Tim and Anje Bogott honored for Academy Prep support


Several hundred patrons filled the dinner tables inside the big tent behind the TradeWinds Island Grand on St. Pete Beach, where chief executive Tim Bogott and his wife, Anje, were honored with the Jeffrey L. Fortune Dream Maker Award for their many efforts on behalf of Academy Prep Center St. Petersburg. Presenters were board of trustees chairwoman Linda Marcelli and 2012 award recipient Carol Holland. The glass keepsake was created by artist Duncan McClellan.

It was a celebratory "Evening of Dreams: Crystal Ball" for the private middle school, where every student receives a scholarship.

Auctioneers Wade and Barbara West of the American Fundraising Foundation led the live auction, which offered numerous experiences and some artworks. School officials said the evening brought in well more than $200,000 and several significant additional pledges. Sonia Raymund promised $50,000 annually for 10 years through the foundation that bears her name.

Jill St. Louis chaired the event committee, which included Dimity Carlson, Michele DiMartino, Karen Grove, Linda Marcelli, Donna Mullinix, Kathy Nestor, Barbara Peck-Cabiac, Lindsay Petty and Lynne Stamey, along with Academy Prep's development staff, Lacey Nash Miller, Tammy Ashe, Bridget Blume and Leigh Gale.


The St. Anthony's spring gala "Love of the Arts!" drew more than 350 guests to the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, where patrons partook of food and drink on the grounds and raised $84,000 for the St. Anthony's Memory Disorder Center and cardiology services.

Delma's, the Flower Booth, won a floral competition, and entertainment included a jazz trio, a harpist and St. Petersburg Opera performer.

Among supporters attending were Mike Mikurak, chairman of the St. Anthony's board of trustees, and his wife, Elaine; Dr. Tom and Colleen Egan; Dr. Jack and Gail Pyhel; Dr. George and Judy Dyer; Maj. Gen. John and Martha Schoeppner; Dr. Paul Steven and Cathy Collins; Dr. Hudman and Charlotte Hoo; Royal and Alice Travis; Bettye Black and Beverly Pankonie.

Incoming Foundation board chairwoman Angela Rouson welcomed guests.
