‘Under the Tuscan Moon’ benefits Boys & Girls Club of Wellington
More than 65 partygoers turned out for a cocktail and gift-gathering party for the 21st annual Dinner Dance & Auction, benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Wellington. The party was hosted by Event Co-Chairs, Dr. Vincent Apicella and Dr. MariaClara Bago at their lovely, Aero Club home on October 16. Guests that evening brought gifts that will be used in the high-end silent and the live auction. Their generous gifts included weekend getaways, sports memorabilia, spa items, a large flat screen television, and much more.
Attendees consisted of Co-Chairs, Dr. and Mrs. Montijo, event sponsors, committee members, Board members, and Boys & Girls Club supporters from the Wellington area. The partygoers mingled and were treated to Tuscanthemed appetizers and cocktails around the gorgeous pool area.
This year’s Wellington Dinner Dance, themed “Under the Tuscan Moon”, will be held December 6 at The International Polo Club. The evening will feature a silent auction and cocktail party, dinner, dancing and an exciting live auction.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the nearly 750 members of the Boys & Girls Club of Wellington located on South Shore Boulevard. The Club is a safe, supervised facility for area children ages 6 to 18, where they participate in activities such as homework assistance, tutoring, computer training, job skills development, leadership workshops, sports and fitness programs, fine arts, and performing arts classes. The Club in Wellington is one of 13 Boys & Girls Clubs serving children throughout Palm Beach County.
Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are still available. For more information on this and other Boys & Girls Clubs events and to learn more about how you can help make a difference in the life of a child, contact Sara Mariani at 561-683-3287, ext. 28 or visit www.bgcpbc.org.
