It was an evening of altruism for almost 200 supporters who came to celebrate man’s best friend at American Humane’s fifth annual “Pups4Patriots” dinner dance at Club Colette in Palm Beach.
To date, the program has delivered nearly 270 service dogs to U.S. military veterans — at no cost to them — to help with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries. The affair raised enough money to pair six more dogs with service men and women.
“There is no pill or therapy session that can put a smile on a vet’s face like a wagging tail,” American Humane CEO and President Robin Ganzert said. “We want every veteran to know that they do not need to face this battle alone.”

Cocktails in Paradise
The recent Cocktails in Paradise event — the second of three in the Historical Society of Palm Beach County’s series — sold out once again, this time at La Coquille Club in Manalapan.
The Magnificent Morgans, an exhibit created for the event, showed images taken by the father-and-son photography duo of Bert and Richard Morgan. For more than half of the 20th century, their images preserved the lifestyles of the rich and famous and the area’s culture.
Attendees also were treated to a presentation tracing the path of commercial air travel and proof that the first international trips were piloted in Palm Beach County prior to the August 1919 flight from London that is publicized as the earliest.

Rhinestone Cowboy Ball
The George Snow Scholarship Fund had its 29th annual Rhinestone Cowboy Ball, with more than 300 guests who enjoyed dinner, live music, an open bar, casino games and wrestling with a mechanical alligator.
The event set a fundraising record, $150,000 and counting. Proceeds support efforts to provide scholarships to students in need.
“We really can’t thank our sponsors enough,” CEO Tim Snow said. “Their commitment to the George Snow Scholarship Fund and our events has changed the lives of hundreds of deserving students.”
