PALM BEACH, FL (January 16, 2015) – Honorary gala chairs Tara Kelleher and Roy Zuckerberg opened their Breakers Row apartment on January 15 to celebrate the chairpersons, host committee and sponsors of the Community Foundation’s Paradise Found Gala. For the first time, this year’s sold-out gala will be held at The Breakers on January 22 and will be a modern interpretation of paradise.
