Circle of Hope Gala raises $140,000 for Women’s Circle
Boynton Beach, FL -- Nearly 130 guests celebrated the 13th Annual Circle of Hope Gala at Westchester Country Club on March 30. Co-chaired by Mrs. Helen Babione and Mrs. Karyn Turk, Mrs. Florida 2016, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with silent auction, followed by an elegant dinner, music and a program. Highlights included a guest appearance by the world-renown French-American artist DUAIV, who created a unique painting during dinner. Bidding for the painting was fierce in the live auction led by Neil Saffer of Saffer and Company. In total, the Gala raised more than $140,000 for Women’s Circle of Boynton Beach, and their job-improvement, citizenship and life-skills programs for underserved women.
Former Boynton Beach mayor Hon. Jerry Taylor and Mrs. Taylor served as honorary chairs for the Gala, and retired TV anchor and Women’s Circle Board member Jim Sackett returned as Master of Ceremonies. The invocation was delivered by Rev. Woodrow Hay, also a member of Women’s Circle board. Generous sponsors include Mr. and Mrs. C. Morgan Jackson, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Greenberg, Mrs. Phyllis Spinner Kramer, Mrs. Joan Hurley, Mr. & Mrs. Arthur Poisson, US Trust / Bank of America Private Wealth Management, St. Patrick Catholic Church, Mrs. Frances Haley and Babione-Kraeer Funeral Home. Music was provided by Mickey Valentine.
Circle of Hope committee members include Jo-Ann Dilorenzo, Sherry Zekowski, Shelley Eichner, Amy Robbins, Marge Blanz, Trisha Saffer, Jane Adams, Val Coz, Rosemarie Brady, Nelly Mejia, and Ideli Price.
