BEYOND The Agents







hen your real estate agent won’t invite you to meet their marketing team, there likely isn’t one. When you visit Waterfront Properties corporate office it will be obvious that Waterfront is as much a marketing firm with expert knowledge and a budget to focus on a sale of your property as it is a real estate brokerage.

The Waterfront Advantage The last word that could ever be used to describe Waterfront Properties is ordinary. At Waterfront’s marketing headquarters, a diligent and enthusiastic staff works hand-in-hand with real estate agents. Together, they collaborate to expertly market their sellers’ properties and reach buyers all over the world. Don’t assume this is the norm in every real estate office. David Abernathy, Business Manager at Waterfront, says “my colleagues at other brokerages are envious of Waterfront’s 20+ person marketing team because we don’t need to outsource key marketing projects.” The company’s dedicated marketing budget provides the marketing team with the most up-to-date marketing technology, equipment and strategies. How? Here is a glimpse behind the scenes…

Photo Expertise/Graphic Design Team In the digital arena, Waterfront’s in-house photographers, graphic designers and photo editors are highly trained and work with agents to understand home features that buyers are looking for. Then the team is able to highlight the best features of sellers’ properties in all marketing materials. Using specific, proven strategies, they’re able to captivate buyers’ interest with photos and designs that make an impact.

Internet/SEO/Social Media Team In today’s world of digital giants like Amazon and Facebook, Waterfront knows the importance of web dominance. With a dedicated team focusing on the Internet and digital marketing, Waterfront’s websites consistently appear at the top of Google. Their sellers’ properties are promoted on thousands of local, national and international real estate websites and social media channels, creating maximum online exposure for homes to the right audiences all over the world.

Email Marketing Team Through use of email marketing, Waterfront is able to communicate directly with thousands of potential buyers looking for properties similar to your home’s location and price range. Waterfront’s agents often know about properties before they are on the market which allows buyers to hear about them before they appear in MLS.

Print Production Team Waterfront’s team of production specialists and graphic designers collaborate to create high quality marketing materials such as brochures, postcards, local publications and special mail pieces. Their massive, industrial-sized printer allows the team to create all materials in-house and in a timely fashion. Behind the scenes, the marketing team assists Waterfront agents to solely focus on quickly connecting sellers and buyers. Owners/Brokers from many other areas have come to Waterfront to learn from Rob Thomson, Waterfront’s managing partner, about how the marketing team is able to free up agents’ time to focus entirely on finding buyers for their sellers’ properties. When deciding to sell or buy property, Waterfront invites you to visit their marketing headquarters to meet with Thomson and the marketing team. They promise it will be anything but ordinary.

Support. A powerful element in fighting cancer. With a cancer diagnosis, every day matters. When Chris Manis was diagnosed with stage 3b esophageal cancer, Florida Cancer Specialists started his treatment within a week. Years after his cancer battle, Chris and his son, Greyson, are inseparable. And with a new set of twins, Chris and his wife are ready for the next chapter of their lives. “As my family grows, I am forever grateful to Florida Cancer Specialists and the care they gave me, so I can continue to care for my family.”

Living to Serve


n the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian’s destruction to parts of the Bahamas, and what some are calling the longest siege of violent, destructive weather unleashed on a single location, it’s touching to see the outpouring of support and humanitarian efforts being offered. South Florida has rallied and come to the rescue, offering everything from basic supplies to aiding in major relief efforts, to hosting Bahamians who have fled their ravaged islands. Certainly, this hurricane hit close to home. Knowing the Category 5 monster could have easily not made the turn to the

north and just as easily wreaked havoc on us, we sympathize and relate to their plight and mobilize to help. But it’s no surprise, as this altruism is engrained in our way of life, in the very fabric of the Palm Beaches’ culture. In this issue, we showcase a few unsung heroes selflessly serving others while simultaneously rewriting someone’s life story. We’re thankful for these, and all the many unsung heroes, tirelessly working to make the Palm Beaches a better place, and we hope their altruism will inspire you to work for a cause you believe in. If you’re looking to align yourself with a worthy charity, look no further than these pages to find a plethora of non-profits that need your help. With our annual Charity Datebook, a compilation of tri-county charities and their fundraising events for the year, you’re sure to find a place where you belong, where your heart and soul connect, and where you can make a difference. Don’t forget each issue can be viewed digitally, so if you don’t have your hard copy, go to our websites or digital editions to reference any content. Synchronized swimming is back with a vengeance. Already making a splash at the Hollywood pool party circuit, the Aqualillies—an aquatic synchronized performance group—have been stealing the spotlight at celebrity events for almost a decade. This bevy of beauties has



