We had the most incredible time at this year’s 2013 Hope Bash and we were so honored to be this year’s exclusive jewelry sponsor. The event was a gorgeous evening supporting a fabulous cause. Over 600 supporters of Place of Hope gathered at PGA National Resort & Spa.
Executive Director Charles Bender credited the record-setting attendance to new co-chairs Nicole Henry and Elin Nordegren, who led the Hope Bash committee in creating a fresh, modern gala with creative touches, such as an electronic violin player. With the theme of “Jeans & Jewels: Palm Beach Nights,” the event also invited guests to be comfortable, yet elegant, during the evening.
“We were able to welcome well-known and established supporters to meet brand new supporters, who were learning about Place of Hope for the first time, thanks to our co-chairs doing a magnificent job,” Bender said. “The event was one of the most successful for Place of Hope, and it was all due to the amazing work of our Hope Bash committee.”
Exclusive jewelry sponsor Raymond Lee Jewelers donated 20 percent of the evening’s sales to Place of Hope. As a special nod to the “jewels” part of the theme, Raymond Lee Jewelers installed a full jewelry case in the reception area. During the silent auction, guests were able to try on and purchase sparkling jewelry.
The co-chairs looked stunning in some of our most fabulous pieces, and our team had a wonderful time showing off some more of our favorite jewels during the silent auction and showcase portion of the evening.
It was an unforgettable night, one that we feel honored to be a part of, and we look forward to supporting the continued amazing work of Place of Hope at their new Boca Raton campus, The Haven!
