On October 3, FoundCare was honored at the 2023 Hats Off Award Ceremony hosted by Nonprofits First. Our Community Collaborators Award owes its success to the unwavering commitment of our exceptional partners, including the RBHI Resident Advisory Committee, Community Partners of South FloridaHealth Council of Southeast FloridaAmerican Heart Association (Palm Beach County), and the  City of Riviera Beach. FoundCare is privileged to be part of this devoted and passionate collective. Together, we have exerted tireless efforts to effect positive change, investing in individuals, localities, and systems to ensure the well-being of our Riviera Beach residents.

We look forward to continuing our collaborative endeavors to offer comprehensive community programs in the times ahead.

The Hats Off Nonprofit Awards has grown into one of the most anticipated nights of camaraderie and recognition in Palm Beach County. The event aims to congratulate the most accomplished organizations and leaders of the year, honoring nonprofit causes, leaders, and volunteers for their profound impact and performance.

“The Nonprofits First Lucky 7th Annual Hats Off Awards were the best ever! With a record-breaking number of nominees (167), attendees (680), and sponsors (85), the event was nothing short of magical. I am so proud of our nonprofit community; they do so much good, and they deserve to be honored and celebrated. It is truly our pleasure to host such an important and significant event!” said Jessica Cecere, CEO of Nonprofits First.

The Community Collaborators Award is presented to those with a demonstrated partnership of 2 or more organizations to achieve a common goal to address a problem that could not have been solved as effectively by a single organization. Nonprofit organizations, individuals, and other entities whose combined efforts have had a significant impact on our community are eligible to win.

“Thank you to the Hats Off People’s Choice Awards for recognizing FoundCare and our partners. FoundCare is humbled and honored to bring access to healthcare to all Riviera Beach residents and looks forward to continued collaboration through the Riviera Beach Health Initiative! Thank you Nonprofits First,” said FoundCare CEO Christopher Irizarry.
