FROM THE PUBLISHER

The Time is Now onprofit organizations are facing a critical moment in their existence. The economic uncertainty of the recent past has affected charitable giving to the sharpest degree in nearly a half-century, and forecasts through 2012 don’t look much better. Perhaps more than ever, this year’s edition of the Palm Beach Charity Register aims to make a difference in our community. As one of many ways we support the important work that local nonprofit organizations do, we produce the Charity Register to showcase their causes as well as their major fundraising events. This annual guide, published since 1992, is designed to connect those groups with the people in the best position to help them fulfill their missions. You. Without your continued support, these organizations cannot function. Fortunately, as you will see in these pages, there are countless opportunities to demonstrate your generosity and occasionally have a good time doing so. The sheer number of black-tie galas, golf tournaments, culinary adventures and other fundraising occasions might seem overwhelming, but this compendium provides the information necessary to help you plan your benevolent efforts and possibly get to know your community a little bit better. Each year, we collaborate with hundreds of area nonprofit groups to gather details about their causes and their events. As an advocate of many of them, we regularly see how the never-ending work of staffers, board members and volunteers—combined with generous patrons—can lead to powerful, uplifting results. We hope you’ll experience it for yourself. Likewise, we share this belief with the advertising partners who help make this resource possible. Their support of the Charity Register is a public demonstration of their commitment to the community by showing support for the awareness of worthy local causes and improving society’s general condition. You might have a favorite charity already, or you may be looking for one that matches your personal worldview, but each organization in this publication deserves careful consideration as you reflect upon your personal circumstances. Your ongoing benevolence will help them address the pressing needs they face— and sustain the important roles they play—in challenging times and beyond.

Palm Beach Diary Galas, lunches and parties, OH MY!

Time again for Palm Beach to shine for a collection of good causes. Liza Grant Smith

We kicked off the new year at the breakers (left and below). south florida science museum event cochairs afsy and carter pottash.

ar, Ringing in the New Ye Palm Beach-style!

It’s time again for the annual preseason routine. Throughout Palm Beach, wardrobes undergo selective expansion and new coifs take trial runs as calendars fill with engagements for the months that socially and philanthropically define Palm Beach. On this new season’s eve, it seems only fitting that we take a moment to raise our glass and make resolutions for what’s to come. We admit it: Our New Year’s resolutions lacked a certain, well, resoluteness. (It’s tough to lose 10 pounds when Buccan introduces a hot dog panini.) However, each and every item on the below list is attainable, as long as you have the willingness—and invitation—to experience it. Out of respect, however, let’s first give a nod to the highlights of the season that came before. n More than 3,500 guests attended the Norton Museum’s seventieth birthday bash and marveled at the awe- and droolinducing Norton-inspired cakes designed by local pastry chefs. n Fashion took a front seat—or a front lawn seat, to be more 14

specific—at the Pamella Roland fashion show to benefit the South Florida Science Museum, which was held at the palatial French chateau built by Dan Swanson at 1220 South Ocean. n Attendees of the H.O.W. (Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper) luncheon were treated to their own “nanny diary” as actress Fran Drescher moved the crowd with her account of battling uterine cancer. n At the Center for Family Services’ sold-out Old Bags Luncheon, another audience was inspired by Leigh Anne Tuohy, the woman behind Sandra Bullock’s big-screen performance in The Blind Side. n All’s well that ends better was the sentiment after Rihanna bowed out of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Discovery Celebration at the last minute and was the replaced by the even more vocally talented—and gracious—Jennifer Hudson. n Parrotheads rejoiced at the Everglades Foundation benefit when their “Beer in Mexico” with Kenny Chesney turned into a two-drink minimum as “Margaritaville” Jimmy Buffett took the stage for an unexpected duet. n For the first time, Susan G. Komen for the Cure supporters could choose kicks or cocktail attire as the organization added a formal gala, A Perfect Pink Party, to its fundraising platform that already included the hugely popular Race for the Cure. Enough reminiscing, though. It’s time to look ahead and truly dedicate ourselves to something, even if it’s merely having one

experience worthy of remembering next year. So get out your permanent marker and prepare to claim a resolution.

