Junior League of Boca Raton Hosted “Flavors” Culinary Event 9th Annual Food and Wine Extravaganza

The Junior League of Boca Raton was proud to host the 9th Annual “Flavors” event. Known locally as THE food and wine extravaganza, this year’s event included over 30 participating restaurants, dynamic live performances by Michael Israel as well as members of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio, and a fashion show from Saks Fifth Avenue that gave an insider’s look to their upcoming Spring 2018 fashion line. Round The Town was on hand to provide local Boca attendees with complimentary, and safe, event transportation. A live auction offered patrons a chance to bid on luxury items such as delicious dinners and wine tastings at acclaimed restaurants, as well as sports tickets, and high-end jewelry.

Thom and Joyce DeVita and Al and Joni Goldberg served as the event’s honorary chairs. Mrs. DeVita was the Junior League of Boca Raton’s 2017 “Woman Volunteer of the Year” winner, honored for her outstanding work with The Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum, while Mr. and Mrs. Goldberg are owners of Gourmet Adventures, a full-service Catering Company, serving South Florida for 16 years.  Karli Vazquez-Mendez, a member of the Junior League of Boca Raton since 2014, served as this year’s “Flavors” committee chair and brought a sophisticated sense of flair to the event. Each have a true passion for creating great food for any event and brought that passion to “Flavors.” Hosted at the beautiful Addison venue in downtown Boca Raton, “Flavors” was attended by more than 740 patrons. The proceeds from the event will directly fund a number of Junior League community projects that benefit the immediate Boca Raton area including other non-profit support, promoting children’s welfare, eliminating hunger, and our community diaper bank.

“Flavors has absolutely become one of the most highly-anticipated foodie events in South Florida, and it gets better every year,” shared Chef Patrick Duffy, Executive Chef at The Addison. “The proceeds of the “Flavors” event will continue to fund our mission and our work within the issues of hunger, child welfare and nonprofit support,” said Renata Sans de Negri, Junior League of Boca Raton President. We look forward to hosting another tasty “Flavors” event in 2019!
