St. Andrews Country Club, Addison Reserve Country Club, and The Polo Club continue the tradition of coming together to aid Congregation B'nai Israel of Boca Raton and Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church of Boca Raton in their 32nd Annual Feed the Hungry Program that provides Thanksgiving dinner to over 4,000 area residents on Tuesday, November 24. St. Andrews Country Club, for the past seven years, has organized the donations of traditional Thanksgiving side dishes by recruiting other area clubs to participate.

Craig D. Martin CCM, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of St. Andrews Country Club reached out to his colleagues to provide side dishes. Martin commented, “I look forward the opportunity each year to participate in such a great community event. This event is rewarding for everyone involved and I am once again inspired by the St. Andrews Country Club Board of Governors and my fellow Club Managers Association members who continue to provide many of the side dishes.”

Martin continued, “It is very important to us to come together and use our resources to help those who are less fortunate, especially during the holiday season. We are thankful for our respective executive chefs and their superior culinary staff who prepare the side dishes for Feed the Hungry in addition to preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for thousands at our clubs.”

“We are truly thankful for the generosity of all of the participating clubs in the area, especially Craig Martin who has recruited neighboring private country clubs year after year to help us. Every effort makes a difference and I want to express our gratitude to them, and especially to St. Andrews for their continual support,” said Janyce Speier, a Feed the Hungry volunteer and St. Andrews C.C. member.

The three country clubs are providing thousands of servings of macaroni & cheese, grilled broccoli, and sweet potatoes to Congregation B'nai Israel of Boca Raton and Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church.
