Boca West Children’s Foundation Donates $2.2 Million to South Florida Charities

Boca West Children’s Foundation reached a high of $2.2 million in donations to local kids’ charities during the 2021-22 fiscal year. Among the highlights from the year was its 10th Annual Golf Challenge in April, which broke fundraising and attendance numbers, the inaugural “Walk the Walk” in December and the annual raffle program. The funds were granted to the Foundation’s more than 30 charity partners. The nonprofit organization also donated 45,000 volunteer hours as well as 180,000 diapers, along with cribs and beds for babies and other essential items for families in need.

“This is truly historic and remarkable,” Pamela Weinroth says, Executive Director of the Foundation. “This is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our board, Boca West members, and supporters in the community that we were able to raise record dollars in a year with an array of obstacles.”

Boca West Children’s Foundation donated over $16 million during its 12 years of existence, which is aimed at helping organizations that assist at-risk children and their families in Palm Beach County. 

“The funds we grant to our charity partners directly help children and families in need, from providing backpacks with food, to diapers, beds, aftercare, tutoring, summer and sports camps, counseling, college scholarships, and so much more,” Richard Zenker says, Chairman of Boca West Children’s Foundation Board. “Despite some challenges over the last couple of years, so many good and caring people came together and kept our focus on helping the children.”
