Caron Gala Junior Chairman Announced

February 20, 2012

Two local rising stars join the list of leadership for Caron’s 2012 Gala. Jupiter residents, Martha and Robert DeForest will serve as Junior Chairmen for the Feb. 25, 2012 “After Dark” gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach.

The star-filled evening will feature entertainment headliner, comedian Richard Lewis and former star quarterback for the Washington Redskins, Joe Theismann as emcee for the event.

This year’s gala chairman is Petra Levin, honorary chairman is Donald Trump and honoree is Patrick J. Rooney. Proceeds from the gala benefit the Lifesaver Scholarship Fund at Caron offering scholarships for well-deserving patients and their families seeking addiction treatment.

"My wife and I wanted to be involved with the Caron Foundation not only to help those in need, but also to try and help remove some of the negative stigma surrounding the disease which keeps so many people from seeking help," said DeForest.

Martha and Robert DeForest

Robert DeForest served as Corporate Chairman for the Caron Gala for the past two years and has been on the committee since its inception seven years ago.  He is senior vice president of investments and a portfolio manager at UBS in Palm Beach.

Martha DeForest attended Flagler College in St Augustine and attained her degree in Social Sciences with a concentration in Anthropology.

Corporate sponsor for the 2012 Caron Gala is Tiffany & Co.; grand sponsor is Petra Levin; leadership sponsors are Gold Coast Beverage Distributors, Inc. and Palm Beach Kennel Club; and benefactor sponsor is International Autos, Inc.
