Boca Raton, FL – The Boca Raton Airport Authority (BRAA) has been awarded the Corporate Community  Service Award by the George Snow Scholarship Fund, honoring the airport’s commitment and contributions  to the students of Palm Beach County. 

The George Snow Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization that provides financial aid and resources to  students pursuing higher education in Palm Beach County, and a stated mission to “ensure that no student is  deprived of an education.”

The Corporate Community Service Award is presented to organizations and businesses that have strongly  demonstrated a similar dedication to local students, through both their independent community initiatives as  well as in support of the George Snow Scholarship Fund itself. 

The BRAA has been a long-time supporter of the Scholarship Fund and its noble mission and was grateful for  the recognition signified by the award. 

“We are honored to receive the Corporate Community Service Award from the George Snow Scholarship  Fund,” said Clara Bennett, the Executive Director of the BRAA. “We are committed to making a positive  impact on the lives of students in our community and will continue to support this wonderful organization to  help make college dreams a reality for our local students.” 

In addition to their contributions and support of the George Snow Scholarship Fund, the BRAA established  the Boca Raton Airport Scholarship in 2017, which provides financial aid to Palm Beach County students  pursuing careers in aviation and aerospace. 

The award was presented at the “2023 Rhinestone Cowboy” Ball, a country-themed fundraising event, which featured – among a variety of cowboy boots and rhinestone-studded ballroom attire – live entertainment, an auction of exclusive VIP experiences, a $5,000 raffle, and more. 

Most significantly, the successful event provided an opportunity for the community to come together and  celebrate a cause close to the hearts of many of Palm Beach residents: helping the future leaders of South  Florida achieve their academic ambitions and professional potential.
