Boca Celebrity Cook-Off will be held on Thursday, August 3, 2022, from 5:30- 7:30 PM at Waterstone Resort & Marina Cost is $25 to reserve your luxury experience with our local Boca Celebrities.

Boca Chamber’s Festival Days will also serve as Hanley Foundation’s kickoff event for the upcoming Hanley Foundation’s 3rd Annual Brice’s Makris Brunch, taking place on December 10, 2023, at Boca West Country Club from 11 AM to 2 PM. Hanley Foundation Board Member and Boca resident John Makris and his wife Michelle will chair the event that honors their son, Brice Makris, who passed away in March 2020 from a Fentanyl overdose.

Tragically, overdose rates have skyrocketed, and many people in our community struggle with mental health issues and substance misuse. With the help of the Boca Chamber and the Makris family, Hanley Foundation is increasing awareness of substance use disorders in South Palm Beach County. With the proceeds of this Boca Chamber Festival Days event and Hanley Foundation’s Annual Brice Makris Brunch, we will be able to increase our prevention programming to stop substance use disorder before it begins and provide scholarship programs to provide resources for those who cannot afford the financial burden of recovery.
