On the cover Continuing the tradition of spotlighting the community’s art scene on the Palm Beach Charity Register cover, local artists once again submitted their best pieces for an online reader poll. This year, Laurie Snow Hein’s Under His Wings was crowned victorious. The South Florida native has been painting for more than 50 years, gaining a following for her tropical landscape and wildlife imagery. A photograph she took of a pink spoonbill and her babies inspired this work. “Florida wildlife is very dear to my heart,” says the Palm Beach Gardens resident. “I spend lots of time out in nature at state parks photographing and enjoying the beauty that Florida offers. I’m always inspired by this place I call home.”(lauriesnowhein.com)

rowing up, my parents instilled in me the importance of helping those in need. As business owners in the health care industry and cancer survivors, they supported local hospitals and nonprofits in their mission to relieve suffering with sponsorships, assistance on projects and events, and simply by taking the extra time to counsel patients going through the same things they did. Why? Because they believed if they were in a position to help, it was their duty to do so. This attitude inspired me as a young girl, and over the years I developed my own passions, mostly for hands-on volunteerism. In prideful moments—like admiring a roof I helped construct with Habitat for Humanity, or hearing ESL students tell me they earned their first A on a paper—I am so thankful to have my mom and dad as role models. The strong charitable output in the Palm Beaches, which is among the most robust in the nation, was a major factor in my decision to move to the area in 2016. When Palm Beachers identify a need, they find a way to help. As a result, we are home to the hundreds of unique humanitarian (and animal-loving!) nonprofits found in the pages of this annual issue. Since philanthropy is at the center of this community, it’s also the nexus of its social season. Long considered the “bible” to the area’s charitable events, the Palm Beach Charity Register presents more than 174 black-tie balls, beachfront fêtes, and fundraising fashion shows to attend this winter, starting on page 47. Grab a marker, circle your favorites, and start filling your calendar. In addition to this compendium of events, you’ll also find fashion inspiration, a behind-the-scenes take on what goes into orchestrating a signature Palm Beach gala, and a deep dive into how organizations utilize every dollar to help others. For further proof of the infectious power of giving back, flip to “The Changemakers” on page 44 to read about kids and young adults who took it upon themselves to address issues in their own backyards, or turn to “Art & Altruism” on page 26, for a look at how local artists, such as Jason Newsted and Mary Fisher, lend their voice to deserving causes. Whether it’s purchasing gifts that do social good like those in “Shop for a Cause” on page 24, volunteering, or showing your support at an event, there are countless ways to make a difference. We hope this issue inspires you to get involved. Here’s to another great season in the Palm Beaches!

PERSEVERANCE

Perseverance. A powerful element in fighting cancer. Edith Picallo has persevered through tough challenges in her 70 years – immigrating from Cuba, losing her husband to cancer, raising three kids alone and beating cancer twice. A new stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis had her wondering if she had what it took to beat it again. Her initial prognosis was severe – less than a year to live. But when she found Florida Cancer Specialists, her doctor conducted genomic testing to personalize her therapy. The result – her tumor shrank 47 percent in just six months. Now, three years after her diagnosis, Edith’s story shows that when hope and science join forces, great outcomes can happen. “Florida Cancer Specialists did a genetic test to determine the right medicine for me and my lung cancer, and it is working.”

RETHINK PINK Bid adieu to millennial pink, the pastel hue that reigned supreme the past several seasons. In tune with the return of ’80s glamour, designers like Oscar de la Renta, Milly, and Claudia Li cranked up the dial on their hot pink creations. Try pairing the bold color with red, a chic combination seen in the collections of Christian Siriano and Prabal Gurung.

EVERYTHING THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD Eye candy was plentiful as makeup artists used serious sparkle to make eyes shine. While the Swarovski crystaladorned eyelids at Kate Spade and gold leaf liner at Ulla Johnson may be more runway apropos, the glitter looks created by MAC makeup artists at Oscar de la Renta and Milly are ideal for creating a striking nighttime visage.

Far from their simple slip dress predecessors in basic black, these new frocks shine in jewel tones and delight with unique details, such as the embellished straps on an emerald green gown by Jason Wu.

KISS BRIGHT LIPS GOODBYE In order to balance out a bold eye—smoky, glittery, or just intense with color—let your pout go nude. Tom Ford models, like the ubiquitous Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter), let nothing detract from their glittery cat eyes in the designer’s new neutral lip colors.

