Palm Beach Gardens, FL – Place of Hope is thrilled to announce its 3rd Annual Paradise on the Peninsula signature fundraising event celebrating Florida’s treasures presented by The Boswell Family. The event will take place on Friday, November 19, 2021, at BMR Stables in the town of Jupiter. The theme is celebrating Florida’s many treasures and the event serves to benefit the 330 children, youth, and families in Place of Hope’s daily care.

“This will be one of South Florida’s largest and best charitable events of the year,” said Charles Bender, Place of Hope Founding CEO. “We are honored to partner with such great community leaders to end our 20th year as an organization strong. This event will celebrate Florida’s great history and most importantly raise critical funds to sustain and expand Place of Hope’s multitude of programs to enrich and foster hope in the lives of neglected and abused children and youth in our county.”

The event will be chaired by committee members Jen Hernandez, Lauren King, and Biani Trimboli who have been fierce advocates for Place of Hope’s mission. Thanks to their hard work, Paradise on the Peninsula will gather over 600 attendees to celebrate old Florida and Place of Hope’s 20 years serving south Florida’s most vulnerable citizens.

It was recently announced that Place of Hope was rated by Charity Navigator as the top in the nation and state of Florida for youth development, shelter and crisis services. Place of Hope has been ranked number one in the nation in this category in 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2021. In addition, Charity Navigator rated Place of Hope a perfect 4-out-of-4-star rating and 100 overall score. This is the tenth consecutive year Place of Hope has received a four-star rating by the charity assessment organization during its twenty years of service.

At the event, guests will enjoy live entertainment by Whiskey Six, amazing food and craft drinks provided by several popular local restaurants, live animals from Busch Wildlife, a mechanical bull, raffles, a wine “ring toss,” cornhole, and more! Guests will also hear from some of our amazing kids and will enjoy an exhilarating live auction and online silent auction.
