Another edition of Boca Festival Days sponsored by the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce has been committed to the history books.
This year, the Chamber paired for-profits with nonprofits at more than 20 events held during August, all designed to help charities and other assistance-providing organizations raise extra cash.
The Chamber also presented its own signature event – Wine & All That Jazz – Aug. 26 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
More than 600 guests attended the all-you-can eat and drink food and wine tasting party that featured live entertainment, raffles and an after-party in the Palm Court of the main hotel. From the sold-out VIP room where high-end delicacies were was served, to the additions of a 360-video photo booth and a full night of dancing, the program provided something for all.
Sponsored by the Boca Chamber and JM Lexus, Wine & All That Jazz featured more than 100 fine wines and food from more than 20 Boca and area restaurants.
“This event gets better and better each year,” said Sarah Pearson, the Boca Chamber’s executive vice president. “We are so pleased with the great turnout and the truly celebratory atmosphere that was felt.”
A portion of proceeds from Wine and All That Jazz supports the Chamber’s nonprofit Golden Bell Education Foundation, which provides funding and programming support to Boca Raton public schools.
