Cocktails in Paradise celebrated the History of Palm Beach

Palm Beach, FL | June 25, 2014 - Cocktails in Paradise carried on its mission celebrating Palm Beach County History on June 24, at Café Boulud nestled inside of the Brazilian Court in Palm Beach. The historic 1926 Hotel served as the evening’s backdrop and inspiration. Over one hundred guests were in attendance sipping a signature gin cocktail while viewing iconic photographs of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach from the Society’s archive.

Historical Society Board Members and Young Friends Chairmen Scott Velozo and Kevin Clark; along with the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Society of the Four Arts were there to meet and greet, accompanied by Young Friends Steering Committee member Melissa Schwartz and Allison Reckson from the Society’s Official Magazine Sponsor Palm Beach Illustrated. Others who came out for some summer fun were local Architect Tom Kirchhoff and his daughter Nicole Kirchoff, Historical Society of Palm Beach County Board Chairmen Grier Pressly with his wife Kristy, Palm Beach Chamber’s Laurel Baker, and Palm Beach Civic Association Vice President of Marketing and Membership, Susan Keenan.

The Young Friends of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County host this series in an effort to partner with other history and civic organizations in hopes to illustrate the relationship between individuals and the historic 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 history. Proceeds from the series benefit Traveling Educational Trunks for classrooms.

The next Cocktails in Paradise event will be held in September 2014. More information, along with sponsorship opportunities, is available by contacting Jillian Markwith at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County 561-832-4164, 103 |
