Naples, Fl (September 20, 2019)
A record number of guests attended Youth Haven’s 5th Annual Party with a Purpose on Friday, September 13, 2019. The event was held at 7th Avenue Social, who generously donated their restaurant space for the event. Over $13,000 was raised to benefit the abused, abandoned and homeless children and teens that call Youth Haven home.
The annual event featured a “Caribbean Chic” theme and included light bites, raffle opportunities, silent auction, music and more. This cocktail event welcomed young professionals and beyond for an evening of “friend-raising fun”.
The Party with a Purpose committee consisted of Committee Co-Chairs: Charlie Miller and Jacqui Resop; and Committee Members: Mo Camocho, Cassie Chase, Melissa Clark, Jessica Judd, Shannon Morford, Allison Murrell and Bridget Paterno. Sponsors were GL Homes, AMS Sound & Vision, Chris Resop Realty, Creative Interior Design, Cypress & Palm Boutique, Francis L. Dean & Associates, Grant Fridkin Pearson, Lennar, The Players Club & Spa, and Tom & Kathie Resop.
“Not only was this a fun and engaging event, we raised over $13,000 to support Youth Haven and its programs,” said Jinx Liggett, Executive Director. “Our committee, sponsors, vendors and Youth Haven team all went above and beyond to make our 5th Annual Party with a Purpose a resounding success. We can’t wait until next year’s Party with a Purpose!”
