YWCA Harmony House Gala


One may not think of Palm Beach experiencing a typical “winter,” but on December 7th the Breakers will be turned into a “Winter Wonderland” for the YWCA of Palm Beach County’s annual Mary Rubloff YWCA Harmony House Gala.

The event will include a cocktail reception, silent auction with many fabulous trips and other items, an elegant dinner in the Circle Room, seasonal entertainment and dancing.

Honorary Chairs are Teri Wolofsky and Larry Witte with Shawn Jan and Sharon Rinehimer as Co-Chairs. Corporate Sponsors are Addison Development – Karen and Dan Swanson and TD Wealth. Legacy Sponsor is Joyce McLendon.

Harmony House, a secure 72-bed shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence, provides immediate housing, food and clothing, counseling, education, support groups and case management for the residents.

Rinehimer remarked, “It is so gratifying to be involved with the Harmony House Gala. Domestic violence is such a critical problem, and the shelter provides emergency sanctuary for more than 550 women and children each year who were in imminent danger of loss of life or serious injury.”

Cost is $500. For information, please visit www.ywcapbc.org or call 561-640-0050.
