Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. March 20, 2019
Forty-six not-for-profit and civic organizations serving the local community have received financial grants totaling a record $745,000 from the BallenIsles Charities Foundation during its 2019 Grants Awards Ceremony at BallenIsles Country Club on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
“The record-setting amount has brought the cumulative grants awarded by the Foundation to more than $3 million over the 8 years since our formation with the mission of “Making a Difference” in the local community,” BallenIsles Charities Foundation President Mark Freeman said.
“Speaking during the Ceremony at Circle 100, one of the newest additions to the six dining venues at BallenIsles, Mr. Freeman said: “With the completion of the newly expanded BallenIsles Clubhouse, our fundraising events attracted sold out support. Each of the deserving organizations we carefully vetted and selected to receive a financial grant, undertakes extraordinary local community programs. The record funds raised are a credit to the generosity of BallenIsles members and residents, the terrific local businesses and Corporate Sponsors, the tireless contributions of all our volunteers, along with the assistance we received from the management of the Country Club and the Community Association. Together we’re making a difference!”
This year’s grants also include scheduled payments on a Multi-Year Impact grant to Feed the Hungry Pantry for a refrigerated truck that will positively impact the lives of thousands of families who otherwise might go hungry.
