Mayors Ball save the date

Last year it was a quick sellout. So, this year, Nov. 16 was announced nearly six months in advance for the fifth annual Mayors Ball.

The theme will be black-tie galas Palm Beach and Miami are famous for, according to Jon Kaye, the gala founder.

Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton sponsors the event and club president Michael F. Walstrom is the co-chair with Dyana Kenney. Jerry and Terry Fedele are honorary co-chairs.

“Each year the Boca Raton Mayors Ball is a tribute to those who have made this community the enviable place to live, work, play, learn and heal,” Walstrom said in a statement.

Boca Mayor Scott Singer and former Boca mayors Susan Whelchel, Bill T. Smith and Steven Abrams are always singled out for honors at the event at Boca West Country Club.

George Long Awards, named for the city’s first mayor, will be presented Lynn University president Kevin Ross. Also receiving them will be Florence Fuller Child Development Centers and BlueGreen Vacations.

Tickets will go on sale in September. Table and sponsorships at or email
