A Gift of Love...A Gift of Hope Luncheon


The ladies of the Palm Beach Auxiliary came ready to shop, lunch and play for a great cause at the sold-out A Gift of Love…A Gift of Hope luncheon and card party at the Polo Club of Boca Raton Monday, February 11, 2019. Led by philanthropists and Chairwomen Renee Aronin, Natalie Olstein and Gloria Katz – all whom have had a loved one personally affected by type 1 diabetes – the luncheon passed more than $1-million raised to date for the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI)’s work to cure the disease.

After attendees browsed and purchased some of the latest fashions from several local boutique vendors, the chairwomen kicked off the program by thanking guests for their tremendous support over the years. They then welcomed to the stage Andria Holtz, a member of the DRIF Board of Directors and longtime supporter, who shared her personal story and thanked attendees for their ongoing support.

After Andria’s heartwarming and hopeful personal account, more than 55 raffle winners were called and received great prizes, ranging from gift certificates to paintings and more. All items were generously donated by vendors, sponsors and supporters.

The ladies then socialized over coffee, a dessert buffet and various card and table games including Scrabble, Canasta, and Mah Jong.
