Bob Wright, Chairman and CEO of the Civic Association, and his wife Suzanne opened their home for a reception honoring our major donors. Over 100 contributors, directors, and corporate sponsors attended on a perfect Palm Beach evening overlooking the Intracoastal.
Mr. Wright thanked the audience gathered around the pool and patio, “We’re grateful to you for your generous support. With your help, we’re making great things happen in the Town of Palm Beach.” he said. “The Civic Association is a very effective grassroots organization. We’re engaged in every major issue that impacts the community. With your continued support, we hold forums and public meetings like our candidates’ debate yesterday. We engage consultants, and form coalitions, and commission research, and hire attorneys to protect Palm Beach interests. We create committees to keep the bridges open, and fight Port expansion, and monitor taxes and bury the overhead utility lines. And, we employ full-time staff who work hard every day to improve the quality of life we all enjoy.”
James Meany, Regional Managing Director of First Republic Bank, was introduced as the Civic Association’s Premier Corporate Partner for the season and he spoke of the great opportunity to partner with the Civic Association to protect and preserve the Town of Palm Beach.
