Annual Boca Raton Mayors Ball Moves Locations


The third annual Boca Raton Mayors Ball returns on Oct. 14 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.

The event, presented by Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton, will recognize elected officials and visionaries who exemplify Rotary International’s motto, ‘Service Above Self.’

The black tie dinner and dance gala will feature a red carpet arrival and cocktail reception followed by dinner set against city-themed decor curated by the Boca Raton Historical Society and Museum.

This year the event will recognize entrepreneur and philanthropist Bobby Campbell, Florida Atlantic University and Kaufman Lyn Construction.

Chairs of the event said after the first two balls sold out, they decided to move the event to the resort to accommodate more attendees.

Funds raised will fulfill grant requests approved through Rotary Club Downtown Boca’s formal grant application program managed to be unveiled in October that will be open to all Boca Raton-based nonprofits with needs for health and wellness services and programming.

Proceeds from last year’s event helped 22 Boca nonprofits and Rotary International’s Polio Plus Program to help globally eradicate polio and other diseases
