        About The Boating & Beach Bash For People With
           The Bash was started in 2009 as an event hosted by
        the City of Boca Raton Advisory Board for People with
        Disabilities. The city relinquished the Bash in 2011
        to the management of the late Executive Director Jay
        Van Vechten and his wife, Lowell. Since then, through
        community support and donations, the couple and the
        Bash’s planning committee have pushed the event’s
        growth beyond wildest expectations. Welcoming more
        than 6,000 guests in 2020, the Bash has become the
        largest, free, wholly disability-friendly event in the
        country with a full schedule of entertainment, recreation,
        boat  rides,  beach  access,  vendors,  exhibitions,
        workshops and food in the nation. It has also become
        a Spring Break destination event in South Florida,
        drawing families from as far away as California and
        New York. Learn more at
