On the cover

For the Palm Beach Charity Register’s Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition cover, we continued a tradition that began three years ago. Taking to the web, we called for submissions from local artists, and readers voted on their favorite. The winning piece, Vibrant Community, was created by Agata Ren, a Boca Raton-based artist whose work contains a poignant message, whether about endangered species or neighborly love. Originally, the artwork was imprinted on one of 15 art chair sculptures Ren digitally painted for #ArtCitywide, a project commissioned by the Public Art Advisory Board of Delray Beach with the intention to connect the city’s unique neighborhoods. The sculpture, inspired by the West Atlantic Redevelopment Coalition, will be permanently installed in Pompey Park.

Hurricanes & Hummingbirds

LILA PHOTO

M

ake Way for Ducklings may be his most famous title, but Robert McCloskey’s Time of Wonder made a lasting impression on me as a child. The question posed by the story’s protagonist, Sal, has stayed with me for almost 45 years: “Where do hummingbirds go during a hurricane?” When I was younger, the question sparked a sense of awe about the woodlands near our home and the natural world at large. Now, as an adult transplanted to a hurricane-prone region, the concept of shelter against the storm has taken on new meaning and greater importance. I arrived in Florida 25 years ago just in time to experience the effects and aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. Jeanne, Charlie, Katrina, Wilma, Matthew, and Irma have left us with memories of shuttered windows, power outages, and long lines for food and fuel. Above those inconveniences, however, are the recollections of lending hands and sympathetic neighbors. The borrowed tools, the assistance with a downed tree limb, or the support offered to those who had, in some cases, lost everything. Storms bring out the best in us. Adversity often binds communities together, both in preparation and recovery. For 25 years, the Palm Beach Charity Register has bound together philanthropists in the Palm Beaches. When there is need, suffering, or a solution that needs to be found, our community comes together to help. Within these pages you will find many worthy organizations that support the residents of Palm Beach County at all stages of life. We are fortunate to live in an area where the ability to give is great, because there will always be challenges that require our attention. All the best,

Taste Test

The most unforgettable culinary moments of the season make a long journey before they are ever set in front of gala attendees. Kym Bichon, director of event sales for The Breakers, gives us a behind-the-scenes peek at the pre-event tasting—one of the most critical stops in a menu’s odyssey. —Liza Grant Smith

LILA PHOTO

PBCR: Describe a pre-event tasting for an extravagant gala. Bichon: We present a tasting at The Breakers like a small event in the Circle Ballroom. Our chefs diligently work on the menu items for hours. Attendees typically include the gala chairwoman, the food committee, and often the gala honoree. How many dishes are presented and how are they selected? The event sales managers create the tasting menu based on the theme. We present two to three options for appetizers, an entree, and dessert in addition Sweet pea risotto to wine pairings for each. The goal is to select a one-of-a kind, spectacular menu. Our team tracks the selections from each charity to avoid duplication. What are the key elements of a successful gala menu? Balancing food selections that are familiar with food items that have a wow factor.

How do you deliver culinary surprises? Creating favorite foods in mini sizes is always a great surprise. A few fun twists are mini Maine lobster rolls, milkshake shots, and the legendary mini cheeseburgers. What should tasters keep in mind to ensure an apropos menu? The gala committee should bear in mind they’re selecting items for a guest list of 300 or more, with varied tastes and preferences. While the menu should give a nod to the theme, having a fully themed menu may not be a crowd pleaser. What are some creative options you have executed? We love to have fun with desserts and surprise guests with a presentation that is equally beautiful and delicious. For example, during a Flagler-themed event, we served coconut crème brûlée in a fresh half coconut with a chocolate palm tree. For a Versailles garden-themed event, we presented an edible chocolate flower pot with dulce de leche filling, crushed Oreo cookie “soil,” candy flowers, and colorful sugar chards. Watching how excited attendees are when the servers present these types of creations is definitely one of the best rewards.

