Dan's Palm Beach Power List
Dan’s Papers Publisher Victoria Schneps addresses the Dan’s Palm Beach Power List honorees.

The room was filled with joy and power as those named to the Inaugural 2023 Dan’s Palm Beach Power List were celebrated.  

The individuals selected to the Power List make Palm Beach the thriving and vibrant place it is to live, work and play. The event took place on Monday, March 6 at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

What a tremendous event,” said Staypineapple President and CEO Michelle Barnet, who was among the honorees. “I felt so privileged to be included.”

The ultimate networking event celebrated extraordinary men and women from a broad spectrum of the business and nonprofit world who were recognized for their commitment, impact and influence on the Palm Beach community.

The event was hosted by Schneps Media, publishers of Dan’s Papers Palm Beach, Dan’s Papers and Behind the Hedges. The evening included a raffle and 100% of the proceeds went to the nonprofit 2-1-1 HelpLine, which  provides immediate service for those in need within Palm Beach, Martin, St Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian River counties.

The celebration was a night to remember for all the honorees and supporters.

The honorees represent what makes Palm Beach so special and Schneps Media is proud to bring together these individuals, support one another, do business and build community.

The event would not be possible without the support of the corporate partners who included ConnectOne Bank, TD Bank, DTR Modern Galleries, Grassi Advisors & Accountants, Staypineapple hotels, JARC Florida, Love From Palm Beach, SKIN Interior Design and 2-1-1 Palm Beach & Treasure Coast.
