Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults (RCCA)
31st Annual Soirée
Over one hundred donors and supporters of Palm Beach’s Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults celebrated its 31 st AnnualSoirée on December 3 rd at Club Colette. The exquisite evening began with a cocktail hour during which guests were welcomed by Chairwoman Heather T. Henry and Co-chairmen Soraya and Peter Geisler. The beautiful décor by Everett Simon included sparkling gold textured tablecloths with tall centerpieces of dramatic long-stemmed white tulips with small vases of tulips surrounding the bases.
“For 31 years, the Soirée has been successful at gathering friends together to support the wonderful work of the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults. It is an elegant evening at Club Colette with great food and wine, beautiful music, plus you get to go home early!” Henry said. Attendees enjoyed a delicious meal that included a Roasted Pear Salad, Steak Diane with Potatoes Au Gratin and Baked Alaska. The guests were entertained with live music by Bob Merrill & His Society Swing Band. Each guest received a custom RCCA-labelled bottle of Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay.