HABITS OF HIGHLY STYLISH PEOPLE

Just because you weren’t privy to a front row seat at New York Fashion Week doesn’t mean you should lose valuable style points at this season’s events. Insider Alexandra Lind Rose, co-founder of Armarium, the luxury fashion-for-rent and styling service, shares the latest evening wear trends to keep you au courant at parties. —L.G.S.

1

Shine brightly. Pastels are definitely passé. Look for vivid hues like cherry red, bright emerald, hot pink, and gold.

2

Read the fine print. Pattern play is a must. Drive toward rose floral prints or stripes in either multicolor rainbow or black and white.

3

Embrace the “more is more” idea. Whether layered fringe, folklore-inspired crochet, feathers, sequins, or lace accents, this season’s looks delight in the details. Even the LBD is getting a makeover with rich

embellishment, embroidery, or transparency.

4

Get un-dressed. Have you grown gown-tired? According to Lind Rose, pantsuits with wide-legged trousers and high-shine charmeuse are smart (and swanky) alternatives to dresses.

5

Have fun with accessories. Lind Rose’s advice for this season: “Freedom is key. Mix colors, shapes, and value. Pile on a variety of neck pieces. Experiment with statement fringe earrings.”

About Face

PBCR: Is there a trick to achieving a healthy glow without the shine? Quinn: The secret to maintaining glowing skin is in the prep. After moisturizer, apply [Giorgio Armani] Maestro UV primer—it provides for 18-hour wear. I also love our Power Fabric foundation for galas, as the coverage and wear is unbeatable. It’s a semi-matte finish, so using fluid sheer enhancers on the tops of cheeks and brow bones will keep the glow where you want it. Instead of powder, try the Prima Refreshing Makeup Fix spray. It will set your makeup without the powdered matte finish. What’s the trend in evening eye makeup? For a nighttime eye, think less smoky. Go for a clean, defined eye with lots of lash and a bit of color at the lash line with well-defined brows. Try using a slightly shimmering eye tint on the lid.  What feature would you recommend accentuating for a dramatic yet stylish look? Go bold on the lips! Any tips for a lip color that will last through the evening and make teeth appear whiter? Our new long-wear Lip Magnet is genius. The color is fully saturated and provides hours of non-transfer wearability. Use a color that is blue based to make your teeth look whiter and brighter, and avoid peach tones. What skincare regime helps create a gorgeous palette for makeup? I love a brightening mask applied for 10 minutes, followed by a firming eye serum and a light-reflecting eye cream. What beauty products should always be in a woman’s clutch? Concealer, as it can come in handy for any touching up; your lipstick; cotton swabs; and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk compact powder, just in case. What look should women steer clear of? Avoid the overly contoured look for gala season. It never looks as good as it does in a Photoshopped picture.

BFA

Want to step out with red carpet-worthy makeup this season? Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani’s Celebrity Face Artist and a parttime Boca Raton resident, has street cred among Hollywood’s elite, with A-list clients like Gwen Stefani, Uma Thurman, and January Jones. Quinn shares his tips and beauty must-haves for creating looks that wow—and wear well. —L.G.S.

CONCEALER “Giorgio Armani High-Precision Retouch illuminating concealer ($40, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com) is great to throw in your clutch for touch-ups; it has a small mirror and a brush.”

QUINN’S BEAUTY MUST-HAVES BODY OIL “Ashy legs are never chic. Tammy Fender Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil ($68, tammyfender.com) is one of my secret weapons.”

EYE CREAM “I love the gorgeous sheen Kiehl’s avocado eye cream ($48, kiehls.com) delivers.”

024-Insider-2018.indd 25

LIPSTICK “Our classic Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy #400 ($38, giorgio armanibeauty-usa.com) is always appropriate.”

