Chamber events high-profiling Boca’s charities are back on track. A\
After a year off, Boca Chamber has started arranging Boca Festival Days during August. The 30-plus-year tradition pairs profits with nonprofits to sponsor a fundraiser.
“It just costs $300, and the nonprofit keeps all the proceeds,” explains Alison Miuccio, membership development manager.
The Chamber decided now is the right time for a Festival Days comeback. “The vaccine being so readily available, and so many people want to get out and do something, we thought it was time to bring it back,” Miuccio said.
“There will not be as many events as in the past. Normally there are about 28 events, including our Wine & Jazz. We are still at the beginning stages of planning, but if I had to guess, about a dozen events,” she added.
What does she have so far? Margarita Monday on Aug. 16 at Rocco’s Tacos in the Boca Center. “We look forward to partnering for the eighth year with KidSafe Foundation,” said Minuteman Press of Boca Raton co-owner Lise Orr.
Boca’s Got Talent will benefit the Child Rescue Coalition for the first time, said Confident Bookkeeping Services LLC owner Laureen Pannullo. That event will be held on Aug. 18 at Crazy Uncle Mike’s. No further details like times or ticket prices available yet.
“A lot of people are interested, but haven’t committed to a date,” Miiuccuccio added.
