Community Coalition Fundraiser
The Community Coalition celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a fundraiser cocktail party and auction at Tom Quick’s house in Palm Beach to help the non-profit raise money for economic revitalization of areas, to help those who are disabled, homeless, and more. The non-profit’s founder Moira Forbes Mumma was joined by Co-Chairs including her brother Kip Forbes, Don Burns, Allison and Chip Brady, and Jane and Bob Souaid. Adding to the fun were Michele and Howard Kessler, Talbott Moxey, Muffy Miller, Judith Giuliani, Leta Austin Foster, Tim Johnson, and landscape designer Fernando Wong who helped raise over $30,000 for The Community Coalition. Corporate sponsors included Florida Dental Benefits, Inc. and Rosenberg Diamonds & Co. of Boca Raton. David and Jamie Rosenberg auctioned off a gorgeous 18k white gold and diamond necklace and matching pin whose proceeds were split between The Community Coalition and the Miami-based non-profit Gene Spotlight, which provides medical research grants to help find better treatment and cures for rare genetic disorders. Other auction items included wines from France and Italy, and a eight person stay at the stunning Forbes-owned Chateau de Balleroy in Normandy.
