PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. (January 23, 2019) – On Saturday, December 15, 2018, The Junior League of the Palm Beaches, Inc. (JLPB) celebrated the half-way mark of their 78th year in Palm Beach County. JLPB members and their families adorned festive white at the Jupiter Beach Resort to keep on trend with the theme of a Winter White Wonderland. In typical JLPB fashion, members impacted our community by using our Annual Holiday Luncheon as a toy drive for the local Boys & Girls Club.
Over 120 family and friends of JLPB gathered at the Jupiter Beach Resort to enjoy a wonderful lunch filled with local holiday entertainment and merriment. Guests were welcomed by the Special Events Committee Co-Chairs, Virginia Oatley and Alexandra Mata. During the luncheon new members, actives and sustainers reflected on the past six months with a touching and motivating speech by JLPB President, Courtney Stafford Hickey. Guests also enjoyed a special performance by The Maltz Jupiter Theater Youth Touring Company and visits with Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
To complement JLPB’s ongoing work with the DeGeorge Boys and Girls Club, members were asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the luncheon. Over 200 toys were donated and almost $800 was raised; this ensured that a smile was brought to local children’s faces during the holiday season.
“Our Annual Holiday Luncheon was a great success and it would not have been possible without our generous sponsors,” stated co-chairs, Virginia Oatley and Alexandra Mata. “We are truly grateful to Rudolph Law for being our Platinum Snow Globe Sponsor, Mrs. Susan Taylor, Mrs. Kathryn Vecellio and The Falk Foundation for supporting JLPB by each individually being a Gold Snowman Sponsor.”
