Child Rescue Coalition raises $46,000 during golf tournament

Child Rescue Coalition’s (CRC) Second Annual Coalition Cup Charity Golf Tournament brought in $46,000 for the Boca Raton nonprofit.

More than 70 golfers teed-up at Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach on Nov. 2 to raise money to support the Coalition’s mission to rescue children from sexual abuse by building technology for law enforcement to track, arrest, and prosecute child predators.

Golfers and event attendees who attended in support of the law enforcement community enjoyed a BBQ buffet dinner and cocktails while bidding on silent auction items including luxury gifts, dinners and getaways. This year’s top foursome was the Fraternal Order of Police of Fort Lauderdale. Team members Luan Malushi, Paul Maniates, Dominic Zeoli and Jeff Hall all received commemorative crystal awards.

CRC’s Child Protection System, used free of charge by more than 11,000 law enforcement officials in 50 states and 90 countries, has been instrumental in helping to put an end to child sexual abuse. Child Rescue Coalition has assisted in the arrest of nearly 11,000 child predators and the rescues of over 2,500 abused children in the last five years.

Boca nonprofits receive grants from Quantum Foundation

Four Boca Raton nonprofits were recipients of grants from the Quantum Foundation.

During the eighth annual Quantum in the Community initiative, 94 organizations throughout Palm Beach County received grants totaling $750,000.

In Boca, Sweet Dream Makers, The Jacob Zweig Foundation, HOME Boca and SafeSun were grant recipients.

“Quantum Foundation is a health foundation,” said Donna Mulholland, Quantum Foundation board chair. “We always keep our focus on health because that’s what we were founded to do. But this annual campaign acknowledges that if we don’t meet people’s basic needs, it’s not possible for them to stay healthy. So, in addition to our regular grants, every year we allocate funds for those nonprofits that meet basic needs like food, shelter, clothing and transport for the residents of Palm Beach County.”
