More than 250 guests attended the Margarita Monday fundraiser at Rocco’s Tacos in Boca Raton on Monday, Aug. 20, as part of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce’s Festival Days.
The event included light bites, drinks and a silent auction to support KidSafe Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at protecting children from sexual abuse, bullying and internet exploitation.
The organization also hosts an annual gala, Shine the Light, which will take place on May 10, 2019, at the Polo Club in Boca Raton. Emceed by Neil Saffer, the event will include a premium open bar, dinner, dancing and silent and live auctions.
Rep. Ted Deutsch will serve as Child Advocate of the Year for 2019. Last year, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman won the award for speaking out against her abuser and encouraging other young people to do the same.
