Opportunity Knocks and The Breakers doors opened at 7pm on Friday, March 28th to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Opportunity Inc. for a celebratory Gala and evening of fun as we “bring generations together” by honoring the past and create the future. Our MC for the evening is Steve Weagle as we dance the evening away to the music of The Soul Survivors band. The event is chaired by Tara Gronberg, Millie Dayton and Emanuela Marcello.
Opportunity, Inc. was founded, by members of the Women’s Guild from Bethesda by the Sea, Episcopal Church, in 1939. Opportunity, Inc., is the oldest charity in the Palm Beaches, and has made major contributions to the less fortunate in the community, with emphasis on low income families. Programs and activities have been consistently designed and conducted in order to “break the cycle” of poverty in our Community. The current activities are centered on early childhood learning at the Mary Alice Fortin Center in Westgate.
