Christine and Bob Stiller hosted a kickoff cocktail reception at their oceanfront house in Palm Beach on November 30, 2018, in honor of the upcoming 12th Annual Policemen’s Ball at the Mar a Lago Club on January 6, 2018.
More than 140 guests attended the party and were welcomed by The Palm Beach Police Foundation President and Co-founder John F. Scarpa, who presented the Stillers with a commemorative gift to thank them for their hospitality and generosity. Scarpa also thanked Gaye and Jim Engel, Gala Chairmen, and Honorary Chairmen Monika and John Preston for their service and leadership roles in the upcoming Policemen’s Ball, which is already sold out. He acknowledged the attendance of members of the Town Council, Palm Beach Police Foundation Board, the Foundation’s Council of 100, and Palm Beach Police Department, including Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin and Deputy Chief Ann-Marie Taylor.
