PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER


FROM THE PUBLISHER

Philanthropy Defined and Perpetuated T

ROBERT NELSON

he origin of our word “philanthropy” is from the Greek word “philanthropia,” meaning “humanity, benevolence,” and in adjective form, “philanthropos,” meaning “loving mankind.” There is a tremendous amount of humanity and benevolence in this community, and that’s one reason Palm Beach is special. There is an abundance of altruistic concern for human welfare and advancement here. It takes form as donations of money, property or work. We’re all richer because of it. We’re privileged to be able to do it. And the evidence of its effectiveness is all around us, whether it’s seen on the face of a child, the food on the table at a shelter, the clothes on the back of someone less fortunate, the scholarship giving someone a helping hand, a machine at the hospital, a book on the library shelf or the extension of life from a breakthrough in research. As we celebrate the beginning of another philanthropic season in the Charity Register, take a moment to consider how you’re passing it on. Not your own money or your own volunteer time, but your own dedication to it. If there are children in your family, think about discussing the importance of philanthropy with them. If they are old enough to have an allowance or a part-time job, consider asking them what causes are important to them and offer to match their contributions in some ratio. Invite them to come along with you when you are volunteering your time or doing some act of benevolence on your own. The power of giving is incredible. We have the opportunity to amplify it by helping others recognize the need, the obligation and the joy of doing what they can. Your money and your time are important; your impact on those who follow is, too.

Palm Beach Diary Social Imperative A must-read guide to the season essentials By Liza Grant Smith

Famous faces filled the season!

The year was full of surprises, including the manolo blahnik raffle at the Old Bags Luncheon (top) and a flash mob at the Kravis Center’s volunteer salute (left).

These days, living unassisted has become far too cumbersome. As a result, we have assembled our own entourage—a handpicked group of experts to tell us how to exercise, what to eat, what to frame and put on our living room wall and even what our dog is saying. As yet another season approaches, we thought it only fitting to add another expert player to your life roster: social season attaché. Our master’s degree in the subject of Palm Beach comes after intensive study and some selective eavesdropping at hotspots like the Boo and Buccaneer. (That’s Ta-boo and Buccan, for those in need of a Palm Beach vocabulary coach.) What follows is an expert guide to all the “musts” this season has to offer. So read up, take notes and prepare to RSVP ASAP. Before we begin, it’s important to ascertain just how much you are in need of seasonal guidance. What follows here is a list of highlights from last year. If they conjure up fond memories, you’re on the right track. If they read like pages out of the diary of someone much cooler, you’ve got some work ahead of you. 14

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

u Guests at the Everglades Foundation Gala experienced the best of what’s around when Dave Matthews put on an hour-long performance at The Breakers, overshadowing other big names in attendance like surfing legend and honorary chairman Kelly Slater and Everglades board member and golf deity Jack Nicklaus. u Guests of the South Florida Science Museum’s Gala got a sinking feeling when oceanographer and explorer Robert Ballard discussed his discovery of the RMS Titanic. u Shoe addicts needed to call their sponsor when the Center for Family Services’ Old Bags Luncheon added a Manolo Blahnik shoe raffle to the festivities. u Caron Renaissance played a celebrity doubleheader with comedian Richard Lewis and NFL great Joe Theismann at its After Dark Gala. u One guest of the Paradise Fund’s Paradise Casino became the most envied bag lady in town when she won a $20,000 Ferragamo oversized white alligator tote bag in a Chinese auction. u Mob mentality took on a whole new meaning at the Kravis Center’s Twentieth Anniversary Volunteer Salute when members of the Kravis Center staff and talented Dreyfoos School of the Arts dancers mounted a flash mob for unsuspecting guests. u Chris Matthews took a break from playing Hardball to talk about his Jack Kennedy biography as one of the authors in Parker Ladd’s Author Breakfast Series.

