VIP Fifth Pre-Mayors Ball Reception Bedazzled With Fashion, Champagne, Wine, Dancers and More!
As an exciting prelude to the "main" event on Saturday, November 16 to be held at Boca West Country Club, the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton along with Ball Fashion Sponsor, Saks Fifth Avenue welcomed honorees, sponsors and committee members amidst magnificent ball gowns and mens formal wear displays. As live models donned in the latest couture eveningwear strolled through the celebration, attendees enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, wines, champagne and got the advance opportunity to learn about and purchase "Chance to Win" tickets for a variety of experiential opportunities. The program led by Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton President, Dr. Allen Konis capped off with high energy demos performed by Pam Casanave and Raphael Abel of the Dance with Me Dance Studio at Town Center. Some guests even got the opportunity to enjoy taking a few steps and turns on the marble dance floor with these professionals.
According to Mayors Ball Founding Co-Chair and 2019 event producer Jon Kaye with Kaye Communications, the gala will feature a special Rotary themed-colored blue carpet and gold entrance arrival, cocktail reception followed by a grand epicurean experience set amidst City-themed décor curated by the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum. The dance floor-filling Steve Chase Band will return by popular guest demand for the fifth consecutive year, with a program including dining, dancing, awards and the "Chance to Win" drawings. "Chance to Win" opportunities include a pair of custom-designed earrings by Cristino Fine Jewelry valued at $5,000, a Celebrity Cruise (your choice of itinerary) provided by Scott Grody Travel, and an original art bowl and $1,500 gift card from Sklar Furnishings.

Celebrating "Boca at its best," this Boca Raton Mayors Ball "Service Above Self" fundraiser is an opportunity to recognize individuals and organizations that through their daily community involvement and business practices promote the city of Boca Raton in a positive way and showcase Boca Raton as a great place to live, work, play and educate. Thus, the highlight of the gala will again be the annual presentation of the George Long Awards sponsored by Boca Raton Regional Hospital – named for the City's first appointed mayor in 1924. According to Boca Raton Mayors Ball Co-chairs and Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton Members Dyana Kenney and Michael Walstrom as well as Honorary Chairs Jerry and Terry Fedele (Jerry Fedele was presented with a 2018 George Long Award), this year's event honors the following who have each "championed the tradition of bringing indelible visionary ideas and transformation to Boca Raton."

· Bluegreen Vacations (For Profit Category)
· Florence Fuller Child Development Centers (Nonprofit Category)
The opportunity to support the gala's "health and wellness" mission is open to the public through the purchase of "Chance-To-Win"
