because my brain needs a regular workout.” ❖

helped boost the agency’s visibility as she brought lifesaving product recalls into the homes of millions with regular appearances on television shows like Good Morning America. After nearly eight years, the tireless public servant relinquished her chairperson role and founded SAFE (Safer America for Everyone), a Washington, D.C. nonprofit that exposed products it deemed dangerous or potentially harmful to the public. Apart from her busy humanitarian work, Brown, as well as her husband, Don, a successful real estate attorney and investor who passed away in 2019, was actively involved in D.C.’s dynamic charity scene. The couple gave generously to arts, cultural, and human rights groups in Washington and Martha’s Vineyard, their summer retreat. They set up personal foundations for themselves and their daughters (and, later, their grandchildren), who were raised to enjoy the simple reward of giving back. “We wanted to encourage the feelings of generosity we felt,” Brown says. When they moved their winter home to Palm Beach Gardens in 2003, Ann and Don were on the lookout for charities and organizations whose goals they shared and where their benevolence would matter the most. Since then, the pair has bequeathed millions of dollars to nonprofits, including about $6 million to local organizations like Scripps Research in Jupiter and the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. One of the couple’s most public donations came in 2011, when they endowed Palm Beach Dramaworks with $2 million to renovate the 210-seat theater in West Palm Beach. Brown later established the company’s Stagecoach Fund, which finances round-trip transportation for Palm Beach County schoolchildren to attend seasonal matinee productions. Brown has been especially benevolent of late when it comes to helping the homeless and formerly incarcerated. Recently, she donated $250,000 to The Lord’s Place’s Home for Good Campaign, which aims to bring supplemental housing, programs, JERRY RABINOWITZ


he Honorable Ann Brown was dabbling in tzedakah long before she knew what it meant. Meaning “righteous” in Hebrew, tzedakah (pronounced “tzeDA-kuh”) is the Jewish cultural and moral tradition of enabling others through contributions of time, service, or monetary rewards. During Sunday school, when the pushke, or charity box, was passed around, the young Washington, D.C. native would faithfully contribute a hefty portion of her allowance to help disadvantaged families. This act of kindness was the beginning of a life guided by benevolence. In 1964, after graduating from George Washington University with a degree in American Studies, Brown worked for the assistant Washington correspondent at the New York Post. Five years later, she departed the venerable daily to start a family and pursue a vocation in consumer product safety. While she cannot pinpoint the impetus that spawned her desire to stymie products with potentially life-threatening risks, she remembers being a child and singing along as her mother would play “Sing a Song of Safety” (written by Irving Caesar in 1937) on the piano. She also recalls her mother fashioning a safety harness for her baby stroller with one of her father’s belts. “She was obviously aware of children’s safety long before I had any notion of it,” says Brown. The subsequent 20-odd years were spent lending her time and talents to some of the capital’s leading grassroots organizations, including Americans for Democratic Action and the Consumer Federation of America, where she served as vice president for 15 years. Brown’s daughter, Cathy, vividly recalls the times her mother was televised slam-dunking dangerous, recalled toys into the trash or would take her and her younger sister, Laura, to active protests such as the infamous meat boycott of 1973. In March 1994, President Bill Clinton nominated Brown to commandeer the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (the “Honorable” title came with the job). As the government’s chief product-safety regulator, she recalled thousands of hazardous products, ranging from lead-tainted crayons to faulty coffee makers. Additionally, she implemented benchmark programs such as the CPSC’s Fast-Track Consumer Product Recall Program, a civic initiative that streamlined recall negotiations and eliminated bureaucratic red tape, which won the prestigious Innovations in American Government Award in 1998. Her media savviness also

and other services to those who need it. The money will also be put toward building a new re-entry center, where former prisoners can go for mentorship and personalized transition plans. Last year, The Lord’s Place honored Brown, who also serves as a board member, with its illustrious Ending Homelessness Award. Other charities that have benefitted from her generosity include the El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center in Jupiter, which provides education, employment, and other essentials to day laborers and their families. “Ann has been a significant contributor to the mission of El Sol,” says Executive Director Suzanne Cordero. For example, Cordero notes, “when the COVID-19 pandemic hit our area, [Brown] organized a neighborhood food drive at Frenchman’s Creek, then [personally] matched the amount received. Together, this raised about $50,000, which helped us provide food to the most vulnerable in our community.”

