On the cover Each year, local artists submit their work to be considered for the Palm Beach Charity Register cover competition. This tradition aims to highlight the vibrant arts community, and readers vote for their favorite via an online poll. The winning piece, Breakout, was created by artist Lynne Barletta of Stuart, founder and director of Visionary School of Arts and founder of Catch the Wave of Hope, an organization that works to end human trafficking. S explains that her painting represents any person in need of hope, as the subject reaches to break free, uplifted by ommunity support. Barletta says, “She is literally breaking out of bondage due to the charities and hearts that have caused her to rise from oppression.” (lbarletta.com)

Good Neighbors

W

hen anticipating a hurricane on its shores, Floridians know the drill: Prepare for the worst and hope for best. As Hurricane Dorian formed in the Atlantic, we kept a watchful eye on the news and got ready for its potential impact. Then, we waited. And waited. Meanwhile, Dorian terrorized the Bahamas with category 5–force winds and torrential flooding, causing major destruction in its path. Instead of setting its sights on the Palm Beaches though, Dorian finally diverted north and east, and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief. We were dealt the best possible scenario, but the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama received the worst. Almost immediately, the community sprang into action to help, donating unused supplies, funds, and even chartering yachts to deliver goods and personnel. The Bahamas hold a special place in the hearts of Floridians, and many were eager to transform their gratitude into outreach. Take Holly Miller Weston, owner of The Yoga Society, for example. In a single—very sweaty—Saturday morning yoga class, she raised $1,000 for Elbow Cay, the site where Dorian fi st made landfall. Or chef Julien Gremaud of Avocado Grill. Just two days after the storm passed, he boarded the fi st Bahamas Relief Cruise (bahamasreliefcruise.org) with the mission to bring supplies to the islands and evacuees to safe ground. While there, he spent three days cooking for those in need. Or the countless people who donated vital food, water, and toiletries to Eagles’ Wings Foundation (ewfrelief.org), an organization that provides emergency disaster support. Efforts to help are still underway, and knowing the determination of area residents, they won’t cease until the islands have fully recovered. In the season ahead, we hope that you will pursue your philanthropic endeavors with as much fervor as these individuals did. The Palm Beach Charity Register’s annual guide to local nonprofits and their fundraising events, beginning on page 43, is a great place to get started. This year, we present 186 charity galas, luncheons, and parties to fill our calendar and ignite your passions. In need of further inspiration? Flip to page 22 to witness the bravery of Palm Beach County middle school students who shared their personal stories about youth violence and suggestions for solutions through the Do the Write Thing program. Other superstars turning humanitarian ideas into tangible results include local restaurateurs. On page 38, read about how Rocco’s Tacos, Buccan, and Duffy’s give back to worthy causes with the help of their patrons. One lesson we can learn from these stories—and from the outpouring of support following Hurricane Dorian—is that adversity begets altruism. The generosity of our community truly knows no bounds. I’m just thankful to be a part of it.

It’s a major milestone year for this event. Expect a little extra hoopla. We have a theme! Cheetah print is a go. Since it’s a gala, assume black-tie attire.

Two spots have been reserved for you. Feel free to bring a plus one.

Do your research. Make sure you’re in the loop and can speak knowledgeably on this organization and its charitable efforts. Block the date now to avoid last-minute mix-ups.

Guests will transfer from one spot to another, so expect a short walk.

Go with a planned donation amount in mind, place your best bets, and look forward to heading home with some killer prizes. When timing is emphasized, arrange to arrive a few minutes ahead of schedule.

Part of the party will take place outdoors—look up the weather and dress accordingly.

Stilettos may not be the best footwear option.

Notify the organizer of any food allergies.

Intriguing. Plan to stay late so you don’t miss it.

Map your route beforehand or hire a driver so you know where you’re going and don’t need to stress about arriving on time.

This event needs an exact headcount, so make sure the organizer knows whether or not to save a spot for you.

can do to end the cycle of youth violence. While the writing prompt’s focus shifts from year to year, the main questions remain the same: How has violence affected your life? What are the causes of youth violence? What can you do to reduce youth violence? “Students face the problem head-on and talk in personal terms about how violence has affected them,” explains Bone. “The students who answer the three questions state that the process of writing is both cathartic and informative. The solutions [they offer] almost always focus on peace, harmony, and understanding.” The program has grown across the country and in Palm Beach County, where more than 32,000 students answered the questions and participated in classroom discussion this year. In April, 330 finalists were recognized at a luncheon at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center, with the top 10 finalists receiving cash prizes. Every year, two finalists travel

