WHAT IS THE BOATING & BEACH BASH FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES?
South Florida’s Annual Boating and Beach Bash for People with Disabilities (www.boatingbeachbash.com) will celebrate its 5th Anniversary on March 16, 2013. The Bash has grown to become the largest, free, fun-day in America for children, adults and Purple Heart recipients with physical and/or intellectual challenges, and their caregivers. It is held in the tropical setting of Boca Raton, Florida’s famed Spanish River Park. The highlight of the event is the opportunity to enjoy a boat ride aboard a flotilla of private yachts along the Intracoastal Waterway. All boats are donated by members of Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club in Boca Raton. The Bash is completely organized and run by community volunteers and is funded through private donations and sponsorship.