performed in music videos, TV shows, ad campaigns, launch parties and has even been hired for weddings. Working in perfect harmony, the water squad combines the athleticism of professional athletes with the grace of ballet dancers to execute flawless pool performances. We caught up with some of South Florida’s ‘Lillies as they don hot fashions for our even hotter tropical climate in Sartorial Swim on page 38. We’re excited to be back for yet another season in South Florida, and we have an amazing editorial lineup for you. We thank you for your loyalty to us, for inviting us into your homes and hearts, for your incredible positive feedback, for requesting more copies for your out-of-town guests, and for frequenting the places we write about as well as our advertising partners. We live to serve you!

The Palm Beaches’ Spa & Wellness Month This month, relax and rejuvenate with a wealth of treatments and packages starting at $99. Portions of proceeds benefit five local charities in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


PURE Cell Facial Stem cells are controversial in medicine, but not in beauty—at least not when it comes to the PURE Cell Facial available at the PURE Spa inside the Pelican Grand on Fort Lauderdale beach. The live roseroot stem cells used during this 80-minute service travel deep into the pores to regenerate skin and stimulate collagen. The spa is one of only two locations to offer the treatment, which uses products from Maria Åkerberg. Products are deepened into the skin using a mask that feels as thick as the molds orthodontists stick in your mouth to create retainers. The treatment makes the skin look tighter, and results can last four to six weeks. (2000 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954.556.7600) - Alyssa Morlacci

Quartz Sand Bed Forget everything you thought you knew about a relaxing massage and prepare yourself for ultimate bliss with the help of a quartz sand bed. Lucky for South Floridians, The Spa at Auberge Beach in Fort Lauderdale offers the award-winning, stateof-the-art Gharieni Quartz Treatment table (only one of two in South Florida) known to ionize the air, which supports the immune system and helps purify the body. During a massage, tight muscles are soothed with quartz sand poultices, targeting specific areas of concern. Guests interested in trying the bed can do so when booking the Resort and Balance Massage, the Quartz Sand Sound and CBD Wrap, or the Quartz Massage with Amethyst Oil. (2200 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 754.900.4067) - Melissa Puppo



Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach Take part in the 100-minute Pink Oceana Experience Package, which features a warm scalp treatment and massage and warmed application of a detoxifying ancient ocean clay wrap mixed with exfoliating Himalayan salt, all followed by a full-body Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. The treatment also includes your choice of sparkling rosé or antioxidant-infused hibiscus tea and a Himalayan Salt Detox Bath Soak to take home. Enjoy pool, beach and fitness room access, in addition to a voucher for breakfast or lunch, and a 10-percent discount on all spa retail. (2800 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach; 561.582.2800; $390)

Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa For a facial that’s ideal for all skin types, book the Si-Rose Facial Treatment. During the 50-minute treatment, rose extracts and rosehip oil help skin to restore vital hydration and balance. It’s then followed by a warmed rose quartz massage to help increase circulation. (3800 N. Ocean Drive, Riviera Beach; 561.340.1755; $99)

The Sanctuary Salon & Spa Get the best of both worlds with the Fire & Ice Sensation Package. This treatment includes a harmonized, rhythmic massage utilizing hot and cold remedies designed to reduce stress, relax and detoxify the body. Organic oil blends are then warmed for a custom therapeutic conditioning treatment before finishing up with a designer blowout. (101 N. Clematis St., Ste.115, West Palm Beach; 561.721.9648; $99)

News & Gourmet Coffee and culture intersect inside The Breakers Palm Beach By Melissa Puppo


t The Breakers Palm Beach, everything is done in grandiose style. From its 20,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor spa to the architectural splendor of The Circle, there’s a reason the iconic property earns awards and accolades year after year. So, when it came time to remodel one of its boutiques in late 2018, News & Gourmet, the hotel turned to the exceptional Michael Neuman and Associates design firm to get the job done. The boutique’s former dark wooden palette transformed into a bright, modern backdrop for the shop’s selection of gifts and home decor from around the world. Locals and resort guests alike can enjoy seeking and finding new treasures to bring home. Take for example the homeware brand Dinosaur Designs, created by a husband-and-wife duo from Australia. “Moody” blues and whites swirl into a vibrant coloration on resin stone bowls, platters and serving utensils. Then there’s Primitive Twig based out of New York. The artists collect antique American, French and German doll heads along with vintage tins, wind-up toys and salt shakers, and assembles them into elaborate, one-of-a-kind creations like candlesticks.