A light is shed on youth violence through the Do the Write Thing program, which provides Palm Beach County middle schoolers with the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings through writing. The theme of this year’s essay prompt was suicide and self-harm, a sensitive but increasingly important issue facing today’s youth. This writing challenge allowed students to reflect on how this kind of violence has affected their lives and the lives of those they are close to. Bill Bone, the campaign’s local chairman and a West Palm Beach–based personal injury lawyer, notes that self-harm is a recurring theme in society. “It happens when someone feels there is no hope,” says Bone, a father of four who has been involved with Do the Write Thing since it began in Palm Beach County in 2006. “Inviting students to tell their personal stories is a valid way for someone without hope to be heard. One of the most valuable things adults do is validate and acknowledge the bravery of the students who reveal their personal stories.” Do the Write Thing is a national campaign that challenges students to examine what they

to Washington, D.C. to serve as ambassadors at a national recognition ceremony. The ambassadors this year were Magaly Diaz-Perez of Howell L. Watkins Middle School and Rohith Karthik of Bak Middle School of the Arts. While Bone acknowledges that students often “confess that they did not want to participate,” giving them the chance to write and share their stories leaves them feeling empowered. For his part, Bone states that Do the Write Thing has opened his eyes to the problems facing the community and the myriad ways middle schoolers witness violence in their day-to-day lives. “It is not just bullying; it is gang violence, intrafamily abuse, drugs, and other serious criminal conduct,” he says. “The adults who read about these experiences really had no idea how prevalent violence is in the lives of students. These writings have inspired us all to do more.”

Investing in Philanthropy

In the world of charitable donations, return on investment can take many forms By Judy Martel

Audrey Gruss has dedicated her life to philanthropy, but her latest mission carries the highest expectation for a return because it’s the closest to her heart. Named in honor of her late mother, the Hope for Depression Research Foundation aims to bring various researchers together to uncover the origins of depression and, ultimately, find a cure. Gruss’ mother suffered most of her adult life from the debilitating illness. She established the foundation a year after her mother’s death in 2005, and today she can readily cite both its tangible and intangible results. With the $5 million in annual grants from the foundation—which has offi es in Palm Beach and New York—plus 100 percent of the net profi s from the sale of the Hope fragrance line, researchers have discovered that low levels of a particular compound in the blood may be an indication of depression. In the near future, doctors may be able to detect depression with a blood test. In addition to these findings, Gruss believes her high-profile fundraising efforts have encouraged people to talk more openly about the illness. “It used to be you didn’t say the word ‘depression’ in polite society,” she says. A decade ago, most people with charitable inclinations gave to organizations or causes with the understanding that their money would be spent effectively. Now, donors aren’t content to be so passive and trusting. The new buzz words in philanthropy are “return on investment,” a concept that typically goes hand in hand with the accountability and results associated with monetary assets. This notion originated with venture philan24

thropists who came out of the run-up in the stock market before the tech investment bubble burst, says Gene Tempel, founding dean emeritus and professor of philanthropic studies at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. In the late 1990s, new tech companies with intangible business models were commanding investor attention, delivering sky-high earning promises that were often unsustainable. When the bubble burst in 2000, it left a wake of failed companies or evaporating returns. Eventually, the mentality regarding tracking valuations and results crept into the way people think about donating. In the past 10 years, Tempel says, donors have come to expect accountability and transparency from charitable groups. While they’re right to ask how their money is being used and to examine an organization’s financial health through

regular reports, Tempel cautions them to take the long view, especially since the fruit of charitable donations can be intangible. In some instances, results may take time or prove diffi ult to calculate. An investment in early education may not show verifi ble outcomes until those same students graduate from high school and college-entry rates are tallied. A small homeless shelter may be able to list how many meals it serves each month but unable to determine the measurable psychological and physical effect on that population. Part of the joy of investing in philanthropy comes in these hard-earned wins that can reverberate across generations. More often than not, the satisfaction of seeing someone earn a college degree, enjoy the arts, or benefit from medical research is a sufficient return in itself.

The Little Red Schoolhouse was the perfect location to transport guests back in time to learn more about the origins of Palm Beach and how pioneers shaped the area.

