The Elliot Museum, Gilbert's Bar House of Refuge & The Fish House Art Center 

Join us as we travel to beautiful Hutchinson Island to visit the Elliott Museum and the Refuge House at Gilbert's Bar. The museum was built by Harmon Elliot as a tribute to his father, Sterling Elliot, an inventor. Leaving the Elliot, our next stop is the Gilbert's Bar House of Refuge, the only one of ten houses of refuge that still exist. After lunch at the Prawnbroker Grill, we will visit the Fish House Art Center which is "home" to resident artists' studios. You will be able to watch them work and purchase their creations.

This trip is all inclusive.

Boynton Book Festival Luncheon: Playing with Fire 

In Playing with Fire, violinist Julia Ansdell happens upon a curios piece of music the Incendio waltz- and is immensely entranced by its unusual composition. Julia is determined to master the complex work and make its melody heard. Back home in Boston, from the moment Julia's bow moves across the strings, drawing the waltz's fiery notes into the air, something strange is stirred-and Julia's world comes under threat. The music has a terrifying and inexplicable effect on her young daughter, who seems violently transformed. Convinced that the hypnotic strains of Incendio are weaving a malevolent spell, Julia sets out to discover the man and the meaning behind the score. 

Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen has written 3 bestsellers in the United States. Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series "Rizzoli & Isles" starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.

Author Event: Elevating Overman 

Danny Johnson, a writer who career never materialized, moves with his wife and children to Cascade Falls, a water- filled, golf community in the bone-dry desert outside of Phoenix. Grudgingly going to work for his father Ted, the Elmer Gantry of home development, Danny's quest for stability ultimately comes up short.

Bruce Ferber, before publishing his debut novel Elevating Overman, built a long and successful career as a television comedy writer and producer. A multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominee, Globes, his credits include "Bosom Buddies," "Growing Pains," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," "Coach," and "Home Improvement," where he served as Executive Producer and show runner.

Honda Classic Birdies for Children
*Donate To a Great Cause & Get a Car!*

The Mandel JCC has partnered  with the Honda Classic Birdies for Children program to raise much needed funds for our Children’s Scholarship Fund! 

What Is Birdies for Children?
Birdies for Children is an organization that serves to help 501(c)3 organizations, like the Mandel JCC, generate additional fundraising dollars!

Where Is My Money Going?
All proceeds benefit the JCC’s children’s scholarship fund directly! This program provides working parents with quality summer, after school and preschool programs for their children. These programs include Judaic enrichment, art, athletic activities and field trips in a welcoming and safe environment where children can socialize, learn, play and build friendships!

How Does this Work?
When you donate to the Honda Classic, not only will 100% of your proceeds benefit the JCC’s children’s scholarship fund, but the Honda Classic will match an additional 10% on each contribution given!

Does My Donation Involve Me In the Honda Classic?   
When you make a donation of $20 or more to the Mandel JCC’s American Honda Birdies for Children campaign, you are also given the opportunity to guess how many birdies you think will be made by all of the golf pros in the 2016 Honda Classic. For the donor that guesses correctly, they will be awarded with a brand new 2016 Honda vehicle! Also, several great prizes will also be raffled off to each participant!
