Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play(R), today announced that two of its associates have been recognized as recipients of the 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County Award. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County and The Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center are hosting this year's 3rd Annual 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County Dinner on May 12, 2011 at The Signature Grand in Davie, Florida.
"It is an honor to be nominated in such a category as the 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County," says Ellen Devine, Executive Assistant to Bluegreen's President and CEO, John Maloney. "The work we do at Bluegreen and the culture we have created within our community allows for nominations such as this and it is very humbling to be included in a category of outstanding women."
The 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County Dinner has been bringing the community together for the past three years to celebrate how far women have come in leadership in the business, community and philanthropic fields. Together with the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, this committee has been able to help provide positive alternative programs for over 11,500 "at-risk" children by also providing a residential treatment center that houses mothers and their children in order to "STOP THE CYCLE" of family dysfunction and substance abuse.
Angela Ward, President of Bluegreen's Resort Title Agency states, "Having only been in South Florida for just over three years, it is an honor to be recognized by the organization and it has been such a great transition to South Florida working with Bluegreen Corporation, meeting great people, getting to know my community and supporting the great organizations of South Florida. I feel like I have found my home."
Over 1,000 attendees will come together to celebrate the Outstanding Leaders in their community during this event, which will also include a silent and live auction, and a high-end Fashion Show by Rene Ruiz Couture. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Susan B Anthony Recovery Center and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.