Good Time: Little Red Schoolhouse 1878 Dinner Good Deed: Palm Beach Preservation Foundation’s education programs In 1878, the Spanish ship Providencia wrecked off the Florida coast with cargo containing 20,000 coconuts, which were ultimately planted on a stretch of island that came to be known as Palm Beach. Drawing inspiration from this pivotal happening, the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation’s 1878 Series hosts invite-only events that delve into the island’s beginnings. The educational series breaks the mold by hosting its receptions for young supporters at landmarked homes and storied public spaces. Its second event was held at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The evening, sponsored by First Republic Bank, delivered cuisine influen ed by pioneer recipes and Floridian ingredients, and featured folk music by The Lubben Brothers and conversations 26

with a schoolmarm in the oldest remaining schoolhouse in southeast Florida. “Going to the Little Red Schoolhouse is somewhat like going to a secret garden,” says Emily Clifford, an 1878 Series committe member. “You drive by it all the time, but you never actually know what it is. Then one night you show up and there are string lights, a folk band is playing, and there is a little lady from 1886 welcoming you. It was really a unique experience.” In educating the younger generation of Palm Beachers about the island’s historical presence and roots, those behind the 1878 Series hope that this context will inform the town’s up-and-coming leaders as they continue to grow the community they call home. —Chloe Krammel

Habitat for Humanity

Good Time: Women Build Good Deed: Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County homes Though it may not be apparent from the outside, one of the many houses that sit on SW 5th Avenue in Delray Beach is slightly different from the rest. That’s because 217 women who participated in Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County’s 2019 Women Build during Mother’s Day week helped construct it. The fact that the structure would soon house a mother-daughter duo in need made this project all the more special for the group of women, known as the “sisterhood of the pink hard hats.” HFHSPBC board member Robyn Raphael-Dynan co-chaired this year’s Women Build with her mother, Beverly Raphael Altman. Together, they operate RCC Associates, a Deerfield Beach–based general contracting firm, where mom serves as CEO and daughter serves as vice president of operations. Being part of Women Build is as an outlet for their shared passions of building and giving back to the community. Raphael-Dynan and Raphael Altman are just one of many mother-daughter pairs who were involved in the 2019 build. This year, Ilomane, a housekeeper at Abbey Delray South who immigrated 28

from Haiti, and her daughter, Jessie, an oncology nurse at Delray Medical Center, built their new home alongside the women builders. The goal of the program is to create generational change and bring the family upward. “The ‘pay it forward’ investment that we make as women builders is that we know the family we’re helping will take the kindness and generosity that they’ve been shown and pay it forward to others,” Raphael-Dynan says. “It will build a stronger community, now and in the future.” The program gives families the opportunity for a better life, and it serves as a reminder of what it means to be a humanitarian. “It’s about women joining together to accomplish something that they perhaps thought they were not capable of doing,” adds Raphael-Dynan. “Friendships are being formed and strengthened as everybody works together for one common goal. When you’re out building and you watch a sea of pink hard-hatted women getting out of their comfort zone, raising roof trusses, and wielding power tools, it’s exhilarating and empowering.” —Julia Baldwin

Ft FAITH

Faith. A powerful element in fighting cancer. Joyce Dean has more energy than most 70-year-olds. She’s full of stories about love, family and her days as the first African American professor at Edison Community College. 25 years ago, Joyce went for a routine annual physical. She was diagnosed with advanced multiple myeloma — a cancer with a grim prognosis at the time. She was referred to Florida Cancer Specialists, and she’s been a patient ever since. Living with cancer hasn’t been easy, but with over two decades of compassionate, cutting-edge care, and a little faith, Florida Cancer Specialists has shown Joyce that when hope and science join forces, great outcomes can happen. “Without Florida Cancer Specialists, I wouldn’t be here.”

Hope for Depression

Good Time: Race of Hope 5K Good Deed: Hope for Depression Research Foundation research funding The rain didn’t stop more than 300 people from showing up to the inaugural Race of Hope 5K in January. Nor did it stop the Hope for Depression Research Foundation’s founder and chair, Audrey Gruss, from waiting at the finish line to congratulate and celebrate the runners, her hand ready to highfive each individual. In 2006, Gruss founded HDRF, now the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to depression research, in remembrance of her mother, Hope, who struggled with depression. According to the World Health Organization, depression is the leading cause of disability around the world. Gruss has made it her mission to spread awareness about depression and support scientific research regarding new treatments, as it’s estimated that 50 percent of people who are diagnosed do not respond to the medications currently available. After three successful years of hosting the Race of Hope in Southampton, New York, Gruss decided to bring the event to Palm Beach. The race raised

$275,000 to fund HDRF’s work. For Gruss, each dollar represents a step toward new depression treatments and a chance to honor her mother’s legacy. “I never realized that such pain could bring such direction and positive energy in my life,” Gruss says. “This was right under my nose, and I never knew that it needed me, or that I could make a difference. I’m very proud to say that I think we have and that we will continue to make strides in defining what causes depression. Sometimes in life, you can take a really diffi ult, negative thing and turn it into a positive, and I’m a living example of it.” On a rainy day in Palm Beach, light was shed on a dark disease as people banded together and offered Gruss their full support. Gruss felt that her mother was beaming down on them. “It’s like we were all part of something that we couldn’t believe was happening,” Gruss says. “I quoted my husband, who had given me this old Native American saying: ‘Those who think sunshine brings happiness have never danced in the rain.’” —Julia Baldwin