Cause & Effect Serious Partying This season, enjoy every event knowing that the celebration is twofold.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center

By Liza Grant Smith

A win-win proposition should be, for all intents and purposes, a nobrainer. Take the Palm Beach social season. Night after night, participants are given the opportunity to enjoy the best of food, friends and entertainment. And, with their attendance, they help a worthwhile cause. This should be enough to earn a contented slumber following the chosen fêtes. However, some people (whether they be pessimists, pragmatists or just those unwilling to indulge guilt-free) are left with the lingering question of the system’s improbability: Is this revelry for its own sake, or is it really the mark of benevolence? To answer that nagging voice, we present three snapshots (of the immeasurable examples in existence) that illustrate ways in which these events make a difference. They are not big-picture gestures. These are tangible programs that have changed our community for the better. So read on and then proceed to dance and revel unfettered, knowing that good deeds and good times are not mutually exclusive.

good time: Lights Out Gala

❰ good deed: Loggerhead Marinelife Center ❱ Kahuna, a female loggerhead sea turtle, was found on August 22, 2010 at FPL’s St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant. The victim of a shark attack, Kahuna was missing 60 percent of her front left flipper and had several deep lacerations in her front right flipper that required surgery. The turtle also had labored breathing, possibly because of aspirating seawater. Over the next two years, Kahuna was treated at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center with nebulizations, antibiotics, vitamins and nutritional support. During the healing process, she developed a bone infection and underwent 17 treatments in a hyperbaric chamber. On July 7, 2012, Kahuna was deemed healthy and released off of Juno Beach. Thanks to a GPS satellite tag, Kahuna 22

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

was last spotted just north of Bimini in the Bahamas. Last year, 76 sea turtle patients were treated at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. Additionally, more than 23,000 school children and 215,000 center visitors were exposed to conservation education. Juno Beach is one of the most densely populated beaches in the world for nesting sea turtles, and education helps reduce the risk of sea turtles becoming extinct in our children’s lifetimes. Funds raised from the center’s annual Lights Out Gala help underwrite the center’s research, rehabilitation and education programs. marinelife.org

Cause & Effect

good time: Mad Hatter’s Luncheon

❰ good deed: Armory Arts Center ❱ Local artist Anthony Burks volunteered to take part in a partnership between the Armory Art Center and the Palm Beach County Housing Authority. Over an eight-week period, three volunteer instructors provided art lessons and curriculum to 45 underprivileged publicly housed children in West Palm Beach. On the first day, Burks asked the children to draw what they “know and see.” Almost all of them drew a picture or scene that included a television. At the end of the eight weeks, he asked them to once again draw what they “know and see.” Many of the kids 24

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

drew images like palettes, colors, people and birds. Their world seemed to grow more colorful with the addition of art, and the children seemed to learn how to view their surroundings differently. For many of these children, this experience will be the only art education they have in primary or secondary school. The Mad Hatter’s Luncheon helps fund outreach programs like this one as well as Armory’s summer camp and 30 youth art classes. armoryart.org


Cause & Effect

good time: Women with Wings and Wisdom Luncheon

❰ good deed: WXEL public television ❱ Dear WXEL, We appreciate the books you give us. We like reading a lot of books even when we are home. So we would like to read the book you send us. Thank you. Sincerely, Mike As part of its Read to Learn Program, WXEL distributes free books to local children whose parents do not read or write in English in hopes of helping them become ready to learn in the public school system. Ready to Learn has also helped many at-risk children by going into the community with child-care providers 26

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

and teaching parents how to use the PBS programming online. Recognizing that lower-income-level parents can’t always afford to send their preschool-aged children to educational programs, resulting in many of them sitting in front of a television all day, WXEL airs educational children’s programming five days a week for its potential viewership of more than 2.4 million. Television, in many respects, has become the community classroom. Without funding from events such as the Women with Wings and Wisdom Luncheon, WXEL’s kids’ programming and initiatives, including the Ready to Learn Program, would not be possible. wxel.org

A Personal Journey sometimes, challenges hit close to home. local women share their inspiration for making a difference. By Danielle Trubow

