New Boynton Foundation to Host Inaugural Event on Valentine's Day


On Monday, February 14th at 5:30 p.m., at Hunters Run Country Club, the new Greater Boynton Beach Foundation will hold its inaugural event, a ground breaking and cocktail reception, for a 13.5-acre barrier-free park on Congress Avenue. Visitors may park for free at WXEL. Cost is $20. RSVP required. E-mail: .

The Greater Boynton Beach Foundation has just been created to further recreation, education and culture, from the ocean to the Everglades. The Foundation is a partnership between the City of Boynton Beach, the Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations (COBWRA) and the Greater Boynton Beach Chamber of Commerce.  The nascent charity is noteworthy for bucking the trend of very few nonprofits started in a three-year economic slump.   
"We choose to work on a single project for now," said GBBF president John McGovern. "And that project is a $2.3 million park that has been in on the drawing board for eight years. Our goal is to raise the final $500,000."  The park will be near Hunters Run and the city of Boynton Beach tennis courts. McGovern also directs Palm Beach County’s Long Term Care Ombdusman program for the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.



“We chose a ‘Love Without Boundaries,’ theme for Valentine’s Day, because this park will be obstacle free and accessible to all who wish to benefit from it. No barriers,” said  volunteer Janelle Sloan, a retired Hunters Run resident, a retired designer of Garanimals childrens clothing.

"Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach have all done wonderful things for their communities. Well, Boynton Beach is right in the middle of them and has a lot going for it. We want to add more amenities and improve the quality of life, right here," Sharon Geltner said. Geltner, a founding Foundation board member, is president of Froogle PR, a special events and Internet marketing firm. She also volunteers for COBWRA.
Sloan added, “The new park will be designed for full access for people with disabilities, as well as senior citizens, returning veterans and anyone who cares to enjoy the peaceful setting.”
