Palm Beach Travel, a South Florida based boutique travel agency specializing in exclusive trips and experiences, saw firsthand the devastation that took place following the hurricanes this past season and wanted to do something to help. Their plan? To co-host a special fundraiser to help those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Irma.
Palm Beach Travel, along with co-hosts British Virgin Island Tourism, Lamborghini, The Moorings and British Virgin Island Tourism, invites guests to enjoy an elegant evening beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (3667 120th Ave S, Wellington, FL.). The fundraiser will aid efforts by the British Virgin Islands (BVI) Tourism Board to re-build the islands and restore its tourism industry, which provides employment and stability to BVI residents.
“As the American Express Travel Insider for the British Virgin Islands, the islands were like a second home to me,” shared Annie Davis, president of Palm Beach Travel. “I know the people of the islands thrive on tourism. These hurricanes were devastating. I, along with my team, want to do everything possible to help those on the islands get back on their feet so they can reopen soon and continue to thrive.”
Funds raised at the event will benefit the British Virgin Islands Recovery Fund, which actively raises monies to rebuild entire structures and homes, some of which have been diminished to mere foundations. Hurricane Irma struck BVI on September 6, 2017, contributing to one of the most damaging hurricane seasons on record.

The festive event will feature automobiles, including the exclusive opportunity to win exclusive uses, from Lamborghini and auction items from Peter Island Resort, including a one-week stay at Rosewood Little Dix, a one-week Iceland vacation, a two-night stay at Eau Palm Beach and more.
Tucker Thompson, the Public Host of the 35th America’s Cup and TV announcer of the 34th Cup in San Francisco, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. A veteran sailing commentator, Thompson has hosted more than 1,500 sailing shows on T2PTV and live television, and covered the Cup on TV since 2007 in Valencia, Spain.
