I was born and raised in Washington, D.C. where a plethora of culture was 15 minutes from my home. Between the many museums, galleries, the theaters and the symphony there was always the opportunity to enjoy a performance or to enhance ones education.
I came to the palm Beaches in 1961 and immediately experienced culture shock!! At that time we only had the Norton Museum on a much smaller scale, The Palm Beach Playhouse, and a few Art galleries. Often we would go to Ft. Lauderdale or to Miami for special events.
Plans for the Kravis Center which opened in 1992 created tremendous excitement in our community. Our beloved friend Natalie Stone asked us to host a "Cocktails for Culture" party in our home which we gladly did which helped to raise money for seats. Today the Kravis Center remains very important to Allen and me. We are proud to be Founders as well as Sponsors of a performance each season.
I am committed to the Kravis Center mission to bring exceptional educational programs and outstanding performances to our community for present and future generations. It is my pleasure to include the Kravis Center in my estate planning.
