Boca Raton Art Lovers Tour 2011
The eighth Boca Raton Art Lovers Tour took place in February and once again raised funds for the Retreat for Recovery. The tour organized by Elaine Dover and Joy Schreiber was the largest tour ever and visited the elegant Palm Beach mansion of Sydell Miller, where Sydell gave a personal tour of her unparalleled collection of antiques, paintings and sculptures by 20th century masters. This was followed by lunch at The Chesterfields and a visit to The Society of the Four Arts featuring the jewelry collection of Marjorie Merriweather Post and masterpieces from the Hudson River School home. Beit Natan greatly appreciates all the effort that Elaine and Joy have put into these events over the years.
