Elegance, Luxury & Connection: A Celebration on the Waters of West Palm Beach

The atmosphere was bubbling throughout the sunny afternoon in West Palm Beach, Florida, last week as ELYSIAN women and their guests gathered to celebrate our Summer 2023 En Blanc issue.

They gathered not only to celebrate, but to connect. The growing ELYSIAN Circle perpetually reinforces the relationships forged among these women who inspire us.

The celebration included a small but successful fundraiser, tastefully and tactfully executed, on behalf of the Center for Family Services of Palm Beach County – an incredible organization that offers individual, family, and group counseling services to help people cope with mental health challenges. 

Philanthropy is an important part of the ELYSIAN ecosystem, as well as supporting the communities that make this country unique and beautiful. That beauty is not more clearly felt like it is in Palm Beach. The turquoise ocean and bright palm trees are matched by the colorful atmosphere, the perfect backdrop that made “A Night in White” truly pop. 

Selecting one image to represent a magazine, to encompass the women featured, and to catch a reader’s eye is always a challenge. Rhonda Wilkins Fischer, who graces the cover of the Summer 2023 issue, is an icon of Palm Beach, and her story is one worthy of the center stage. Our entire En Blanc issue is filled with curated beauty and expertly designed by Creator-in-Chief Ryan Stalvey with a white aesthetic that runs throughout.

“With every event, the ELYSIAN Circle expands. With every conversation, the relationships among the women who inspire us deepen. It is in these precious moments of togetherness one can witness the ELYSIAN ecosystem truly taking on a life of its own,” ELYSIAN Publisher Karen Floyd said. “The night wouldn’t have been possible without our sponsors — Discover SC and DRC Ventures — the support of our friends, Dr. Christina Rahm and her team, Rhonda Wilkins Fischer, and the scores of other women who contributed to the success of A Night in White.”

The night sparkled like the conversation, bringing together women from different walks of life who share a commitment to honoring the women who inspire us. 

As the yacht left the dock in the beautiful Riviera Beach Marina in West Palm Beach, the guests were abuzz. The warm weather marked a perfect Florida day, a gentle breeze in the air as the sound of electric violins filled the air with a fun twist on classical music. 

Aboard the luxury 137-foot yacht Caprice, the attendees — all garbed in white — established a uniform and elegant aesthetic, creating a beautiful and visually striking scene: everyone looked amazing. Guests included S.C. Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette and Bissell Pet Foundation founder Cathy Bissell.

ELYSIAN continues creating sophisticated and memorable events, providing opportunities for guests to dress up and enjoy an elegant evening with friends. As we traveled the stunning Intercoastal Waterway, the entire Night in White distinguished itself as truly a one-of-a-kind event.
