Bettina Anderson’s Favorite Things

Bettina Anderson Photo Credit Nathan CoeAltruism is one virtue Bettina Anderson has in spades. Daughter of Inger and the late Harry Loy Anderson Jr., one of Palm Beach’s most philanthropic couples, her passion for helping the less fortunate was fostered from an early age.

In 2005, she and her brothers, Kent and Loy, cofounded The Paradise Fund, a nonprofit that collaborates with leading charities to provide education, health, and relief initiatives locally and abroad. Last month, she co-chaired the Canvas Art Charities 2016 Art Gala, an event that raised funds for visual arts initiatives in the community.

In her spare time, the West Palm Beach resident enjoys flying, spear fishing, and spending time with her two nephews, Hampton and Mason.