At 83, Brown continues to center her life on how she can help others. After physical therapy or a round of tennis, she typically scours the newspapers to “see who’s doing what and who needs help.” When she speaks of her own daughters’ altruism, her pride is palpable. “They do it better than I do,” she says. “It’s such a compliment to me they have pursued these kinds of issues with such generosity.” Now the youngest generation of Browns is following after Grandma. “They’re picketing,” Brown reports. “They send me pictures all the time. Imagine how thrilled I am that the work of helping others has trickled all the way to my grandchildren. I fully expect to see my great-grandchildren involved in it too.” Comforted, no doubt, by the knowledge that her family’s spirit for tzedakah will carry on. ❖

ori Griffith has long found fulfillment in helping others. Born in Canada and raised all across the United States before eventually settling in Jupiter, she spent 18 years working in the health care industry as office manager for a neonatal physician group in Palm Beach County and also volunteered extensively with organizations that assist children battling life-threatening illnesses. After seeing so many parents suffer financial and emotional trauma when their children were diagnosed with dangerous diseases—and nearly losing her own son a dozen years ago—she knew she wanted to devote her life to helping those in need. “It’s pretty amazing to be able to go to bed at night and know that you truly made a difference in the life of another human,” she says. Griffith, who also works as a photographer, is the woman behind Chasin a Dream Foundation (chasinadream.org), a nonprofit that provides assistance for families with children who are fighting cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other deadly diseases. But her involvement with the cause so close to her heart started long before that. Since 2011, she has been working with Freedom Waters Foundation. Based in Naples, the charity enhances the lives of children and veterans with cancer and other illnesses and disabilities by providing therapeutic boating experiences. As the foundation’s program coordinator in Palm Beach and Martin Counties, she is in charge of pairing boat owners with children. “An afternoon of boating helps the kids [at least temporarily] forget about being sick and just relax and have fun,” she says. “It is rewarding for the children, their siblings, and their parents.” It was in 2013 that Griffith first started her own grassroots movement to help children. One day, she met a fellow single mom in the parking lot of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. In conversation, Griffith learned that the woman had lost her house, moved into her car, then lost the car due to mounting bills related to her 2-year-old daughter’s unsuccessful fight with leukemia. “Her heartbreaking story got me going,” says Griffith. “I started


my first charity soon after.” Along with a few friends, she launched Kiting for Kids, a local beach toy drive for children fighting cancer that became a wonderful community effort. The charity event grew from collecting 50 toys to amassing many thousands, which have helped delight more than 100 children. By 2017, her corporate health care job was in flux, and she was pondering whether to accept another secure position. She decided instead to take a leap. Griffith took the less-than $10,000 she had in savings and put it—and all of her energy—into building Chasin a Dream Foundation. “I have always believed in the power of community and the concept of ‘locals helping locals,’” says Griffith, who has even trademarked the phrase. “When people can directly see where their donations are going in the community, I believe they want to become more involved.” Today, Chasin a Dream provides an array of services to children and their families—everything from supplying hospital backpacks filled with items like pillows, blankets, stuffed bears, and iPads to helping with funeral costs to matching service dogs with children in need. This past July, a 6-year-old girl in Wellington who was left paralyzed from the neck down after a car accident was united with an adorable service dog with a little help from Chasin a Dream. Griffith was able to connect the girl’s family with Furry Friends in Jupiter, who offered up a new pup named Juliet for the job. “Lori put her whole life and savings on hold to chase her dream of helping kids,” says John Huempfner, who leads the charity’s board of directors, along with his wife, Norma. “In three years, she has made Chasin a Dream into a phenomenal organization.” The foundation aims to help more and more kids as it grows and hopefully obtains grants. And to Griffith, there’s nothing more rewarding. “I have never worked so hard or made less money, but I have also never been happier,” she says. “I am blessed to be living this incredibly fulfilling life.” ❖

