This year’s Honor Your Doctor luncheon is chaired by Dr. Ronald Rubin and Robin Trompeter. Honorary Chairs are Dr. Michael. Dennis, Elaine Wold and Mitch Feldman and the Honorary Physician Advisor is Dr. Marc Taub. The fundraiser was the brainchild of Helen M. Babione, who as an active member of the GFWC Boca Raton Woman’s Club who has produced and sponsored the Honor Your Doctor Luncheon for the last 15 years. The Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton partnered with the GFWC last year who have now turned the stewardship of this annual event over to the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton members who are passionate about raising funds to support the medical community in Boca Raton. “This special event gives our community a much-needed opportunity to raise funds for deserving students to attend our local universities, and at the same time, recognize the efforts of our growing medical community,” said co-chair Robin Trompeter. “The key to encouraging these students to remain in practice here in South Florida is to have them engaged in the community early on and that is the mission of Honor Your Doctor.” “As a Physician, founding board member of the FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and a Rotarian, I am very proud that we are recognizing the outstanding contributions that Doctors in our community provide,” added Rotarian and Honor Your Doctor co-chair Dr. Ron Rubin.
