Vintage Paris to Be Delivered by Amazing Gala Leadership
November 1st, 2013
Plans are well under way for the Foundation’s 2014 signature fundraiser. The destination and theme have been set, co-chairs and honorary chairs named. Décor concepts created and fabulous auction items and sponsorships are coming in for the “Under the Eiffel Tower; A Journey to 1920’s Paris” Gala.
The gala will be held Friday, January 17, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Golf Resort and will transport guests to the world’s metropolitan center for spectacular cultural and artistic glamour during the post-World War I era when peace fell softly on the ‘City of Lights’. A time when soulful jazz played through the evening streets and gas lit, romantic promenades were filled with people dancing, dining and indulging in the economic prosperity and social and artistic dynamism of the roaring 20’s. The VIP Patron Party, sponsored by The Private Client Reserve of U.S. Bank, will be on January 9 at 6:00 p.m. in the private home of Pella and Jack Fingersh.
There will be endless opportunities to bid on French-inspired luxurious silent and live auction lots while dining on the finest French cuisine. This soirée of vintage Paris will feature the Laine Cooke Jazz Quartet for dinner entertainment with live band dance music by PowerHouse.
This amazing event is being masterfully planned by dedicated volunteers Caryn Hacker-Buechel and Amanda Jaron who are serving as Co-Chairs and Jacques and Lysielle Cariot who are serving as Honorary Co-Chairs. With this dynamic team’s unwavering passion for mental health and our donors’ continued generous support, we are poised to exceed our fundraising goals so we can help more people at this time than in any other during our 45-year history and invest in new innovative programs.
Tickets are $500, $1,200 per VIP patron, and a variety of sponsorship opportunities are available. To learn more, call (239) 304-3505 or visit the gala website.