Visit exciting destinations If Out of Africa still holds a cherished place in your movie memory, take your own evening safari to the Place of Hope’s “Sunset on the Serengeti” at the PGA National Resort and Spa. Or perhaps beads and Bourbon Street are more your thing. At the American Red Cross Beach Bash’s “A Party to Die For,” attendees can travel to the Louisiana bayou for a pre-New Year’s Eve celebration with an authentic Cajun crawfish boil and Mardi Gras celebration (without leaving Palm Beach, of course). The Breakers will host its own grand celebration, the annual Fantasy Ball, on New Year’s Eve. Usher in 2012 with this black-tie event with entertainment by Zanadu performers and music by Powerhaus. Europhiles needn’t look any farther than the Beach Club and the International Society’s “A Night in Vienna” dinner dance. Finally, for those needing a dose of the city, head to New York with Susan Cushing, the chair of the Armory Art Center’s Mad Hatters Luncheon, for a pre-party for select invitees.

You may have been impressed with yourself for discovering a new hidden restaurant gem, but Dr. Robert Ballard discovered the RMS Titanic. The oceanographer will speak at the South Florida Science Museum’s “What Lies Beneath” gala. Erin Brockovich, the everywoman who made everyone, including Julia Roberts, take notice, will tell her story at the Mary Rubloff YWCA Harmony House luncheon. Not to be outdone, Parker Ladd will continue the tradition of delivering unforgettable guests at his Breakfast Series. This year will feature, among others, mogul Martha Stewart and authors Erica Jong and Nelson DeMille. Model and actress Andie MacDowell will address the attendees at this year’s H.O.W. luncheon, while 9/11 Fire Chief Dan Daly will tell his moving story at a Palm Beach Round Table reception in December. For inspiration in our own backyard, join local entrepreneur and philanthropist Alexander W. Dreyfoos Jr. at the January Culture & Cocktails at Café Boulud.

Party like a rock star. As all good revelers know, the real action is at the after-party. Take an afternoon nap so you can stay up for the Hanley Center’s Silver Jubilee Celebration after-party “La Nuit Violette,” which goes until midnight and includes DJ Adam Lipson spinning tracks and late-night treats by Donut Divas.

If you’re going to do something, do it in style. Perhaps there’s not a more timeless Palm Beach essential than the cocktail dress. The Norton Museum couldn’t agree more. To launch its “Cocktail Culture” exhibit in January, Saks Fifth Avenue will host a Carolina Herrera fashion show, charity shopping event and cocktail evening. Remember that black is the new black as you hit the town with your girls for the Center for Creative Education’s Little Black Dress Girls Night Out. It’s all about cocktail sipping and shopping. Sick of the adult table? See what constitutes pint-sized poshness as the students of Opportunity Inc. model fashions by Pastel at the charity’s luncheon and holiday boutique held at the Beach Club. 16

Who doesn’t secretly like paparazzi attention?

Disco divas, get out your metallic dress and head over to the Contemporaries of the Four Arts Gala with its Studio 54 theme. It’s time to start your reign as a dancing queen. Go all in.

Join in the festivities at the Palm Beach Opera’s Fiftieth Anniversary gala concert and evening with a slew of big opera names, including co-host Sherrill Milnes. For those looking for something with more strings attached, pull up a chair in the Flagler Museum’s West Room for a performance by the Euclid Quartet, one of the most well-regarded chamber ensembles of its generation.

Let at least one part of your life go to the dogs.

Chase After Something Amazing.

Research has shown that owning a pet can help you live longer. Forget the statistics, though … just look in the eyes of some of the adoptable canines on parade at the Peggy Adams Christmas ball and try to say, “No.”

“One Hot Night on Palm Beach” is offering one cool ride. Attendees of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s new gala, which represents the merging of the organization’s two signature events, “Gem of an Evening” and “One Hot Night,” will have the exclusive opportunity to bid on a tour on the Goodyear blimp. Get a front-row seat to a timeless kids’ favorite—Snoopy. At its annual Fine Wine and Hidden Treasures gala, Food For The Poor will auction off four viewing passes for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The lucky winners will be sipping cocoa on the 77th Street-Central Park West grandstands.

Embrace your inner clown. These days, clowns have much more refined tasks than merely trying to see how many can fit in a car. Check out the their highbrow humor at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Cirque du Palm Beach” at The Mar-A-Lago Club. Borrow some good punch lines from funny man Richard Lewis at Caron’s After Dark gala.

