“We are so pleased that the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton has again raised the bar for this very special event. The “Honor Your Doctor Luncheon” has become an annual tradition to celebrate for many of Boca Raton’s Community leaders, Medical Community and philanthropists” said Event Co-Chair, Alan Kaye. “This event was the inspiration of Helen Babione 21 years ago when she was President of the GFWC Boca Raton Woman’s Club. The luncheon raises funds for deserving health and wellness students to attend our local universities and encourages these students to remain in practice here in South Florida by engaging them from the very beginning in the community,” said event Co-Chair Janice Williams.
