02/24/2011 - By Palm Beach, FL

On Feb. 24, Howard and Michele Kessler were honored at the Palm Beach Dinner Presented by Trafalgar Capital Advisors for their philanthropic efforts supporting a wide range of causes including cancer research and treatment.

The annual event, which was hosted by Mrs. Lourdes Fanjul, Mrs. Talbott Maxey and Mr. Thomas C. Quick, benefited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The dinner featured St. Jude doctors, researchers and leaders highlighting the hospital’s groundbreaking research and lifesaving care to combat pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases, including the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital – Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project.

“The Palm Beach dinner is a great way to educate the Palm Beach community about the cutting edge research and treatment being done at St. Jude,” said Bob Press, founding partner and CIO of Trafalgar Capital Advisors. “Trafalgar Capital Advisors is proud to sponsor this event and raise funds to help find cures and save children fighting cancer and other catastrophic diseases.”

The Kesslers are active philanthropists in Palm Beach County, Fla., supporting a wide range of causes and serving on several nonprofit boards. Their charitable involvement spans beyond Florida with both national and international scope, garnering recognition and several awards over the years.