rom the air, the aquaculture park at FAU’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute emerges as an unassuming group of eight white low-rise buildings squatting in rows alongside the Fort Pierce Indian River Lagoon. Inside these modified greenhouses with metal roofs, engineers and researchers are creating and studying the ideal conditions to sustainably and responsibly increase the world’s supply of high-quality seafood. Banks of fish tanks, ranging from 30 gallons to 20,000 gallons, contain a variety of warm-water marine life such as fish, clams, shrimp, and various algae, including seaweed. Elsewhere on the 144-acre campus of Harbor Branch, Annie Page-Karjian, assistant research professor and clinical veterinarian, is at work on her specialty: aquatic animal health. At any given time, Page-Karjian might have 20 separate studies underway, but

the highest-profile work is being conducted with so-called “sentinel” species. Such animals respond to similar environmental threats as humans, giving us a good indication of the health of Florida’s coastal ecosystem. Sea turtles, for example, migrate miles between foraging and nesting grounds, eat near the top of the food web, breathe air, and generally live a long time, according to Page-Karjian. “They are vulnerable to a lot of the same environmental factors as humans, so when we see a healthy sea turtle, it tells us a lot of things are going right in our environment,” she says. According to Executive Director James Sullivan, the major research focus areas at Harbor Branch are: aquaculture innovation and food security, marine ecosystem conservation (which includes mammal research), ocean and human health, and technical innovation and national defense. Founded in 1971 by J. Seward Johnson Sr., son of one of the founders of Johnson & Johnson, the institute became part of Florida Atlantic University in 2007. Its mission, “ocean science for a better world,” is more important now than ever, says Sullivan, because the marine ecosystem is in peril. As any beachgoer can attest, the state’s annual harmful algal blooms, including red tide, have wreaked economic and environmental havoc. Underwater, things are also dire. “In Florida, we have a horrendous situation with coral reef disease, which is killing hard coral reefs


all along the coast,” says Sullivan. “We’re studying the cause of this unknown disease and researching a cure to eventually restore it.” More than 200 scientists, engineers, and students work on campus. And while the diversity of the research is astounding, all are interconnected and share the common goal of improving and maintaining the health of the marine environment, which impacts human health on land as well. Explains Sullivan: “Marine mammals live and play in the same water we do, and they eat the same species of fish we do. So if we start to see disease and toxins in them, it’s a problem for us too.” Conservation efforts enacted 30 years ago are partly responsible for the fact that sea turtles—especially green sea turtles— are generally doing well in Florida today, says Page-Karjian. But climate change may be working against them, affecting their food supply and population sex ratios. Page-Karjian and her team are in the process of a green turtle health assessment that spans several ecologically diverse sites across the state. South Florida beaches produce almost exclusively females, she explains, while cooler, northern beaches produce more males. “We like to say ‘hot chicks’ and ‘cool dudes,’” she jokes. On a serious note, though, she adds that this imbalance could eventually lead to decreased reproduction. Additionally, their food supply— green turtles love seagrass—is affected by harmful algal blooms and toxicants such as chemicals that leach out of plastics.

Harmful blue-green, red, and countless other algae are increasingly plaguing the state, Sullivan says, and the culprits are the warmer waters from climate change and waste runoff from farm fertilizer combined with leaky infrastructure that results in sewage overflow. All of this, he says, combines to “give [the algae] a nice warm environment and all the nutrients to grow.” The good news, he adds, is that the public, as well as the state government, is responding. “When the public gets fearful of going in the water and we feel the economic impact, people pay attention,” he says. “The population cares—and they should care. It’s where we live, and we need to do a better job and clean up our act.” With the world’s oceans being overfished and some sea life perishing from the results of algal bloom Research teams (pictured and coral reef disease, aquaculture has below) study our waters to try and figure out things like become a crucial undertaking to meet what is causing disease in the increasing demand for seafood. And our coral reefs.



