      Counties Recognized Volunteers And Supporters

        Amid trophies, plaques, videos, treats and fanfare, friends, supporters and volunteers
      gathered for the 2021 awards luncheon on April 28 to cheer the bonds between “bigs”
      and “littles” that steadfastly represents the nonprofit Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Palm
      Beach and Martin Counties – now in its 35th year!
        The event, taking place and generously sponsored by Bonefish Grille in Stuart, set
      the stage for smiles, laughter, hugs, and recognition for the 2021 and 2020 Big and
      Little of the Year honorees, Volunteers of the Year, and the distinguished Raising a
      Child and Raising Children awards.
        “Our volunteers and supporters remained steadfast in their commitment to our youth
      before and during the pandemic,” said Yvette Flores Acevedo, CEO Big Brothers, Big
      Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. “Their generosity empowers youth to
      graduate with a plan for their future and a mentor for their lifetime.”
        A short program, led by Yvette Flores Acevedo, CEO Big Brothers, Big Sisters
      of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, showcased winners with personal, heartfelt
                                                                                  Elysha Miskanic, Mikealo Moncayo, Luisa Espinoza, Pete Magazino, Alan Armstrong,

       Harbour Ridge Member Defeats Odds

       With Two Holes In One In One Round

      What Are Those Odds? 67 Million To 1 To Be Exact
        The average American golfer makes a hole in one once every 12,000 rounds. On
      Saturday, May 8, Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club member Patsy Harris defeated
      those odds by a long shot.
        Patsy, a member at Harbour Ridge since 2014, decided to start her day off with a
      final 18-hole round of golf for the 2021 season. Little did she know it would end in 67
      million to one odds! She teed off the River Ridge No. 10 at 8:16 a.m. and just under
      an hour later, using a five hybrid from 105 yards, she made her second-ever hole in
      one on hole No. 14. Once Patsy got to the seventh hole at 11:35 a.m., she thought it
      best to use her six hybrid from 102 yards. She swings, she … sinks it! Incredibly, she
      successfully sunk her second (and third ever) hole in one; same round, same course,
      same day!