Study art. While a picture is worth 1,000 words, the people behind the pictures often deserve more in recognition. The Historical Society’s Tenth Annual Archival Evening will honor the influential photographers of Palm Beach. Hollywood comes to Palm Beach as local designers turn trees into art, adopting “The Magic of Movies” theme at this year’s Ann Norton Sculpture Garden Festival of Trees. Be sure to look for the tree inspired by Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Cause & Effect

Monies raised by local events help Palm Beach County residents better their lives. By Liza Grant Smith

Isabella’s wish is to go to Disney.

LaJerrick’s wish is to meet LaDainian Tomlinson.

Peaches’ wish is to be a runway model.

Historian Miriam Beard once wrote: “The results of philanthropy are always beyond calculation.” In certain respects, we have become accustomed to its incalculability. We attend events whose causes inspire us, content with the idea that our presence and donations will ultimately support the charity’s goal. We appreciate the importance of our philanthropic endeavors, often without being aware of its specific impact. In doing so, however, we miss out on what makes philanthropy truly powerful—its humanity. What follows are not nationwide initiatives but specific in-our-own-backyard stories of how three local events have a made a difference in the lives of those around us. They serve as reminders that while the end results of philanthropy may be beyond calculation, the tangible components are, by themselves, amazing.

Arisleyda’s wish is to have an 18th birthday bash.

Make-A-Wish Foundation A Family Affair

In some ways, Abigail is an average 9-year-old. Her favorite sport is soccer, she loves math and her idol is actress Ashley Tisdale. In one specific way, however, Abi is very different. She suffers from lymphoma. Since she was 6, Abi has dreamed of meeting her idol. This year, her dream came true. Abi and her family traveled to Vancouver and spent the day with Tisdale, going through the star’s entire routine (including hair, make-up and wardrobe) as well as sitting and chatting as Tisdale autographed all of the items a thrilled Abi had brought with her. While in Vancouver, she also visited the aquarium, took a gondola ride to the peak of Grouse Mountain, made snow angels and rode on a dog sled. It was a trip Abi will never forget and it was made possible by funds raised at last year’s A Family Affair. 22

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

Two years ago, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida decided to create an event that would be more appealing to familycentric donors. The goal was to cater to these donors and allow them to share their philanthropic habits with the entire family. The response has been overwhelming. A Family Affair is the largest fundraiser for the chapter within Palm Beach County and the third-largest fundraising event overall. More than $100,000 has been raised in the past two years. That’s enough to grant the wishes of 20 children with life-threatening medical conditions. MakeA-Wish considers that a special kind of magic. According to the organization’s mission statement, “It creates an indomitable spirit within the child to help sustain him or her through extremely difficult times, in hopes that miracles can be achieved.” sfla.wish.org

Center for Family Services Old Bags Luncheon

Emily’s daughter Sarah* had become withdrawn, not only emotionally, but also physically and mentally. Finally, Sarah confessed her secret—she had been molested several years earlier. Emily was referred to SAFE Kids (Stop Abuse by Family Empowerment), a sexual abuse treatment program of the Center for Family Services. After Sarah’s first session, her mom could already see a glimmer of change in her attitude. “You could see she was thinking that there could be hope for her,” she says. “The secret wasn’t worth keeping anymore. She came out with a smile. She found out that many other girls had the same secret and were on the same journey.” After Yolanda Thompson’s husband was laid off from his job as an architect, she found herself in a desperate situation. She had two teenage children and the family was being evicted from their apartment. Ultimately, they found Pat Reeves Village, a temporary shelter for homeless families with dependent children. After the family stayed at the shelter, the center’s Program REACH helped find Yolanda an apartment with the first month’s rent and deposit paid. Yolanda’s husband is still unemployed, but the two of them participate in one of the shelter’s work programs to earn an income. Yolanda’s daughter will attend college in the fall. The SAFE Kids program and Program REACH at Pat Reeves Village are supported, in large part, by the annual Old Bags Luncheon. The Old Bags Luncheon, celebrating its fourteenth anniversary, remains one of the most popular luncheons of the season. The 2011 24

