Cen­ter for Fam­ily Ser­vices’ ‘Princess and Pi­rates Ball’

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

The In­ter­na­tional Polo Club Palm Beach will fill with tiny tiaras and pint-sized pi­rates Nov. 16. The third an­nual “Princess and Pi­rate Ball” is a chance for the youngest mem­bers of so­ci­ety to change the lives of peers.

The Cen­ter for Fam­ily Ser­vices of Palm Beach County (CFS) - a na­tion­ally ac­cred­ited, non­profit so­cial ser­vice or­ga­ni­za­tion whose goal is to end the gen­er­a­tional cy­cle of fam­ily vi­o­lence, pro­tect­ing the child and strength­en­ing the fam­ily - will wel­come fam­i­lies to the “Princess and Pi­rates Ball” from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Those at­tend­ing will en­joy a full ar­ray of fun ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a bounce house, DJ, rock climb­ing, Beauty Bar by Frank Cassi Hair& Beauty, and more en­chant­ing and ad­ven­ture­some games. Guests will have din­ner by the bite, and cock­tails or “mock­tails.” The early evening event is a time for cel­e­bra­tion and joy, and it is also a time for chil­dren to dis­cover how phi­lan­thropy can be­gin at nearly any age.

The ball is the sig­na­ture event for the Cen­ter for Fam­ily Ser­vices’ “Kids Help­ing Kids” Club (KHK), which aims to in­crease aware­ness of phi­lan­thropy among youth while mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the life of another child. Pro­ceeds from the “Princess and Pi­rate Ball” will be used to support the Pat ReevesVil­lage Shel­ter, the only 24-hour emer­gency shel­ter in Palm Beach County serv­ing fam­i­lies. The shel­ter also pro­vides life-chang­ing ser­vices to fam­i­lies with chil­dren who are ei­ther home­less or at risk for home­less­ness.

Young mem­bers of the KHK Club cre­ate wel­come bas­kets for new res­i­dents to the Pat Reeves Vil­lage; at­tend and help to or­ga­nize monthly Fam­ily Nights; help with the Pat Reeves Vil­lage Gar­den; and as­sist with food do­na­tions and or­ga­ni­za­tion of the Vil­lage’s food pantry. Many fam­i­lies have grown to­gether through their shared ded­i­ca­tion to oth­ers, which is a pri­mary goal of the Cen­ter for Fam­ily Ser­vices.

The event takes place at the In­ter­na­tional Polo Club Palm Beach, lo­cated at 3667 120th Ave. S in Wellington. Abi­gail Beebe and Amie Swan will serve as co-chairs. Ilana Stoll, Jake Ap­ple and Ava Mur­ray will serve as the Kids Com­mit­tee Chairs, Emma Guer­ri­eri and Max Sil­ver­stein as Ju­nior Honorary Chairs and Sonja and Mark Stevens as Honorary Chairs.

Tick­ets are $150 per adult, $95 per child.