Charity Begins

COURTESY O THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

oward the end of her life, when cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post began to plot a legacy for the palatial, 1920s Palm Beach estate she built and named Mar-a-Lago, she probably never could have predicted the circuitous and complicated route it would take. Initially, Post offered the home to the state of Florida, which refused it due to the high cost of annual maintenance. Undaunted, she convinced the federal government to accept it in 1972—a year before her death—and realize her vision of the mansion as a “winter White House.” But less than a decade later, the government returned the gift to her foundation, again blaming high operating costs. After languishing for a few more years, real estate mogul and eventual United States president Donald Trump snapped it up in 1985 for a fraction of its value. In a strange twist, the mansion has now become an unofficial winter White House—at least for the current president.

Mar-a-Lago, 1967

Forty years on, donating a home to charity is still not a smooth path. But for the wealthy, it can be a smart way to make a sizeable charitable impact without raiding cash or investment portfolios, while potentially reaping a slew of tax benefits at the same time. The key is to have the professionals in place who can navigate through the tax and legal strategies of the various donation methods. Donors have a few options for making a charitable gift of their home: an outright donation

at Home

With careful consideration, gifting a property can ensure its perpetuity and make a big charitable impact By Judy Martel during life; a gift of a remainder interest; an irrevocable trust that removes the home from their taxable estate; or through a will. The legal and tax implications will vary, depending on the choice, according to Grayson McCouch, professor of law at University of Florida. To receive the maximum tax deduction, you'll want to donate the home to an IRS-qualified charity. And the IRS will always require a professional home appraisal.

Dos and Don’ts of Donating There are tax advantages to donating a home to charity no matter how you choose to do it, but you’ll get more if you give during life rather than bequeathing at death, according to McCouch.“If you give during your life, you’ll get the income tax deduction,” he says. Depending on the type of charity, a donation could mean an immediate deduction of the fair market value of the property, up to 20 percent or 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Beyond the income tax deduction, there are other tax benefits. If your estate exceeds the federal estate tax exemption ($5.49 million per person in 2017), a charitable donation will remove a major asset from your taxable estate, allowing you to avoid or minimize death taxes. Owners of highly appreciated mansions can avoid the capital gains taxes that would be incurred on a sale, which could be a significant savings if gains exceed the current exclusion of $250,000 per person or $500,000 per couple on primary residences that meet the eligibility requirements. But beware that if the home comes with a mortgage, “it could complicate things and the charity

may not want to accept your gift,” says McCouch. “You might want to get rid of the mortgage before donating the property.”

It’s Complicated With sophisticated strategies, donors can make a future gift and retain the right to live in the home, though they’ll have a reduced upfront tax deduction and are still responsible for the home’s expenses. Another more complex option is a charitable remainder trust: Because the trust is irrevocable, the assets placed in it are removed from the taxable estate. Finally, there is a specific and previously little-used type of charitable donation for real property—conservation and historic preservation easements—that has piqued the interest of the wealthy due to a number of fairly high-profile cases, says McCouch. This strategy helps owners preserve the heritage of the property forever. In fact, the strategy is one Donald Trump employed for Mar-a-Lago, after he turned the property into an exclusive country club. By placing conservation and historic preservation easements on it and then donating the easement to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, he gives up his right to ever develop the property for any other purpose. But these restrictions come with tax benefits that have become more generous over the past decade, McCouch says. “Conservation and historic preservation easements are subject to different sets of restrictions,” says McCouch. “You need professional advice. But if you find a charity that will accept the home, it gives them the right to protect it in perpetuity.”

