Boca Raton, FL — There’s nothing like the “sweet” taste of success, and that’s what the 11th Annual LOOP for Literacy presented by Florida Crystals was, raising a record $80,000+ to help fight illiteracy in Palm Beach County! 

More than 250 donors and 300 bikers, runners and walkers participated in the LOOP for Literacy: LOOP Your Way to benefit the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. That meant participants could bike, walk, or run in the manner, time, and place of their choice as they embraced looping your way. 

In addition to our presenting sponsor Florida Crystals, we are extremely grateful for support from LOOP founder Steve Leveen and his wife Lori of the Levenger Foundation and Domino Sugar, our gold sponsors; and the Sugar Cane Growers CO-OP, Marshall Grant PLLC, which is newly merged into Lorium Law, and NCCI, our bronze sponsors. 

LOOP Co-chairs Joe Grant of Boca Raton and Andy Loewenstein of Palm Beach Gardens not only rallied the community but also their respective colleagues at Marshall Grant/Lorium Law and Holland & Knight to place them both among the top 5 team fundraisers, which also included Trailwood, the Racy Readers, and Team Taft. 

Proceeds from the event will support literacy efforts in Palm Beach County to ensure children and adults get the help they need to succeed in school and life.
