Children 12 and under are welcome to grab their rod & reel to come fish at the Juno Beach Pier on December 21st at 9am for a small $10 donation.

Florida Atlantic University just received a gift of $3.8 million worth of fine art. The charitable gift from Attorneys Rick Stone and wife Lesley Blackner includes 17 paintings, with works by Henri Matisse, Edward Willis Redfield, David Park, and John Henry Twachtman.

The paintings will comprise the “Rick and Lesley Stone Art Collection”, and will be on display at the Ritter Art Gallery on FAU’s Boca Raton campus.

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of attending an event at the Kravis Center for Performing Arts in Downtown West Palm Beach understands the level of class and brilliance this venue provides. I was lucky enough to walk across the Kravis Center stage as part of a graduating class of Alexander W. Dreyfoos High School of the Arts, and have experienced the wonderment of their regal ballet performance, The Nutcracker, as one of our family holiday traditions.

Aside from an expanded lobby, additional restrooms, behind-the-scenes technology improvements, a valet

People in the South Florida have always had a thing for health and wellness.  “Movember” is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's emotional health. The purpose of this annual event is to raise awareness around men’s health.

The term “Movember” is a hybrid of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, "mo", and "November".  For clarification purposes the “MovembeFoundation” focuses on men's health, and “NoShavember” is aimed at fighting cancer, regardless of sex. “Movember” is its own separate thing, with its own separate rules, and activism.

Founded in 2003 by two men, Travis Garone and Luke Slattery,

Today Palm Beach County wakes thankful, yet concerned. Thankful that we were spared the wrath of Hurricane Dorian, yet concerned for those who weren’t.

Palm Beachers know what it means to come together during times of crisis. Accordingly, many of us are already thinking of the Bahamas. If you are looking to help out, here is what you need to know:

The Better Business Bureau encourages donors to make sure that they are offering support — particularly monetary donations — to experienced disaster relief organizations and avoid newly created charity groups that seem inexperienced or have unclear agendas and mission statements. Donors can check the authenticity of relief organizations on the Better Business Bureau website as well as give.org.
