December, 2015 – MacKenzie-Childs Shop to Support Grandma’s Place


MacKenzie-Childs Shop to Support Grandma’s Place


On November 6th, an absolutely beautiful evening on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, more than 125 guests attended the MacKenzie-Childs Shop to Support the Cause from 6 to 8 pm.  Guests enjoyed an evening of fun festivities, which included free flowing wine, fabulous hors d’oeuvres, great conversation, and relaxing and revitalizing mini spa treatments from Eau Spa.  Denise Janis, of Coral Springs, was the lucky winner of the raffle basket, valued at $575, which included a couples’ massage at Eau Spa, a large bottle of Perfect Vodka, a Courtly Check bottler opener from MacKenzie-Childs, and a Martini shaker, glasses & stirrer.  An added bonus was that 10% of the evening’s proceeds benefited Grandma’s Place, an emergency shelter for 16 children – from birth to the age of 12 – who have been removed from their homes by the Department of Children & Families due to abuse or neglect.  In fact, Grandma’s Place is the ONLY emergency shelter for children from birth to 12 years old in Palm Beach County!

This event was held as a kick-off to Grandma’s Place Inaugural Luncheon, which will be held on December 8th at The Beach Club in Palm Beach. It will start at 11:30 am with a wine reception, informal modeling by Salon Margrit, and a tasting booth by Perfect Vodka.  Lunch will be served at 12:30 and include a live auction by Neil Saffer of Saffer & Company Benefits Auctions with Liz Quirantes, Channel 12 News Anchor, serving as the celebrity emcee.

Some guests in attendance were Luncheon Chair, Lou Ann Wilson Swan, and Committee Members: Sue Ellen Clarfeld, Cibi Hoffman, Dina Rubio, and George Swan, Jr.
