Cocktails in Paradise celebrated the History of the Jupiter Inlet 

West Palm Beach, FL | September 25, 2014   -   Cocktails in Paradise carried on its mission of celebrating Palm Beach County’s historic venues and shared legacy at the Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter on Tuesday, September 23rd from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Grouper owner and notable Jupiter native Jimmy Burg hosted the evening along with Jeremy Johnson of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, Jack Lighton of the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and Alyssa Freeman of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County. The beautiful sunset over the serene and historical Jupiter Inlet served as the evening’s backdrop and inspiration. Guests sipped drinks in the remodeled and expanded bar and ate “beach bites” from the newly added on-site kitchen.

In attendance were Historical Society Board Members and Young Friends Chairmen Scott Velozo and Kevin Clark; Young Friends Steering Committee members Adam and Dina Gillam, Melissa Schwartz, Melissa Sullivan, and Camille Murphy; and Dina Turner from the Society’s Official Magazine Sponsor Palm Beach Illustrated.  Others who came out to the waterfront were Jupiter resident and Historical Society Board member Tom Kirchhoff of Kirchhoff & Associates, Society Board member Penny Murphy of Pioneer Linens, and Noel DelValle of Treasure Coast Irrigation and Rood Landscaping.

The Young Friends of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County host this series in partnership with other history and civic organizations to illustrate the relationship between individuals and the organizations that preserve their legacy. Each event in the Cocktails in Paradise series features a notable event, monument or individual of significance in our County’s history. Proceeds from the series benefit Traveling Educational Trunks for Palm Beach County classrooms.

Each event is also co-hosted by at least one local partner historic/preservation or civic organization.
