Center for Family Services’ ‘Princess and Pirates Ball’
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.
