The Order of St. John Commandery of Florida Distributes $275,000 to Local Charities, Countess de Hoernle’s 100th Birthday Benefit Gala Produces Holiday Gift for Thousands in South Florida



Boca Raton, FL (December 10, 2012) – The 23 Members of one of the world’s oldest Orders of Chivalry approved the distribution of $275,000 to six local charities just in time for the upcoming holiday season. The funds were raised mostly from a single event, the local philanthropist Countess de Hoernle’s 100th Birthday benefit gala held on September 24th. Boca Raton-based Order of St. John Commandery of Florida produced and presented the event.

A revered member and patroness of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller, Dame Henrietta attended the meeting that awarded five life-changing charitable awards that averaged more than $40,000 each to Boca Helping Hands, Family Promise of South Palm Beach County, Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, Inc. Homeless Veterans Initiative, HomeSafe and Spirit of Giving Network.

The OSJ Commandery of Florida’s holiday gift provides funding for: Boca Helping Hands’ “Blessings In A Backpack” weekend meals for children and cover the organization’s daily lunch program for one day each week for one year; Family Promise of South Palm Beach County’s Child Care Program; Gulfstream Goodwill’s “Project Success” and “Project Succeed” services for its clients, particularly residents living in Homeless Veteran’s Residential Housing; HomeSafe’s “Safety Net” program offering immediate intervention and prevention services to victims of domestic violence and their children and its “Life Skills” life management program; and Spirit of Giving Network’s pre-school medical screenings program as well as major support for its “Community Back to School Bash” that annually distributes backpacks, school supplies and clothing for school-age children of low income families.

In a separate action, an additional $20,000 grant was made to FoundCare, Inc., located in West Palm Beach, to provide dental care for those without medical insurance and $5,000 to the OSJ’s New York and New Jersey Commanderies for distribution to relief agencies helping victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Gala Chair and local Commandery leader, Commander Isabelle Paul DCGSJ, said “The mission of our 1,000-year old Order of St. John has always been to care for the sick and poor. Our sister in St. John, the Countess de Hoernle, is a model of local charitable giving and the celebration of her centenary resulted in what we believe to the largest gift produced from a single OSJ event—her 100th birthday,” she added.

California Pizza Kitchen Debuts New Flagship Location in Sawgrass Mills Unveiling the California-Style Pizza Authority’s “Reimagined” Brand Vision



CPK’S Next Chapter Is Reflected in Every Detail
of New Prototype
 From Redesigned Pizza Counter, 
Celebrated Return of Hand-Tossed California-Style Pizzas,
Innovative Beverage Offerings
Including New Signature Cocktails and Flights of Wine

LOS ANGELES (December 3, 2012)—California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority on California-style pizza and creator of the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, opened its new flagship restaurant today at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, FL, officially unveiling the company’s new physical space, repositioning of its iconic pizza hearth and new beverage offerings. According to CPK CEO G.J. Hart, the new 5,390-square-foot venue with a 1,000-square-foot wraparound patio with outdoor couch and lounge seating “brings CPK back to its roots as a company that embraces all the things that made it what it is—beginning with California creativity.”

CPK Brings California Creativity to Every Meal

Being ‘Californian’ is not about a place; it’s a mindset,” noted Hart. “California has never really followed the rules. Thus we are constantly experimenting and trying new things.”

With its new ‘reimagined’ concept demonstrated at its new flagship restaurant in Sawgrass Mills, California Pizza Kitchen plans to bring a stronger California infusion to locations throughout the country and continue to serve up a fresh, hip, energetic, interactive atmosphere for its guests. 

At the new restaurant, guests will notice a totally re-created communal space with flexible, less structured indoor seating, including a family-style table seating 16, versus traditional fixed built-in booths. Other new seating options include a large social-styled bar near the entrance or an outdoor terrace fitted with comfortable lounge seating areas and fire pits. California Pizza Kitchen’s traditional pizza counter has been re-designed to make the hearth an even bigger focal point, giving guests the opportunity to interact with CPK’s pizza chefs and watch them at work as they now hand-stretch and toss CPK’s signature pizza dough.

California’s notable environmental roots are evident in CPK’s use of unfinished reclaimed wood in and outside of the restaurant. Trestlewood planks salvaged from the Great Salt Lake railroad trestle don the entrance and patio walls.  Reclaimed solid Timber Oak Planks reused from old barn timbers throughout America, and painstakingly refurbished to retain knot holes, hand-tooling marks, nail holes, and other character marks flank the bar and Herringbone walls. Tables are made of salvaged solid American White Oak rough sawn wood with natural knot holes, variations and other character marks.