The key is, how do we do aquaculture in a manner that is sustainable economically as well as environmentally?” —P aul W ills

although the world is eating more farm-raised fish—50 percent of all fish consumed— only 1 percent of the production comes from within the United States, according to Paul Wills, research professor and associate director of research at Harbor Branch. There’s a laundry list of reasons for the disparity, he says, but at the top of the list is regulation. “There is a whole host of regulatory agencies to ensure aquaculture is environmentally sustainable, and it’s very expensive,” explains Wills. However, Sullivan stresses the importance of the United States catching up to the rest of the world in this area, noting that 90 percent of the farm-raised fish Americans consume currently comes from Asia. “That’s a food security issue,” he says. The whole point of aquaculture is to stabilize the seafood supply. Says Wills: “The key is, how do we do aquaculture in a manner that is sustainable economically as well as environmentally?” The goal is not to compete with commercial fisheries, who are an important part of providing seafood to the population, but to fill a gap,


he adds. “Worldwide, demand for fish is more than commercial fisheries can supply.” Wills says that of the 25,000 species of fish in existence, not all are suitable for farming. More than 20 species in the United States have been identified for marine aquaculture in the near future—and many more have potential. While much of the focus at Harbor Branch is on food production and environmental sustainability, engineers and marine scientists are also assisting in the testing of national defense projects. One such project, dubbed the “grouper guard,” deploys goliath groupers as a natural defense system. It turns out these massive fish act something like guard dogs for the coast, says Sullivan. Territorial in nature, their behavior can alert us when something big is approaching. Another project relies on bioluminescent light emitted by certain organisms to detect the presence, via satellites, of submarines. “Technical innovation is a huge part of what we’ll be doing going forward,” Sullivan says. Harbor Branch isn’t alone in advancing marine research and engineering. The institute’s scientists collaborate with other notable organizations, both private and public, including Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts and Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California. “We all work together,” says Sullivan. “Researchers come here and give lectures, and we go there.” Being part of a university also gives Harbor Branch an important advantage, he adds. “It’s mutually beneficial, because we want to train the next generation of scientists and grant degrees in marine science.” To learn more about the work happening inside Harbor Branch, visit fau.edu/hboi. ❖

Ever since Scripps Research arrived in 2004, Jupiter has been at the epicenter of bioscience—and growing. Scripps alone claims an economic impact of $3 billion, and as many other companies continue to follow its lead, the still-new industry is undeniably booming. The state has invested $1.5 billion to lure biotech companies to the area, but what exactly goes on behind the doors of places like Scripps, Max Planck, and Dyadic? And how are the people working inside impacting science, especially during the pandemic? Here, meet a few local folks in the industry and learn a little bit about what they are working on.


CELL STUDIES: SCRIPPS Tina Izard was an undergrad at the University of Basel in Switzerland when she looked at a protein through an atomic-level microscope for the first time. Up until then, she knew she wanted to go into biology, but the specifics of her future goals were still somewhat murky. Viewing a protein at an atomic level is dazzling. With certain molecules stained with dye for easy detection, the molecular world looks like a mandala, patterns and spiraling proteins resembling the creation of an artist. “It was an aha moment,” Izard recalls. “All of a sudden, it was like, whoa, all of biology fits into place now and just makes sense.” Now a professor at Scripps Research in Jupiter in the Department of Integrative Structural and Computational Biology, Izard is one of about 500 professors, scientists, and other staffers working at the facility today. Scripps, which also has a campus in California, came to Florida in 2004 and now comprises 30 acres not far from Abacoa Town Center. The people inside are working daily to understand diseases and develop effective treatments. Izard’s particular work is basic in nature: She studies how cells decide to move, interact with each other, grow, and eventually die. It’s fundamental to biology, and having a better underFRONT ROW TO SCIENCE standing of it could change This past summer, Scripps launched everything about medicine. the virtual Front Row Lecture Series, This fall, Izard’s lab bewhere attendees get an inside look at came home to a cryogenic life-changing advancements in science. electron microscope, which The one-hour monthly online events are might not mean much to free and feature interactive lectures from most of us but is huge in the Scripps Research scientists on a variety world of science.

