With a Tropical Twist, Pinot & Picasso a Hit

Helping People Succeed offered a casually elegant, With a Tropical Twist, vibe at this year’s Pinot & Picasso fundraiser and it was happily embraced by the close to 200 attendees.

The “Pinot & Picasso With a Tropical Twist”, guests were welcomed to Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club with a delectable signature drink and the lively music of the Gratitude Steel Drum Band as they mingled with the 2023 Art for Living Calendar artists. Once guests entered into the club, Bill “Boz” Bosley performed  those tropical favorites during the evening – and in a first for Pinot & Picasso – offered after-dinner dancing.

Jenny Yingling, Governing Board of Directors member, offered a warm welcome and introduced emcee Rob Lord.

As in years past, local philanthropist Bill Lichtenberger was the host for the evening and was honored with a standing ovation.

Sponsors included Marlene Filer with Celebrities Fore Kids, Jim & Jayne Mondello, Barbara Taylor, David & Karen Townsend with the Blueyes Foundation, Bob Crandall, Jack & Ginny Luther with the Bart Blue Star Foundation, Randy and Linda Prange and Bob and Carol Weissman.

Elliot Paul conducted the live auction and Call to Heart, which doubled last year’s financial success and raised monies for Helping People Succeed’s emergent families.

In total, this major fundraiser for the nonprofit surpassed last year’s earnings.

Helping People Succeed has been serving families on the Treasure Coast for more than a half-century and in the past year has focused on broadening the scope of its programs and services in the mental health arena.
