        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
      of support for our first responders,” said Irwin F. Edenzon, president of the Police and Fire
      Rescue Foundation.
