Oceans 234's "Culinary Cult" is a Foodie's Paradise with Caribbean Flavor

There's nothing wrong with a little ambition in the kitchen. Since launching back in March, Oceans 234's culinary series for foodies, "Culinary Cult" has been able to adequately showcase executive Chef Victor Franco's range in the popular seafood restaurant's kitchen. Events of this nature usually take northern rides with dollar amounts but for a very reasonable $60 a head, this can be a rewarding once-a-month experience for adventurous diners on a budget.

This month's cult meeting, finalizes the summer of 2014 with one last kick of tangy beach vacay flavor with "Passport to Paradise: A Caribbean Affair" and it being the fourth in the series, it will be heavy with expectation as the chef and his kitchen can no longer rely on rookie/sophomore mistakes. It might not break the bank, but the series does pride itself in exclusivity and exclusivity demands perfection -- all the hallmarks of the better cults.

Three for three is the breakdown of times and years that the Greater Boca Raton's Chamber of Commerce Boca Festival Days, the Alliance Association Bank and Boca Raton Regional Hospital have partnered up to promote the Lynn Cancer Institute's League of Ribbons initiative.

The League of Ribbons strives to support patients at the Institute in need of financial assistance during their treatments as well as for wellness education, wellness programs and secondary support areas; which are all worthy peripheral endeavors.

The Melting Pot, the restaurant of sizzling oils and cheese/chocolate pots has not shied away from getting involved in the endeavors of these organizations in the past and the Boca Raton locale will host this year's "FondueRaiser."

Happy Hour Benefitting the Broward Children's Center at Beauty and the Feast

Burgeoning philanthropists Erika Thomas and Nicole Hogan made the conscious decision a few years ago of becoming involved in their community and in the well-being of any community's most precious resource, children. After a humbling experience touring the Broward Children's Center in 2010, a partnership of fundraising was born.

The Broward Children's Center opened its doors over 40 years ago and specializes in the social and medical needs of developing and special needs children; offering a range of health, wellness, education, recreational, therapeutic, living and advocacy services. As such, the Center has been a pioneer in the development of "community-based" residential facilities for children with developmental disabilities or who are medically fragile.

Thomas and Hogan's Happy Hours have raised over $35K for the center.
