FOREVERGLADES PALM BEACH BENEFIT with a special performance by Jon Bon Jovi & Friends
February 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$1,250
The Everglades Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 working to protect and restore America’s Everglades through science, education and advocacy, today announced that Jon Bon Jovi & Friends will be headlining its annual “ForEverglades” Palm Beach Benefit on February 16, 2019 at The Breakers Palm Beach Resort. Tickets to the event, which sells out each year, start at $1,250. For more information or to purchase tickets, please contact Katie Lesser or Debbie Fife at Everglades@eventassociatesinc.com or 212.245.6570.
Guests will have the opportunity to support a meaningful cause, while enjoying a special live performance by the American rock legend. The event brings together environmental activists, business leaders and philanthropists from Palm Beach and across the country to support America’s Everglades. Past attendees include Jack Nicklaus, Ken Langone, Kelly Slater and Michael Keaton, to name a few. Last year’s headliner was singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, who is also a long-time board member of The Everglades Foundation.
All proceeds raised at the Benefit will go to The Everglades Foundation, leading the efforts to restore and protect the greater Everglades ecosystem. The Everglades is the largest subtropical wilderness reserve in North America and is the fresh water supply to nearly eight million Floridians, as well as home to more than 70 threatened or endangered species. Nearly 100 years of diking, damming and development has reduced the Everglades to nearly a third of its original size, and contributed to the current widespread toxic algae blooms that have resulted in two states of emergencies since 2016.