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

event, which featured Leigh Anne Tuohy, was a sell-out with 630 tickets. A total of $415,000 was raised. After expenses, more than $250,000 went directly to the two programs. The support from the event has become increasingly important as funding from other sources, such as United Way, has declined in recent years because of the economy. The Old Bags Luncheon’s impact on these programs has been immense. In January 2002, the center was able to move its shelter program from a motel in Riviera Beach to the Pat Reeves Village facility in West Palm Beach. In 2009-2010 alone, the Village provided more than 15,000 adults and children at imminent risk of homelessness with basic services, including shelter, food and clothing. It gives down-on-their-luck families the critical time needed to get themselves back in order. SAFE Kids, the only program in Palm Beach County recognized by the Florida Department of Health Children’s Medical Services as an official Sexual Abuse Treatment Program, serves close to 400 children every year, many regardless of their ability to pay. The program gives children who are the victims of sexual or physical abuse or domestic violence, or the witness to domestic violence, a safe place to learn positive coping skills, stabilize their emotional and behavioral symptoms and improve family cohesion. ctrfam.org *Names have been changed

The Palm Beach Wine Auction Responses to the STAR (Students and Teachers Arts Resource) Series, the Kravis Center’s educational program that introduces school children to the performing arts, say it all: “I really enjoyed the lessons you taught us. We will never forget what you taught us.” —Twanmesha Major, Pleasant City Elementary “I learned that you can always have good citizenship by being respectful, safe, responsible and being honest.” —Destiny Goodman, North Palm Beach Elementary “Thank you for the performance! It was the best performance I ever saw in my life. That’s a performance I will NEVER forget. I also enjoyed the other one called [“Virtually Me!”] about cyber bullying. I learned a lot from that performance.” —Leylany Duran, Palmetto Elementary “It is wonderful to see plays inspire young minds to further their own aspirations to be better readers and perhaps actors. Thank you.” —Miss Balch, Second Grade, West Gate Elementary Motivated by his desire to “share the cultural wealth” with a new generation of young people, Kravis Center board member Ted Mandes founded the Palm Beach Wine Auction four years ago. The inaugural event raised $243,000, with the 2011 event bringing 26

in $365,000 to support the STAR Series. The series exposes tens of thousands of local students to the most current, challenging and artistically diverse young people’s programming and provides them with comprehensive study guides for further learning. An admission waiver program assures that no student will be denied admission because of financial need. In consideration of the economy and uncertainty of funding, the Kravis Center was forced to reduce the number of STAR Series 2009-2010 performances in the main concert hall and in the outdoor Gosman Amphitheatre. Last season, largely because of funds from the wine auction, five productions were reinstated in Dreyfoos Hall, allowing significantly increased attendance and a special experience for children thanks to the venue’s uniqueness. This year, the STAR Series will offer 10 performances of eight productions in Dreyfoos. The Kravis Center believes what seems to be a consensus among many educators, psychologists and social scientists—children tangibly benefit from arts education. With little emphasis on the arts in regular school curricula, it’s essential for organizations like Kravis to strive to fill this gap. kravis.org

Seeing Stars

Celebrities flock to Palm Beach to lend their names and faces to some of this season’s most prominent events. By michelle m. havich

Actress andie macdowell and activist christopher kennedy lawford will speak at events this season.

Famous faces are not uncommon in Palm Beach. Each season, star sightings happen at restaurants, on Worth Avenue and at our luxury resorts and spas. Most are here to soak up the sun and the atmosphere, but a few of them are here to lend their famous faces and voices to a charity’s mission. This season is no different, with a small galaxy of who’s who coming to town to help out. h Famous for her roles in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes; Sex, Lies and Videotape; Groundhog Day and Four Weddings and a Funeral, actress and model Andie MacDowell will be in Palm Beach to speak at the H.O.W. (Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper) “Time is of the Essence” luncheon. Through her relationship with L’Oreal Paris, Mac-

Dowell has been a spokesperson for ovarian cancer for many years. “I have taken it upon myself to reach out to organizations that support ovarian cancer,” she says. “I don’t merely want to be the face of something; I actually want to participate and physically show up.” Each year, more than 22,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and 15,000 will die. It is called the “whisper killer” because symptoms are subtle, and the disease can go undetected until it’s often too late for successful treatment. H.O.W was founded by Palm Beach resident Jacquelin “Jacquie” Liggett, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2000. Not one to sit back, Liggett got friends together and fought to raise funds for research. With the aid of Palm Healthcare Foundation, she founded H.O.W. in 2002 to help other women struggling with the disease. She died in 2007, but H.O.W. continues her mission to help others through research, education and financial assistance to women with ovarian cancer. MacDowell hopes to gain as much as she gives by speaking at the annual luncheon. “As I have been saying the phrase ‘Because you’re worth it’ for 25 years now, I’ve had a lot of time to think about what that line really means,” she says. “I plan to talk about how we as humans find our value. Having been the face of a beauty line, it’s been important for me to develop my interior life to feel that I have substance and something to offer the world beyond an image. One of the ways I feel fulfilled is by bringing awareness of ovarian cancer to other women. I hope that I can inspire the audience to fight for better research and urge them