Shining Star Julie Healey was terrified when her 4-year-old daughter, Daisy, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2003. But she was equally troubled when she overheard another woman sobbing to her doctor that she couldn’t afford her own daughter’s medical bills. That year, Healey, with the support of six friends, decided to turn her annual holiday party into a fundraiser for the Parent-Child Center’s Pediatric Oncology Support Team at the Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center. This is how the Be A Star Foundation was born. Though Healey and her husband used to donate to charities anonymously, they took more of an active role when she started the foundation. By sending letters to guests to explain Be A Star’s purpose, she and her friends organized a holiday party that was bigger than any she had ever hosted. “My goal was to raise $100,000 and we had only 85 people,” Healey says. “We raised $250,000. We were just blown away.” Now in its ninth year, the Be A Star Foundation has since raised more than $5 million for critically ill children who live locally. The funds, donated to POST and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, are used to support families in financial crisis, provide counseling programs and medical procedural support, plan social events, help families with bereavement and more. Daisy is now 13 and was declared cancer-free in July 2011. The experience inspired her, like her mother, to get involved: She aspires to start a local survivorship program that educates children and provides them with emotional support. Although the Be A Star Foundation won’t host a big gala this year, Healey plans to organize a major celebration next year, for the nonprofit’s tenth anniversary. She also set a goal to run the Palm Beaches Marathon to raise more local support, media coverage and funds for Be A Star. “That’s how strongly I believe in this cause,” Healey says. “[Daisy is] the reason I do everything, and she’s the most amazing child.”

Raising a Voice Jacquie Liggett first heard the whisper when she felt a pinch in her side. Passionate about exercise, Liggett understood her body well and suspected something was not right. Her instincts were

correct, as the whisper became a scream: She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Hearing the ovarian cancer whisper is often difficult because the symptoms seem so ordinary. Bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain and urinary problems seldom spark a concern until the pain becomes severe and persistent. By the time a woman is diagnosed, the undetected cancer may have already spread beyond the ovaries. Believing she could use her diagnosis to benefit others, Liggett told her closest friends about her desire to better educate women in Palm Beach County about ovarian cancer symptoms. With their help as well as the aid of Palm Healthcare Foundation, Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper (H.O.W.) was formed. Though Liggett passed away in 2007—seven years after her diagnosis—her friends have continued her fight against the disease by promoting awareness through the nonprofit. H.O.W. has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through events such as luncheons that feature medical and celebrity speakers, including Andie MacDowell last year and Fran Drescher in 2011. The funds support women who suffer from ovarian cancer and cannot afford the treatment, fellowships for doctors who perform research in Florida, scholarships for medical students and other efforts. In addition to widening its local influence, H.O.W. will also begin expanding to other areas in Florida. “Jacquie fought very hard. She was a tremendous advocate and such an inspiration,” says Fern Fodiman, vice president of H.O.W. “She would be so proud and happy because we continued on and have taken this organization to another level.”

Pretty in Pink When Stephanie Robin was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and tested positive for BRCA, the breast cancer gene, her friend Elizabeth Weprin suggested they host a luncheon to share Robin’s story with other women. Through their 2005 luncheon, they raised not only funds—$40,000 for JACOB International and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation—but also awareness. Amy Seidman, a breast cancer survivor, and Kathy Fleishman were so inspired by the campaign that they joined the effort, and the four women founded Think Pink Rocks, a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness for early detection of breast cancer.

Jacquie would be very proud. She was a tremendous advocate and such an inspiration.

After hosting a second successful Think Pink Rocks luncheon in 2007, they brainstormed ways to raise more awareness in the community. Weprin reached out to Steve Rifkind, the president of SRC/Universal Records, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, and he helped sponsor and organize a major benefit concert in 2008. The first Think Pink Rocks concert was hosted by Queen Latifah and featured artists such as Akon, Flo Rida and Shontelle, making for an informative and celebratory evening. Since its founding, Think Pink Rocks has helped sponsor two luncheons, four concerts and two New York half-marathons. The team has also raised more than $1 million to support the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other charitable organizations. Although there won’t be a concert this year, their journey is far from over. “We are very excited about the success we’ve had and not just financially,” Weprin says. “There are people we know of—because of the concert—who have learned that the BRCA gene exists.”

