Caroline Moran Among ‘Portrait Of A Woman’ Honorees

Caroline Moran of Wellington is among five women to be honored at the third annual “Portrait of a Woman” luncheon to be held at the West Palm Beach Marriott on Monday, March 3 at 11:30 a.m. to benefit the Quantum House.

Palm Beach philanthropist Irma Anapol has been named the Grand Matriarch of the luncheon. The other honorees are Rene Friedman, Marcie Gorman and Patricia Thomas.

Moran is a professional equestrian and has been an active Caridad Center board member for three years.

“It affects and helps the Palm Beach community as a whole, and the equestrian community in particular,” Moran said. “The grooms are the unsung heroes in our sport, and it is important to me that they have access to proper medical care.”

Moran also hosts a team at the Great Charity Challenge event in Wellington, as well as being a participant. The Moran Family Award for Excellence in the horse industry started in 2012, as her family’s way of thanking and encouraging equestrian supportive involvement.

“The goal of this annual charitable event is to raise much-needed funds for the Quantum House while honoring some incredible local ladies during Women’s History Month,” event co-chair Kim Champion explained.

Tickets to the event can be purchased by calling the Quantum House at (561) 494-0515 or at
