The Friends of Fisher House held their first fundraiser in Palm Beach this week with a celebrity bartender event at Ta-boo.
The charity funds a program that allows the families of vets treated at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center to stay in a nearby home free of charge.
And the rare off-season social gathering showed Palm Beachers would go for the occasional party in July, long after most of society migrated north: More than 400 people made it to the Worth Avenue eatery for the event!
Among them: U.S. Congress hopeful Lois Frankel; Joseph Dryer, one of the few remaining survivors of the attack on Iwo Jima; Vietnam hero Jerold Klein; World War II vet Daniel R. Baer who served in World War II; and Desmond Price who recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan after being deployed five times!