Finding Hope Audrey Gruss’ mother, Hope, had been ill with depression for years. Though she received the best treatments available, Hope passed away in 2005 following years of misdiagnosis, pain and trial medications. It was only after her death that Gruss began to consult with doctors and psychiatrists about the progress made in depression research. As she pressed for information, she began to realize how few advances there had been since the introduction of Prozac in 1987. 30

celebratory way. “It can be a very emotional subject for people, and we thought that this would be an uplifting experience,” Weprin says.

“I had helped many charities and I thought to myself, ‘All of these years, my mother was going through this right under my nose,’” Gruss says. “I never realized the crisis that depression research was in.” With this in mind, Gruss founded the Hope for Depression Research Foundation to support international neuroscience research on the origins, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of depression. The foundation has raised $5 million for research targeting emotion and the causes of depression and formed a task force composed of eight doctors from different universities. The task force has been assessing pharmaceutical innovations for the past two years and will report on its findings November 28 in Palm Beach. In addition to researching, Hope for Depression is also raising awareness about depression. HDRF has hosted 10 major fundraisers in six years in New York and Palm Beach and has plans to expand its silent auctions to antique shows throughout the country. “For every day and every dollar I spend, I feel that I am doing something to assuage the pain my mother had,” Gruss says. “This is something I will do for the rest of my life. I will not stop until I find a cure for depression.” u


Gruss’ business experience and marketing skills have come together with her science background to inspire the way she runs Hope for Depression.

“You need people to talk about depression and support it and go to events that make it acceptable,” Gruss says. “There is an underlying stigma, and I am [trying] to fight that stigma by creating wonderful events and asking everyone to dress up and hear about the Hope.”

Team Up Local businesses partner with deserving nonprofits to make a difference in our community. By LIZA GRANT SMITH

The Breakers President Paul Leone (below, far left) breaks ground on the site of a Habitat for Humanity house with supporters and a deserving family.

The Breakers earned Habitat for Humanity’s Dreambuilder donor status for giving more than $500,000 to the nonprofit.

Arnold Hiatt, former CEO of Stride Rite, once said, “Our nation will succeed or fail to the degree that all of us—citizens and businesses alike—are active participants in building strong, sustainable and enriching communities.” Luckily, this is a philosophy to which more companies are subscribing. While community service used to be an employee resumé filler and recurring corporate guest star, it has now achieved leading role status, garnering its own dedicated storyline and fan base. Not surprisingly, we don’t have to look any farther than our own backyard to find impressive examples. What follows is the story of three local companies that have embraced volunteerism by creating an environment that fosters its growth. The resultant companies are more than just placeholders in society; they contribute to its (and our) betterment. The Breakers and Habitat for Humanity While the team members at The Breakers take care to provide guests with every (luxurious) comfort of home, they take just as much pride in their construction of comfortable homes for those in need. To date, The Breakers has sponsored and built 10 Habitat for Humanity homes. This has included contributions of financial

underwriting and furnishings, as well as more than 2,300 volunteer hours by team members. Stacey Crissinger knows firsthand what this generosity means. The single mother of three and an administrative assistant at HearUSA, Crissinger lives in one of the homes constructed, in part, by Breakers team members. Since moving in, she has been able to save money and provide her children with “the extras,” like the funds to participate in field trips, sports and clubs. Prior to becoming a Habitat homeowner, almost all her income went directly to standard living expenses. “I believe my kids deserve something of their own. As a single mom, it’s not easy and this opportunity is a true blessing,” Crissinger says. “This is real stability, and it is a life-changing experience that I am truly grateful for.” Employee volunteerism at The Breakers is an integral part of the company’s culture. In fiscal year 2010-11, team members contributed 5,744 community service hours, benefiting more than 80 charities and 1,418 events throughout our community. Each year, in conjunction with the annual financial report, Breakers President Paul Leone presents an annual report on corporate social responsibility to his board and team members. In the 2011 report, Leone writes, “Social responsibility is one of PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

