Our goal is to make available resources and solutions that will transform lives - Bob Matthews
Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Bob and Mia Matthews opened their Palm Beach Island home to host the Chairman’s Club, the Community Partnership Group’s second annual fundraiser to benefit the Parent-Child Center. Guests gathered to hear the story of Ms. Istria Duran, who shared her personal testimony of how the Parent-Child Center’s Triple P program helped change her life and that of her young daughter. A year ago she was in danger of losing her daughter, was homeless, and in need of intervention. Today she is successfully housed, enrolled in state college, and is enjoying a very positive relationship with her daughter.
While champagne was poured and hors d’oeuvres were served poolside at the Matthews’ island residence, the night also honored Ms. Diana Stanley as a collaborative partner and community hero for her courageous and visionary leadership in bringing positive change to the community. President and CEO Patrick McNamara spoke of Ms. Stanley’s contribution and recognized her impact in helping care for the community’s most vulnerable children and families.