These three restaurateurs and eateries are serving local and national foundations through their philanthropic endeavors By Chloe Krammel

Rocco’s Tacos A one-time busboy turned restaurateur, businessman, and philanthropist, Rocco Mangel is unstoppable. In August 2016, after becoming temporarily paralyzed on the left side of his body and learning he had multiple sclerosis, Mangel was determined to keep busy and find hope within his diagnosis—both for himself and for others. “When I got diagnosed with MS, I don’t know if I had a spiritual awakening, but I realized it is about leaving a mark on this world that will make a difference for other people,” says Mangel. “I try to do better every day and, for whatever reason, I don’t need anything more. I have come from nothing and now I have something.” Mangel’s parents met in the restaurant business, so hospitality is in his blood. He’s found success in Rocco’s Tacos, his nuevo Mexican restaurant and tequila bar concept, and now operates locations across Florida and in Brooklyn. This success has allowed him to pursue his charitable interests, including raising more than $500,000 for the National Multi38

ple Sclerosis Society. While living with this central nervous system disease, which affects nearly one million people in the United States, Mangel fundraises toward the goal of making MS easier to manage and, eventually, finding a cure. He participates in various MS events such as the annual South Florida gala luncheon and West Palm Beach walk. Through his philanthropic efforts—and his work at Rocco’s— Mangel remains thankful for what he’s achieved and hopeful for what’s to come. “I may not know what tomorrow will look like, but I do know what today looks like,” he says. “I know that I am going to be okay.”

Chickens, pigs, sheep, and some 2,000 fruit trees made up the scene of chef Clay Conley’s childhood. It was there, surrounded by bounty on a small farm in rural Maine, that his passion for food took flight. Credited with sparking a Palm Beach dining revolution with the opening of Buccan in 2011, Conley has taken this momentum and applied it toward a good cause. Every year, Conley gathers chefs from around the country and creates a five-course meal at Buccan for No Kid Hungry, a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to end hunger and poverty around the world. “Philanthropy feels good,” Conley says. “It is the right thing to do. My job is not just to raise money but to raise awareness in an area where people love to give money to local charities.” In addition to showcasing the culinary prowess of Conley and his friends, the Palm Beach No Kid Hungry Dinner works directly to combat childhood hunger. In Palm Beach County alone, 64,000 children are food insecure. This special culinary event, held every November, aims to decrease that number and eliminate this issue across America. So far, this dinner has raised close to $1.25 million toward that goal.

dation, a community-enhancement fund that benefi s organizations with a positive impact. Through the foundation’s main program, Change for Charity, customers can round up their bill and contribute that amount to charity. “It really is collecting pennies from many, many transactions,” says Emmett. “At Duffy’s, we serve over 6 million meals a year. It can be 5 cents or $2, but all of that money adds up. We can count on $100,000 a year from these pennies. When you look at it, it is so wonderful that customers care.” The Duffy’s Foundation has raised $870,000 since its inception, with $373,000 coming from Change for Charity. The foundation’s main partners are the Girl Scouts of South and Central Florida, Special Olympics Florida, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Secondary partners include Meals on Wheels, Palm Beach School for Autism, the American Red Cross, and Forgotten Soldiers. “The most important effect I feel from the foundation is awareness,” notes Emmett. “We bring awareness to the causes we stand behind, and that hopefully will generate more funds for these charities because we brought them to the front line of attention.”

FINAL SCENES

Grand Entrance Though this past season’s galas brought

a welcome dose of grandeur to our lives, one fundraiser stood out among the rest for its imagination. PBCR’s Award for Best Decor goes to … the 2019 Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach. Riding hot on the heels of the inaugural show house's wild popularity in late 2017, the second annual design home proved to be even more magnifice t than its predecessor. The fundraiser, which benefited both the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, kicked off with a big eveal at the Opening Night Preview Party prior to welcoming the public. Throughout the following month, visitors floc ed to the 10,000-squarefoot, Mediterranean-style home along the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach’s South End neighborhood to peruse the jaw-dropping rooms created by 22 top interior design firms f om around the country. From the Lee W. Robinson–designed birdcage, which housed blissfully chirping avian residents, and the living moss wall by NICKOLAS SARGENT

Lindsay Scherr Burgess of Green Wallscapes (both left), to a playful bar anchoring a Kelly green hallway by Billy Ceglia Designs (above), an Instagram-worthy heaven awaited at every turn. —Liz Petoniak
