Boca’s Ballroom Battle Stars Announced

It’s official: summer is here and so is the fourth annual dance competition to benefit the George Snow Scholarship Fund. Date: August 19. Place: Boca Raton Resort & Club. Fun Factor: Off the charts.

We love this event—which is why we are one of the sponsors. But the great part is seeing our community leaders dressed up and stepping out, bravely doing their part to rack up dollars for the scholarship fund, and win the coveted mirror ball trophy. I mean, who can forget Burt Rapoport and his magic cape? Or John Mulhall as James Bond? Jan Savarick as a femme fatale?
