The fundraising event will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd from midnight to midnight. Last year’s event raised more than $68 million nationally and $3.1 million locally, with our area ranking 7th in the nation.

Gifts made during the 24-hour period will be multiplied by additional dollars from a bonus pool that have been raised by the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties!
