Adopt-A-Family’s 35th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration
December 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$350.00
Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches will once again host a time-honored, holiday island tradition at the beautiful Sailfish Club in Palm Beach on Tuesday, December 3. Event chairs Brenda McGarrity and Jen Dudnyk are finalizing plans to welcome guests to Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches’ Tree Lighting Ceremony, an evening that will feature the lighting of the organization’s beautiful Angel Tree.
Starting with a cocktail reception, the annual festivities will include live entertainment and a silent auction stocked with the exquisite live orchids, one-of-a-kind holiday decorating items, and other coveted treasures that guests excitedly anticipate all year. A gourmet holiday dinner and rousing live auction follow, all building up to the evening’s highlight moment, when Adopt-A-Family’s Angel Tree is illuminated to honor the donors and partners whose generosity has assisted thousands of homeless families and others in crisis to attain self-sufficiency and stability.
In the last year, Adopt-A-Family helped more than 2,771 families, either directly ending or preventing episodes of homelessness for 612 Palm Beach County families. In 2018, the organization broke ground for a new housing project in Lake Worth, and its Project Grow afterschool program had a 98 percent success rate of students promoted to the next grade level – far exceeding local and national averages. Adopt-A-Family also achieved its 12th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a national distinction less than one percent of nonprofits rate.
Adopt-A-Family’s 35th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Sailfish Club located at 1338 N Lake Way in Palm Beach. Tickets are $350 per person. For more information, please contact Layren Calvo at LCalvo@aafpbc.org; 561-253-1361, ext. 1120.