Shop an array of home decor paying homage to rainforests to equestrian life, plus a line of vibrant safari art sculptures made out of recycled flip flops from Swahili Modern. Shoppers can stock up on numerous items from specialty greeting cards to Italian linen hostess napkins, as well as purchase a bottle of the hotel’s famous private-label wine blended by the property’s master sommelier. But before uncorking a bottle, stop by the shop’s new coffee bar. “When we changed out News & Gourmet our goal was to make this a real Seattle-style coffee shop,” says John Zoller, senior vice president of retail operations. That meant bringing a Modbar system to the coffee shop to pump out espresso and pour-over favorites. And, of course, there’s no News & Gourmet without its bookstore. Browse a handful of bestsellers and the latest magazines before heading out to the Palm Courtyard or the pool. Or snag a coffee table book from Assouline to add that final comforting touch in your home.

Palm Beachers need not worry, though; several island favorites will remain like General Tso’s chicken, Smoked Char Sui Ribs (crispy garlic and scallion) and the Palm Beach Fried Rice with bites of king crab and gold leaf poached egg. And, of course, there’s the whole Peking duck. It takes two days to dry and roast before it’s carved and then served with a scallion salad, housemade hoisin sauce and a choice of steamed buns or pancakes. At press time, Hai House planned to open a sister takeout spot for those interested in grab-and-go options. Diners can expect a menu that focuses on traditional takeout staples like noodles, fast-casual Asian specialties and sushi.

Kendall and Libby Glazer 20 things to know about the stylish sisters


oveted by globetrotters, millennials and OCD orga14 nizers, Stoney Clover Lane’s playful patches and mélange of handbags in cool textures and cheery shades provide endless opportunity for sartorial self-expression. In 2009, Palm Beachers Kendall and Libby Glazer were 17 and 15, respectively, when they hatched the lifestyle brand that now counts celebs like Jessica Alba and Miley Cyrus as clients. Original offerings included bespoke, beaded charm bracelets the sisters hand-strung in their bedrooms for family, friends and classmates. When songbirds like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber (yes, Justin Bieber) were photographed wearing their calorie-free wrist candy, they knew they had a hit on their hands. While pursuing degrees at Tulane University, Kendall and Libby swapped taking summer internships for opening accessory pop-ups around Los Angeles and New York City instead. Paying homage to their love of wanderlust and personalization, the duo debuted a collection of cheeky patches (think varsity letters, unicorns and retro-inspired travel stickers) in 2015, followed by a line of travel bags, pouches and accessories in citrusy and tropical hues. Taking a cue from their island upbringing, they opened their first brick-and-mortar store in November 2018 at The Royal Poinciana Plaza, then an outpost on Main Street in East Hampton six months later. Imbued with a relaxed, beachy vibe, both boutiques house signature wares as well as brands and products the Glazers love, like Lele Sadoughi headbands, Patchology masks and Petite ‘n Pretty kids makeup. Comfortably ensconced in their NoMad neighborhood office, 15 the congenial twenty-something CEOs remain intimately involved in every facet of their business. While most responsibilities are shared, each shines in her own way. “Libby really enjoys 1 discovering and curating third-party product for the stores, and I love chatting with customers directly in real-time,” Kendall says. Today, when they’re not reviewing store designs or dreaming up limited-edition collaborations with companies like Disney, the sisters relish visiting their parents in Palm Beach and New Orleans, supporting charities close to their hearts and spending time with their dogs, Tiger and Eloise. — Kerry Shorr

Carving Their Own Path CATE KELLY AND KIM VANDERPOL SHARE THEIR SURFBOARDS (AND COFFEE) WITH LOCALS. By Tracy Marcello Photography by Kenrick Mills