View executives had to refurbish the full schedule and register for lectures at frontrow.scripps.edu. an entire room and then


drop it in by crane. Basically, the microscope allows Izard and other scientists to cool cells to cryogenic levels, slowing them down and making the study of them easier. Without it, such studies can take months or even years; Izard’s new microscope can shorten that to days or hours. “This microscope allows me to go to another level to understand how things work,” she says. “It’s going to be like a magnet, attracting researchers and the best and brightest students.” Izard notes that the microscope is crucial for the study of pharmaceuticals and vaccines—including those being tested for COVID-19. Earlier this year, the National Science Foundation awarded Izard a rapid funding grant to conduct studies relating to the virus. “This is research we need done quickly,” stresses Izard. “This isn’t something we’re doing over the next decade. We’re talking about 2020. People need these answers now.” FROM JEANS TO VACCINES: DYADIC Mark Emalfarb likes to joke that over the last four decades, he has gone from jeans to genes. In 1979, he started his company,

Dyadic, to sell pumice stones to many of the major producers of denim jeans. They used the stones just as you might think: to stonewash jeans, making them more comfortable and stylishly aged. The problem was that the stones would break down in the big commercial washers, turning to sand and pebbles that would clog water supplies. With environmentalists calling for the stones to be banned, Emalfarb knew he needed to find an alternative. It was just theoretical at that point, but some had suggested there might be living organisms that could do the same work. “I woke up one day and said, excuse my language, ‘Screw this, I’ll make my own enzymes,’” Emalfarb recalls. He traveled to Russia, hiring 35 scientists there, and began a search for an alternative to the stones. The scientists were experts in fungus, and they found an enzyme in the Russian soil—a living organism that could naturally soften and age jeans. One of the things that makes Emalfarb’s enzyme so effective in aging jeans is the speed at which it works. Not long after the discovery, Emalfarb’s scientists figured out that the enzyme could also work in speeding up other scientific processes, like synthesizing vaccines.

Emalfarb, who was part of the team that worked to bring Scripps to Jupiter and has been one of the voices marketing the area as a new hub for biotech research, moved Dyadic to Jupiter in 1989. For the past five years, he has focused his company’s research on one specialty in particular—something that has been in the spotlight very recently because of COVID-19. It’s called zoonosis, meaning diseases that can jump from animals to humans. Of note, says Emalfarb, is Dyadic’s work with the Schmallenberg virus that began infecting European farm animals in 2011; the company helped create a highly successful vaccine. “Then the pandemic hit, and it was like, we can actually solve this problem,” Emalfarb says of the current COVID-19 virus. Scientists believe COVID-19 is a zoonosis, having jumped from bats to humans. So Dyadic began studying whether its enzyme could

help speed up vaccines to combat this new virus. Earlier this year, Emalfarb says, his company began working on potential vaccines with various research outfits, including a team from Israel, the Frederick National Laboratory, and a Scripps spinoff called Ufovax. While scientists have already identified several vaccines that may be effective against COVID-19, one major hurdle to getting them to market is the time it takes to synthesize them. While the process typically takes 50 days to grow a vaccine, Emalfarb says his enzyme allows the vaccine to be cultivated in about two weeks. “We can potentially solve the world’s needs, possibly for COVID-19 and maybe for the next pandemic,” Emalfarb says. “We jumped in headfirst.” SUPPORTING SCIENTIFIC ADVANCEMENT: MAX PLANCK Before taking a job in 2013 as chief operating officer of Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, Matthias Haury says he had never heard of Jupiter. Initially, when he’d go to scientific conferences or talk to prospective employees, it was rare any of them knew of the town. Today, Haury says Jupiter has a solid reputation among the scientific community, not necessarily for


