Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 196&-C11 Heart Association Connected W ith Fun In Sun? 1H event to be held Feb. U at the Palm Beach Towers. The Heart Ball is typical of a season-full uf charity events held in Palm Beach. They are Kay and lavish and they do a world of good in contributing In a better Hie for millions outside the Palm Beach orhit. Picture yourself at the International Red Cross (Jala. It's aptly named since each year ambassadors and their wives from numerous countries around the world fly south especially for the occa sion. At this tall white tie and tails are derigueur. The ambassadors also wear their decorations. Dior. Balenciaga, Bill Blass, all the fine designers are consulted by the ladies turning the ball into a lashion show of smart ele- gance. Jewels sparkle by the millions and a good many of the ladies wear diamond tiaras. Evening turtlenecks? Never at the International Gala. Mrs. Owen Cheatham, who is known for her philanthropy. will be chairman again this year. Mrs. Marjorie Merrl-weather Post Is the honorary-chairman. With a ball of this magnitude there's more to it than sending out invitations. Tickets are priced at $130.00 and Crowd Expected At Concert so guests can dance under the stars. Charity on the local level gets a decided boost early in the season when members of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches hold their annual Holiday Charity Ball. The date this year is December 7 and it will be held at the Breakers Hotel. By far the largest receipts reported last year went to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Vehsiva University. Approximately $1,300,000 was raised at the annual dinner through the sale of tickets and from cash contributions. On a lesser scale but equally important to this communitv are the Civic Opera Ball anil the Fete du Soliel. Last year the Opera Ball raised more than $20,000 to abet the cause of culture in the Palm Beach-es.These are just the highlights ct a charitable package that adds up to several million even the wealthiest people in the world want value for their money. Mrs. Cheatham sees they get It. To add to the ex-: cltement of the evening each guest leaves with an armload of gifts. The guest list this year is absolutely limited to 300. There's dancing, of course, and a banquet prepared In the best Breakers Hotel tradition but what it really adds up to Is a donation to boost the Red Cross cause. Charity Is local as well as national. One of the largest balls of the season benefits Palm Beach County hospitals. St. Mary's Hospital and Good Samaritan are richer thanks to the winter residents of Palm Beach County. The Hospital Bail Is the one event of the season held in the Everglades Club. Each year the ball committee devises intricate ways of decorating the Orange Garden. If the weather is clear the roof will be opened Kor decades the idea has persisled that heart disease was the price paid for occupational success. During through research partly financed by the American Heart Association, the concept of the Kxecutive Heart has changed completely. Results of a five-year study now indicate that the more successful the executive the less likely he is to have heart trouble. What does that have to do with fun in the sun in Florida? Actually, quite a bit. Annually the Heart Ball held in Palm Beach raises a six-figured donation lor research. Mrs. Robert Sonquist is chairman of the Party Greatest Ever! The Boston Tea Party has nothing on the tea party of the Woman's Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital. But the Bath and Tennis Club will be the setting not Boston Harbor and tea will be drunk not dunked. The tea and card party Saturday, Nov. 30, Is a fund-raising event to benefit the pediatric floor of Good Samaritan Hospital. I Noted fashion designer Teal Traina will personally show his new collection and bridge games are planned. i All in all, according to Chairman Lady Diana Ewing. '.'Twill be the best ever."
