Helping People Succeed Celebrates 50 Years at Pinot & Picasso – An Evening of Fine Wine and Art!
Helping People Succeed celebrated its 50th Anniversary in an evening of fine wine and art at its special Pinot & Picasso event held at an exclusive private country club in Palm City.
More than 170 guests enjoyed the wine tasting and meeting the 14 artists featured in the 2015 Art for Living Calendar presented by Helping People Succeed each year. The artists featured in the calendar are: Kevin Hutchinson, Jackie Brice, Susan Roberts, Sue Winocur, Lois Sommers, Dan Mackin, Jane Blatt, Nanette Carton, Pam Patterson, Julia Kelly, Curt Whiticar, Valerie Lally, and Stacy Ranieri. Fourteen year old Brad King is a special featured artist for the first time in the calendar.
Helping People Succeed wishes to thank Bill Lichtenberger, the host of the evening, and all who supported the event. Proceeds will directly benefit the non-profit organization that provides programs and services for more than 4,500 families in Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties.
The Live Auction, led by Elliot Paul, was a huge success. Winners included PGA golfer Betsy King receiving a tour of NASA and lunch with an astronaut, golf with Betsy King bid on by Audrey and Bill Crandall, and our host Bill Lichtenberger receiving an original Highwayman painting along with an evening of “painting” with founding Highwayman R.L. Lewis. Another highlight of the evening was the Closest to the Pin Contest. The gifted winner was Bill Crandall.
“Our heartfelt thanks to our host – Bill Lichtenberger, and those who supported Pinot & Picasso. They provided an entertaining evening to benefit Helping People Succeed. We met many new friends for our organization and received great support from new and old,” said Suzy Hutcheson, President/CEO of Helping People Succeed.
