Save The Date

There’s an extra great reason to save the date for the Nov. 2 gala event in Boca Raton celebrating the winners of the 2019 Excellence in Journalism Competition! Not only do we have nationally recognized stories competing for the top prizes, John Grogan, author of “Marley & Me,” will take us along on his wild ride from Palm Beach County government reporter at the Sun Sentinel to Philadelphia Inquirer columnist to international bestselling author of a book that captured the country’s heart.

Details soon to be announced!
