Benefitting The Haiti Empowerment Mission and St. Jude’s Medical Research Hospital, the invitation-only 2012 Paradise Grand Casino will bring together five hundred of New York and Palm Beach’s “young, philanthropic trendsetters,” according to the press release. The two charities are both important causes supported by The Paradise Fund’s own Children’s Relief Fund.
Marking the fourth event for The Paradise Fund this year alone, the fifth annual Paradise Grand Casino will include fundraising, gambling, music by Manhattan-based, award-winning singer Doug Acosta and his swing orchestra, signature cocktails from New York’s speak-easy Death & Co’s curated bar and sample bites from Buccan’s James Beard nominated chef, Clay Conley.
Founded by young, ambitious individuals who were looking to empower their generation with tools to make a difference in children’s lives around the world, the Paradise Fund’s other events this year included the Paradise Fund’s Miami launch in May, the Paradise Fund’s New York launch in October and a Los Angeles launch planned for later this year. Focusing on educating the public about “ongoing political, environmental, health, educational and social complications plaguing children throughout the world”, the Paradise Fund began launching satellite groups in Los Angeles, Miami and New York in 2012.
The Paradise Grand Casino will take place on November 23 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Flagler Museum (1 Whitehall Way, Palm Beach, FL).
