Even if your child does not aspire to become a Financial Advisor at one of the top firms in the world, it is safe to say that money matters regardless of where life takes you and it is never too early to learn how to use it wisely. Two Palm Beach Day Academy graduates and Morgan Stanley Financial Advisors, Fritz Van der Grift and Robert Riva recognized the need for a youth finance curriculum while looking back at their institutional education. More importantly, they realized the importance of ‘socially conscience’ investing.
“I think we can all agree that the primary reason people invest is to generate returns on their investment. In following that line of reasoning, those returns provide us and our loved ones with a better quality of life. As far as I’m concerned, the next logical question, why stop there?” Riva challenged.
The after-school program, Money Matters, meets every Monday at Palm Beach Day Academy from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.. Students learn basics associated with personal budgeting, cash flow analysis, interest rates, and astute financial decision making.
“While I am truly grateful for the education at Palm Beach Day, Deerfield, and Palm Beach Atlantic, I really never learned the basics of money management,” shared Van der Grift. He went on to add, “If we believe it’s important to be good stewards of our finances, we should also be socially aware of how those finances are impacting the world around us.”
Current Palm Beach Day Academy parents who enrolled their children include Marzia Precoda and Donna Lloyd George. Both feel it is important to expose their children to the basics of finances.
“My children’s well-rounded education is a priority for me. Languages, travel and exposure are important, but knowing how to plan for the future is fundamental,” says Precoda.

The Palm Beach Fine Craft Show celebrates art of all mediums. Glass has been recognized as a luxury material for ages. The material has evolved as glass-making techniques shift with technology, and styles shift with the eras. The only constant is its beauty. Think René Lalilique, Émile Gallé, Louis Comfort Tiffany… All renowned masters of the art. The 13th annual show which takes place at the Palm Beach County Convention Center February 26-28 brings together a very talented pool of artists from all over the country for this juried Show.
Florida Native: Innovative Clearwater, Florida Glass Artist, Marlene Rose National Endowment of the Arts Grant Award Winner, Marlene Rose, utilizes a rare and relatively new technique sandcast glass to bring her visions to life. Her works are collected by the glass cognoscenti, fine-art collectors, and Hollywood A-List celebrities including John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, Catherine Bell and others. Working from her Clearwater, Florida studio, Marlene has taken the thousands year-old tradition of bronze casting and applied it to molten glass. Read more: www.marleneroseglass.com

Emerging Talent: Casey McMains Brings the Magic of Cameo Glass
The cameo glass of Vermont emerging artist, Casey McMains tends towards the surreal and symbolic weaving meaning and thoughts together. Casey prefers to work with glass because it has a memory. It is able to be transparent, translucent, and opaque simultaneously in the same piece. She explains that working in glass provides the opportunity to sculpt with light and shadow in a dynamic and intimate way that is unlike any other medium. She believes that it is magic, true alchemy in the vein of Newton and Flemmel, using all the elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit) to create something that didn’t exist until the moment of its creation. Casey is looking forward to showcasing her latest works during her first appearance at The 2016 Palm Beach Fine Craft Show. See more: www.etsy.com/shop/CaseyMcMainsGlass
