W omen’s Foundation of PB hosts fundraiser

The Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County hosted its inaugural Raise the Bar event at the Historic Palm Beach County Courthouse in West Palm Beach.

More than 250 business and legal professionals attended the networking event, which raised $20,000 to provide scholarships to girls in middle school to high school to attend the Girls’ Leadership Institute, which is presented by the foundation.

“This event was such a great success, we doubled our fundraising goal,” said Samantha Schosberg Feuer, co-founder and board member of the Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County. “Not only did 100 girls get to go to the Girl’s Leadership Institute in mid-April, we now have raised awareness among so many influential individuals in the community and hope they will spread the word about how we empower women and girls to become leaders in the community.”

“We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout to the inaugural Raise the Bar event,” said Nicole Atkinson of Gunster and co-chair of the event. “Everyone who attended truly made an investment in the future of our youth. The young women who are now able attend the Girls’ Leadership Institute will walk away with pride, self-esteem, and tools, which will help them succeed in whatever they pursue.”

This event was made possible through the support of Carlton Fields, FPL, Next Era, Greenberg Traurig, Gunster, Lesser Lesser Landy & Smith, Akerman, Becker & Poliakoff, Fox Rothschild, Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhardt & Shipley, Holland & Knight, ARC Mediation, Cake Kingdom, McCabe Rabin, and Squire Sanders.
