More than 400 Broncos spent graduation night at Project Graduation held at Wellington’s Village Park. The all-night event on May 20 provided a safe, alcohol-free and drug-free environment for Palm Beach Central High School seniors to celebrate. Parents spent all year raising money, getting donations and planning the event.
“The Project Graduation Committee raised more than $30,000 for this event,” said Terri Priore, Project Graduation chair. “More than 100 parent and teacher volunteers worked all night to make sure the seniors had a great time.”
Priore and the committee thank the parents, school administration and staff, as well as the business community, including more than 120 businesses that assisted with donations and funds.
Those business included: Gold Level Sponsors the FTI Great Charity Challenge, the Mall at Wellington Green, the Village of Wellington, Whole Foods Market Wellington, Chick-fil-A, Buffalo Wild Wings and Steak ’n’ Shake; Silver Level Sponsors Palms West Hospital, the Wellington Preservation Coalition, the Pediatric Center, the Center for Bone & Joint Surgery, the Royal Inn, Pace Roofing Inc., Dr. Robert Denton DDS, Flanigan’s Seafood Bar & Grill, Dacar Management LLC, the Priore family, the Levi family, Dunkin’ Donuts Wellington, Best French Fries, Brighton Collectibles Wellington and El Sabor Latino Restaurant.
“Project Graduation is a true labor of love by the parents whose simple mission is to keep our graduates safe. We are very grateful to these parents for creating a safe environment for our graduates to celebrate,” Student Activities Director Donna Baxter said.
