As one of the nationâ€™s most beloved and vibrant organizations, Best Buddies International was excited to launch its Palm Beach chapter alongside founder, Anthony K. Shriver, hosted by The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Singer Island, Palm Beach. With the Palm Beach community in demand for a program that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership training for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the cocktail reception raised funds to expand the organizationâ€™s programs.
Sponsored by Palm Beach Illustrated and themed around â€œAll you need is love,â€ the evening included a silent auction featuring a special art piece from Julian Lennonâ€™s new â€œAloneâ€ collection titled, â€œMidnight Smoke.â€
Anthony K. Shriver â€“ Nephew of John F. Kennedy and Founder and Chairman of Best Buddies International and Angela deFabrique â€“ Best Buddies Palm Beach Advisory Board Chairperson, Palm Beach Orthodontist and philanthropist were among the notable attendees.
