Annual fete will welcome over 700 notables and benefit the Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center

If you know anything about Palm Beach, you know that it all began when a Spanish ship loaded with 20,000 coconuts, the Providencia, ran aground off the Palm Beach coast in 1878.

One account of the shipwreck reads: “I was greeted… With a bottle of wine and a box of cigars… There were 20,000 coconuts, and they seemed like a godsend to the people. For several weeks, everyone was eating coconuts and drinking wine.”

Coconuts, cigars and wine? Sounds like a Palm Beach party to us. Now the ultimate Palm Beach party, Beach Bash Palm Beach, presented by resort-wear icon Lilly Pulitzer is back, benefiting the Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

On Dec. 28 from 8 p.m. to midnight, over 700 philanthropic influencers will descend upon The Beach Club on Palm Beach for this must-attend party of the year. Decked in their brightest Lilly fashion, guests will step back in time aboard the Providencia, and enjoy:

  • Lavish libations and bites
  • Exciting entertainment
  • Mixing with other notables
  • Anushka pop-up salon
  • Tito’s juice stand
  • Kendra Scott buried treasure jewelry pull
  • And so much more!

“We are thrilled to return for our second year partnering with resort-wear powerhouse Lilly Pulitzer for this amazing event,” said Jack E. Lighton, LMC president & CEO. “This event celebrates the iconic island life and style of Lilly Pulitzer while showcasing Palm Beach’s most treasured environmental assets: sea turtles, magnificent beaches and azure blue ocean waters.”
