Love of Literacy Luncheon: Kravis Center, West Palm Beach — March 12

Proceeds totaled nearly $200,000 from the 29th annual Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County fundraiser. The money will go toward child, adult and family literacy programs. Jean Kwok, a best-selling author who wrote ‘Searching for Sylvie Lee,’ was the headliner. ‘We could not have asked for a more inspiring speaker,’ said Kristin Calder, the nonprofit’s CEO. ‘Jean’s moving story of her personal journey from impoverished child of immigrants to best-selling author reminded us all that books and reading truly have the power to transform lives.’ ABOVE: (l-r) Committee members Dr. Regine Bataille, Seran Glanfield, Karen Rogers, Sabine Dantus, Bettina Young, Bernadette O’Grady, Kwok, Debra Ghostine, Stephanie Kahlert and Laura Silver.
