The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual fundraiser Arthur’s Jam was a huge success in raising funds for medical research in the quest to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
More than 200 guests arrived by land and sea at the Lake Pavilion on the waterfront for this fun-filled evening and helped to raise more than $70,000.
Guests were greeted with hand-passed cocktails and open bars while they were entertained with music by the Feeder Band. They enjoyed a 10-course dinner by the bite provided by C’est Si Bon. They happily bid away on the many exclusive auction items. Photos of this event and supporting events were taken and graciously donated by Davidoff Studios. After a brief program and the presentation of the Jam for Life award to Timothy Schwab, guests were treated with bags of candy from the candy bar provided by Extraordinary Sweets.
Sponsors for the event included Schutz and White Family Law, the Weiss family, the Frank J. Lewis Foundation, Christian Angle Real Estate, Laurie and Jon Rapaport, Sadell United Bank, Abigail and Hampton Beebe, Akerman Senterfit, Angelo and Banta P.A., Aptalis Pharma, Florida Power and Light, Northwest Mutual–the McKernan Financial Group, PNC Bank, Rivard Insurance, Shari and Britton Core, St. Mary’s Medical Center and the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital, Tobin and Reyes P.A., and Moore, Ellrich and Neal P.A.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States.
The Palm Beach chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is located at 700 S. Dixie Highway, Suite 100, in downtown West Palm Beach.
