'Art Matters:' Boca Museum of Art to host black-tie benefit
On March 15, more than 300 guests will gather at the Boca Raton Resort & Club to celebrate their love of art and raise funds for the Boca Museum of Art's comprehensive education programs.
The "Boca Museum of Art Benefit" will feature an evening of dining, dancing and entertainment in support the museum's "art matters" fundraising initiative. Ticket sales and a silent auction will support the museum's year-round programs, which include free field trips for students in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, and art programs at afterschool centers serving 1,000 children from low-income families.
Among the supporters are co-chairs Peg Greenspon and Kevin Cooper, and honorary chairs Edith and Martin Stein. The evening will also include the presentation of the Jean Spence Award to board trustees, Beatrice Cummings Mayer and Mary Jane Pollack, who have provided 42 years of service.
The black-tie benefit will take place 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $375 per person.