to continue the much-needed support for all women who are fighting ovarian cancer.” H.O.W.’s “Time is of the Essence” luncheon will be held January 30, 2012 at the Flagler Museum Pavilion in Palm Beach. For more information, and to buy tickets, visit ovarianpbc.org. h Author, actor and passionate activist Christopher Kennedy Lawford will speak at CARP’s annual spring luncheon. CARP (Comprehensive Alcoholism Rehabilitation Programs Inc.) provides prevention, education and treatment services to people and families battling addictions. “CARP does amazing work for folks who need services, and does it on a level where it affects people from all different kinds of economic [backgrounds],” Lawford says. “It’s critical to me that these organizations are supported and that we do everything we can in order to get them attention, so people can see the kind of work that they’re doing, so that they contribute.” Lawford, who has been in recovery himself for more than 25 years, has written two books, the memoir Symptoms of Withdrawal and Moments of Clarity, which tells the recovery stories of people, both famous and everyday, who have been touched by addiction. He currently is working on a new book about all varieties of addictive disease called Kick Any Habit. All of this is to help people move from addiction to recovery, and raise awareness and money to reach that goal. His speech at the CARP luncheon will focus on removing the stigma from addiction, and living a better life through recovery. “And what an amazing life you can have,” he says. “This isn’t a story of ‘Oh, isn’t it nice the poor little addicts are doing so well.’ This is about what we have to give the world. My uncle became president of the United States, and he was a sick guy most of his life. He believed, and I grew up with the ethic, that if you really go to the darkness, if you really have to overcome something, you not only appreciate life, but you have wisdom and you can re

ally achieve great things. There are millions of people who have danced with the 800-pound gorilla of addiction who meet that criteria. They have a lot to give the world. They don’t believe they have a lot to give the world, but I’m here to tell them that they do.” The CARP annual spring luncheon will be held February 5, 2012 at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach in Manalapan. For more information, go to carpinc.org. h The Salvation Army will host former New York Mayor Rudy Giuiliani at the fortieth annual Christmas ball. He will talk about the Salvation Army’s role during 9/11.

The luncheon is March 30, 2012 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, West Palm Beach. literacypbc.org h Wellington resident, best-selling suspense writer and equestrian Tami Hoag is the honorary chairperson for the twenty-fifth annual dinner and auction for Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center. Hoag is an accomplished rider active in the field of dressage.

Caring Hearts These prominent Palm Beach ladies (and gentleman) are using their time and effort to help others in the community and beyond. By Liza Grant Smith

While her days of matriculation are behind her, Patty Myura still upholds her graduating class motto of “Forward ever. Backwards never.” It’s why she can’t tell you which event she will be chairing during the upcoming season. “I try to always look ahead and do things where the need is the greatest.” Thirteen years ago, she recognized a need for an emergency shelter for homeless families with children. Through hard work and events such as the Old Bags Luncheon, Myura was able to get three buildings constructed for the Center for Family Services to help support the hundreds of children who are homeless on any given night. “I don’t just chair something,” she says. “I get things done.” This past season, Myura chaired Palm Beach’s first evening event to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The Perfect Pink Party, which Myura and her team orchestrated from concept to flawless execution, raised more than $800,000 for the worthy cause. “Give me the ground floor stuff because I love to take it and run with it,” she says. With 35 years of fundraising and event planning under her belt, Myura has earned a reputation in philanthropic circles and gets more than her fair share of requests to chair events and become involved. However, she is careful to assess the opportunities. “I analyze things very clearly in my head and investigate them,” she says. “I give myself a reason to do this, because I don’t care if they never take my picture.”