Good Time: Spring Luncheon Good Deed: Comprehensive Alcoholism Rehabilitation Programs

Much like those in recovery it aims to support, Comprehensive Alcoholism Rehabilitation Programs (CARP) is undergoing a rebirth of its own. Two years after restructuring, the nonprofit reinstated its annual Spring Luncheon to celebrate its renewal and advance its mission of helping underserved alcoholic and drug-dependent populations. CARP aims to accomplish that with two new gender-specific, 12-step recovery homes, announced at the 240-guest luncheon held at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach. “A lot of the people who support CARP know the importance of being treated like a human being and not as something less,” says the organization’s president, Kelly Landers, who currently oversees the buildings’ approval and construction. “They’re excited that we will be able to provide this service to the underserved.” 32

Established in 1972, CARP fosters long-term strength and sustainability, both with patients and the organization. The restructuring was an opportunity for board members like Landers, who has been on the board for 10 years and is also 10 years sober himself, to better assist alcohol- and drug-addicted members of the community. “Twenty-four men and 24 women, who wouldn’t have a place to go otherwise, are going to be able to come through the door, be treated with dignity, and stay for the time they need to get well,” he says. The luncheon raised $30,000 from donations, and veteran news anchor Laurie Dhue delivered an inspiring message. Says Landers, “There is something that happens when you help others; it just warms the heart. We are all blessed to be in the position to do that.” —Jennifer Vasbinder

The first-ever Shop the Day Away Luncheon brought philanthropists together at The Breakers to provide financial support to those undergoing cancer treatment.

Good Time: Shop the Day Away Luncheon

Good Deed: Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope This past Memorial Day, Melissa Parker and several other Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope board members surprised a Boynton Beach family, showing up at their front door to inform them that CAHH will be paying their rent and electric bill for an entire year. The family’s 15-year-old daughter—one of seven children—had been diagnosed with advanced thyroid cancer, ultimately forcing the mother to leave her job to care for the kids while the father worked as a custodian. Recognizing the immeasurable amount of emotional and financial stress cancer causes patients and their families, founders Charlie and Jean Fischer created CAHH to ease the burden by assisting with everyday expenses like rent, mortgage and car payments, and health insurance. That way, patients and their families can focus on recovering without having to decide 34

between paying medical bills or risk losing their home. Since 2003, CAHH has assisted nearly 2,000 Palm Beach County residents and their families in the fight to beat cancer through community support at events like the organization’s Shop the Day Away Luncheon. The event features one of the biggest silent auctions in Palm Beach— with more than 600 items—and a high-profile keynote speaker. At the inaugural luncheon, Brooke Shields held the audience of 500 rapt—and helped raise $600,000 for the cause. “It was fabulous, and we knew that every penny was going to help cancer patients,” says Parker, event co-chair. “There are several cancer survivors on the board, myself included, and it made this luncheon even more heartwarming.” —Dezi Bowman

At the 2017 Eat, Drink, and Be Giving Gala, Child Rescue Coalition shined a light on a seldom-discussed yet highly important issue: child predators and pornography.

Good Time: Eat, Drink, and Be Giving Gala

Good Deed: Child Rescue Coalition Palm Beach County—and the rest of the world—is a safer place for children thanks to Boca Raton-based Child Rescue Coalition. Armed with innovative technology refined at their late father Hank Asher’s software company, Carly Asher Yoost and Desiree Asher formed the nonprofit to give law enforcement agencies free access to sophisticated tools for hunting child predators. More than 10,000 officers and investigators worldwide have been trained in the organization’s technology, which is utilized in 77 countries and all 50 states. Recently, the organization received national attention as actress Blake Lively chose CRC as her charity of honor for Variety magazine’s Power of Women campaign. “Our mission is to get this technology into the hands of as many officers as possible all across the world so they can start catching child 36

predators in their area and rescuing children who are being abused,” says Asher Yoost, CRC CEO and founder. To date, the use of the nonprofit’s technology has resulted in the rescue of more than 2,100 children and the arrest of more than 9,300 predators. Sights were set on raising awareness at its second annual Eat, Drink, and Be Giving Gala, where keynote speaker John Walsh, host and creator of America’s Most Wanted, and Andrea Jessep’s ground-shaking survivor story brought CRC’s mission to life. These powerful orations helped the organization raise $215,000. “We cannot continue to operate at the most cutting-edge level of technology without the help of the community,” says Asher, who serves as managing director. “It is an expensive prospect to stay one step ahead of the bad guys, but it’s critical that we do.” —D.B.

