The best parties are always for a good cause. The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show took some time away from highlighting the world’s best artists and toasted the great work done every year by the American Red Cross. Held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on February 13th, The American Red Cross and its local Board of Directors welcomed Benefactors of the 58thInternational Red Cross Ball to a special Heroes Reception and cocktail party. The massive 5,500 strong guest list included the likes of Earle Mack, Kathy & Rick Hilton, Judith Guiliani, Henry Buhl, Andrea Stark, Carolyn Englefield, Bettina Bennett, Cheri Kaufman, Steven Stolman, Pamela O’Connor and Jean Shafiroff. During the haute festivities, Palm Beach Show Group CEO Scott Diament revealed the 2015 Designer showcase and presented the Red Cross with a check for $10,000 to support their selfless humanitarian efforts in Florida and across the country.

“The American Red Cross is honored to be this year’s Charity Partner for The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show and appreciative of the Palm Beach Show Group’s commitment to help us fulfill our humanitarian mission in the Palm Beach community and wherever we are needed,” said Amy Mauser, Chief Development Officer for the South Florida Region.

This year’s Designer Showcase, curated by Campion Platt, featured work by a number of word-renowned designers including, Suzanne Kasler, Gil Walsh, Lars Bolander, Jenny Garrigues, and Bill and Phyllis Taylor. The showcase also featured Platt’s own Christian Grey inspired room setting, as well as treasures and one of a kind pieces curated from 180 international exhibitors.