“The reclaimed wood offers a casual, but refined feel,” noted Hart.  “Very warm in color.”

To further transport California into the South Florida locale, a gallery of canvases fills a large wall with black and white photos of California interspersed with full-color photographs of favorite local spots.

Taking The Menu To The Next Level: Surprising, Eyebrow Raising, Smile Making

“Food isn’t meant to be timeless, it should be surprising yet accessible,” noted California Pizza Kitchen Senior Vice President of Culinary Innovation Brian Sullivan. “California Pizza Kitchen put California pizza on the map, and forever changed the way people thought about pizza because being Californian means daring to re-imagine the norm—to discover something new. The perfect dish should raise an eyebrow and make you smile.”

CPK’s authentic California approach to cooking and dining means creating interesting, freshly-made items prepared with high quality ingredients and uncomplicated pairings (flavors, dishes, beverages). Its new menu and beverage offerings have been designed to encourage guests to go on culinary adventures including three wine flight options: Keep Calm and Chardonnay, California Reds and Adventurous, each allowing guests to experience three, 3-ounce glasses of different wines from the menu. Eight signature cocktails are also being introduced including “Route 1,” made with Hangar 1 Mandarin Blosson Vodka and 1800 Silver Tequila and a Strawberry Basil Martini made with VeeV Acai Spirt, Perfect Puree Strawberry and fresh agave sour. 

“We want our guests to be as inspired by food as we are,” added Sullivan. “We believe that great meals start with great people—people who have passion for creating the best dining experience possible. At our core, we’re passionate about creating meals that you can’t find anywhere else. We embrace culinary traditions—but we’re always looking for ways to make them new, which means bolder and unexpected ingredients and flavors.”

The Guest Experience Moving Forward

“While some of the new concept elements have been tested in other CPK locations, this new flagship restaurant features a comprehensive demonstration of what’s in store for guests in the company’s next chapter,” added Hart.  “Based on layout and building specifications of other CPK locations, we will be incorporating elements of the new design where we can.”

The new flagship, the seventh full-service CPK in South Florida, will open with its location at Sawgrass Mills Mall in The Oasis, across from Nordstrom Rack at 2610 Sawgrass Mills Circle, Sunrise, FL 33323. Operating hours (including curbside take-out with designated reserved parking) are Sunday: 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Monday-Thursday: 11 a.m. -11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m.-12 midnight. For more information, call (954) 465-2041; fax number for take orders is (954) 845-1192.

LPGA LEGEND AND EIGHT-TIME “PLAYER OF THE YEAR” ANNIKA SORENSTAM RETURNS TO HEADLINE ALLIANZ CHAMPIONSHIP WOMEN’S EXECUTIVE PRO-AM POWER BREAKFAST, GOLF CLINIC, AND PLAY


