GFWC; Boca Raton Woman’s Club and Rotary Club Downtown Boca
Raton have joined forces to honor doctors at the 15th annual
“Honor Your Doctor” luncheon to be held at Broken Sound Club
on Wednesday, March 20th.
The public is invited to nominate their favorite doctor by
completing a nomination form online at the
www.rotarydowntownbocaraton.org website and paying
$40 per nomination or $100 for 3 nominations; all nominated
doctors will be invited to attend the luncheon as a guest.
Tickets for the luncheon are available to the public for
$75.00 per person. The event is a fundraiser for the Helen
M. Babione Medical Scholarship Fund and will benefit medical
and nursing school students attending four local
universities: Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at FAU,
Christine Lynn Nursing School at FAU, Lynn University and
Palm Beach State College.
This year’s Honor Your Doctor luncheon is chaired by Janice
Williams with co-chairs Joan Weidenfeld and Ingrid Fulmer.
Honorary Chairs are Holli Rockwell, Jerry and Terry Fedele
and the Honorary Physician Advisor is Dr. Nicolas R. Breuer.
The fundraiser was the brainchild of Helen M. Babione, who
is still an active member of the GFWC and passionate about
raising funds to support the medical community in Boca
“We are so pleased to come aboard as the new partner in this
important endeavor which perfectly aligns with our mission
of supporting FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine
and our Health & Wellness initiative,” said Rotary Club
Downtown Boca Raton President Alan Kaye. “At the
recommendation of a Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton member,
luncheon committee member and esteemed Doctor, Robert Colton
M.D. proposed the great idea of having doctors honor doctors
with a nomination,” added Kaye.
“We are so energized with the new affiliation with the
Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton and the new venue of Broken
Sound Club. The Honor Your Doctor luncheon is a great
opportunity to recognize our medical community and at the
same time raise needed funds for deserving medical and
nursing school students to attend our local universities,”
said Chair Janice Williams. “The goal is to have them
engaged in the community early on and remain in practice
here in South Florida.”
Gwen Herb president of GFWC; Boca Raton Woman’s Club added
that this is the first year that the luncheon is to be held
at Broken Sound and to celebrate, the Broken Sound Club has
agreed to provide an invitation to each top nominated Doctor
for a complimentary round of golf to be scheduled for a
future date after the luncheon.
