PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — The Club at Ibis residents came together Sunday to help those less fortunate. All items donated help support the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
A constant line of vehicles filled with bags of groceries made drop-offs between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. inside the parking lot of Club Ibis. Volunteers assisted with loading and sorting all the donations. Rick Carpenter with Club Ibis said the community’s support continues to grow every year.
“Today the need is greater than usual. Last year we had an impact from Hurricane Irma and the need was great last year because of that catastrophe. There are many people in need that wouldn’t previously ask for help,” Carpenter said.
The Palm Beach County Food Bank provides access to nutritious food for more than 100,000 people every month. The food bank procures approximately 5 million pounds of food annually from grocery stores, restaurants, food distributors and wholesalers. The Palm Beach County Food Bank programs reaches families, school children and seniors and connects those in need to resources.

The Golfin' Guy reviews The Club at Ibis:
"To say The Club at Ibis is a residential golf community is a gross understatement; it’s a community that relishes in a lifestyle that has it all. Behind the secure gates of this West Palm Beach community are 33 neighborhoods with over 1850 homes. Ibis is a mandatory membership community which boasts some of the finest conditioned golf courses, and recreational facilities in South Florida. Members must purchase at minimum a social Membership level, but when a golf Membership grants you access to three championship Nicklaus family-designed courses by Jack himself as well as sons Jack Jr. and Steve, why would you consider anything less?"

Ibis Charities is Named Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation
The Palm Beach County Chapter of the Association of Professional Fundraisers, one of 300 chapters worldwide, has selected Ibis Charities to receive the award of Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation of the year.
Each year, the chapter selects an individual philanthropist, a corporation, a foundation and a fundraising professional to be recognized for outstanding achievement.
Ibis Charities, the official foundation of The Club at Ibis, was chosen because it has made a significant impact on the community by supporting non-profit organizations in Palm Beach County. The Foundation carefully selects and vets those organizations that provide family and social services, health and wellness programs, educational programs, art and cultural opportunities and environmental concerns.
With an all volunteer group of supporters, the Foundation has donated over $875,000 to local charities over the past three years.
Sharon Bross, President of Ibis Charities will accept the award on behalf of the Board of Directors and the Members of The Club at Ibis at the awards ceremony next month.
“Ibis Charities Foundation is honored” Bross said “to be recognized for its efforts to give back to those in the community who need a helping hand. We would not be able to do this without the support of The Club at Ibis and the Major Sponsors who give generously to the Foundation and the hundreds of Members who attend and participate in our series of fundraisers throughout the year”.
Ibis’s GM/COO Stephen J. LoGiudice is in the September issue of Jupiter Magazine, The Palm Beacher, and Boca Life. This special issue features Palm Beach County’s 2018 business leaders.
