Boca Business Briefs:

We attended the grand opening of Gift of Life’s new corporate headquarters. The event was so much more than a ribbon cutting. It was filled with stories of hope, miracles and paying it forward. We’re lucky to have South Florida’s first stem cell collection center based in Boca Raton. Over the next year the company exacts to collect stem cells from over 500 donors.

 

 

 

ALINA Residences released their latest renderings.  Slated for completion the end of 2020.