t’s not often one meets their business partner when they’re 2 years old, but that’s how it went for Jupiter natives and lifelong friends Cate Kelly and Kim Vanderpol. As next-door neighbors living across the street from Jupiter’s beaches, it seemed the two were destined for a life near the water—and one another. “We were always playing in the ocean,” says Vanderpol, who along with Kelly owns and operates Carve Surf and Coffee in Tequesta. “We started surfing competitively in ESA and NSSA in our early teens, and we would see how the Californian and Hawaiian girls were surfing. That was the one thing we looked forward to, and it stayed a hobby and overall lifestyle.” The friends often reminisced on those times after choosing careers at IT companies, but something kept pulling them back to the water. One evening, Kelly and Vanderpol decided to write down everything they spent their lives enjoying and three things kept reappearing: surfing, the beach and communal rituals, like drinking coffee. “We needed to take life into our own hands and do something fun,” Vanderpol recalls of the business plan they created after that initial brainstorming session. “The coffee community is all about sharing time together, and the surf community is really tight-knit and extends out of the water. We felt the two fit together really nicely.” Carve, which opened in January, blends the duo’s passions into a coffee shop and surf club—a program that gives members access to nearly two dozen surfboards (along with a board bag, recycled leashes and fins) whenever the surf’s up. The recycled foam and plant-based resin boards were custom-built with the environment in mind. “Historically, surfboards have been made with materials that ultimately pollute our oceans,” Vanderpol says. “Over time, people developed plant-based resins and discovered that you can ride a surfboard made with recycled 32


foam instead of virgin foam.” Vanderpol and Kelly worked with two local shapers who created thicker boards specifically for Florida’s smaller waves using eco-friendly materials the women helped source. “[The shapers] had never used these materials before, so it was cool because we were introducing them to more sustainable ways to shape their surfboards,” Vanderpol says. The inventory is ecoboard-certified through California non-profit Sustainable Surf, and now, members can enjoy riding the waves on ocean-friendly boards without shelling out hundreds of dollars for one that may not suit their needs or standards. “We don’t sell the boards; we have this membership aspect,” Vanderpol explains of the club, which costs $99 a month or $45 for a day. “It’s sort of like a boat club, but for surfboards. There’s an experimental aspect to it that makes it fun and helps people discover new [boards] that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to try.”

And then there’s the coffee. The owners wanted to bring something different to the area while still offering a South Florida product, and Miami’s Panther Coffee seemed like a perfect fit. Pair that with empanadas from Tartastic in Boca Raton, and vegan, glutenfree pastries from Importico’s Bakery Cafe in Stuart, along with a Wednesday evening yoga class, and the duo offers a space surfers and non-surfers alike can enjoy. “We are really thoughtful and specific about the items we carry,” Vanderpol says. “We have two requirements, either that it’s locally made or sustainably made. It’s taken us a while to build up our offerings, and we still have a lot of room to grow.” For now, the women run the business solo and take turns hitting the beach they grew up loving. “We split every day so one person has the morning off and one person has the afternoon off, and usually the other person is in the water,” Vanderpol says. “They might show up to their shift with wet, sandy hair.” gulfstreammediagroup.com

Slip into Serenity at The Shore Club The only Long Bay Beach property in Providenciales offers an ideal getaway for guests wanting to come and go unnoticed. By A LY S S A M O R L A C C I


t’s curious how at The Shore Club in Turks and Caicos during an early morning spent sipping coffee on the balcony, there is no people watching to be done. There’s only the show the sun puts on as it rises above the east shore on Long Bay Beach, making the water below glitter like sequins under stage lights. Sightings of staff seem rare, but this isn’t because they aren’t there. They appear when you need them; ghosts when you don’t. It’s the reason you’ve never seen the maintenance worker before until he knocks on your suite door to fix that flickering light bulb you didn’t notice until now. High levels of service here are accomplished using a tunnel system beneath the resort, much like the method used at theme parks like Disney World. Though, this secret passageway has two uses. It doubles as a walkway for resort employees and an entrance for visitors of the property who want to arrive in secrecy. High-profile guests can be shuttled from the parking lot straight to one of the on-property villas that house up to 14 guests at a time. Arriving through the basement, an elevator lifts them to the first floor by the kitchen, which is fully stocked in advance of their stay. A resort chef can prepare intimate meals inside the expansive, open space



while guests enjoy their pool, an outdoor shower, courtyard and terrace. Other perks include private butler services to kiteboarding lessons. Since the first villas debuted nearly two years ago, guests have ranged from A-list actors, to wedding parties, to swimsuit companies shooting their next catalog. At press time, the final two villas of the six-villa collection were on track to open by December, and while they have their apparent advantages, guests of the 106 ocean-view junior suites, one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, and two penthouses on property are equally spoiled. There are four on-site pools; a wellness center; the Dune Spa; and Sui-Ren, a Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant serving a variety of dishes from sushi rolls to ceviche. The Caribbean-chic property was developed by Hartling Group, which is known for a signature style that seamlessly blends interiors and exteriors. This theme can be found at sister properties on the island, including The Sands at Grace Bay and The Palms Turks and Caicos. Guests at The Shore Club can visit both resorts using a free shuttle service that picks up at the lobby. (above) An onproperty villa can accommodate up to 14 guests.


