Black and White Masquerade Gala to Benefit Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach


Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County is planning its 2nd Annual “Black & White Masquerade” Gala which will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 6:30pm to 11:00pm. The gala will be held at the Marriott Hotel Boca Town Center and Doctor’s Choice Pharmacy is once again a major sponsor. All proceeds will benefit the mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. Honorary Chairperson, Ethel Isaacs Williams, the External Affairs Regional Manager for Florida Power & Light Company, will be overseeing an exquisite evening which includes a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner, dancing and a tribute to two honorees for their outstanding dedication and commitment to the mission of building affordable homes and improving neighborhoods. Honorees are Lynn University and Eric Lebersfeld from Capitol Lighting. Lynn University has continually provided outstanding support through hundreds of hours contributed by various student groups over the years. Capitol Lighting has been a vital supporter by sponsoring numerous fundraising activities and donating so many beautiful items to ReStores. For over twenty years, Habitat has been providing homeownership opportunities for hardworking and deserving families in the cities of Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Boca Raton. Additionally, the organization works to build community pride by assisting individuals whose homes are in need of painting, landscaping and repairs. The neighborhood revitalization efforts have grown substantially over the past several years as the economy has adversely affected so many individuals. “Our gala was a great event last year and was very successful in contributing to our fundraising efforts. We know it will be more successful this year and invite local businesses to support our programs through gala sponsorships, in-kind donations and program display advertising”, said Mike Campbell, Executive Director. Sponsorship opportunities include a $50,000 Title Sponsor (SOLD), $25,000 Presenting Sponsor (Two Available), $15,000 Supporting Sponsor, $7,500 Premier Sponsor, $5,000 Royal Sponsor, and $2,500 Grand Sponsor.
