The Eleventh Annual Old Bags Luncheon


The Eleventh Annual Old Bags Luncheon held at The Breakers on March 26th to benefit The Center for Family Services of Palm Beach County was a spectacular success, chaired by Amie Swan and Erin McGould with Mary Freitas as honorary chairwoman.


The event featured a champagne reception and magnificent silent auction of designer handbags and jewelry. Saks Fifth Avenue was the Platinum Corporate Benefactor and Tony Duquette for Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach was the Gold Corporate Benefactor, donating an 18 kt gold and citrine brooch for the grand raffle prize.  Silent Auction Benefactors were Neiman Marcus and Harl Taylor BAG from Nassau, The Bahamas. Grand Benefactors were Erin and Sean McGould and Benefactors were Lisa and Peter Erdmann, Frances and Jeffrey Fisher and Sheryll and David Harkins. Platinum Patrons included Florence and Lawrence De George, Mary and Mark Freitas, Arlette and Robert Gordon, Suzy Minkoff, Kit and William Pannill, and Amie and Jack Swan.


During the luncheon George Hamilton dazzled nearly 400 guests with his light-heartedness and charm, sharing humorous anecdotes about his life and career.  The event also highlighted a former client, who spoke about how The Center helped her regain her self-worth and dignity after being in a domestically abusive relationship. “This great organization has saved my life by giving me the tools to move on…to learn to love myself and others, knowing that no one can ever take that away from me again.”


Funds raised from the Old Bags Luncheon benefit The Center for Family Services’ counseling services for children and adults who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse through the SAFE Kids Program, as well as The Center’s emergency shelter for homeless families with children, Pat Reeves Village. The organization’s mission is strengthening families through counseling, education and homeless intervention.
