The Rotary Club of Royal Palm Beach will host a testimonial tribute dinner for retiring Royal Palm Beach Mayor Matty Mattioli on Saturday, March 5 at 6 p.m. at the Royal Palm Beach Cultural Center. The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
An outstanding lineup of speakers and guests will assemble to honor Mattioli, who is retiring after almost three decades of public service.
Mattioli is a three-term mayor of Royal Palm Beach and served on the Royal Palm Beach Village Council before being elected mayor. The Pennsylvania native and his late wife Marion moved to Royal Palm Beach more than 30 years ago. Mattioli is a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II. He was employed by Corning Glass for most of his adult life before retiring to Florida.
Lynn Balch is serving as chair of the committee arranging the event. He is assisted by a committee consisting of Jean Morris, Diane Smith, Keith Hernandez, Michael Fehribach, Roland Amateis, Eric Gordon, Jeff Hmara and Dan Splain. Balch expects a sellout crowd to honor Mattioli on his retirement.
There are sponsorship opportunities for the event at multiple levels. Dinner tickets are available at $50 each by calling Dan Splain at (561) 688-5112.
