Crane’s BeachHouse Hosts 100-plus supporters of Spady Museum at 3rd Annual Juneteenth Celebration

DELRAY BEACH Cathy Balestriere, general manager of Crane’s BeachHouse Hotel & Tiki Bar, said more than 100 supporters of the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum attended the recent Juneteenth Celebration at the popular, Key West-style boutique hotel in Delray Beach. The fun-raiser took in more than $6,100 to support the museum’s public offerings and programming.

Co-sponsored by Waste Management and the Arts Radio Network, the Juneteenth Celebration honored the oldest known commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

“Juneteenth was supported with a wide range of raffle donations, valued at more than $12,100, from throughout Delray Beach and Palm Beach County,” said Juneteenth Committee Chair and Spady Board Member Margie Walden. “We want to thank everyone who helped us coordinate a wonderful event, which commemorated a special moment in our nation’s history.”

“This annual event with the Spady Museum is a unique opportunity to marry national history with local culture and collaborate with one of the non-profit organizations that make Delray Beach such a dynamic place to live and play,” said Balestriere.
