Valentine Ball

For international event designer Fe Domench of Vero Beach, The Valentine Ball was just another day decorating amazing scenes, but for United Against Poverty (UP) the razzle dazzle night of glitz and glamor she brought to life was a sign of the community’s commitment to learning more about permanent solutions to impact poverty.

The Valentine Ball will be filled with laughter, joy and fun. United Against Poverty and The Valentine Ball committee invites you to join for the ‘Fire & Ice….Feel the Sizzle’ themed event on February 11, 2017 at Oak Harbor Country Club.

This is not a night to miss, with both a live and a silent auction filled with treasures including a variety of great getaways to exotic places, art, decor, wines and spirits, and jewelry from all over the world.

Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, and dancing to Pangea, featuring sizzling tropical sounds from Miami. Complimentary portraits will capture the evening’s memories.

In addition, the grand prize drawing features a pre-paid two-year lease for a 2017 Lexus ES350 from Treasure Coast Lexus.

All of this fun supports United Against Poverty. UP implements a holistic, multi-component approach that provides a hand up to those living under the 200% federal poverty level. The founders, Ginny and Austin Hunt both grew up knowing financial struggles. Their passion to help those in need, combined with a seemingly bottomless supply of energy, gave way to the creation of Harvest Food and Outreach in 2003. With a lot of support of the community and many joyful opportunities, Harvest became United Against Poverty. Ten years after UP was founded it was clear the organization was growing and looking for new ways to help those in need. Thus, The Valentine Ball was established. This year the presenting sponsor is The King Group – Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. We further thank the following sponsors (as of the November 10 deadline) Pamela Harmon and Timothy Muris, 97.1 Ocean FM, and Fidelity Investments.
