The ballet troupe, which routinely performs its seasonal choices at the Kravis Middle in West Palm Seaside, brought in $57 million in excess of the length of the campaign, and secured an further $8 million in pledges for long run fiscal durations, MCB officers claimed. 

The fund-elevating energy was led by Kristi Jernigan, former chair of MCB’s board of trustees and onetime head of the Argonaut Cash hedge fund.
