Do you know someone who made Boca better and deserves recognition?
You can nominate people or an organization to be honored at the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum’s annual Walk of Recognition Ceremony.
Tickets are on sale for the induction and celebration from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 6 at The Addison, 2 E. Camino Real. Deadline for applications for nominees is Sept. 13.
Tickets are $85 per person by calling the society 561-395-6766, ext.101, or at www.bocahistory.org. Tickets may also be purchased at society headquarters in Town Hall, 71 N. Federal Highway, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Started in 1997, the Walk of Recognition award has been given to 94 members of the community. Last year’s inductees were Rita Thrasher, Dr. Dick Reed and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
Each name is inscribed in a black granite plaque or on the Wall of Honor on the monument beneath the Addison Mizner statue on Royal Palm Place. The plaques are underwritten by Marta Batmasian. She and her husband Jim sponsor the event. Committee co-chairs are Marta Batmasian and Joyce DeVita.
The reception and induction ceremony at The Addison are free for past inductees. After the ceremony and presentation of medallions and desk-top awards, the honorees and ticket holders have a dinner-by-the-bite, beverages, entertainment and dancing under the stars in The Addison courtyard.
“The Walk of Recognition is my favorite event because we have the opportunity to honor the outstanding individuals and institutions who have built our community,” said Mary Csar, society’s executive director.
