On Saturday, Jan. 27, more than 200 friends and supporters of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County gathered at the Wellington Club at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center to enjoy an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a spectacular show jumping competition.

The evening benefited Legal Aid’s 30th anniversary Pro Bono Recognition Gala to be held Saturday, May 12 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

The presenting sponsor of this year’s equestrian event was GL Homes, which partners with Legal Aid on two of its programs serving disabled and homeless youth in the community. Hosts for the night were Sarah Alsofrom, Karen and Neil Anthony, Sherry and Jon Derrevere, Nathalie and Michael Drahos, Liz and Ron Herman, Nicole Hessen, Michelle and John McGovern, Cynthia and Michael Napoleone, Pamela and Michael Pike, Jennifer and Adam Rabin, Moria Rozenson and Al Malefatto, Sarah and Alan Shullman, and Janet and Steven Teebagy.

Guests donated more than 125 gifts, which will be auctioned at the May 12 event. Once again, Mark and Katherine Bellissimo of Wellington Equestrian Partners presented a $10,000 grant to the Legal Aid Society.
