Luncheon

Invitation Only

The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach will celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Robert I. Ballinger Award with an award presentation and luncheon at the Breakers.  Mr. Ballinger worked tirelessly for many years to instill pride in the island’s architectural heritage. The medal itself, struck by noted sculptor Edward Grove, bears the likeness of a bust of Mr. Ballinger that was sculpted by Mr. Ballinger’s wife, Didi Ballinger.

The event will highlight this year's award winner and the Foundation's recent publication, Palm Beach: An Architectural Heritage. Detailing the meticulous restorations of thirty-eight grand estates and public buildings, the elegant volume awes and inspires with images of historic properties that have received the coveted Ballinger Award over the past thirty years.

Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, author of the book's forward, will be present at the luncheon to speak on the importance of historic preservation and recognition of the private owners who serve as guardians of Palm Beach's heritage.
