Boys & Girls Club Wellington Dinner Dance Gala Set For Jan. 9

The Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club will host its 27th annual Wellington Dinner Dance, on Friday, Jan. 9 at the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club from 7 to 11 p.m.

This year’s dance will transport attendees back in time to a 1950s inspired haven rivaling any country club setting in both atmosphere and capacity as club supporters gather to “Shake, Rattle and Roll.”

For more than 27 years, the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club in Wellington has given the children of the community a place to go to be nurtured and loved through the support of friends in the community. The dinner dance offers supporters and philanthropists of the Wellington area a fun evening of cocktails, silent and live auctions, dinner and dancing.

The Wellington gala is the club’s largest fundraising event and has been instrumental in the club’s expansion plans over the past several years. In April 2013, the club opened the doors to a new $3.6 million, state-of-the-art facility that has transformed the Boys & Girls Club presence in the community. This year, Georgina Bloomberg, Dr. Dana Desser and Carol Sollak will serve as co-chairs for the dance.

Joining the co-chairs are committee members Todd Barron, Maria Becker, Amy Carr, Jeanie Dello Joio, Ngaere Durling, Bedonna Fisher, Jessica Guilbert, Heidi Harland, Ron Herman, Jen Holmes, Reed Kellner, Julie Khanna, Julie Kime, Julie Larson-Menitoff, Kimberly Leland, Rachelle List, Darren Marotta, Michael Martin, Aaron Menitoff, Joni Moncelli, Eduardo Pantoja, Andrea Plevin, Maggi Rosenburg, Ellen Sanita, Ali Solimine and Becky Wisnicki.

This year’s sponsors include Georgina Bloomberg, the Center for Bone & Joint Surgery of the Palm Beaches, Comprehensive Pain Care of South Florida, Palms Wellington Surgical, Engel & Volkers, the International Polo Club Palm Beach, Palms West Hospital, Palms West Medical Staff, Julie and John Kime, Select Hospital, Carol Sollak, Amy Carr, UBS Financial Services, Allstate Erica Clark and Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith.
