Make Plans to Spend an Evening in

October 2nd, 2011

The David Lawrence Foundation invites you to spend an evening in “Old Havana” at our signature fundraiser gala on Friday, January 20th at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort, Naples.

This annual destination driven event, named the 2011 Best Themed Event by Gulfshore Life Magazine, will transport guests to the Havana social clubs of the 1930s. This gala is pure vintage Cuba, reminiscent of the luxurious hacienda of a rich tobacco or sugar plantation owner. The evening will bring the colorful opulence of Old Havana to Naples represented by Cuban Colonial architecture, colorful buildings and lush courtyards.

The honorary co-chairs for “Old Havana” are Elizabeth and Stanley Star. They are joined by event committee chair Bev Cherry.

Dinner, dancing, live entertainment, and both live and silent auctions will all add to the excitement of this themed event. For those attending, “vintage Havana” attire is welcomed and encouraged. The ladies can come in summery cocktail dresses, while the gentlemen can don cool linen guayaberas, plantation or tropical print shirts with collars, and smart fedoras.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities and levels are currently available. Tickets to the event are $500 per person, $1,200 per VIP patron, $6,000 per host table of 10 and $10,000 per premier sponsor table of 10. For additional information or to reserve a ticket, contact the David Lawrence Foundation at 239-354-1416.
