On Thursday, Sept. 9, Grandma’s Angels got together at Patti Hadden’s home to continue planning their sixth annual luncheon to benefit Grandma’s Place, which will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach.

Co-chairs Jodie Schmitz and Manda Galin welcomed the committee members in attendance: Kristi Bomar, Kelly Brenner, Ali Govier, Patti Hadden, Barbara Hollender, Kat Ogg, Dina Rubio and Lisa Shapiro. Committee members not in attendance included: Missy Agnello, Diane Berman, Susy Burrowes, Leslie Byck, Patty Cooke, Margaret Donnelley, Eleanor Jones, Cynthia Mascia, Anita Mitchell, Mary Lewis Moews, Adreana Moss, Joan O’Connell, Toni O’Brien, Amy Quattlebaum, Eve Sauer, Donna Scully, Valerie Seifert and George Swan Jr.

The luncheon starts at 11:30 a.m. with a wine reception and a fabulous silent auction. During lunch, there will be a small live auction by Neil Saffer, while local CBS 12 news anchor Liz Quirantes will again serve as the celebrity emcee. This event is in memory of Lou Ann Wilson-Swan, the founder and previous chair of the luncheon.

The proceeds benefit Grandma’s Place, which provides shelter and care to children who have suffered abuse or neglect and have been removed from their homes, and also provides respite care for children with disabilities.

Tickets are $200 per person or tables can be purchased for $1,800 each. To get an invitation, donate an auction item, purchase a ticket, place an ad in the event program or sponsor the event, call Roxanne Jacobs at (561) 376-0488, e-mail or visit
