PALM BEACH, FLEtonella Christlieb and Monica Ericksonwill serve as honorary chairs of the second annual “Portrait of a Woman” spring luncheon, benefitting Quantum House.

The program, to be held March 21, 2013, at 11:30 a.m. at a private club in Palm Beach, coincides with National Women’s History Month.

Renee D. Plevy
, founder of the benefit, and Bobbi Shorr are chairing the event.

Honorary Committee members include Edith Gelfand, Arlette Gordon and Gail Worth from Palm Beach; Shelley Cabangon and Debbie Schwartzberg from West Palm Beach; Johanna Klausen of Royal Palm Beach; Geri Morrow, from Singer Island; and Joan Rubin of Boynton Beach.

The four honorees and “grand matriarch” will be announced later.

Last year’s Portrait of a Woman Honorees included Dorothy Sullivan (Grand Honoree), the Countess de Hoernle (Grand Honorary Matriarch), Honorary Matriarchs Helen Babione and Suzy Minkoff, and five special honorees: Bobbi Horwich, Lynda Levitsky, Jacie Keeley, Sherry Frankel and Dr. Maria M. Vallejo.

The Portrait of a Woman program recognizes its annual honorees and matriarchs through original oil portraits painted by Plevy, a portraitist, that will be displayed at leading venues throughout Palm Beach County.

“This event is our way of saluting special women from throughout Palm Beach County for their major long-term contributions to our overall community, as well as to individuals, businesses, civic organizations and charities,” said Shorr.

Tickets are $135, and sponsorship opportunities are available.

Quantum House provides lodging for families whose children are receiving treatment in Palm Beach County for a serious medical condition. Located on the campus of The Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center, it is the only facility of its kind between Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
