This year’s “Jetset” theme had attendees high flying and transported through a culinary experience with over 30 local participating restaurants. The Addison hosted the event and included dynamic live performances.

Joined the grand opening celebration of ZALDIVAR at their first US location in Boca Raton at the Town Center Mall on Friday, February 8th.  

Conceived in Paris and realized in Paraguay, ZALDIVAR

Bonnie Gora Pamela Weinroth and Beverly Kennedy

embodies a new vision of wearable objects that juxtaposes innovative contemporary design with time-honored traditional skills in working with gemstones and precious metal. 


Each ZALDIVAR piece is endowed with a soul and bears a message of love. Each creation marks a step along the journey of human development and speaks of physical perfection in the poetry of gold and stones. Every item tells the unique story of the selection of its raw materials, the craftsmanship of its construction, and the global influences of its design.

Come celebrate my birthday with me at Festival of the Arts on Friday, March 1st when The Symphonia performs John Williams’ Academy Award-winning score of Star Wars: A New Hope, during a grand showing of the epic film that started it all.

Even if you know the story well or have seen the film several times, there is nothing like seeing this, the first-ever Star Wars film, accompanied by the booming brass and lush strings of a full symphony orchestra. Constantine Kitsopoulos conducts, and the force is sure to be with all in attendance.
