27 Mar Boca West Children’s Foundation Hosts 10th Annual Golf Challenge on April 4
Children’s charities throughout Palm Beach County will be granted funds raised from the Boca West Children’s Foundation (BWCF) 10th Anniversary $100,000 Golf Challenge. The daylong event, including brunch, golf, a cocktail reception and dinner, takes place on Monday, April 4 at Boca West Country Club.
More than 500 golfers will have the opportunity to play on courses that have been ranked among the best in the world, alongside St. Andrews, Pine Valley, Pebble Beach and Pinehurst. The Golf Challenge is expected to sell out.
The cost per golfer is $750 with funds benefitting more than 30 participating local children’s charities. Charities will vie for a portion of the $100,000 awarded during the tournament. Each charity will receive between $2,000 and $10,000, depending on its team’s placement. Over the past 12 years, The Foundation has granted more than $14 million for projects that serve at-risk youth.
“The golf challenge is an annual fundraiser and so many people from the community participate in our sh
ared effort to support local kids,” said Pamela Weinroth, Executive Director of Boca West Children’s Foundation. “We expect, once again, that the event will sell out. Non-golfers can support the effort and join in the fun by attending the cocktail reception and dinner.”
The event takes place at Boca West Country Club, 20583 Boca West Drive, Boca Raton, and begins at 11 a.m. for registration and brunch. A duck drop will be held at 12:45 with hundreds of plastic yellow ducks being dropped from a crane for a chance to win $2500. No ducks will be hurt. Golf play begins at 1 p.m. The Golf Challenge will be followed by a 5:30 p.m. cocktail reception, dinner and live auction. Individual tickets are $750 and include one duck. Tickets to the dinner are $150. Additional individual ducks for the drop are $50.
