‘Southern Exposure’ Highlights BallenIsles Charities Foundation Awards To Local Charities


Keith Bryer, deputy chief of operation, and James Ippolito, division chief-emergency medical services Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue, receive a check from BallenIsles Charities Foundation President Fred Corrado.

32 area organizations with extraordinary local community programs were awarded financial Grants totaling a record $285,000 by the BallenIsles Charities Foundation last month during a charity reception at BallenIsles Country Club. The “Helping to Make a Difference” financial Grant awards brings the Foundation’s total charitable contributions to more than half-a-million dollars since its formation in 2011 by residents and members of BallenIsles Country Club.

“There are many worthwhile organizations in Palm Beach County that accomplish great things on very limited resources. The kind generosity of BallenIsles residents and local businesses, working together as a community, continues to make it possible for us to help those who are helping others so unselfishly,” said BallenIsles Charities Foundation President Fred Corrado.
