The St. George’s Society of Palm Beach recently hosted a fashion show and luncheon fundraiser for Florida Atlantic University’s Department of History and raised $7,000 in support of British studies and related faculty research within the department. The event took place at the Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach.
“We were so happy we could support FAU’s Department of History,” said Susan Oyer, president of the local St. George’s Society and an FAU history alumna. “FAU faculty often present lectures at our meetings, and we’re happy to give back in this way.”
The St. George's Society of Palm Beach is a nonprofit, charitable, and social organization that seeks to foster a love of the history of England, the English language, and the English culture, traditions, and heritage that have influenced the unity between the United States and England. It also promotes fellowship among its members as well as providing support for educational, social and cultural efforts in England through activities and fundraising in Palm Beach County.”