its size compared to other tech hubs but for its collection of renowned experts. The German nonprofit research group Max Planck opened its first North American location right next to Scripps Research in 2012, cementing the area as a hotbed for bioscience. “The campus itself grew into a major hub, partially because of Scripps’ growth,” says Haury. “Bioscience centers typically take five years or so to really start growing. We are really accumulating a mass of research excellence that’s hard to beat.” Max Planck is a bit unique in that it doesn’t have set parameters of study; instead, the institute provides its labs and equipment to scientists from other research institutes, including Scripps. In essence, Max Planck is playing a crucial role in bringing the sharpest scientific minds to the area and supporting them in their work. Through its Max Planck Academy, as well as an honors program with Florida Atlantic University, the institute offers students the chance to study alongside working scientists. Among the many scientists working with Max Planck is Michael Farzan, co-chairman of the Scripps Research Department of Immunology and Microbiology and a coronavirus expert. In June, Farzan co-authored a paper that made international headlines when he discovered a COVID-19 variant that significantly increased the virus’s ability to infect cells. Given the prominence of great researchers like Farzan in our area, it is quite possible Jupiter could be part of the discovery of a vaccine for COVID-19.

Rendering of the new Beacon Pharmaceutical research facility soon to be built in Jupiter

BIOSCIENCE INCUBATOR: BEACON PHARMACEUTICAL Robert Mino likes to think of himself as a connector. He’s not a scientist and hasn’t invented any kind of miracle cure, but he thinks maybe someday his work will make it possible for someone else to do just that. As vice president of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, Mino’s focus is bringing “life sciences” jobs to the area by attracting new companies and encouraging the existing ones to expand. He does that by making connections— one tech company to another, relocating companies to realtors and landowners. At any one time, Mino says he is working on luring maybe 40 different companies or research firms. And any one of them, he says, just might have the next big breakthrough. One of the newest kids on the block is Beacon Pharmaceutical. For the past two years, the county had been trying to bring the New York–based biotech company to town. Beacon finally committed this past January, after the county offered $1.1 million in incentives. In exchange, Beacon plans to build a 150,000-square-foot research facility on a 9-acre property in Jupiter (just west of Florida’s Turnpike on Indiantown Road) to study immunology, aging, and nervous system diseases. Beacon says its new facility will be a bioscience incubator, working together with more than 50 companies and bringing at least 240 new jobs to the area. As more and more research companies and institutions move to town, Jupiter is fast becoming one of the most respected bioscience areas in the nation. “It’s extremely impactful that we

have this caliber of researcher in our community,” Mino says. This is especially true since the COVID-19 pandemic, when the town’s expertise became clear to many not only in the United States but around the globe. “Fortuitously, Scripps Jupiter happens to have two of the top experts on this issue,” says Mino. “We’re talking about researchers who worked on SARS and MERS and already had the expertise for COVID-19. The people working right here in Jupiter have the opportunity to change the world in a very large way.” ❖

1000 Wishes Campaign

Angel Crossing Enrichment Center

to build an Enrichment Center on campus

Coming Soon

KidSanctuary Campus Making a difference in the lives of local foster care children HISTORY OF KIDSANCTUARY CAMPUS KidSanctuary Campus was established in 2009 by local Philanthropist, Connie M. Frankino and today has four debtfree cottages on a secure 10-acre campus in West Palm Beach for local at-risk foster care children who receive 24-hour care in a family style home, until they are reunited with parents, adopted, or age out of the system. Today, more than ever, this campus is a vital resource to our community due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the increased need for the placement of foster care children. MISSION Our mission is to ensure that each child that lives on campus receives the benefits of a sense of belonging and permanency in a caring and positive environment that nurtures self-esteem and hope. WHATS HAPPENING NOW KidSanctuary Campus is reaching out to local community leaders for support to help us to complete and name the campus and build an Enrichment Center. The new Angel Crossing Enrichment Center will be a refuge where intervention programs, educational tutoring, case management, mentoring, social initiatives and family visitations will be scheduled for the children living in our cottages. IMPACT To date over 100 children have resided on campus with some of them staying as long as six years. The children are some of the most vulnerable in the foster care system and they come to our cottages with mental, physical and educational challenges. Many of them are behind in their academic performances and some are at least two years behind their current grade level. The new Enrichment Center will empower the children and give them the space and tools they need to enable them

