HE grand opening of Tsunami, an Asian fusion-style restaurant and lounge, in Palm Beach, Florida, doubled as a kick-off for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County spring dinner dance, “Barefoot On The Beach,” set for March 28 at The Breakers.

The dance chairs and supporters Merrill Duemler-Debbs, Wilder Regalbuto, Maureen Whalen, Wally & Betsy Turner, Reid and Suzy Boren, Craig Mancuso and Vivianne Hall toasted Tsunami owners Frank Cilione and Shamin Abas and their chef Brian Kenny with champagne Veuve Clicquot.

Anand Jon, the internationally acclaimed designer, debuted his cruise line with a fun fashion show.

Guests included Andrea Stark, Allman Brothers Band’s Butch Trucks with his wife Melinda; lighting guru Bentley Meeker; Broadway producer Terry Allen Kramer with her nephew Charlie Allen; hand bag designer Lana Marks; Anheuser-Busch heiress Pamela O’Connor; Wally Findlay Gallery’s new Palm Beach director of communications Whitney Tower and his fiancée, interior decorator, Dana Dodds; and Ben Vereen’s son Benji Vereen.

Others enjoying the warm Florida evening, so beautifully put together by Polly Onet, were Young Friends of the Norton Museum supporters Jackie and Beau Breckenridge; Alexis Waller; Stephanie Wrightsman; Talbott and Jack Maxey; Robert Eigelberger; Ramsey Speer; head of the Palm Beach Film Festival Randi Emerman; Anne Washburn; Kirsten and Averell Fisk; Kane and Mary Baker; Rodney Dillard; jewelry designer Laura Munder; Bruce Sutka; Audrey Diamond; Thom Smith; and Maldwin Drummond.
