The official kickoff event for the MONOPOLY® Event fundraiser, Boca Helping Hands’ inaugural Tournament of Champions, was held on March 2 at The Addison. Sponsored by The Addison, 50 VIP guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while watching five former Monopoly® Event champions battle it out for bragging rights and their name on the coveted Tournament of Champions Trophy. George Barbar was the evening’s winner; the winner of this year’s MONOPOLY® Event tournament will earn an invitation to compete against other former champions at next year’s VIP kickoff event.
Proceeds from the event will help assist 27,000 people in the South Florida community through BHH’s various programs, including hunger relief, job training, healthcare, emergency financial assistance, childcare, and weekend meals for Palm Beach County schoolchildren.