to be able to do their work at grade level. Our Community Partners will design and schedule programs that will further enhance their social and emotional well being, giving them clear direction and vision for a brighter tomorrow. SUPPORT THE COMPLETION OF THE CAMPUS AND THE ANGEL CROSSING ENRICHMENT CENTER Proud to announce that we have broken ground to build the new Enrichment Center and are in the final Phase of construction in our Development Plan. We are happy to report that we received our first 1 million-dollar gift toward our 3.5 million dollar goal and have raised another $500K in pledges towards this 1000 Wishes Campaign. Our greatest wish is to have a matching 1 million dollar donor that will name the campus and help us complete the final Phase of our Development Plan. We also have other naming opportunities available at different donor levels in the Enrichment Center and throughout the campus. MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF LOCAL FOSTER CARE CHILDREN This is a time of great need in our nation and our foster care system is in crises. Please join our 1000 Wishes Campaign and become an Ambassador of KidSanctuary Campus and leave a legacy of hope for local foster care children.

A sampling of dishes from the new Brick & Barrel in Abacoa

Movin’ on Up


hef David Schroeder grew up in the area, so when he relocated his gastropub, Brick & Barrel, from Lake Park to Abacoa this past June, it felt like coming home. Schroeder’s culinary passions are wide-ranging: He has worked at sushi bars and Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, California, and he has owned both an Italian restaurant and a German beer garden. For the new location (in the space formerly occupied by Aaron’s Table), Schroeder brought in Thomas Op’t Holt as chef de cuisine, and together they crafted a new, refined menu.

Depicted here, Scotch egg and oxtail shepherd’s pie give a new twist to English pub classics, kale Caesar combines locally sourced greens with a vegan dressing made with chickpeas and natural sweeteners, butcher’s cut introduces locals to the joys of teres major beef, and fish ranges from day boat catch to Loch Duart salmon. “I want to elevate pub food and deliver an experience people aren’t expecting, something that will overwhelm them,” says Schroeder.” 1153 Town Center Drive Suite 101, Jupiter; brickandbarrelpub.com; 561.623.0916 —Mark Spivak

EVOLVED Cooking At Palm Beach Gardens’ Stage, Indian dishes take on elements from all around the world, courtesy of its well-traveled chef

Why is Indian cuisine so popular in America right now? It takes a few generations. As more immigrants arrive, the


public develops a greater understanding of what a country’s cooking is really about—that’s what happened with Italian food. [Indian] chefs are now doing a better job of presenting complex recipes, rather than just dishing out curry. Also, a big factor is that people are more conscious of what they’re eating, and Indian food is very friendly to vegetarians and vegans. Clockwise from top left: Stage’s interior sets the tone for diverse small-plate offerings; Chef Pushkar Marathe; Kolhapuri chicken


You describe Stage as “Indian-inspired” rather than Indian. What’s the difference? I wanted to reflect my travel experiences and my exposure to many different cultures and to celebrate flavors with a nod to my Indian roots. As I always say, Stage is like a big tree. The branches are my travels all over the world, but the roots are deep in India.



hef Pushkar Marathe has circumnavigated the globe perfecting his craft. He left India in his twenties to train in Switzerland before embarking on a journey cooking in kitchens throughout the Caribbean and the Middle East. He was a protégé of Dean James Max and worked with Nivan Patel at Ghee Indian Restaurant in Miami. Prior to opening Stage (pronounced “staahj”) in Palm Beach Gardens, he was executive chef at Meat Market in Palm Beach, where he met his present partner, Andy Dugard. We caught up with Chef Marathe to chat about his new restaurant, its influences, and switching gears during the pandemic.

What made you decide to open in Palm Beach Gardens? Andy Dugard and I wanted to return to the area. I made 10 specials every day at Meat Market, and I discovered that customers really responded to Indian spices. We felt that the clientele in

LOCAL UNPARALLELED EXCELLENCE Palm Beach Gardens was sophisticated and well-traveled, and there were more families that lived there year-round.

A Palm Beach County Treasure

For a newcomer to Indian food, how would you describe the health benefits? We use butter and cream very sparingly, just as they do in the Mediterranean diet, and most of our menu is naturally gluten-free. It’s not just conscious eating but also conscious cooking. People who are afraid of spice should understand that Indian food isn’t hot; it’s much more subtle than that. I grew up eating no spice at all. Have you developed a network of local farmers and purveyors? We’re using local ingredients whenever we can, but we’ve also planted a garden right outside the restaurant. We have 30 different varieties of plants so we can source herbs and botanicals to use in the kitchen and in our bar program. The most important one to me is Tulsi basil, which is completely different from other types of basil and has a sacred role in Hinduism. Growing it near the entrance frames the restaurant in a feeling of health and well-being.

