Tip Your Hat to the Woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon!

I have a confession.

Ever since April 29th, when I got up even earlier than usual on a workday to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, I've been slightly obsessed with funky hats. The problem being, where and when would I wear one?! Somehow my office or even the beach just doesn't seem to be the place.

But wait -- once again, the Junior League of Boca Raton (JLBR) is responding to a community need...the need to wear fun hats! AND pay tribute to some amazing women while doing so.

How, you ask??

During the 24th Annual Woman Volunteer of the Year (WVOY) Luncheon, which will take place on Thursday, October 6th at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. This event celebrates women from various non-profits throughout Palm Beach County who have been nominated for making significant and noteworthy contributions to children, families, individuals and seniors. Last year, the JLBR raised more than $162,000 to support our mission of improving the community. The luncheon is phenomenal every year, but this year there will be a few extra special touches.

"This year, with the the Junior League of Boca Raton celebrating it's 40 year anniversary, it's a little different," explains JLBR member and WVOY committee member Jennifer Barner. "We want everyone to wear hats and tip their hats to the nominees."

"As the Junior League of Boca Raton celebrates 40 years of service to our community this year, it's women such as these nominees who inspire us to continue our mission of women building better communities," adds JLBR president Nancy Dockerty.

Hat or no hat, we'd love to see you there. For more information -- or just to see some more great hats -- visit the Facebook page: facebook.com/WomanVolunteerOfTheYear.
