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.

Gala Details

To celebrate her milestone 100th birthday, the Countess has asked her beloved Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller Commandery of Florida to organize her official birthday celebration - a once-in-a-lifetime extraordinary charitable fundraising event - whose proceeds will entirely benefit local charities.

Continuing her decades-old tradition of selfless generosity, our major U.S. philanthropist and community leader asks nothing for herself - no gifts, please - except to attend and to continue her legacy to "Give while you live, so you know where it goes!"

The Countess cordially invites all her friends and her entire community to her "party with a purpose" on September 24, 2012, because, as she says, "Giving begins at home, and this is our home!"

Since 1981, the Countess de Hoernle has selflessly given away tens of millions of her personal funds to local Boca Raton charities. Her personal 100th birthday wish is that its celebration be a fundraiser for local charities. We ask you to please help us achieve the Countess's goal of donating 100% of the evening's proceeds to those in our community who need it most by considering an event underwriting sponsorship opportunity in her honor or by placing a journal ad or birthday greeting in her honor.
