Former Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton President Alan Kaye chairs this year’s Honor Your Doctor luncheon
With the Honorary Chair Christine Lynn, Honorary Advisors are Helen Babione and Janice Williams and Honorary Physician Advisor; “Doctor of Distinction” for 2014, Dr. Theodore Raptis.
“We are so pleased that the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton has again raised the bar for this very special event. The “Honor Your Doctor Luncheon” has become an annual tradition to celebrate for many of Boca’s community leaders, Medical community and philanthropists” said Event Chair, Alan Kaye. “This was the brainchild of Helen Babione 17 years ago when she was President of the GFWC Boca Raton Woman’s Club. The luncheon raises funds for deserving students to attend our local universities, and at the same time, recognize the efforts of our growing medical community and encourages these students to remain in practice here in South Florida by engaging them from the very beginning in the community.”
This years “Honor Your Doctor” luncheon committee includes; Carole Boucard, Lewis Fogel, Deborah Freudenberg, Ingrid Fulmer, Gloria Hosh, Jon Kaye, Brian Long, Bill Miller, Kari Oeltjen, Linda Petrakis, Dr. Ron Rubin, Robin Trompeter and Joan Weidenfeld.
