Rep and Simone at the Hats to the Arts event

The Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Collectors Circle hosted a fun-filled cocktail party, “Hats on to the Arts,” at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club in celebration of the arts on Thursday, May 13. This sold-out event had a wide assortment of wonderful hats—some hats were created by the guests themselves or were commissioned by local artists. Congratulations to Attorney Rep DeLoach for winning the “Most Creative” hat category with his work of (metal) art by Frank Strunk III, entitled “Flight” (2004). The mechanical bird on the metal lampshade actually flaps its wings to signify flight! Director of Marketing Simone DeLoach recently joined the Board of Directors of the Collectors Circle and Co-Chaired the event with fellow board member and estate planning client, Keith Bucklew. This “friend-raiser” raised over $11,000 toward the Collectors Circle mission to enhance and preserve the permanent collection of the MFA through the acquisition, restoration and conservation of art.
