      BallenIsles Charities Foundation Provides Funding To The

      Palm Beach Gardens Police And Fire Rescue Foundation

        BallenIsles Charities Foundation has again set a fundraising record. During their 10-year
      anniversary, the foundation awarded grants of $800,000 to 46 local organizations and over
      $4.6 million since inception. Who could have predicted that? This year’s total includes the
      funding of a special impact grant to the PBG Police and Fire Rescue Foundation’s emergency
      financial assistance fund of $30,000 which helps our first responders and their families.
        The Palm Beach Gardens Police and Fire Rescue Foundation has received funding from
      the BallenIsles Charities Foundation to establish an emergency financial assistance fund
      for police and fire rescue personnel. The $30,000 donation was provided to support Palm
      Beach Gardens first responders in times of extraordinary financial need.
        “This multiyear commitment by the BallenIsles Charities Foundation has allowed us to
      broaden our mission. It allows our Police and Fire Rescue Foundation to reach the next level

      Old Bags Luncheon : There’s No Going ‘Bag’ Now!

        What began as an uncertain, treacherous year for fundraising, turned into a “think
      outside the box” reimagined success! The question was never if there would be an Old Bags
      Luncheon , it was how. The creative minds at Center for Family Services took a leap of
      faith in their community and delivered something so special and so unique; the consensus
      was astounding.
        The focus of the Center’s 60th Anniversary, Old Bags Luncheon Diamond Jubilee, was
      to raise much-needed funds to continue serving the rising needs of mental health services
      in Palm Beach County. The event also gave back to the community; a community that has,
      for so many years, supported the Old Bags Luncheon with silent auction donations and
      generous sponsorships. Due to the reimagined design, over 60 businesses on Worth Avenue
      partnered with Center for Family Services to create an event unlike any other held on Palm
      Beach Island before.
                                                                                  Laura Moore Tanne, Shawn  Jana Angel,  Stephanie
