WELLINGTON, Fla. – MAR. 3, 2020 – To commemorate the upcoming Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party, Lugano Diamonds recently hosted 75 exclusive guests at their recently renovated Palm Beach Salon.

He focused on the importance of the welfare of equines both afar and at home during his welcome remarks. Katherine Kaneb, Vice Chair of the Brooke USA Board of Directors and Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo® & White Party Honorary Committee Chair, thanked Lugano Diamonds for their partnership with Brooke USA, which will make a huge difference in the lives of working equines and the people who depend on them worldwide.
Lugano Diamonds owner and founder Moti Ferder made a special appearance at the reception, and expressed his excitement in the brand’s involvement for the upcoming event.
“Lugano Diamonds is thrilled to be recognized as a leader in the equestrian community,” Ferder stated. “We feel it is our corporate responsibility to be stewards of giving, and to encourage others to do the same and give as well. We are passionate about the work Brooke USA is doing for working equines. As a global brand, we’ve seen the suffering of these working horses, donkeys and mules first hand. We hope our involvement not only makes a change in their lives, but also in the communities they serve.”
The Brooke USA Crystal Awards are bestowed upon outstanding champions of the organization who have gone above and beyond in support of its mission. Awards sponsor, South Florida PBS (WPBT2 and WXEL) recognized the recipients and Jeneissy Azcuy, Vice President of Communications & Marketing, presented the three awards.
