Bonnie Lazar To Chair Everglades Gala

Bonnie Lazar will chair the 2014 River of Grass Gala, benefiting the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades. The foundation’s signature event will take place Dec. 6.

This year’s River of Grass Gala will be held aboard the Lady Windridge, a 167-foot yacht, which will embark at the City of West Palm Beach waterfront docks. The holiday-lights cruise includes dinner, entertainment, dancing, a live auction and valet parking. The honorary chairs for the event are Thais and Matt Piowtrowski and Bernadette and Bob Shalhoub.

The event supports the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem and its historic “River of Grass” through science-based education and outreach programs for all ages.

Lazar, a West Palm Beach resident, began her career as a Realtor in New York State and has been affiliated with the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches since 2001, first as a member and then rising through the leadership ranks to president. She currently serves as past president of the Regional Multiple Listing Service, vice president of the West Palm Beach Lions Club and serves on the board of directors for Executive Women of the Palm Beaches.
