Dear Giving Tree, Thank you so much for those beds, it was a blessing from God. My son was too big for the broken bed he has. My daughter was sleeping with me, which I was having pain in my body every day because my bed is too small for two. Thank you again. My kids and I were blessed with those beds. God Bless!

Camp Wewa - 2015
FAU Band Camp
As usual the kids who attended FAU’s Elementary Band Camp were terrific. The advanced band was especially good, these kids put their heart into learning their instruments in such short time. A special thank you goes to the FAU instructors and the music teacher from each school for going the extra mile for these kids. There was an overflow crowd of parents and friends to hear this concert. The parents are grateful that the opportunity is there and it would not be possible without The Boca West Foundation. Herb Harris - Boca West Member

You did a stellar job organizing a truly special and seemingly extremely appreciated day for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club. Rich and I really enjoyed participating and bonding with our selected child. Thanks so much for giving us and the kids a very rewarding morning, (and giving our bodies a much-needed rest from our sports activities). See you around the Club. -Jane Zenker

I just wanted to thank you for exposing us to this wonderful event and giving us the opportunity to help out. I can only say I got far more out of the morning than my new friend. Best -Steve Spaeth
Thank you from the Foundation to the Volunteers
WOW! What a great day! over 200 kids mentored by over 200 volunteers. Everything ran like clockwork. The truckers broke the world's record for putting the Harvest Baskets together, the buses were on time and the shopping was almost perfect (more cash registers next year), then to the Club to excite the kids with our Star Wars characters and all the pancakes, waffles, eggs, etc, that the kids could eat. Toy distribution, magicians, face painting and of course, holiday songs made the day just perfect.
Thanks to the immense efforts of the staff at the Boys and Girls Club. Thanks to the caring staff at Boca West. Thanks to the Directors of the Foundation. Thanks to the employees at Old Navy and most of all thanks to you, our volunteers. You saw first hand how appreciative the children were of your efforts.
See everyone next year and hopefully at the Charity Golf Challenge, Cocktail Party and THE CONCERT for the CHILDREN, starring Diana Ross.
From all of us to all of you, a very Healthy and Happy New Year.
Board of Directors, Boca West Foundation
2013 Charity Golf Challenge Testimonials
April 15, 2013
Beyond my wildest expectations when I met you in New York two and a half years ago. You are bringing the Foundation to another level which I predict will exceed all our predictions. You have shown me what an idea can achieve in a short time with your vision. I am proud to be a part of the team as we move into the next phase of the Foundation with you at the helm. Great day, great job! - Shep Forest

On behalf of all of the beneficiary charities involved in this AMAZING event, we all applaud your efforts and that of your committee. This is by far the best golf tournament that our community has ever seen and we cannot thank you enough for donating your time and most of all your heart to the children, families and individuals in our community who are the most vulnerable. You are an inspiration to us all - reminding us of the power of one person to change the world.
