CULTURE & COCKTAILS At The Colony Concludes Season with Cultural Entrepreneur Milton Maltz
Concludes 2013-2014 Season With Conversation
With Cultural Entrepreneur Milton Maltz
(Palm Beach, FL – April 10, 2014) The popular series CULTURE & COCKTAILS, hosted by the Cultural Council ofPalm Beach County, recently attracted neatly 100 supporters to The Colony Hotel, Palm Beach for the final "Conversation"
The topic was CULTURAL ENTREPRENEUR, a conversation with Milton Maltz, the founder of Malrite Communications Group, which operated radio and TV stations from New York to California.
A major backer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Cleveland, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Mr. Maltz was interviewed by Beth Neuhoff, President and CEO of Neuhoff Communications, a broadcast company serving small and mid-size communities.
The two friends, both experienced radio veterans, delighted the crowd with inside stories about his stellar career, from his experience as a child actor on radio to how being fired by an anti-Semitic broadcasting company in Chicago inspired both his drive for business success and social justice. He discussed how it was his wife’s savings as a school teacher that funded his first radio station purchase, that one of his on-air “finds” was shock jock Don Imus, and he reiterated his longtime support for numerous cultural organizations.
The 2013-2014 season of CULTURE & COCKTAILS was generously sponsored by The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation; The Roe Green Foundation, Roe Green, Founder; The Palm Beach Post and The Palm Beach Daily News, and PR-BS, a Boca-based public relations firm.
The 10th annual season of CULTURE & COCKTAILS will be announced soon.
