HAVE A S.I.P. in West Palm Beach!
On August 31st the City of West Palm Beach celebrated the close of its always popular Summer in Paradise activities on the Waterfront with cheers from charity supporters who showed up to bid on the temporary art installation, Aesop’s Tables. The summer-long installation made its debut on June 1 and was sent off with much fanfare, as each table was auctioned off in support of a pre-assigned charity. In total, the City raised $11,550 for 25 local nonprofits, including Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Little Smiles and Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County, among others.
A direct tie to Mayor Jeri Muoio’s pledge declaring West Palm Beach as a City of Kindness, the storybook setting provided an opportunity for all to connect, explore local art, share their own stories and enjoy family-friendly activities on the West Palm Beach waterfront. Aesop’s Tables was presented by the City of West Palm Beach Art in Public Places
and celebrated the talents of 19 local artists. The tables featured depictions of “The Jay and the Peacock,” “Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Lion and the Mouse,” and more.
Additional benefitting nonprofits included: Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches, Inc., American Cancer Society-Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Autism Speaks, Children Seen and Heard, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Dress for Success Palm Beaches, Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, Habitat for Humanity, Legal Aid of Palm Beach County, Inc., Life’s Changes Palm Beach County, Inc., Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Nonprofits First, Pathfinders Scholarship Fund, Quantum House, Resource Depot, Seagull Services, Sister Cities of Delray Beach, Inc., Susan G Komen South Florida, The Arc of Palm Beach County, The Take Heed Theater Company, Inc., United Way of Palm Beach County and Urban Youth Impact.
