21st Annual Red Apple Scholarship Luncheon

Twenty-Five Scholarships Presented by the Women’s Red Apple Foundation

The Women’s Red Apple Foundation of Palm Beach County (formerly known as the Women’s Chamber Foundation) awarded 25 scholarships to local women totaling a record of $79,000. In addition, one of our Recipients received a laptop donated by Toshiba Business Solutions. “We are so thankful for our donors and supporters who enabled us, through their donations, to meet this milestone,” said Margaret Montalvo, President of the Foundation. “What makes our Organization unique is that our model is such that we seek to offer scholarships not only for graduating high school seniors, but also to women returning to school and seeking higher education later in life. We also support our past recipients at a time in their education when financial support is limited. We understand the value of supporting the education of women of all ages. Over the past 20 years, 70% of scholarship recipients were between 18-22 years of age and 30% were 23 and older.

The 21st Annual Women’s Red Apple Scholarship Luncheon took place on June 6, 2024, at Benvenuto Restaurant in Boynton Beach. The Scholarship Awards were presented to the 25 Recipients in front of a sold-out crowd.

Event Sponsors included our Presenting Sponsor the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Keiser University, Risk Strategies | Gehring Group, Guardians Credit Union and 2GHO Inc.
