    Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach Co-Chair Announcement 2023

    Pauline Pitt & Mish Tworkowski Announced as Gala Chairmen of the Upcoming Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach Dinner Dance

    March 1st, 2023


    The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach will step back in time for its highly-anticipated annual Dinner Dance scheduled to take place on March 3rd. With an evening themed to the “Golden Age of Palm Beach,” the gala will mark its forty-first year this season and bring together Palm Beach society to celebrate the island’s iconic architecture and natural beauty.

    The organization is delighted to announce this year’s distinguished Co-Chairs, who are both Trustees of the Preservation Foundation:  the eminent Pauline Pitt, a long-standing philanthropist and icon in the community and currently Chairman Emeritus of the Foundation; and the renowned fine jewelry designer, Mish Tworkowski, who relocated his New York City studio to Palm Beach in 2021 and has garnered a discerning international following for his statement-making designs.

    The upcoming Dinner Dance will recall the glamour of the 1920s with creative direction by design impresario Ken Fulk. He is a celebrated interior designer, who has been recognized by Architectural Digest’s AD 100, Elle Décor’s A-List and has been nominated for a James Beard Award for restaurant design. Floral and event designer extraordinaire, Lewis Miller, who opened a studio in Palm Beach last year, will execute the vision through an impressive display of flowers and other details that are being kept under wraps until the evening of the gala.

    “We are thrilled that such an amazing team of visionaries will help us welcome a new Golden Age of Palm Beach,” says Amanda Skier, President & CEO of the Preservation Foundation. “By honoring the rich history in our town, we will surely continue to inspire the community to learn about and protect the places that make Palm Beach special. It has been especially rewarding and meaningful for the team to work closely with our wonderful Archivist, Marie Penny, to highlight some spectacular historic imagery that will surprise and delight this year’s guests.”

    A grand tent will be erected in Bradley Park for the third time since the organization began holding its gala in the park in 2020 (event was virtual in 2021). The waterfront park serves as the site of the town-serving beautification project that the Preservation Foundation completed in 2018.

    Sponsors of the Dinner Dance include Mish Fine Jewelry, Schumacher, Stubbs & Wootton, and White Elephant Palm Beach. 100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation’s education programs and advocacy efforts.   Read more at Palm Beach Illustrated.

    More About the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach

    The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach protects and celebrates the architectural, botanical, and cultural heritage of Palm Beach. Through advocacy initiatives, educational programs, architectural resources, and cultural events, the Foundation’s goal is to inspire the community to learn about and protect the places that make Palm Beach special.

    Over the past 43 years, the Preservation Foundation has undertaken numerous projects throughout the island that protect the heritage and enhance the beauty of Palm Beach. Millions of dollars have been raised to restore historic resources like Sea Gull Cottage, Town Hall and Bradley Park. Projects such as Pan’s Garden have fostered a deeper appreciation for the island’s botanical heritage.  The Preservation Foundation’s latest campaign to redevelop Phipps Ocean Park will restore the Town’s oldest historic landmark and create a model for environmental education and design that will guide future development on the island. Designed by renowned landscape architect Raymond Jungles and the award-winning architecture firm of Fairfax & Sammons, the plans will make the 20-acre coastal park more accessible and gracious as a recreational facility while increasing its usefulness as a resource for both cultural and botanical heritage.