Before departing from the island, guests should make a reservation at The Palms’ Parallel 23. The al fresco restaurant looks like a European courtyard, and the menu is indulgent with appetizers like tuna tartar and chicken satay, to main courses like the Caicos Bank Grouper served on a bed of chickpea, turmeric cream and arugula. Turndown service at The Shore Club includes a neatly tucked bed with slippers set to each side, a bottle of water and a chocolate on the nightstand, and a quote on a square piece of cardstock. “Live the story you want to tell,” one says. Of course, those staying at the resort have already met this challenge.

Family fortunes: Keeping the family together through generational transitions

Generations of families have wrestled with the same issue–how to keep the family together through generational transitions and transfer of significant wealth while respecting the needs and opinions of all generations. Families are concerned about more than being able to manage, grow and sustain financial assets, or the challenges of operating a family business or enterprise. They want to nurture and maintain family ties from generation to generation as the family grows and changes. Talking about wealth and developing a shared vision and purpose for the future can be challenges, but they are not insurmountable. Common themes are often raised, including: • Maintaining family harmony and making decisions together about shared assets while respecting differences of opinion. • Supporting younger generations so they can follow their passions and maintain a sense of purpose in the presence of family success. • Preparing younger generations to be engaged stewards of family wealth or creators of new opportunities for the family enterprise. Each generation may have its own set of concerns. Some family members may feel that too much focus on family wealth may create a sense of entitlement or lead to a lack of ambition among younger generations. Parents may have concerns about selecting one of their children to lead the family business when they love all their family equally. There may be concerns about the financial impact if children get divorced, or what 1 2

might happen if the family business is taken in new and different directions. Younger generations may have their own questions and concerns. Will they be able to live up to family expectations? Can they tell their parents they want to pursue a different career and not join the family business or family office? How will they work with other family members? Will senior executives in the business or family office respect them? Take steps to ensure a successful transition. Studies exploring 100-year-old family businesses1 reveal common themes for successful transitions.2 Primarily they require intent, communication and preparation. “The glue that keeps a family together is a mix of shared values and shared commitment to success,” says John Smyth. The results demonstrate that focusing on relationships within the family is as important as business resilience and success. Open the lines of communication. Finding a solution requires input from all generations. Louise Armour advises families to “...focus on strengthening and preserving family connections. They are the key to long-term success over generations.” Establish a set of principles that resonate with the entire family. Start by defining the meaning of “wealth.” Most people define wealth as more than their net worth. Happiness, satisfaction, good health and helping others who are less fortunate are some of the terms people use to define wealth. Define who is “family.” Are spouses included? What happens when there’s


a divorce? Are partners or significant others included in the definition? It’s a continuous and evolving journey. Some families choose to create a family constitution, which is not a legally enforceable agreement, but more of a “family pact” that brings clarity and offers a guide for working together. Create a sense of responsibility through shared decision-making. “Success revolves around developing a family mission statement and a set of guidelines that will help when conflicts occur,” advises Sal Tiano. Having a plan in place enables families to build confidence and help individual members become stewards for future generations. This process begins with communication and discussion, as well as formulating a way to make decisions together. Rely on a strong and experienced advisor. Working with an experienced advisor who is knowledgeable about the needs of families when it comes to generational transitions is essential to achieving a successful outcome for the entire family.

Morgan Securities are members of an industry-recognized team with a collective 85plus years of wealth management experience.

o doubt the word “hero” has gotten as watered down as a glass of lemonade left in the Florida sun. This idea that there are those who walk among us lifting others up at their own expense, who do good deeds just for the sake of good deeds—do they actually still exist?


