A History of Helping

PALM BEACH, FL – The Salvation Army celebrated its 90th anniversary in Palm Beach County with its annual Hearts of Gold luncheon at the Sailfish Club.
Co-chairs were Carol Brummett and Maria Mamlouk. Henry “Budge” Jamison sponsored The Salvation Army at the club.
Palm Beach County historian and lawyer Harvey E. Oyer, III discussed the history of Palm Beach County and The Salvation Army’s long record of achievement in the community. Luncheon sponsors included Ackerman, Link & Sartory and Phyllis Freed.The luncheon raised more than $26,000 to support The Salvation Army’s local programs. Last year the Women’s Auxiliary raised $40,000 to help fund county programs, including the Northwest Community Center’s Friday night programming and summer day camp, where inner city children have a safe haven; social services for people living around Lake Okeechobee; the Center of Hope Mentoring Program, where individuals receive quality care at The Salvation Army live-in facility; and a gift to one of 23 Mexico Children’s Homes operated by The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County has been serving area residents since 1922. It is an international movement and an evangelical part of the universal Christian church.
