Delray Beach Home Tour raises record amount
More than 700 guests enjoyed the Achievement Centers for Children & Families’ 17th-annual Delray Beach Home Tour, which showcased seven residences and one garden. With the help of 130-plus volunteers, a record $130,109 was raised for the agency’s programs and services, which provide early education and child care to low-income
families. The event also offered a silent auction featuring works by local artists, jewelry and spa experiences.
New FAU program to help low-income students Some of the high school graduates accepted at Florida Atlantic University will never step foot on campus. Not because they lack the

desire or are unwilling to work hard for a college education, but because they can't afford it. FAU President John Kelly, along with Boca Raton philanthropists Aubrey and Sally Strul, have teamed up to create the Kelly/Strul Emerging Scholars Program to provide financial resources for lowincome undergraduates. The school has received a gift of $1 million from the Struls
for the initial investment. “I was the first in my family to attend college and feel fortunate to have attended the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,” Aubrey Strul said. “This experience has led to a successful and fulfilling life, and I feel inspired to help young people receive these same opportunities.”
An investment of $50,000 per student, representing $12,500 each year for four years, will ensure that students can attain degrees and devote themselves to academics and extracurricular activities. Send news and notes to Amy Woods at flamywoods@ bellsouth.net.