BOCA RATON, FL (November 26, 2012) -- Getting the ladies into “the swing” of championship golf and better business, LPGA legend with 72 LPGA victories and eight-time “player of the year” Annika Sorenstam (www.annikasorenstam.com) will give tips on women’s business empowerment and golf at the tee-off of the third annual Allianz Championship Women’s Executive Pro-Am on Tuesday, February 5th at the Old Course at Broken Sound Club at 10:30 a.m.  The women’s executive “starter” power breakfast for golfers and non-golfers (with corporate tables) and the Pro-Am tournament for 36 executive women (nine foursomes) is part of the 2013 Allianz Championship, a celebrated week-long PGA Champions Tour event, the first full-field event of the season, bringing the legendary champions of golf to Boca Raton to vie for a $1.8 million purse.  
“Chipping in” net proceeds to benefit Boca Raton Regional Hospital, the Women’s Executive Breakfast and Pro-Am offers women the opportunity to participate in “a golf and business networking experience like no other” while giving all skill sets a chance to play nine holes with a PGA Champions Tour player. The fun-filled day includes a continental breakfast with an “up close and personal” Q&A session with Sorenstam followed by a private group clinic presented by JM Lexus followed by a shotgun start with golf pros.  Registration is $750 per player, and includes Pro-Am gift package, two invites to VIP Draw Party where awards will be presented by Tiffany & Co. for the women’s back nine play, and two VIP Partners Club Tickets during the Allianz Championship tournament rounds.
“We are delighted to have Annika return this year at our popular Women’s Executive Pro-Am as she is one of the most dominant players in women’s golf, and her advice on achieving success in both business and golf was a huge hit with last year’s participants,” noted Allianz Championship Tournament Director Ryan Dillon. “In addition to a great ‘ladies day’ on the course, participants will enjoy a rare opportunity to learn from and get to know one of LPGA’s storied champions who has rewritten the LPGA and Ladies European Tour record books, won countless awards and events, and brought unprecedented attention to women’s golf.”
He added that Sorenstam was recently selected as the Vice Captain for the 2013 Solheim Cup, the biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition pitting the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour against the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET), commonly known as “the most exciting tournament in Women’s golf” and Sorenstam’s personal favorite.
Sorenstam’s success has changed how women’s golf is played, covered and viewed, and in her rise to mainstream athlete and celebrity, she has had a positive impact on all women’s sports. She was born in Stockholm, Sweden on October 9, 1970 and began playing golf at the age of 12; her sister Charlotte also plays on the LPGA Tour.
Dillon said he expects with Sorenstam again being part of the tournament’s experience this year and only 36 openings available, this year’s Women’s Executive Pro-Am will sell out quickly and encourages those interested to register early. To purchase foursomes and individual tickets by January 6th, contact Anthony Greco at agreco@allianzchampionship.com or 561-241-GOLF (4653).
The week-long seventh annual Allianz Championship schedule of events includes three days of championship play from Friday through Sunday, Feb. 8-10, 2013 plus the third annual Women’s Executive Pro-Am on Tuesday, Feb. 5th with an Executive Pro-Am Pairings Party that evening; two days of Executive Pro-Am play on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 6th and 7th; a fourth annual Golf & Wine Experience as well as the popular Family Day activities held during the second day of championship play, Saturday, Feb. 9th and more.
The Allianz Championship, as well as its Women’s Executive Pro-Am will be held on The Old Course at Broken Sound Club, located at 1401 NW 51st Street, (Yamato Road), Boca Raton, FL 33431.

Construction Begins On Bridge Hotel Waterfront Promenade Serving Up The Only Public “Dock To Dine” Experience In Boca Raton



BOCA RATON, FL (November 26, 2012) –In just a little more than three months since its acquisition, AWH Partners, LLC and The Lane Organization LLC jointly announce that construction on the pre-approved much awaited 270-foot wraparound seawall and dock at the Boca Raton Bridge Hotel will begin Wednesday, November 28th. Dubbed its “waterfront promenade”, the new dock-to-dine amenity will offer guests the opportunity to arrive by boat for the only public“on-the-water” dining in Boca Raton served up at The Bridge Hotel’s popular WaterColors restaurant.
                                                                                                                                     
The dock expansion and enhancement that will flank the property’s entire Lake Boca perimeter marks the initial phase of the Bridge Hotel’s major “reinvention” redevelopment plan. The subsequent transformation phase, anticipated to begin in late spring/early summer, will be much more comprehensive with the introduction of entirely new hospitality and dining concepts, further expansion waterfront amenities, and extensive renovations of guestrooms, restaurants and public spaces.

The Bridge Hotel remains one of Boca’s most notable, operating as a traditional hotel, as new ownership repositions and reinvents it to be more relevant and exciting to meet the desires and needs of today’s discerning vacationers as well as social and business guests. Led by a seasoned team of designers and consultants the hotel is being completely transformed into a premier South Florida experience with its own newly positioned distinctive signature in the destination.

Construction Is Prelude To What Is In Store
“Construction on the new seawall and dock is just the first step in our comprehensive transformation of the Bridge Hotel, serving as a prelude to what is in store for guests and the community in upcoming phases planned to position the property to luxury boutique hotel four-star status,” noted Russ Flicker, managing partner of AWH Partners, LLC., a joint venture between August Group Ventures, LLC and Winston Harton Holdings, LLC, in Partnership with The Lane Organization. “The best is yet to come.”

AWH Partners, LLC identifies and acquires outstanding assets in key locations that require operational and physical repositioning to achieve their highest and best use. The Bridge is an established community icon in an enviable locale with a longtime history serving as the locals’ favorite “guesthouse” for visiting friends, family, and colleagues. The acquisition afforded the partnership the opportunity to return to South Florida to expand its presence add another “hotel repositioning success story” to its burgeoning portfolio.

Dining Guest Comfort A Priority During Daytime-Only Dock Construction
For guest comfort while the daytime-only dock construction is in progress from Monday through Friday, a la carte breakfast and lunch traditionally served at WaterColors will be relocated to Carmen’s at the Top of the Bridge, with happy hour and dinner resuming at WaterColors from 4:30 p.m.-11 p.m.
