Palm Beach County Leadership Luau Rocks the Singer Island Hilton


On August 22, 2009, the Leadership Palm Beach County members gathered at the Singer Island Hilton to celebrate at their annual party. The casual beach-themed soiree featured appetizers, buffet style dinner, an amazing Key Lime pie, dancing and entertainment by The Shakers and tropical fun by the ocean.

Although there were a few introductions, this event was all schmooze, booze, dinner and dancing — all fun — no speeches and it was definitely not business as usual for the civic-minded group. No ties, no ball gowns, but lots of working the dance floor.

According to their web site, “Leadership Palm Beach County, Inc. is an educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to foster awareness of community issues and promote efficient communication and cooperative relationships between existing and emerging community leaders. Through the Adult Leadership Program, the organization is devoted to preparing an active network of informed, concerned community trustees to help shape the future of Palm Beach County.”
