Fifth Annual Paradise Fund Grand Casino

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Palm Beach, FL – November 23, 2012 – The Paradise Fund kicked off the 2012/2013 Palm Beach social season with the fifth annual Paradise Grand Casino, which took place on Friday, November 23rd at the Historic Flagler Museum in Palm Beach. Five hundred of New York and Palm Beach’s young, philanthropic trendsetters gathered at this invitation-only event sponsored by Lamborghini and Sabadell Bank & Trust Palm Beach.

Guests sampled delectable bites from Buccan’s James Beard nominated chef, Clay Conley, and sipped signature cocktails from famed New York speak-easy, Death & Co’s, curated bar. Palm Beach and New York movers and shakers gambled the night away, mingled and danced to the sounds of Manhattan-based, award-winning crooner Doug Acosta and his swing orchestra.

Proceeds raised at the 2012 Paradise Grand Casino will directly benefit The Haiti Empowerment Mission and St. Jude’s Medical Research Hospital; two very important children’s charities supported by The Paradise Fund’s own Children’s Relief Fund. The Fifth Annual Paradise Grand Casino marked the fourth event for The Paradise Fund this year, others include The Paradise Fund Miami launch in May 2012, TPF’s New York launch in October 2012 and a fourth launch planned in Los Angeles later this year. The Paradise Fund recently sponsored 48 Haitian students for the 2012-2013 School Year for Haiti Empowerment Mission, founded by Michael Capponi.

The Paradise Fund Miami Launch

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Miami Beach, FL – May 11, 2012 – More than 300 of Miami’s philanthropic trendsetters celebrated the launch of The Paradise Fund’s newest branch, The Paradise Fund: Miami, at the Shelborne South Beach hotel on Friday, May 11, 2012. Due to the overwhelming response for admission to this event, Menin Hotels re-decorated Vesper American Brasserie to accommodate the guests, who sampled creative new cocktails from Atlantico Rum, such as the Atlantico Cane Harvest and light-bites from the Vesper American Brasserie’s new summer menu. DJ Clarke LaMotte moved guests to their feet who danced both poolside and inside several VIP lounges set up across the venue.  Raffle Prizes included a stay at the newly revamped Shelborne South Beach Hotel, a custom pair of Del Toro shoes, an exclusive case of Atlantico Private CaskRum and tickets to see Madama Butterfly at the Miami Lyric Opera.

A children’s-need based organization established nearly a decade ago in Palm Beach, Florida, The Paradise Fund is expanding its operations to Miami, New York City and Los Angeles this year. The launch of Paradise Fund: Miami marked the first in a series of nationwide launch parties designed to engage its guests and encourage their involvement in the Fund’s philanthropic works both locally and around the world. Second only to its mission to benefit children’s health, welfare and education, with events like Paradise Casino, held annual at the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum in Palm Beach each November, The Paradise Fund is quickly re-defining a new generation of fundraising events. “Our local Board of Trustee’s is working hard to create a special, annual fundraiser, the likes of which Miami has never seen”, said Chris DiSchino, co-founder and chairman of The Paradise Fund’s Miami Chapter. The Paradise Fund’s current projects include working with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as well as community redevelopment in post-earthquake Port Au Prince, Haiti.
