Its Mediterranean-style villas, with their barrel-tiled roofs and sweeping ocean vistas, may rest at sea level or slightly above, but the view from their wind-swept balconies is decidedly Olympian. Looking back, across Lake Worth and toward the far-less-exclusive municipality of West Palm, the inhabitants of Palm Beach see a Florida that is far poorer, far more ethnically diverse and far more ravaged by a howling recession than anything they know or, more tellingly, care to know. Against this backdrop, the gentry of Palm Beach brook no apology for their ferocious addictions to conspicuous consumption, grand living and high times. Moreover, they feel no threat none whatsoever to their peculiar status from other well-known areas of the state. South Beach is hipper, Orlando more prized as a tourist destination, and the beaches of the Gulf Coast more idyllic, but Palm Beach is without peer in the realm of pure snob appeal.

But, if you ask me, Palm Beach is not quite as highfalutin as it used to be. Doris Reynolds, Naples City Historian, author and longtime residentAs a result of the 2009 Naples Winter Wine Festival, 26 Collier County childrens charities received nearly $7 million in grants. Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the wine festival, presented checks to the deserving nonprofit organizations last week during a ceremony at Mediterra. These checks will help children in ways both big and small, said Connie Galloway, co-chair of this years festival with her husband, Tom Galloway. Children will have a safe haven from abusive homes; early literacy training for a good start in school; vision screenings and eyeglasses needed to do schoolwork; and, for many, their very first books to foster reading skills. This years largest grants were $1 million each for Collier Countys Boys & Girls Club (to fund summer programming for 1,250 children in Naples and Immokalee who otherwise would have no place to go) and Guadalupe Center (to double the capacity to 270 children ages newborn to 4 years old who receive day care and early education at the center, and to fund after-school programs at several Immokalee elementary schools). One agency, the Able Academy, received an NCEF grant for the first time. The academy, which provides behavioral and social therapies and academic instruction to children with autism, received $125,000. The February festival raised more than $5 million, with all proceeds allocated for distribution in 2009. However, NCEF trustees determined that grant applicants needs surpassed the SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE WINEFEST, A8 & 9 $7 million handed out to childrens charities NAPLES AND PALM BEACH:CITADELS OF MANNERS AND MONEYCOURTESY PHOTODream Team members join soloist Sam Bostic during a Meet the Kids Day presentationNAPLES AND PALM BEACH:CITADELS OF MANNERS AND MONEY B a c k t o s c h h h h o o o l l l l l l
