Ambassador Nancy Brinker, 23rd United States Ambassador to Hungary, former Chief of Protocol of the United States and founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, was the speaker at a luncheon, sponsored by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, on January 5, in Lake Worth. Brinker is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Promise Me – How a Sister’s Love Launched the Global Movement to End Breast Cancer. Currently, she is serving as the World Health Organization’s Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control. In addition, in 2009 she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama. Ambassador Brinker discussed her extensive collection of Hungarian Art that spans 100 years from just before the Austro-Hungarian Empire to the present. This collection has been on display at several museums around the United States and it one of the largest outside of Hungary. Sponsored by the JP Morgan Chase Foundation and the Boynton Beach Flower Market, the luncheon was held at the Cultural Council’s office at 601 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth. Peg Greenspan, a member of the Boca Museum board of directors and a good friend of Nancy Brinker, interviewed her that day. For the rest of the photos, see Carol Porter’s photo gallery.
