Honor Your Doctor
The Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton is proud to produce the Honor Your Doctor Luncheon held at Boca West Country Club. Proceeds from the event provide scholarship funds for deserving medical, nursing, and healthcare students who attend the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at FAU, the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing at FAU, Lynn University, and Palm Beach State College.
The Honor Your Doctor Luncheon was founded by Helen Babione, a longtime resident and philanthropist in the Boca Raton Community. The upcoming 22nd Annual event will be held on March 18, 2020 (postponed).
The Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton has produced the event for the last eight years; previously the GFWC Boca Raton Woman’s Club was the event sponsor.
The Honor Your Doctor Luncheon is chaired by Alan Kaye and Janice Williams, two founding members of the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton. Janice Williams has been involved in the event for twenty-three years and was very instrumental in bringing the event to the Club. As the Club is dedicated to Health & Wellness, this was a perfect fit as the Club continues to grow the event each year.
Due to the success of the “Honor Your Doctor” Luncheon, the Club received the 2015-2016 Rotary International Presidential Citation, as well as the prestigious Significant Achievement Award, which was presented to only 94 clubs out of 34,000 clubs worldwide.