100 GOOD DEEDS BRACELET When artist Mary Fisher went public with her HIV diagnosis at the 1992 Republican National Convention, she became the voice for those who didn’t dare to speak out. Today, her life is a balance of activism and art. She spent nearly a decade partnering on a jewelry line with vulnerable African women who had been affected by HIV before she met filmmaker Thomas Morgan, who created the 100 Good Deeds game. A good deed means you’ve gone out of your way to help someone and only counts if the deed is anonymous. Feeling inspired, Fisher designed the 100 Good Deeds bracelet as a call to do good deeds and empower women. She says, “It’s satisfying to know that the bracelet, when used by its wearers to count their good deeds, has encouraged more than a million acts of kindness and care.” (100gooddeeds.org)

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted’s colorful rock music directly transfers from the speakers onto his canvas. He began painting in 2001 and was encouraged to pursue art by fellow Jupiter resident Nick Korniloff, director of Art Miami and stepfather of Perry Cohen, who went missing off the Jupiter inlet in 2015. Newsted exhibited at a handful of Art Miami fairs in 2017 and 2018, as well as at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales to support the Perry J. Cohen Foundation’s mission to advance the arts, environmental education and preservation, teenage entrepreneurship, and boating safety education. He continues to use his artistic voice to raise awareness and donate to the foundation. “Only you can sing your song,” he says. “Only you have your voice.” (pjcf.org)

Most homeless shelters look like just that. Vita Nova, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide safe housing for homeless youth, is working to change that social stigma. The Spot, a West Palm Beach drop-in center for homeless youth ages 18 to 25, opened last June with the goal of eliminating homelessness. With giant superhero murals painted by South Florida artist Anthony Hernandez, The Spot is enticing youth to begin receiving services such as vulnerability assessments and training related to housing, health care, employment, and education. Hernandez, whose murals can be seen throughout West Palm Beach, is passionate about art, which was his way of keeping calm as a child. “This project is about beautifying an area and it’s breaking that certain stigma,” he says. “I really hope it becomes an asset to Vita Nova.” (vitanovainc.org)

GIVING WISELY

What’s in a Name?

A charitable plan with naming rights presents donors with a slice of immortality and a gift that keeps on giving for generations By Judy Martel

In his 1889 seminal book, The Gospel of Wealth, industrialist Andrew Carnegie urges the rich to live modestly and give generously. Today, the Carnegie tradition lives on through thousands of philanthropic works bearing his name, including free public libraries, foundations, public trusts, and universities. Donors have been putting their personal mark on charity since the earliest efforts to develop the New World. The country’s oldest college, Harvard, was named after John Harvard, who left his library and half his estate to the institution upon his death in 1638. These days, it might take a little more than the bequest of a personal library to buy the naming rights to a university. But with organizations becoming more creative, philanthropists will find myriad opportunities beyond brick-and-mortar projects to publicly identify their financial largesse, including lecture series, exhibits, landscaping, scholarships, and more. Case in point: Two Northwestern University trustees and their wives endowed the salary for the men’s basketball head coach, now named the Sullivan-Ubben Head Men’s Basketball Coaching position. Donors who want to lend their name to a cause typically seek public recognition of their passions, says Rick Schneider, senior vice president of advancement at the National Center for Family Philanthropy. “And for families, especially those with a foundation that includes multiple generations, there is a sense of enduring legacy and also inspiration for the community,” he adds. On the flip side, there are donors who believe giving anonymously is virtuous, representing true charitable intent without the ego-boosting public fanfare. But Schneider says most don’t seek naming opportunities for 28

the recognition alone. Rather, it’s considered a benefit that comes with supporting a cause they believe in—often to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. And because of their popularity, naming rights are usually marketed and “sold” to donors as such, so they know upfront how much their name will cost. Finding appropriate naming opportunities to match a donor’s financial ability and passion is the job of the fundraiser, says Bill Stanczykiewicz, director of The Fund Raising School at the Lilly Family Institute of Philanthropy at Indiana University-Purdue University. If they are not carefully managed, naming opportunities can garner negative repercussions. Multiple donors competing for one major prospect—as

Carnegie Hall, New York City

in a building—will likely result in a trail of disappointed contributors. Before a campaign is launched, Stanczykiewicz counsels fundraisers to examine every need associated with the project and break it down into potential funding proposals. In the case of capital disbursements, the building itself is typically at the top of the list as the most visible, enduring, and expensive part of the project. From there, the remainder of the organization’s needs are identified and divided into individual opportunities—some ongoing and others one-time expenditures. With thoughtful planning, there’s something to match every contributor’s financial ability and interest to ensure a lasting legacy.

