Symphony of the Americas Society Hosts

Annual Style & Substance Luncheon


On April 8, 2016, the Symphony of the Americas Society hosted its Annual Style & Substance Luncheon at The Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale, honoring prominent individuals who have distinguished themselves through outstanding service and commitment to our community. This exceptional group has reached out to touch the lives of untold numbers of people through their generous gifts of time, talent, and resources. 


Included are: David Boothe, Tracy L. Bradford, Greg & Pamela Cook, Rose Marie Cossick, Commissioner Chip & Eileen LaMarca, Carl Taylor & Charlotte Mather-Taylor, Juliet Murphy Roulhac, Randy & Kim Sweers, Mark & Christine Swenson.


The highlight of the Luncheon was the presentation to Rose Miniaci of The Rose Miniaci Legacy Award.  She is a woman who embodies the true spirit of philanthropy and service.  This special lady, with music in her heart, has enriched the lives of thousands throughout South Florida through her commitment to art, music, dance, theater, and other cultural endeavors.


The Style & Substance Luncheon was Co-Chaired by Lisa Scott-Founds and Paul Sallarulo and included a performance by the Symphony’s Chamber Orchestra. Over 400 guests attended the Luncheon, which benefits the Symphony’s Outreach Programs, reaching over 35,000 people annually.


Now concluding its 28th season, the Symphony of the Americas, Broward’s own professional orchestra, has been designated as a Broward County Major Cultural Institution.  Since it was founded in 1987, the orchestra has brought the best of classical music to South Florida. Its focus is enriching the lives of the people it touches through the wonderful power of music.
