The 10th annual “Paint the Town Green” gala for Raintree Children & Family Services honored Kathy Randall, longtime volunteer and supporter, for her service and support for our community’s most vulnerable children and youth.

The event took place in the picturesque Pavilion of the Two Sisters at City Park. Floating calla lilies were illuminated in tall glass cylinders atop green satin table runners. Gold chiavari chairs and crisp white linens provided guests with an elegant dining experience to enjoy selections from more than a dozen restaurants, including: Ruth’s Chris Steak House, GW Fins, Antoine’s, Drago’s, Palace Café, Royal Sonesta Hotel, Haydel’s Bakery, La Louisiana, Pavilion of the Two Sisters, 12 Seasons Catering and Chateau Golf & Country Club.

Guests also enjoyed music by The Yat Pack.

An auction allowed guest to bid on over 100 items including a California Wine Country Vacation with airfare, a private in-home dinner, an original oil painting from Michalopoulos Gallery, a Navarre Beach vacation, jewelry and hotel and dining experiences.

Debbie Alciatore-Empey, Lana Duke and Cindy Paulin served as Event Co-Chairs. Mark Romig served as Emcee.

Raintree helps more than 300 at-risk children and youth each year through its programs: Raintree House, a safe home for abused and neglected foster girls; Raintree Family Support Coordination, which provides case management services for infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities and delays; and Raintree Family Care, providing foster children with a safe home in the community with a loving family.
