Philanthropy Notes: Boynton school’s golf event raises more than $14,000

St. Joseph’s Episcopal School’s parent network had its second Jaguar Classic golf tournament to raise money for upgrading and making improvements to the Boynton Beach campus.

The event brought out 80 participants to the Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach for a morning of play and then lunch.

More than $14,000 was generated.

Winners of Community Inclusion Awards named

The Unicorn Children’s Foundation-sponsored Special Needs Advisory Coalition Palm Beach County’s Community Inclusion Awards recognized several unsung heroes for their efforts at building a better and more inclusive community for special-needs children and families.

Among the winners: David Lagnado was named Center for Strategic Philanthropy & Civic Engagement Volunteer of the Year; Gulfstream Goodwill Industries won the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County Innovation & Collaboration of the Year Award; and Jay Van Vechten, director of the Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities, won as Direct Service Professional of the Year.

The Arc of Palm Beach County’s Torika Davis was named Respite Care Companion of the Year, and the award for Employee of the Year went to Stephanie Soplop, of the Boynton Beach Recreation and Parks Department.

Many other awards were given.

Milagro Center children to receive iPads

The Delray Beach Initiative’s Delray Country Hoedown raised more than $22,500 for the Milagro Center. Proceeds will be used to purchase iPads.

The country-themed party was a big hit for the 180 in attendance. After a buffet dinner, guests danced, enjoyed a pie-eating contest, tried their hand at ring toss and bid in the silent auction.

The Delray Beach Initiative has raised $180,000 for the center’s children in the last five years.
