The Official Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle 100th Birthday Benefit Gala is presented by the Countess’s beloved Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller Commandery of Florida.

Community Appreciation

Countess de Hoernle Day

Throughout the day on the 100th birthday of Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, September 24th, the community is encouraged to pay visual tribute to the Countess for her patriotism for the United States, her “country by choice”, by wearing red, white, and blue and wrapping trees with red, white, and blue ribbons. 


Record-Breaking Birthday Card

In preparation for the gala event, the public-at-large is invited and encouraged to come out this summer to sign birthday card panels (available from mid-July to early-September) that will be on display at convenient locations throughout the community. The panels will then be merged as one card for its debut at the gala event celebration. 


Get Involved

Details will soon be announced about where and how residents, nonprofits, schools, companies, and City and County officials and staff can participate in what is expected to be a heart-warming, record-breaking initiative.
