Boca Raton, FL — 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, which included brunch, golf, a cocktail reception and an awards dinner, took place on Monday, April 4th at Boca West Country Club attracting over 400 golfers and 550 dinner attendees.

Since its inception in 2010, the Foundation has granted more than $15 million for projects that serve at-risk youth and, this year, the organization brought in the most money ever raised in a single year, $1.5 million.

The Jay DiPietro Low Gross Award, which went to the best scoring foursome, was presented to Alex Lee, Richard Do, David Lukes and Alen Jsu, the team from Sky Alpha Asset Advisors.

The top four charity winners were Rotary Club of Boca Raton, Place of Hope, Sweet Dream Makers and Unicorn Children’s Foundation.

Funds raised will benefit more than 30 participating local children’s charities.  Charities vied for a portion of the $100,000 awarded during the tournament with each charity receiving between $3,500 and $10,000, depending on its team’s placement.

“The feedback from our sold-out event was tremendous,” said Richard Zenker, Chairman of Boca West Children’s Foundation.  “This plays such a big role in our ability to help children in need who live in our community.  We are looking forward to our 11th Annual Golf Challenge on March 27, 2023!”


An annual golf challenge favorite, the duck drop, featured 500 plastic yellow ducks dropped from a crane for a chance to win $2500. The winner was John Joyner.
