Junior League of Boca Raton 2010 VIP Pre-Event, Casino Royal, was held on Thursday, August 26th at Mercedes-Benz of Delray. The Casino Royal event had blackjack, craps-dice, roulette & more! Plus, an open bar and hors d’oeuvres from famed local restaurants including: the Melting Pot, Capital Grill, City Fish Market, and City Oyster.
Both the VIP Pre-Event and Luncheon will celebrate local women in the community and their pledge to outstanding volunteerism. In 2009 The Woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon raised over $125,000 to support the Junior League of Boca Raton’s Mission to improve the community. Over the past 22 years, the Junior League of Boca Raton has helped recognize more than 450 women volunteers in the community through this event. These women are nominated for making significant and noteworthy contributions to the lives of children, families, individuals and seniors within our community.
This year the prestigious WVOY luncheon will recognize more than 30 nominees from various non-profit organizations throughout Palm Beach County for their dedication and expertise as volunteers. The 23nd annual Woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon event will be held Friday, October 8, 2010 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