Yes, it turns out, there still are legit heroes. We’re talking about the people who toil every day and give up their nights and weekends to see a cause they care about thrive. In fact, we’ve found a few, our neighbors from north Palm Beach County. Here, friends, are a few bonafide heroes.






hen Paco Vélez was a kid growing up in Eagle Pass, Texas, he had a grandfather who owned a modest hotel. Locals knew they could go there when they were desperate, and Vélez recalls seeing his grandfather mowing someone’s lawn or painting their house—odd jobs or small gifts that helped them get by. His grandfather didn’t talk about it much, but Vélez says he picked up on something. “I saw how peaceful and happy he was serving others,” he says. When Vélez stumbled into a job at the food bank in San Antonio in 2000, he thought back on his grandfather’s sense of peace while helping other people. Vélez found it himself in those early days at the pantry. “I realized that this is my calling. This is where I want to be. This is where I should be,” he says. In 2012, Vélez took over as President and CEO of Feeding



South Florida, a non-profit that provides food to 300-plus agencies that help the hungry, 47 of them in northern Palm Beach County. Here, we have an odd dichotomy, a county that has both vast wealth and poverty; we also have a distinct connection to food, being the largest agriculture county east of the Mississippi. Many of those who need food provided by non-profits also pick produce in Palm Beach County fields, serve it at our restaurants and stock the shelves in our supermarkets. It’s easy, Vélez says, to live where we do and assume nobody goes hungry. “People look at a place like Jupiter and think it’s OK because it’s generally wealthy. But there are many people here who live below the poverty level.” Aside from the massive undertaking of delivering 50 million pounds and counting of food, Vélez says it’s his mission to change that misconception, to show that hunger looks the same no matter where you live.




ust recently, a 13-year-old girl handed Karen Hilo an illustrated booklet she had made. It’s part of the counseling process at the non-profit Hilo runs, an exercise where kids tell their stories through pictures to process tragedy. The father who’s now in prison had sexually abused the girl and her brother. Hilo looked through the booklet, detailing the awfulness of the girl’s young life, and then saw something she wasn’t expecting. “I get to the end, and this little 13-year-old girl is saying she’s not a victim; that she’s going to be a victor,” Hilo says. “That was her words: I am a victor.” It was a moment for Hilo that highlighted why she took on such a tough assignment nearly four years ago. Back then, she was a consultant who helped non-profits that were often distressed improve operating efficiency and performance. Center for Family Services of Palm Beach County, which provides mental health services and parenting education to at-risk children, adults and families,


brought her on to complete a comprehensive program evaluation. Hilo was so taken by the mission that she agreed to come on as CEO. Having grown up in a family wrecked by divorce, she knew the need of mental health services. But the organization was facing a financial collapse without something drastic. At the time, it was running a homeless shelter that was draining nearly all of the donations, and so Hilo worked with the County and a leading homelessness prevention agency to get back on track, allowing Center for Family Services to concentrate on one core mission of providing mental health services. “It was nothing short of a miracle that we were able to find someone to take over the shelter,” Hilo says. Now, the organization is looking at what’s next, considering adding the ability to do counseling via video conferencing, which would allow it to greatly increase its reach. She says it’s a lot like that 13-year-old girl who became a victor: They get to rewrite the future chapters of their story.






f there’s one thing you’ll hear regularly about working for nonprofits, it’s that it is a high-burnout-rate job, where it’s too easy to get downtrodden by failures from watching people who just can’t seem to climb out of poverty or homelessness. But not Kathy Spencer, who spent 22 years as a social worker for Goodwill Industries with a bubbly, always-happy approach, forever a sentence or two away from a laugh. “I guess I’ve always been an optimist and able to see the good side,” she says, with, of course, a laugh. Her last day on the job was Sept. 30. Retiring at 68 years old, she’s taking on a new job of helping raise her grandkids. “The pay stinks, but the benefits are wonderful,” she says. Spencer isn’t really sure how she ended up doing her job for so long. She grew up in a Vermont town “with more cows than



people” and never suffered from the poverty that she’s seen in so many clients over the past two decades. “I had it pretty easy in my life, and that’s not true for everyone I work with,” she says. In the end, she retired as a vice president, but her favorite part has always been working with the people Goodwill serves, trying to solve the puzzle of how to help the homeless get back on their feet. She has seen many of them fail—lots of them she thought would make it come back—but yet, she says she has always thrived on the ones who find a way out. She says her job was fairly simple: to find out what her clients’ hopes and dreams were, and often, to help them for the first time figure out that they can achieve them. “To see the success of people who have not had much support in their past, it’s a wonderful thing,” she says. “It’s a blessing.”




here was a moment not long ago when Brenda and Fred Teets came to a sudden stop outside Publix. In front of them were two kids, and the couple weren’t sure what would happen next. Nine years before, the Teets were at church one Sunday when a fellow parishioner stood up and begged for help. A new non-profit called Family Promise desperately needed volunteers. Retired for 21 years and living in West Palm Beach, the Teets—Fred (80) and Brenda (79)—started doing what they could at the charity, which helps homeless families with jobs, housing and generally just getting back to normal life. “Now that we’re retired, we’re spending a large portion of our time volunteering for several organizations,” says Fred, an engineer who climbed through the ranks of DuPont back in Delaware. “But Family Promise is the thing we give the most energy because we can work directly with families.” About seven years ago now, a father of twins walked into Family Promise with a stroller, two suitcases and nothing else.