Empathy. A powerful element in fighting cancer. Jeanie Harris has been the caregiver. As a Registered Nurse and an Oncology Certified Nurse with Florida Cancer Specialists, she has spent her career educating, delivering medication, empathizing and holding the hands of her patients. So when Jeanie found a lump in her breast, she knew Florida Cancer Specialists was the place where she would get science-driven care and the personal attention she needed to fight cancer. Now with the experience of being a cancer survivor, she connects with her patients on a deeper level, and she has a fresh perspective on how special each patient feels at Florida Cancer Specialists. In October and all year, we honor all of those who have fought this awful disease and all of those caregivers who help them in the fight. “I always knew Florida Cancer Specialists had quality caregivers, but being a patient gave me a fresh perspective.�

The institutions may be the same, but the vibe is all new. Today’s young friends groups are disrupting traditional takes on philanthropy and adding their own spin on the act of giving back.

Waterhouse: When I joined the Young Friends of the Norton, I also joined the acquisitions council. We raise funds to help acquire artwork like Spencer Finch’s Back to Kansas. Tell us about your philanthropy philosophy. These institutions are part of our community and our future. If we’re not giving back to them in meaningful ways, we may not have them in a few decades. It’s a longevity concern for me. Time, talent, or treasure: What’s most important for today’s philanthropists to give to a cause? Making the time to volunteer is huge. But treasure is important too, whether it’s in the form of art or dollars. That’s an ongoing legacy. How is the next generation disrupting the philanthropy scene? I would characterize it as “new energy.” My contemporaries are all looking to try something different. There is little interest for doing the tried and true.

We help out where we can: attending the events, paying the dues, and participating in the charity drives. Tell us about your philanthropy philosophy. In today’s political climate, it seems like so many important causes could be quickly swept under the rug or budgeted out of existence. Philanthropy has to kick in to meet the shortfalls. Time, talent, or treasure: What’s most important for today’s philanthropists to give to a cause? It’s important to give your time. It’s great when you can give your talent, and since I’m a photographer, I have archives of many homes photographed on Palm Beach. It’s important to preserve images like those and pass them down for future generations. And treasure—these groups need money to keep going. It’s really a combination of all three. How is the next generation disrupting the philanthropy scene? My contemporaries are a lot more selective—a lot more conscious— about where we put our money and our time. There’s a wider gamut of organizations and events to choose from these days. You don’t have your “Big Five” like you did in the 1990s.

More than two-thirds of Sacred Heart School’s students are on state or corporate scholarship but there is still a shortfall. The Sacred Heart School Scholarship Fund was created to help fill that need. Parents, students, benefactors, and staff all run fundraisers to aid the scholarship fund. The Heroes Golf tournament is the biggest fundraiser, providing scholarships to students who couldn’t attend the school without assistance.

The Salvation Army has served the global and local communities for more than 150 years. From the famous Red Kettle collections for the poor to the first responders at Ground Zero in New York, from disaster services at floods, fires, and hurricanes to music camps for kids, from housing low-income families to training veterans for new jobs, the wide range of services provided by The Salvation Army anytime, anywhere to those in need is unequaled.

South Florida PBS enriches lives and strengthens diverse communities through on-air and online content, experiential learning, community engagement, and outreach. It is the region’s most trusted resource for information, entertainment, inspiration, and life-long learning, particularly for children. Its core programs are: kids and education, arts and culture, civic leadership and public safety, and health and environment.

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium fulfills its mission to open every mind to science by offering immersive activities for all ages. Every year, 300,000 visitors explore, discover, and are inspired by aquariums, the digital planetarium, an interactive Everglades exhibit, and the 18-hole environmentally themed Conservation Course, a putting course among a butterfly haven. The blockbuster exhibit “Astronaut” runs through April 15.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and it won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
