Delray Beach resident Kari Shipley can always be found doing something for others. Whether making a special dinner for a friend who is going through chemotherapy, or finding volunteers for myriad local events, she can always be counted on for much-needed help. In addition to being the “family manager” of the never-quiet Shipley household, Kari is involved with several not-for-profit organizations in the community. The Boys & Girls Club of Delray Beach, The Achievement Center for Children & Families, Bethesda Memorial Hospital, and First Presbyterian Church of Delray Beach are just a few organizations that can thank Kari for her extraordinary dedication and commitment of time. Through her committee work, she has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars that find their way to needy children and families in the Delray Beach area.
Kari Shipley was nominated by Stephanie Shipley to be a Coastal Star. “She is an amazing daughter, sister, wife, mother and volunteer, and I am very lucky to have her not only as a stepmother, but also as a friend.”