Good Time: President’s Gala Good Deed: Florida Atlantic University scholarships

MFA students at Florida Atlantic University are better supported in their educational endeavors thanks to a generous gift from famous benefactor Marleen Forkas. Forkas’ donation will fund graduate fellowships for MFA students each summer for FAU’s Festival Repertory Theatre series. “Marleen’s strong desire to help students who share her same passion for the arts will transform the lives of our students for generations to come,” says Michael J. Horswell, dean of the College of Arts and Letters. Hosted at the FAU Stadium, the eighth annual FAU President’s Gala highlighted the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters and dazzled with fine dining, fireworks, and Broadway-style live entertainment showcasing the college’s talented students. This year’s event raised more

than $3.7 million, and the College of Arts and Letters Advisory Board requested that the funds be donated specifically to arts scholarships. “The visual and performing arts inspire creativity and help students gain a deeper understanding of themselves,” says Horswell, who is a firm believer in arts education. The annual tradition gives the community a chance to experience the remarkable work of students and faculty at FAU, all while making a direct impact on a student’s life by providing scholarship support. “We only see the event growing in the scholarship dollars raised year after year,” says Stacy Volnick, vice president for administrative affairs. “That affords us the opportunity to help make even more students’ dreams of an education possible.”

The annual Palm Beach Wine Auction brings together wine connoisseurs and philanthropists to support the Kravis Center’s art programs for children.

Good Time: Palm Beach Wine Auction Good Deed: Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts education programs

Thanks to the Palm Beach Wine Auction, performance students can continue singing their hearts out. The unique event combines food, wine, and philanthropy for an enchanting evening of fundraising at the Kravis Center, where supporters enjoy a five-course dinner paired with fine wines and have a chance to bid on rare bottles. This year, the auction raised more than $700,000 for Palm Beach County performing arts education, including many Title I schools. Ted Mandes, founder and chairman of the auction, united his passions for wine and arts education when creating the event 11 years ago. “The performing arts has been a part of my life since I was little,” he says. “There’s a need for enlightening young minds and exposing them to the performing arts.” Mandes travels worldwide from California to Europe for wine tastings in order to choose the best bottles for the big night. The goal of the auction is to ensure that educational programs continue at the Kravis Center. 32

The Kravis Center offers multiple resources for underserved schools in the county, such as Broadway Reach, which allows children from neighborhood after-school programs to experience live touring Broadway shows. The majority of these resources are intended for elementary schools, but programs like the Kravis on Broadway Student Workshops serve high school and college students. Tracy Butler, director of education for the Kravis Center, explains the importance of providing comprehensive arts programming. “There is a correlation between the discipline they learn here and how it crosses over into completing their schoolwork,” she says. “We want to have as many students participate in our programs so we can foster that love for the arts.” These programs have proved that the performing arts have enhanced students’ attendance, teamwork, confidence, and engagement in class. Says Butler, “We really want to shine a spotlight on the great work happening in our schools.”

Good Time: Race for the Cure Good Deed: Susan G. Komen South Florida services

A breast cancer survivor grabbed Kate Watt’s hand at the 2018 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in West Palm Beach and said two words: Thank you. “Twenty years ago, she didn’t know where she was going to receive the treatment she desperately needed,” says Watt, executive director of Komen South Florida. “Komen was there for her, and we’re still here.” Watt was inspired to get involved with Susan G. Komen after her mother beat breast cancer—with the help of the Komen organization’s education and advocacy resources. The twenty-seventh annual event called on more than 11,500 survivors, supporters, and breast cancer fighters to lace up their running shoes and race to find a cure. The survivor’s ceremony usually is the event’s most powerful moment. “There’s something in the power of seeing so many people who are living with, battling, and have survived 34

this disease standing in front of you,” Watt says. This year’s race raised more than $1.3 million. Seventy-five percent of funds stays in the county, while 25 percent goes toward groundbreaking research grants. This year’s fundraising benefited 14,000 people in the South Florida community, providing them with breast cancer education and treatment services. Out of those 14,000 people, 46 discovered they had breast cancer. Over the last 30 years, there has been a 38 percent reduction in breast cancer deaths, and Watt says the organization’s ultimate goal is to increase that percentage to 50 by 2026. Watt encourages the community to come out each year for the race, and to bring awareness, advocacy, and funding to support those living with the disease. “Grab your friends, form a team, and wear pink so you can help us fight this fight.”

