         Presented in the same celebratory tradition set by the iconic cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale
      and Palm Beach, the fourth annual Boca Raton Mayors Ball presented by Rotary Club Downtown
      Boca Raton is set for Saturday, Nov. 17, at the Royal Palm Yacht Club. Celebrating the City of
      Boca Raton’s visionaries past and present who have elevated the community, and elected officials
      who exemplify Rotary International’s motto, “Service Above Self,” the black-tie dinner/dance
      gala event will raise funds to support health and wellness needs of Boca Raton nonprofits.
         The evening will feature a red carpet arrival and cocktail reception, followed by a grand
      epicurean experience created by Royal Palm Yacht Club Executive Chef Joseph DiPrima, set
      amidst City-themed décor curated by the Boca Raton Historical Society and Museum, the live
      music of the Steve Chase Band, and the presentation of the George Long Awards – named for
      the City’s first appointed mayor in 1924.
         According to Boca Raton Mayors Ball co-chairs and Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton
      members Arlene Herson and Rick Howard, and Honorary Chair Bobby Campbell (who was
      a 2017 George Long Award recipient), this year’s event honors the following, who have each
      championed the tradition of bringing indelible visionary ideas and transformation to Boca:
