Nearly 200 supporters and friends of Grandma’s Place gathered at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach for the 5th Annual “Grandma’s Angels” Holiday Luncheon. Guests enjoyed a wine and champagne reception as they were able to bid on more than 200 silent auction items.
Channel 12 News Anchor Liz Quirantes served as celebrity emcee and welcomed guests as they dined on filet mignon. Michele Poole talked passionately about Grandma’s Place before the fun really began with a live auction by Neil Saffer and his wife Trish from Saffer & Company.
The luncheon was chaired by Manda Galin and Dina Rubio. Herme de Wyman Miro served as International Honorary Chair and Elayne Flamm served as Honorary Chair.
Proceeds from the luncheon support Grandmas Place, an emergency foster shelter for children from birth to the age of 12 who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Grandmas Place also provides family support services to parents and caregivers of children with special needs, including mentoring, training and respite care.
