Jill Davis and Mary Frances Walde ended up chairwomen for the afternoon, which began with a reception and silent auction in the Ocean Lounge.
Right after the blend-and-mingle, attendees moved to the aptly named Ocean Place — with its sweeping check out of the turquoise waves — for lunch and remarks from the luncheon chairwomen and from Gen. Richard Cody (U.S. Military, retired), chairman of the board of the event’s beneficiary, Households For Our Troops.
The corporation builds — from the floor up — and then donates specially tailored custom homes nationwide for seriously wounded post-9/11 veterans, to empower them to rebuild their lives.
Cody launched Justin and Katie Callahan, recipients of a household created not long ago in Jupiter Farms. Justin was deployed in Afghanistan when he was significantly injured by an IED and lost his leg.
Their new household, with its wheelchair-friendly facilities, has “made our life infinitely less difficult.” Justin mentioned.
The afternoon’s highlight was a runway manner clearly show of St. John’s spring-summer time selection and bundled a runway visual appeal by Katie Callahan in a purple-and-black ensemble that was later gifted to her.
Paula Butler, Susan Erichsen, and Kathryn Vecellio were co-chairwomen.
More than 100 people attended.
