Grandma’s Angels Luncheon Will Ring In Holiday Season

Jodie Schmitz and Sunny Hawkins

On Tuesday, Nov. 28, Grandma’s Place will hold its eighth annual Grandma’s Angels Holiday Luncheon at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach.

The Royal Palm Beach-based nonprofit is thrilled to announce Jodie Schmitz and Sunny Hawkins as co-chairs of this event. Committee members include Jane Bruno, Susy Burrowes, Amy Considine, Margaret Donnelley, Manda Galin, Helena Guest, Patti Hadden, Barbara Hollender, Eleanor Jones, May Liguori, Mary Lewis Moews, Toni O’Brien, Joan O’Connell, Dina Rubio, Lisa Shapiro, Marcie Singer, Jamie Taylor and Monique VandeKamp.

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 while local CBS12 News anchor Liz Quirantes once again serves as the celebrity emcee.

The proceeds benefit Grandma’s Place, which provides shelter and loving care to children who have suffered abuse or neglect and have been removed from their homes, and also provides respite care for young children with disabilities while offering support to their parents/caregivers to maximize each child’s safety and success.

Tickets are $200 per person or tables at $2,000 each. To receive an invitation, donate an auction item, purchase a ticket or sponsor the event, call Roxanne Jacobs at (561) 376-0488, e-mail or visit
