Palm Beach, FL (February 27, 2019) – Art lovers, food connoisseurs, and philanthropists gathered together at the renowned Findlay Galleries on Friday, February 22, 2019 for The Art of Trust to benefit Trustbridge Hospice Foundation. The evening was hosted by Findlay Galleries Chairman and CEO, James R. Borynack and Adolfo Zaralegui and honored long time Hospice supporters Mr. & Mrs. Richard P. Callahan.
Mr. Callahan has been part of hospice for 25 years, serving on the Board and as President of the Palm Beach Island Hospice Foundation and as Chairman and Board Member of Trustbridge Hospice Foundation. In his business career, Mr. Callahan served as General Counsel to Bill Koch’s company for 30 years and also on the Boards of his successful 1992 America’s Cup campaign and the Women’s team of 1995. Presently he serves on the Board at Oxbridge Academy.
“Findlay Galleries was honored to once again support Trustbridge Hospice Foundation with The Art of Trust. We recognize the important role that Hospice plays as it cares for patients and families in our community, and we are committed to continuing our dedicated support for another decade before us,” said James R. Borynack.
Guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails while browsing and bidding on more than 70 pieces of artwork generously donated by Findlay Galleries. Following the conclusion of the silent art auction, guests were escorted up to the 3rd. floor private residence and iconic Terrace overlooking Worth Avenue where they enjoyed a sumptuous three-course dinner created by the “Private” but renowned Chef Chris Marshall. Chef Chris began his career in Boston and was a member of Chef Jody Adams’ 1997 James Beard Award Winning team at Rialto in the Charles Hotel. Following his 1998 move to Florida, Chef Chris lead kitchen teams for many illustrious restaurants, including James Beard Award Winner Norm Van Aken’s Norman’s in Coral Gables, culminating with opening his own gourmet retail café Bronze. Today, Chef Chris is the driving force behind Hampton Forks.
Proceeds from the event, which raised over $145,000, support the programs and services of Trustbridge, including comfort care, charitable care, music therapy and adult and children’s bereavement services. “I would like to personally thank James R. Borynack and Adolfo Zaralegui for their generosity in completely underwriting The Art of Trust and their continued support of Hospice care in our community,” remarked Foundation President Greg Leach.