the most fulfilling principles of our organization and it sustains the mutually rewarding relationships that The Breakers fosters with its team members, the environment and our community at large. With each of these constituencies, our commitments grow bigger and our connections get deeper, all to drive change for the better.” thebreakers.com; habitatpbc.org FPL and the Power to Care Anyone who has ridden out a local hurricane may have had a moment of hero worship for members of the FPL team. Their excellence, however, is not limited to times of natural disaster. In 2011, FPL employees dedicated in excess of 20,000 hours to various charitable organizations. One example of this occurred in March, when more than 80 FPL volunteers worked under the direction of the young women and men of YouthBuild USA to repaint and landscape the gardens of six Riviera Beach homes. YouthBuild, a national nonprofit, recruits unemployed and undereducated 16- to 24-year-olds to build and enhance affordable housing so they can acquire work and social skills while pursuing their GED or high school diploma. “We appreciate FPL’s hands-on partnership to help Riviera Beach YouthBuild give back and assist us in making a difference,” 34

PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

says Miguel Rada, program director of the Riviera Beach YouthBuild. “One of our program’s components is to take an active role in revitalizing our community, and it is great to have FPL share in the same value of service.” This project was only one of the 22 that more than 900 FPL employees and family members participated in throughout Florida this year from March 26-31 as part of the company’s fourth annual Power to Care initiative. The first Power to Care Day, organized in conjunction with National Volunteer Week in 2009, had such an amazing level of participation and impact that FPL made it an annual event. Each year, employees from all sectors of the company, including FPL President Eric Silagy, roll up their sleeves and volunteer. “At FPL, our first priority is to provide our customers with safe, reliable electricity and the lowest bills in the state. We are also dedicated to supporting the communities we serve, the places our customers and employees live and work,” says Pamela Rauch, vice president of development and external affairs for FPL. “All of the organizations we are supporting have tremendous needs and provide great services to the community. Our employees are so excited to have this opportunity to lend a helping hand.” fpl.com; rbyouthbuild.org


KaBOOM!

What once was an empty lot in West Palm Beach is now a colorful playground thanks to PNC, KaBOOM! and the Police Athletic League.

it was so rewarding to stand back and look at what we had accomplished.

PNC and Grow Up Great The PNC Financial Services Group team has realized that investing in the smallest people can reap the biggest dividends. Launched in 2004, Grow Up Great is a $350 million, multiyear initiative designed to help prepare underserved children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. While more than $43 million in grants has been distributed to Head Start and other organizations that support early childhood education, the backbone of the Grow Up Great program is the volunteer support. PNC permits 40 hours a year of paid time off for volunteerism. Employees who volunteer at least 40 hours within a 12-month period at a qualified nonprofit early education program also earn a $1,000 grant donated to the preschool in the employee’s name. In the last seven years, roughly 21,000 PNC employees have volunteered, logging in more than 240,000 volunteer hours at early childhood education centers. In Palm Beach County alone, 175

volunteers posted 828 hours last year. Caroline Andre, a portfolio reporting analyst for PNC, is one of those dedicated volunteers. Andre’s favorite volunteering memory is building a playground for the children of North Tamarind Avenue on a chilly, rainy February day. Through a collaborative effort of the Police Athletic League, PNC and the nonprofit KaBOOM! (which has built 2,100 play spaces across North America), an army of volunteers transformed a drab lot in the troubled neighborhood into a safe and lively play area. “After the construction, it was so rewarding to stand back and look at what we had accomplished. The excitement in the children’s eyes made it all worthwhile,” Andre says. “It was one of my proudest moments of being a PNC employee. “I believe early childhood education is essential to the development of children. As a parent, you want the best opportunities for your children, and I believe PNC helps to provide that.” pncgrowupgreat.com; kaboom.org PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER
