The Proper Affair raises $140,000 for Achievement Centers


BOCA RATON, FL – Fashion, fun and flair highlighted the glamorous 4th Annual Proper Affair which raised a record $140,000 in support of the Achievement Centers for Children & Families, a non-profit agency that supports over 700 low-income and at-risk children and families in Delray. In unprecedented style, Boston Proper and the Achievement Centers joined together to host an evening that was truly an affair to remember. “What a spectacular evening! The turnout was inspiring. It was great to see so many people coming together to make a difference for those in need locally. One of the reasons we love the Proper Affair is because we get to see firsthand the lives we touch,” said Sheryl Clark, President of Boston Proper. The Boca Resort’s Great Hall was transformed into an ultra-chic, hip space where 325 guests gathered to enjoy upbeat music, delectable food and great fun! Attendees posed along the red-carpet for photo ops, vied for high-end silent auction, and “got on the bus.” New this year, guests were able to purchase “pieces” of a virtual bus in support of a much- needed school bus for the Center. The highlight of the evening was an electric runway show featuring the hottest trends of the season – generously donated by Boston Proper. Eleven Spa in Delray graciously donated their services to style the models’ hair and make-up. Models then graced the runway presenting head-to-toe ensembles which were auctioned to the highest bidder near the conclusion of the event.

Nancy Hurd, CEO of the Achievement Centers commented, “Without contentious corporate citizens like Boston Proper we would not be able to help the hundreds of families that we do. The impact that we can make when we all work together is truly amazing.”
