Renee D. Plevy and Bobbi Shorr, the chairwoman and co-chair of the upcoming Portrait of a Woman Spring Luncheon, today announced that the Wellington Public Library will be displaying seven oil portraits and three photos/giclees of local community leaders honored at last year’s event.
Among the distinguished Portrait of a Woman honorees in 2012 were Grand Matriarch Countess de Hoernle, Matriarchs Helen Babione and Susy Minkoff, Grand Honoree Dorothy Sullivan and Honorees Sherry Frankel, Bobbi Horwich, Jacqueline Keeley, Lynda Levitsky and Dr. Maria M. Vallejo.
A public reception honoring The Quantum House’s Portrait of a Woman Legacy Portrait Exhibit will be held at the Wellington Library on Friday, March 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. The library is located at 1951 Royal Fern Drive in Wellington.
Marc & Melissa Ganzi are hosting the reception, along with Ms. Plevy, the artist who paints each portrait. A female dynamo in the male-dominated world of international polo, Ms. Ganzi is one of the women being honored at the second annual Portrait of a Woman Spring Luncheon, along with Matriarch Sydelle Meyer, the well known cultural philanthropist, and Honorees Rosemary Krieger, a Boca-based community leader, and Ruth Young, Director of Sales & Marketing at The Colony Hotel, Palm Beach.
“The goal of this annual charitable event is to raise much needed funds for Quantum House while honoring some incredible local ladies during Women’s History Month,” says Ms. Plevy.
“This event is our way of saluting special women from throughout Palm Beach County for their major long-term contributions to our overall community, as well as to individuals, businesses, civic organizations and charities,” adds Ms. Shorr.
Portrait of a Woman recognizes its annual Honorees and Matriarchs in a unique and personal way, through original oil portraits that will be displayed at leading venues throughout Palm Beach County.
The upcoming Portrait of a Woman Spring Luncheon will be held in Palm Beach on Thursday, March 21, at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are only $135, and can be purchased online at www.quantumhouse.org.