Tom Quick jokes that his full philanthropic plate comes from an “inability to say ‘no.’” Quick’s calendar is indeed packed, as he chairs or cochairs everything from the season opener (the Children’s Home Society’s Ultimate Dinner Party) to the season finale (the Hôpital Albert Schweitzer, in Haiti, benefit) and everything in between (Best Buddies Palm Beach Gala, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Palm Beach Dinner, the Palm Beach Zoo Ball and Do at the Zoo). He also serves as chairman of the American Cancer Society’s Palm Beach chapter. With a Wall Street background, Quick is used to multitasking and leverages his experience in his chairing. “I approach each fundraising event as I would approach the business I was in on Wall Street, which is minimizing expenses while growing the revenue to maximize the bottom line,” he says. Quick’s tenure with each of the charities varies, but he admits to forming personal attachments to each cause, leading to his continued commitment year after year. In 1989, while still in New York, Quick started a “young friends of Wall Street” group to support St. Jude’s. Twenty-two years later, the Wall Street Committee’s Taste of New York event is one of the largest single fundraising events in the country. Giving back was a priority instilled by his late parents. “I think at the end of the day, you want to make a difference,” he says. “If you’re in the position and have the means and time to do it, you should give back.”

—TOM QUICK

veteran fundraiser Lois Pope can pinpoint the moment she was first moved to build a memorial for disabled veterans. The Broadway singer was performing at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine in the 1960s when she met the eyes of a young soldier and reached out to take his hand, only to realize he had lost it in service to our country. “In the many years that have passed since that day, I have had the honor and privilege to meet many, many heroes who have given of their minds and bodies to protect our freedom, and each time I am reminded that there is nothing more important than those who have given selflessly in service to our country,” she says. With the help of a team of allies that included the Disabled American Veterans, Art Wilson and Secretary of Veteran Affairs Jesse Brown (whose support came only after she made daily calls to him for six months), Pope made a case to Congress for the memorial’s creation. Today, all of Pope’s energies are directed towards the completion of the American Veterans Disabled for LIFE Memorial in Washington, D.C. It will be the only memorial in the nation’s capital that pays tribute to the 3 million veterans living today and all deceased disabled veterans throughout the nation’s history. Thanks to Pope’s unwavering, and often relentless, pursuit of the cause, her goal is finally within reach. With the 2011 Lady in Red Gala, LIFE will reach its fundraising goal and be on track for the memorial to be dedicated and opened on Veterans Day 2012. 34

Talbott Maxey divides her time between numerous charities, but it’s the unifying factor that she finds the most rewarding. “Raising money for causes unifies all kinds of people, backgrounds and ideas. People come together around charity.” Philanthropic causes have long been a part of Maxey’s life. While pursuing a master’s degree in social work, she worked in the terminally ill playroom at Duke University. The issue of children’s cancer remains close to her heart as she now cochairs the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Palm Beach Dinner. “I like the events I chair to be smaller and less glitzy,” she says. “I feature physicians from St. Jude’s and always try to honor people in Palm Beach who are doing and giving to cancer.” Maxey’s dedication to other charities is due, in large part, to the passions of those closest to her. Maxey’s musician daughter, who loves to compose and play, inspired her to found the Youth Music Fund, dedicated to excellence in classical music education. And thanks to her mother, a garden enthusiast and long-time Palm Beach supporter, Maxey felt compelled to become involved with the Society of the Four Arts (forming the Contemporaries) and the Preservation Foundation (sitting on the executive board and chairing the annual Garden Party and Bridge Party). Much like a proud mother, Maxey fosters a strong sense of family between her “children.” “Every single charity I’m involved with crisscrosses,” she says. “I try to find that thread that connects them so that they see they’re doing the same thing. The way they connect is what’s important.”

For the causes she really cares about, Petra Levin uses more than the stroke of her pen to affect change. “It’s my personality,” she says. “I cannot just hand over a check. I need to be personally involved and hands-on.” For the seventh year in a row, Levin will chair the Caron Renaissance Gala to support Caron, which offers residential treatment and outpatient programs for adults, young adults and families facing drug and alcohol addiction. With substance abuse running in her close family and friends, Levin feels a strong affinity to the charity. The 2011 event, held at The Mar-a-Lago Club, drew a record attendance of 400 and featured a crowd-wowing performance by Studio 54 legend Gloria Gaynor. It also raised more than $800,000 in scholarship dollars for Caron. While it’s tough to imagine how Levin could possibly top the event, she intends to do just that. This year, comedian Richard Lewis will perform, and the audience is certain to leave smiling. “It’s really a lot of work, but my goal is always to make it better than the one before,” she explains. “I build on the major points that made it so successful last year.” While she’s happy to laud the work of Caron, now the premium treatment center in America, the former model is tight-lipped on one subject. Levin politely refuses to divulge too many details about this year’s event. “I always try to do something unique and I already have great ideas for this year,” she promises.