The non-profit helped him get a job, but he had nowhere for the kids to go in the afternoon. So, the Teets picked the kids up and brought them to their home. “They were on the street, the children,” Brenda recalls. “It just breaks your heart. I mean this shouldn’t happen in the United States.” As the Teets walked out of Publix recently, they saw the twins. It had been years, although they had been getting updates that they were doing well and excelling in school. The Teets stopped a minute, unsure they would recognize them. “Mr. Fred! Mrs. Brenda!” the kids yelled out, before jumping into their arms. “I’ll tell you, the tears flowed,” Brenda recalls. It is, they both say, the only reason they give so much time to helping others. “We certainly didn’t do it for recognition,” Brenda says. “We did it because it’s what you’re supposed to do.” OCTOBER 2019





arti LaTour grew up in suburban Chicago, the fourth of five siblings, with woods and horses and a loving family. She’s never been broke or hungry. LaTour says she volunteers based on a simple principle: “Everybody has to feel like they’re giving back in some way. It has to have a very personal connection and make you feel like you can bring something to the table, like you’re making a difference.” It started for LaTour in 2012 when she was at an event and someone from the upstart Palm Beach County Food Bank stopped her. The non-profit began with the CEO delivering food from his van, and it needed people who could help it scale up. LaTour realized she had two big qualifications. She had spent years in the food industry as an executive for PepsiCo, but she left that job to work for an organization that helps female-run startups get funding. She knew about food, and she knew about startups, and so she joined the food bank’s board. Seven years later, the food bank has grown to an organization that provides 5 million pounds of food annually to



those in need. But LaTour, now the board chair, says they still have a long way to go: the county remains 78 million pounds of food short of what’s needed, and 200,000 people here regularly don’t know where they’re getting their next meal. Nowadays, LaTour is on a mission to find the food bank a new location, as it long-ago outgrew the current space. “We need $3 million, and I keep joking that in our wealthy county, what’s $3 million?” Beyond just growth, LaTour says the organization also needs to change a perception of the types of people it serves. Recently, an elderly woman called the food bank to thank them for helping her. “She had survived the Holocaust, survived getting to America, and she said she would survive this, too,” LaTour says. “It makes you realize that if it can happen to this woman at her age with all she’s gone through, it can happen to anyone, at any point in your life.”

complete smile makeover with dental implants and cosmetic crowns Jacky suffered with extensive dental problems at a young age. Some of her teeth were unable to be saved. She was very self-conscious of her bad teeth and wanted a bright healthy smile that made her look and feel better. Jacky had her failing teeth replaced with dental implants and underwent a complete smile makeover with cosmetic porcelain crowns. The entire procedure was performed under IV sedation, so Jacky experienced absolutely no discomfort. Now, Jacky looks more youthful, feels healthier and experiences a whole new sense of self-confidence.

full mouth reconstruction with dental implants & permanent bridgework Linda had been losing teeth for a number of years and didn’t want to go into full dentures. She avoided smiling and was having difficulty enjoying meals. She was fearful of the dentist, but finally reached a point where she needed to find the right doctor to help her. Linda had her entire mouth restored with dental implants and permanently attached cosmetic bridgework. All the treatment was performed under IV sedation, so she never experienced any anxiety or discomfort. Now, Linda smiles with confidence, eats all the foods she likes and has a completely new outlook on life.

especially sensitive when it comes to: my 12-year-old pit bull Robin. I adopted him when he was around 5 years old. He had a brother named Batman who was adopted first. Robin had been there for over a year, so I decided I had to give him a home. That’s too long for any dog to be jailed in a cage. He instantly became my shadow, and now he’s my best friend.



When I first told my family I was going to become a professional fighter they:

If I wasn’t traveling the world fighting for a living, I’d be: somewhere working

with animals. I started volunteering with the Humane Society when I was 7. I volunteered with an equine rescue and a wildlife rescue, too. When I was little I wasn’t very good or even interested in sports like soccer. I would just sit in the middle of the soccer field and pick flowers.

