The Junior League of the Palm Beaches (JLPB),

 a local women’s volunteer
organization with 81 years of service
in Palm Beach County,
formally celebrated the end
of its 2022-2023 season with a cocktail party and dinner held at the North Palm Beach Country Club on Thursday May 18th, 2023.  During the “Evening of Champions” themed dinner catered by on-site Farmer’s Table  awards were 
given to members of the Junior League for recognition of  their dedication to volunteer service with additional grants awarded to a number of
local non-profit organizations.  Annually, the Junior League of the Palm Beaches holds over 100 volunteer shifts internally and at partner organizations in Palm Beach County each year, contributing  upwards of 500 hours of local volunteer service.
Outgoing JLPB President Marcelle Burke shares, "To quote the great Maya Angelou, ‘In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.’ We would not be who we are without that. We could not give back to our community without embracing that. Our Annual May dinner gives us the opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments over the past year and take a moment to celebrate and recognize the heartfelt contributions from our group and local community partners.”

Community Champion Award

Susan Schachtel Literacy and Education Champion of the Year:
Tykisha Grant

Tykisha Grant is a media specialist at Northboro Elementary
School.
Tykisha was honored with this award due to her above
and beyond partnership with JLPB on the installation of four
“Little Free Libraries”
at Title I
Elementary Schools in Palm Beach County
to promote literacy.

Community Partner of the Year: Quantum House

Quantum House is a hospitality house located near St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach that provides a home away from home for out of town families undergoing life-changing medical treatment. Quantum House was founded by JLPB in 2001, and the partnership is still running strong, with Quantum House providing meeting space and training by their CEO and JLPB 1994-1995 Past President Robi Jurney, and JLPB members volunteering for a variety of projects including Chef for a Day which prepares meals for the families staying at Quantum House, organizing literacy activities for children, and other tasks around the house.
 

Mission Supporter of the Year: Keiser
University Flagship Residential Campus

Keiser University Flagship Residential Campus, under the
 leadership of Dr. Garrett Vonk, campus President and Brandon Strassburger, Director of Campus Activities, graciously provided
their campus to host JLPB’s inaugural “Miles for a Mission 5K”
in November 2022. The fundraiser allowed JLPB to raise critical
funds for our community programs.
Recognizing the value in partnering with JLPB, a collaboration
for training
and community service hours was established with
several
campus activities, including the Cross Country and
Lacrosse teams.

Community Advisory Council Mini Grants: Best Buddies ($2,500)
and Junior Achievement ($3,000)

The JLPB Community Advisory Council, under the leadership of President Elect Chelsea Bellew, provided two mini-grants at this event. Ashley Schroth and Gina Griffin accepted a check for $3,000 on behalf of Junior Achievement to continue their high school heroes program. The grant will be used to provide training to 600 high school students to turn them into “heroes” - elementary teachers for a day - to teach age-appropriate Junior Achievement lessons that will impact 4,200 elementary age children in the community. Tricia Williams who delivered the keynote address at the event, accepted a $2,500 check on behalf of Best Buddies, an organization that is dedicated to ending the social, physical, and economic isolation experienced by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through a global volunteer movement.

Scholarship Winner: Graciela Lopez Palma,
Scholarship Winner, John I Leonard High School

Graciela Lopez Palma was honored with a $2,500 scholarship to support her future attendance at Palm Beach State College. The scholarship was awarded in recognition of completing 518.5 hours of community service during high school.
