PALM BEACH, FL-A few measly raindrops couldn’t dampen the party mood on Friday, December 4, 2009, as LIFE hosted the 16th annual "Lady in Red" Gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach. Larry King, whose arrival miraculously brought out the clear skies and chased away the rain, emceed this incredible evening with entertainment from veteran performer Dean of Impersonators, Rich Little. Lois Pope and Dick Robinson were Chairmen and thanks to the generosity of Simon Fireman, who graciously donated $100,000 for the second year in a row, more than 100 disabled veterans were able to join the fun. 


LIFE’s unwavering supporter, Tiffany & Co.  provided fabulous gifts and prizes for the lucky guests of the “Lady in Red“.  Star Ruby Benefactor Braman Motorcars generously donated a racy red convertible Mini Cooper, which went home with Lorraine and Malcolm Hall.  The beautiful décor was provided in part thanks to a generous in-kind donation from Susan Bubis and Susan Sachs from Great Events.  Soul Survivors once again provided top-notch musical entertainment in Mar-a-Lago’s exquisitely beautiful ballroom keeping guests dancing until the wee hours of the morning! 


Liz and Jeff Bateman, Senior Regional Vice President for Tiffany & Co. were Honorary Chairmen of the “Lady in Red” Gala. Suzi Goldsmith and Ari Rifkin served as Co-Chairwomen.   Also on hand for this festive and star-studded kick-off for the Palm Beach Gala Season were Donald and Melania Trump, Cindy and Vince Cerone, Vivian Noranha-Ms. Brazil, Paul Pope, Marty Allen, Mac Schwebel, Gordon Mansfield, Nathalie de la Valle Fernandez, Patrick Park, Petra Levin, Sunny and Lenny Sessa, Patty Myura, Lorrain and Malcolm Hall, Robin and Richard Bernstein, Helen and Richard DeVos, Mary and Mark Freitas, Elsa Johnson and David Braun, Amy and Andrew Bellar, and
 Mary and Art Wilson. 


Adding to the celebratory atmosphere were the nuptials of Terry and Joe Mendozza, Elisa and Domenic Papparone’s
30th wedding anniversary and the birthday of Lois Pope’s daughter Maria Kessel. 


LIFE took great pleasure on this special evening to honor Rhoda & David Chase with The Philanthropist Extraordinaire Award, proudly presented Hermé de Wyman Miro, Grande Dame of Palm Beach, with the prestigious Victoria Award, Leo Albert was remembered with
The Disabled Veterans LIFE Award, In Loving Memory and Simon C. Fireman was awarded The Disabled Veterans Star Award.


LIFE also honored Lynn Chwatsky from Sesame Workshop with the Disabled Veterans Community Award, in recognition of its profoundly moving television special “Coming Home: Military Families Cope With Change” that aired earlier this year on PBS.
