(PRESS RELEASE)_Boca Raton, FL (April 26, 2023) – Supporters of Boca Helping Hands (BHH) passed go at the sold-out 2023 MONOPOLY® Event & Casino Night on April 15 at The Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club, Boca Raton. Guests enjoyed music, auctions, casino gaming, cocktails, dinner, and, of course, the crowning of this year’s MONOPOLY® champion, Alain Troadec. This year’s event was a “Glitz & Glam” spectacular, with silver accents and sparkle to celebrate the organization’s 25th anniversary.
Based on the comments heard from many of those who attended, this was the “best MONOPOLY® event ever”. The venue was spectacularly decorated in MONOPOLY®-themed décor, including a MONOPOLY® board dance floor.
The success of the 2023 Monopoly Event & Casino Night was largely due to the hard work of a new event committee led by event co-chairs Rochelle LeCavalier and Zoe Lanham. Committee members included Aisha Ali, Yoli Brennan, Susan Brockway, Melanie De Vito, Robin Deyo, David Dweck, Justin Ely, Gloria Hosh, Reagan Heidelberg, Olivia Hollaus, Christina Karas, Mark Malis, Holly Meehan, Janean Mileusnic, Lauren Muñoz, Yvette Palermo, Jesse Price, Linda Speilman, Anthea Walker and Yasmine Zyne-Coleman.
Boca Helping Hands’ Board President Gary Peters, a two-time National MONOPOLY® Champion, served as the MONOPOLY® tournament mediator. “This event is always so much fun and so unique,” Peters said. “Think about how you loved Monopoly as a kid. This annual event is a way to enjoy the game and give back to our community. If you missed it this year, we hope you will join us next year.”
Proceeds from the event will help assist 27,000 people in the South Florida community through BHH’s various programs, including hunger relief, job training, healthcare, emergency financial assistance, childcare, and weekend meals for Palm Beach County schoolchildren.
