Bill Tome is a recognized community leader in Palm Beach County – both as a retired Boynton Beach County Police Officer and as a current Palm Beach County School District Officer – and his charitable efforts have spanned his entire 25-year career in South Florida. The Foundation’s spotlight Back to School Clothing Drive, Scholarships for Extra Curricular Activities and Summer Camp are centerpieces of their work, as is Bill’s involvement in local area youth sports and athletics and the mentoring aspects of the Foundation’s efforts. Funds raised from the 2017 Golf Classic will go towards expanding those efforts and others like them in the area.
“There is no greater investment we can make than in the wellbeing and success of our community’s young people,” said Bill Tome, president of the foundation. “The opportunities we give children who otherwise may have not had a chance to achieve has a tremendous positive impact on the neighborhoods in which those children and families live. They become catalysts for real and lasting change in South Florida, as they seek to pay it forward to others in the future.”
