On Saturday, April 24th, the Henry Flagler Museum was transformed into one of the most desired dining destinations Palm Beach has seen in a long time. The Young Friends of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League — a newly formed committee of Palm Beach’s next generation of animal advocates — gathered together for their second annual “Party Animal” dinner to support the work of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Presenting sponsors were James Berwind & Kevin Clark. Others included Bessemer Trust and Farley Rentschler.
The event’s co-chairs were Stacey Leuliette and Molly & Nick Mele. Committee members included Bettina Anderson, Farley Rentchler, Benton Bohannon, Joy & Damien Barr, Katie & Bill Benjamin, Turner & CJ Benoit, Georgina Bloomberg, Sally Bossert, Amy & Ryan Bridger, Margit & Blair Brandt, Cy Ryan & Lulu Carter, Christina Cernik, Kate & Nathan Coe, Kayla Collins, Sarah Cooke, Nick Rojo & Sarah Davis, Stephanie & William Eady, Nikki & Joe Floyd, Lilly & Sean Ferreira, Franny & John Criddle, Rick Frisbie, Graham & Brent Gallagher, Meredith & Clay Gregory, Amber & Ricky Grow, Maggi Haigh, Colin Hickey, Lauren Lahatte, Ivey & Bobby Leidy, Amanda Beckwith & Adam Lipson, Whitney McGurk, Kristina & Brad McPherson, Brittany Mundarain, Max Newland Carling & Tom Pinckney, Kelly & Gary Pohrer, Cameron & Jeff Preston, Cassie & Joe Sheerer, Lauriston & Rich Segerson, Allison Skipper, Krystian von Speidel, Chelsea & Robert Surtees, Matt Swift, Casey Taylor, Kristin & Diego Urrutia, Serena Woodward, and Lauren Wynns.
Continuing their “Party Animal” theme, the evening was creative and whimsical. Libations, music and delicious food was served as guests’ spirit animals took flight to support their furry friends in need. Dancing was, however, suspended due to Covid restrictions and the number of attendees was limited as well, but it was wonderful to see everyone coming together again for a cause they love.
By bringing together young professionals, all with a shared interest in animal welfare and adoption, the Young Friends of Peggy Adams encourages life-long participation with the shelter.
