“We are truly thankful for the generosity of all of the participating clubs in the area, especially Craig Martin who recruits our neighboring private country clubs. Every effort makes a difference and I want to express our gratitude," said Andrea Canon, a Feed the Hungry Volunteer.

St. Andrews Country Club, Addison Reserve Country Club, The Polo Club of Boca Raton and Mizner Country Club continue the tradition of coming together to aid Congregation B'nai Israel of Boca Raton and Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in their 34th Annual Feed the Hungry Program that provides Thanksgiving dinner to over 4,000 area residents on Tuesday, November 21. St. Andrews Country Club, for the past nine 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, “Each year I look forward to contributing to this event and having the opportunity to give back to our community. Being a part of this special cause is extremely rewarding. I am proud to work alongside the Board of St. Andrews Country Club and my fellow Club Managers Association of America members who consistently 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 hundreds of people at our respective clubs.”

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

The four country clubs are providing fifteen hundred servings of macaroni & cheese, green beans, stuffing and mashed potatoes to Congregation B'nai Israel of Boca Raton and Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church. Over 4,000 people, mostly children, from Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach and West Palm Beach are expected to partake in this 34 year old tradition of fellowship, love and respect.
