Celebrate 60 Years of the Palm Beach Lifestyle at the Ultimate Palm Beach Party, Lilly Pulitzer’s Iconic Beach Bash Palm Beach

Over 700 philanthropic influencers will raise funds to benefit Palm Beach’s sea turtle and ocean conservation hub: The Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center

Our iconic Lilly Pulitzer once said, “If you don’t have any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”  Beach Bash Palm Beach, now in its 13th year, is Lilly Pulitzer’s largest annual charity event.  Saving sea turtles never looked so good!

This year’s theme, For the Love of Palm Beach will celebrate 60 years of Lilly Pulitzer and will salute the new Lilly Pulitzer store on Palm Beach’s iconic Worth Avenue.  Lilly Leas Ferreira is Chairing the event for 2018.  Ferreira is Lilly Pulitzer’s granddaughter, and she has curated a powerful new host committee tasked with exceeding the event’s philanthropic goals.

“Beach Bash has always been a great event, but this year, we have a new level of community support and excitement surrounding the Bash,” said Ferreira. “The committee is going above and beyond, and we can’t wait to celebrate For the Love of Palm Beach in support of Loggerhead Marinelife Center.”

On Saturday, Dec. 29, from 8 p.m. to midnight, over 700 guests will spend the evening at the beautiful private Beach Club on Palm Beach for one of the most anticipated celebrations of the social season.