How has your menu changed since opening? We feel like we opened the restaurant three different times! We had an ambitious opening menu, but then we had to shift to takeout during the quarantine. We were forced to focus on dishes that would hold up until people got the food home; we focused on a variety of curries, and our customers got used to that. Now that we’re open again [for dine-in service], we’re offering a mix of our opening and take-out menus. Who’s the one person you would most like to cook for? I would choose my mom because she has been the biggest source of inspiration for me. I grew up watching her make amazing meals every day. She’s also my toughest critic, so she keeps me on my toes. What does the future hold? I’m not interested in a restaurant empire—less is more. I’d be grateful to have one really great restaurant and make people happy. The kitchen is open at Stage because we want to be able to see the expressions on our guests’ faces. When you please people, that’s better than any accolade on the wall. And I want to increase the talent pool in the area. My goal is to inspire a new generation of chefs and give them a decent, gratifying working environment. 2000 PGA Blvd. Suite 5502, Palm Beach Gardens; stagepga.com; 561.408.3685 ❖

Pasta PRIMAVERA In July, Chef Erik Pettersen of Evo Italian in Tequesta wowed Guy Fieri and a panel of judges with his fried gnocchi—and brought home a win on Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games. Here, he shares the recipe for another delicious (and lighter) pasta dish—packed with veggies and full of flavor. INGREDIENTS 1 cup mushrooms, chopped 1 cup asparagus, chopped 2 cloves of fresh garlic 2 medium zucchini or 1 large zucchini, cut into thin strips 2 yellow squash, cut into thin strips 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Fresh Italian parsley or basil 2 pounds gluten-free or whole-wheat pasta 15 cherry tomatoes, halved ½ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese DIRECTIONS STEP 1: Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. On a large, heavy baking sheet, toss all of the vegetables with the oil, salt, pepper, and fresh herbs to coat. Transfer half of the vegetable mixture to another baking sheet and arrange evenly over the two baking sheets. Bake until the asparagus is tender and the vegetables begin to brown, stirring after the first 10 minutes—about 20 minutes total. STEP 2: Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling, salted water until al dente (tender but still firm to the bite—about 8 minutes). Drain, reserving one cup of the pasta water to add richness to the sauce. STEP 3: In the same pot, toss the pasta with the water and enough olive oil to moisten. Combine the pasta with the vegetable mixture and cherry tomatoes in a large bowl and toss. Season the pasta with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the Pecorino Romano and serve immediately. evoitalian.com ❖

B E WAR E PH ON Y ‘S TE M C E LL’ PI TC H E S Stem cells have an amazing potential to help heal injury and disease. Sadly, a rapidly increasing number of unscrupulous clinics are popping up offering treatments using products derived from amnion, placenta, and umbilical cord tissue, and calling them “stem cell” treatments. Currently there is NO FDA cleared or approved product derived from amnion, placenta, or umbilical cord tissue that contains ANY live viable stem cells. Clinics offering “stem cell” treatments from these products are committing outright fraud. And they’re defrauding unsuspecting and desperate patients out of thousands of dollars per treatment, often using high pressure sales seminars. Furthermore, most of the clinicians providing such treatments have little or no training in Regenerative Medicine. Here’s the bottom line: The only FDA cleared way to get live viable stem cells is from your OWN body, either from bone marrow or from fat, which we do in-office.

O U R APPROAC H : E X PE R I E N C E D & TR AN S PA R E N T Dr. Paul Tortland, founder of the New England Stem Cell Institute is a nationally recognized leader in Regenerative Medicine. We have been doing stem cell treatments ethically and responsibly since 2008 and were the first in all of New England and among the first in the whole country. Few practices have our level of skill and experience. Call for more info or visit our website, www.JupiterStemCells.com.
