Dr. Theodore F. GersonWhen I arrived in West Palm Beach in 1952, to open my obstetrics and gynecology practice, you could "roll up the streets a twilight." It was a little town and I watched the town slowly develop. When the suggestion came to create a performing arts center, I sensed this could be a turning point for our community—and so it was! I immediately made a contribution to the building campaign and delighted in following the building's construction progress. In the early years of the Kravis Center's existence, my growing OBGYN practice limited the time I could spend attending performances. Over time my practice grew and so did my real estate holdings. I was very fortunate, indeed. Now, at age 92, I am retired and I can regularly attend the Regional Arts and Kravis on Broadway performances, and, yes, I enjoy every moment.

Recently, I made the decision to include the Kravis Center, along with many other charities, in my estate plan. In my life-time, I have seen what a difference a world-class performing arts center can do to inspire and uplift a community. If I can help perpetuate the joy of music and theater for future generations, I am glad to do so. It gives me great pleasure to be a member of the Helen K. Persson Society.
