We should all strive to leave this world and this community better than we found it. In that regard we owe a great debt of gratitude to those whose vision and dedication created the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. I remember that when we first came to Palm Beach many years ago the Palm Beach area was a virtual cultural desert, especially for those of us who came from other places where we had access to quality performances of all kinds. Thanks to those friends and neighbors who built and maintained the Kravis Center, this community has become so much more livable and enjoyable for all of us.
Kravis has literally transformed our lives here. People who care about the arts can come here knowing that they will find cultural enrichment at Kravis. My family and I have experienced the great pleasure of the Regional Arts series where we have enjoyed performances by the finest orchestras and artists whom Kravis has brought here from all over the world. As well, we have been able to partake of Broadway quality shows and other performances never before available in this area. And we are grateful.
Now it is up to our generation to make sure that Kravis will not only survive but that it will prosper and flourish as it performs its important role of providing culture of all kinds to this community. To this end, in addition to our Founder's gifts, my family and I have included Kravis in our estate plans and we have become members of the Helen K. Persson Society. It is my hope that everyone who can will join this forward thinking Society in order to help ensure that Kravis will be able to maintain and enhance its place as one of the finest cultural centers of America...one of which we can all be proud.
