Help Boca West fund children’s charities

New donation effort for children: Boca West Children’s Foundation has launched an initiative called The Partnership to grant five $50,000 donations for programs by local children’s charities.

The community can purchase “shares” in The Partnership for $500. Each “share” represents a vote to help select the grant recipients to fund these programs:
