      Fourth Annual Boca Raton Mayors Ball Honors Visionaries

       Raises More Than $430,000 For Boca Nonprofits

          To celebrate the City’s long, rich history and legacy, more than 350 guests dined and danced
       the night away at the Fourth Annual Boca Raton Mayors Ball presented by the Rotary Club
       Downtown Boca Raton (RCDBR) with presenting sponsor Office Depot. The Club’s black-tie
       gala recognized the elected officials who have exemplified Rotary International’s motto, “Service
       Above Self,” and honored three visionaries who have elevated the community, all while raising
       more than $430,000 for the Club’s “Service Above Self” Grant Program. Proceeds from the
       Club’s previous three Mayors Balls have benefited more than 25-plus organizations, granting
       funds to support the health and wellness needs of the nonprofits serving Boca Raton and Rotary
       International’s program to eradicate polio.
          Guests arrived to a display of a brand-new Rolls Royce and McLaren automobiles from the
       event’s valet sponsor, Excell Auto, as they made their way down a 50-foot red carpet, having their
       photos taken on the way to a cocktail reception and silent auction on the outside patio overlooking
       the Royal Palm Yacht Club Marina. Once again, the event drew an early sell-out house of Boca
       Raton’s “Who’s Who” of civic, business, tourism, community and philanthropic stakeholders and
       visionaries – past and present – spanning more than five decades of commitment and contributions.   Boca Raton Mayors (from left): Scott Singer (Current 2018) and Bella Singer, John Whelchel
