Former ‘Bachelorette’ contestant Tyler Cameron hosts Jupiter charity gala

The ‘Bachelorette’ fan-favorite returned to his South Florida hometown to host a charity gala for a foundation named for his late mother, Andrea.

JUPITER — Celebrity TV came to the Jupiter riverfront Thursday night with a red-carpet event to benefit a foundation honoring the mother of “The Bachelor” fan favorite Tyler Cameron.

The Jupiter native, reality TV personality and model, and his brothers, Austin and Ryan, recently established a local charitable foundation in honor of their mother, Andrea Cameron, who died of a brain aneurysm Feb. 29, 2020, about six months after Tyler finished second on the ABC-TV dating and relationship program.

The Camerons hosted the Andrea C. Cameron Foundation Inaugural Gala at The Pelican Club.

Other “Bachelor” alums such as Matt James and Rachel Kirkconnell turned out to celebrate the beginning of the foundation with the Cameron family at the red-carpet event across the Loxahatchee River from Jupiter Lighthouse.

The foundation seeks to honor Andrea Cameron’s legacy by awarding high school graduates with scholarships to pursue either a college or technical education. She was known throughout northern Palm Beach County as a Realtor and a “team mom” when her sons played sports.

“The foundation sees a world in which students can achieve their full potential, forge positive relationships, and, above all else, take action to change the world,” a news release said. “Known for her generosity and charm, Andrea always went beyond the call of duty to help those in need.”

Among those spotted at the club, owned by Lessing’s Hospitality Group, were the wedding dress designer formerly known as Hayley Paige (now known as Cheval), who  attended the event with her longtime fiancé, Conrad Louis.

Also on the scene was Nick O’Leary, the former Dwyer High football and Florida State football standout who spent four seasons in the NFL. He attended the event with his wife, Mallory.
