And it's lucky for the Salvation Army that they do. Sixty-three beautiful, hand-dressed dolls are the focus of the ninth annual Hearts of Gold luncheon sponsored by the Salvation Army's Women's Auxiliary of Palm Beach County. The luncheon will be April 9 at The Breakers in Palm Beach. The dolls are sold at the event to raise money to send needy children to Camp Keystone, the Salvation Army's summer camp, and to raise money for the Christmas Stocking project and the homeless shelter. Last year, the luncheon netted $52,000 for these projects. There were 14 categories for dressing the dolls, and prizes were awarded for first, second, and third place, as well as best in show and favorites of the judges. Among the winners were Ellen Patz of Miami, who dressed eight dolls; Lottie White of Boynton Beach, who is in her 80s and dressed eight dolls; and Jeanne Quam-men of Boynton Beach who dressed nine dolls. Special recognition was given to Carol Kratzel of North Palm Beach, who died in January but had completed dressing six dolls. Lottie White finished one of Kratzel's uncompleted dolls.