Blankets of Love

Lily Guari, Johnny Cassidy, Mercedes Cassidy

For a child, there’s an incredible sense of helplessness seeing a loved one battle cancer. Three young friends—Lily Guari (Rosarian Academy) and siblings Mercedes Cassidy (Jupiter High School, Environmental Research and Field Studies Academy) and Johnny Cassidy (The Greene School)—share that emotional struggle. Guari’s mother is a survivor of a rare form of leukemia and all three had grandmothers who were diagnosed with lung cancer. To help ease the overwhelming toll of cancer treatment, the trio decided to bestow on patients a feeling of love and warmth in the form of a soft blanket. They had seen the effect such a gift could have in their personal lives and wanted to share this comfort with others. In 2017, they started Blankets of Love and began fundraising for their first order of 200 blankets. Harnessing the power of social media, they developed Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts to generate buzz, and have donated more than 300 blankets to leukemia cancer centers since the organization’s inception. Their first fundraiser, held at a skating rink with their peers in attendance, raised close to $900. While flattered by accolades and awards like the one given to them by the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce, the founders still receive the most joy from the reaction to the blankets. “We get emails and thank-you notes from patients and learn how our little act of kindness has changed their life,” says Guari. “That’s the biggest deal for us.” (blanketsoflovepalmbeach.com)

Kayla Cares 4 Kids William T. Dwyer High School student Kayla Abramowitz knows firsthand how dull and depressing hospitals can be for kids. Diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, juvenile arthritis, eosinophilic colitis, and gastroparesis, the 16-year-old has spent a great deal of her life in medical centers. After exhausting all the DVDs in Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s library during a two-week stay when she was 11, she had an epiphany. Upon returning home, she found several Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs that her family outgrew and promptly donated them to the hospital. The gift was met with enthusiastic appreciation. Abramowitz kept the momentum going and, with a goal of collecting 100 DVDs, handed out flyers in her North Palm Beach neighborhood. Within a week, she had 300 DVDs sitting in her living room. Kayla Cares 4 Kids was officially born. Because her younger brother, who also has chronic medical issues, had been treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children, Abramowitz next focused her efforts on that nationwide network. Kayla Cares 4 Kids donated 500 DVDs across 10 Shriners locations to lift young patients’ spirits.

School Lunch Fairy Christian Cordon-Cano was riding in the car with his dad when he heard a story about lunch shaming on the radio. For The King’s Academy student, this was a foreign concept, but one he would soon realize is a symptom of a widespread, underlying problem. Holding children publicly accountable for unpaid school lunch bills by giving them a cold cheese sandwich instead of a complete meal, or mark-

Kayla Abramowitz

Five years after its founding, Kayla Cares 4 Kids operates as a nonprofit organization with board members, advisory councils, and Abramowitz as CKO (Chief Kid Officer). To date, the organization has donated 17,000 items to keep kids entertained, including DVDs, video game consoles, books, and arts and crafts supplies, to nearly 450 children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. “This has been a wonderful thing to get my mind off my own health issues and to know that I have been able to make an impact on kids who are just like me,” says Abramowitz. (kaylacares4kids.org)

ing their hand with a stamp, or even dumping a student’s lunch in the trash, has received national attention and response from legislators. While some low-income families qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, others just miss qualifying and are left struggling to pay. As a result, 76 percent of all U.S. school districts have students with unpaid lunch debts. With the mindset that every child in America deserves a good lunch, Cordon-Cano founded School Lunch Fairy with friend Bernardo Hasbach (a recent Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts grad now at MIT) to raise funds that school districts can use to create an emergency lunch fund for students in need, or to pay down existing lunch debt. Thanks to a solid social media presence and mentions from media like The New York Times, School Lunch Fairy has already donated to 24 school districts in 11 states. Cordon-Cano, now attending the University of Miami, hopes the organization’s recent designation as a 501(c)(3) will attract more corporate sponsors, such as the local Duffy’s Foundation, which helped raise $10,000 for School Lunch Fairy through its Change for Charity initiative. “Our friends have been very supportive of our organization because everyone can get behind a good cause,” he says. “I think it’s also helped them see that it doesn’t matter how old you are or where you come from—anyone can really impact the world.” (schoollunchfairy.org)

Tri-County Animal Rescue has saved more than 63,000 animals since it was founded by Suzi Goldsmith and Jeannette Christos in 1996. Most of these animals never had a chance to live the life they deserved before coming to the shelter, and without TriCounty Animal Rescue, their days would have been numbered.
