Mary Ann and Harold Perper: A Passion for Giving and Serving Their Community
The Perpers' generosity is evident throughout the hospital, as their giving has made a significant difference in each of our centers of excellence, including the Wold Family Center for Emergency Medicine, the Christine E. Lynn Women's Health and Wellness Institute, the Christine E. Lynn Heart and Vascular Institute, and in the Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute.
While every gift the Perpers have given has made a difference to the patients we serve, one that stands out as a visionary gift is the charitable remainder unitrust of which they named Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation as one of the beneficiaries. Through their planned gift, Mary Ann and Harold will fund cutting-edge equipment for the Neuroscience Center. The Perpers have a vision for what we will be able to accomplish in the neuroscience field right here in Boca Raton and have made a plan to make that vision a reality. Once again, they have shown in a very tangible way how much they care for our community.
Mary Ann is a longtime hospital volunteer and a lifetime member of the Debbie Rand Memorial Service League. She has served on the committee for the Hospital Ball, which will celebrate its 50th year on Jan. 21, 2012, at the hospital's Golden Gala. Mary Ann also serves on Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation's Go Pink Luncheon committee.
Mary Ann and Harold were recently honored by the Boca Raton Historical Society as recipients of the Boca Walk of Recognition Award, which recognizes outstanding members of the community. Their care and concern for others are clearly demonstrated through the time they have given in service and by the generous gifts they have made to Boca Raton Regional Hospital and other local organizations including Lynn University, the Boca Raton Museum of Art and Florence Fuller Child Development Center.