In an era in which women’s sports have achieved unprecedented coverage, respect and revenue, I want everyone to know that: this is just the beginning for women in

this sport. It’s been crazy to see the evolution and just how fast it has grown. Unlike with other sports, in the UFC there is no “LUFC” or “WUFC.” We’re getting the same opportunities that the men are. (Former fighter) Ronda Rousey was actually getting paid more than any of the guys were.

orn in Canada, Gillian Robertson relocated to South Florida with her parents at the age of 7. Robertson discovered cardio-kickboxing at age 16 and immediately fell in love with combat sports. After compiling an impressive amateur record of 9-1 under the tutelage of world-renowned MMA coach Din Thomas, Robertson decided to put her dream of a veterinary career on hold to become a professional MMA fighter. Making her UFC debut in December 2017, Robertson competed on the reality TV series “The Ultimate Fighter 26.” She has fought on UFC fight cards around the world including in Las Vegas, Liverpool, São Paolo, Prague and Edmonton. A competitive grappler and animal activist, Robertson and her beloved canine companion Robin currently reside in Margate.

t was in a restaurant with several TVs showing sports. There was no sound, but we knew instantly when we saw Chicago Bears uniforms and a shot of actor James Caan that this was a piece about Pic, and the old film “Brian’s Song.” It is a story that comes around every football season, and loses little of its poignancy with the years. The film, made for TV, has proved one of the most enduring works in that category. Pic was the nickname his friends had for Brian Piccolo, who grew up in Fort Lauderdale, starred for what is now St. Thomas Aquinas High and Wake Forest and died at age 26 when playing for the Bears. The film is about his close interracial friendship with his roommate Gale Sayers, the Bears’ legendary halfback who had suffered a knee injury that would cut short a brilliant career. The central theme, of course, was the early death of Piccolo from a rare form of cancer in 1970. We heard a lot about Brian Piccolo when we arrived in town in 1971. He had been dead just a year. We hung out in Nick’s Lounge on Sunrise Boulevard a few years later, and a number of guys from the Piccolo era were patrons. Among them Bill Thies, Ed Trombetta and Bill Bondurant—all former athletes at Central Catholic before it changed its name to St. Thomas Aquinas. Over the years, we realized there was a back story to Brian Piccolo’s life in Fort Lauderdale: the unusual teammates he had in high school. In the mid-1980s, we came to know that story better when we wrote a piece for Sunshine, the Sun-Sentinel’s



By Bernard McCormick

Sunday magazine at the time. It was a story that wrote itself. By phone we interviewed Ed McCaskey, whose family owned the Chicago Bears. He got us in touch with Gale Sayers, who modestly said Brian Piccolo had kept the name Gale Sayers alive. We spoke to Piccolo’s widow, Joy, a high school sweetheart by whom he had three daughters, and his high school coach, Jim Kurth. We even got input from the cancer specialist who treated Piccolo, and who said his highly publicized death led to renewed research that had made a deadly form of cancer almost totally curable just 15 years later. hat story also benefitted from the recollections of Piccolo’s high school teammates who live in the area, and who turned out to be a most distinguished group. We got to know Dr. Dan Arnold, a leading children’s dentist, who loved to talk about his friend and how they competed to see who could make the most money. All who knew Piccolo confirmed his burning ambition to be successful and wealthy. He had not had a happy home environment, which friends thought motivated him to be a strong


family man, with financial success. We also interviewed attorney William Zloch, a name we recognized as a former Notre Dame quarterback, who would shortly be named to the federal bench. Over the last 35 years he has risen to become a highly respected U.S. District Senior Judge. Dr. Arnold, a halfback, and Judge Zloch, quarterback, were joined in the backfield with fullback John Graham. At 160 pounds, he blocked more than ran the ball. He wound up with a long and highly successful career with Nabisco, much of the time in Palm Beach County. He is now retired in Haines City where he and his wife still operate a food brokerage business. Piccolo, although a star, was not considered the best college prospect on the team. That was a big lineman, Bill Salter, who went to Wake Forest with Piccolo, but had a mediocre career there. Afterward, however, he became the third highest-ranking officer in the Sears organization, back when it was a formidable retail power. The list goes on. Prominent builder/banker Jack Abdo was also on the team (“I didn’t play at all”) but was a close and deeply affectionate Piccolo friend through both grade and high school. Attorney Frank Walker did play, both ways, wide receiver and defensive end. He became president of the Broward County Bar Association and still gives speeches about Piccolo. Brian Piccolo’s teammates are a remarkably successful group. Pic, who wanted to be the richest guy on the block, would appreciate the competition.
