Boca West Country Club
The Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton hit the jackpot with “Casino Royale” the 3rd Annual Casino Night, on Friday, October 12th at Boca West Country Club. Guests enjoyed a daring James Bond inspired evening that served up equal parts of shaken or stirred fun for all while raising more than $55,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boca Raton. Supporters played their lucky cards, sipped specialty Martini’s sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka , were dazzled by the Lady Luck jewel raffle sponsored by Tiffany & Co. all while enjoying sumptuous buffets, gourmet goodies and sweets prepared by the world-class chefs of Boca West County Club.
Chairing the event were Bill and Elaine Morris, as honorary chairmen, and Zak N. Odhwani, as event chairman. “This event has proved significant to furthering our Club program needs, and our ability to better serve the children of Boca. More than 60% of the children served by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boca Raton come from homes with incomes of less than $29,999-- the need is great and this will have a positive impact on their futures.” said honorary chairmen and Club board member, Elaine Morris.
