Mary Rubloff YWCA Harmony House Celebrates 20 Years

The “20th Anniversary Soirée” will take place Thursday, Dec. 12 at the Breakers Palm Beach, celebrating the 20th year of the Mary Rubloff YWCA Harmony House, the larger of two state-certified domestic violence centers located in Palm Beach County.

Since the opening of the center in 1993, more than 10,000 women and children have been provided safety and security, as well as assistance with a variety of needs at the undisclosed location.

Founding Benefactor Mary Rubloff Schott and Capital Campaign Chairwoman Anita Dubnoff had the vision of providing a secure and supportive environment for single women and women with children who were being battered in their home.

The black-tie-optional event will include a reception and dinner in the Circle Ballroom with music, entertainment and a live auction.

Grand honorary chairwoman for the evening is Felicia Taylor, daughter of the late Mary Rubloff Schott. Jacki Ojakian will chair the event. Serving as honorary chairwomen for this special occasion are former chairwomen of the traditional annual Harmony House luncheon: Catherine Adler, Gale Brophy, Frances Fisher, Florence Free, Susan Keenan, Sonja Stevens, Karen Swanson and Teri Wolofsky.

Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach is the event’s corporate sponsor. Grand benefactors are Lewis Schott and PNC Wealth Management. Circle of Friends include Mary Ann and Stephen Ehrlich, Frances and Jeffrey Fisher, Judy and Jim Harpel, Joyce McLendon, Jacki Ojakian, Karen and Dan Swanson, Laura and Fred Tanne, Teri Wolofsky and Larry Witte.
