The 9th Annual Heart & Soul Gala chaired by Palm Beach’s Anka Palitz and honoring Wendy Whelan and Dr. Omar & Cheryl Almallah was held at The Breakers last night. Check out the VIDEO and photos.
The evening featured incredible dancing by the Boca Ballet and Ballet Palm Beach. Rob Russel, one of the “talented voices of Palm Beach” was the MC and vocalist for the festivities and Palm Beach’s favorite auctioneer Jay Zeager was on hand to help the evening become a financial success for Dancers in Transition. Dr. Omar & Cheryl Almallah displayed their elegant and sophisticated Ballroom dancing and the Heart & Soul Gala guests courageously joined in. Wendy Whelan, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet shared her moving “transition” story with the audience as did Mary Roberts. The Actors Fund CEO Joseph Benincasa was also on hand to address the Heart & Soul Gala. This was a graceful evening on all levels. Congratulations to Anka Palitz and her co-chairs Lois Pope and Ann Van Ness.
