One of Bob Weisman’s last acts as Palm Beach County Administrator will help the area’s least fortunate. On Friday, Oct. 2, the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County will be the beneficiary of a retirement party in recognition of Weisman’s service.
“As a public servant, Mr. Weisman has been dedicated to helping others, so it’s fitting that his farewell bash will benefit housing programs for those who are experiencing homelessness,” Homeless Coalition Executive Director Marilyn Munoz said.
Weisman retired on Aug. 31 as county administrator after 23 years of service. “I will not stop caring about the people of Palm Beach County just because I am no longer in office,” Weisman said. “This event will raise money to get people who are homeless into housing. That is something I will always care about. I can’t think of a better community cause.”
On Oct. 2 Weisman and other community friends will hold #FlashbackFriday, a sendoff sock hop at the Cars of Dreams Museum in North Palm Beach. Owners John and Jeanette Staluppi have donated the venue. Cars of Dreams is a virtual time capsule of 1950s and 1960s Americana.
Cars of Dreams is only open for special events, so this is a great way for guests to tour the venue while helping the homeless. For $125, guests will enjoy dinner, drinks and music while touring the classic car collection.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Homeless Coalition’s Creating Housing Opportunities Program.
