A vibrant journey of imagination awaited a sold-out crowd of 350 guests at the 2013 JFS Annual Gala and Auction in December. The event was held at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton on a purple carpet – only to find it was the train of an elegant gown worn by a lady high atop stilts. Guests witnessed a living tree walking on stilts through the cocktail area, a silent auction decorated by a woman tumbling inside a hoop, and wait staff in hot pink wigs or purple bowties. The fundraiser raised $500,000 for food, financial assistance, senior services and mental health care for families and individuals throughout South Palm Beach County.
