EVENTS

A Fabulous "Fun" Raiser

The Plantation Community Foundation hosted its first fundraising event of the 2019-20 season on Thursday, November 14 at the Plantation Golf & Country Club in Venice. 

 

The event featured the “Atlantic City Boys” performing rock-n-roll harmonies of the Beach Boys, Drifters, the BeeGees and of course Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, a lively auction, cash prize drawings and great food.  A 1950’s-60’s theme was the style for the night and most of the attendees dressed in the Bobby Sox/Hippie attire.  The Foundation’s first fundraising event of the season outdid itself with over 300 participants.  A fabulous time was had by all participants who helped kick off the season.
