Remembering Michael Bienes

Witty Fort Lauderdale based philanthropist Michael Bienes passes away

 

Philanthropist Michael Bienes sadly died of cancer on 5th April according to the Sun Sentinel.

 

New York born Mr Bienes, a multi-millionaire many times over until falling prey to Bernard Madoff’s crooked Ponzi scheme, was known for hosting lavish parties and supported everything from the Holy Cross Hospital in Broward County to the Royal Opera House in London. He was generous to a tee and known for his dry sense of humour and wit.

 

The 80-year old, whose accountancy firm, Avellino & Bienes was an early feeder fund of Bernard L. Madoff Securities, leaves a widow, Dianne. She told the Sun Sentinel:

 

Michael was never a man who would take advantage of anyone simply because he was always afraid of doing anything wrong. He loved people and valued the relationships he cultivated”.

 

Michael Bienes will be missed by many in both America and Britain. We offer our condolences to his wife and family.
