Dr. Cabrera was one of the principle sponsors of the “Stepping Up” luncheon benefiting the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County held at the Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida. More than 400 guests were entertained by guest speaker Jennifer Weiner, author of the best-selling novel “In Her Shoes.” Dr. Cabrera was presented with a plaque in appreciation of his continued support of the luncheon and the Federation. The prior year’s event themed “What Women Want”, featured actress Jane Seymour and was attended by more than 500 women.
Everyone was captivated by Ms. Seymour’s motivating and inspiring words. She dedicated her talk to her recently deceased friend, Dana Reeve, who “epitomized what women want: to be remembered as selfless and loving and tireless as she was.”
The mission of the Federation is to further the welfare of the Jewish Community of South Palm Beach County, Israel and Jews worldwide; to plan for the philanthropic, social, cultural and educational advancements of the Jewish community; and to foster and promote cooperation and understanding between the various local Jewish organizations and the community at large.
