Best Buddies Debuted Palm Beach Chapter With Anthony K. ShriverThursday, February 21, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Singer Island, Palm Beach

As one of the nation’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 organization’s programs.

Sponsored by Palm Beach Illustrated and themed around “All you need is love,” the evening included a silent auction featuring a special art piece from Julian Lennon’s new “Alone” collection titled, “Midnight Smoke.”

Anthony K. Shriver – Nephew of John F. Kennedy and Founder and Chairman of Best Buddies International and Angela deFabrique – Best Buddies Palm Beach Advisory Board Chairperson, Palm Beach Orthodontist and philanthropist were among the notable attendees.
