(PRESS RELEASE)_Boca Raton, FL (October 11, 2021)— Wendy and Avron Fogelman, long-time supporters of Boca West Children’s Foundation (BWCF), are serving as the Grand Foundation Sponsors for the 9th Annual $100,000 Golf Challenge, happening on Monday, November 1 at Boca West Country Club.
The tournament will raise funds for more than 30 local children’s charities. The event will include brunch, golf, and an awards dinner and auction. Tickets are $650 per golfer with the majority of the funds going to participating charities. In addition, charities will vie for a portion of the $100,000 funds awarded at the conclusion of the tournament. Each charity will receive between $2,000 and $10,000, depending on its team’s placement. Over the past 11 years, The Foundation has granted more than $13 million for projects that serve at-risk youth.
“We have supported Boca West Children’s Foundation since its inception and we are delighted to help this cause once again,” said Wendy Fogelman. “Our donation will directly help children in Palm Beach County through specific grants by participating charities, providing everything from health and dental care, to cribs, diapers, and education.”
“The Fogelmans play a pivotal role in our ability to provide funding for local children’s charities,” said Pamela Weinroth, Executive Director of Boca West Children's Foundation. “Through the years, they have sponsored many of our events and have established matching programs in which they matched $2 for every $1 donated by a new supporter. These efforts have greatly helped the growth of the Foundation.”
The Golf Challenge, taking place at Boca West Country Club, 20583 Boca West Drive, Boca Raton, begins at 11 a.m. for registration and brunch with golf play at 1 p.m. The Golf Challenge will be followed by a cocktail reception, awards dinner and live auction.
