BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - March 27, 2017) - After an extraordinary first year, the Boca West Foundation is pleased to announce that Norman Radow (the RADCO Companies) and Sally and Aubrey Strul have agreed to renew their $150,000 Sports Challenge Sponsorship. Their sponsorship is the lead supporter of the 2017 $200,000 Boca West Foundation Golf Challenge, happening on April 3 at Boca West Country Club.
The Sports Challenge Sponsorship underwrites the beneficial sports programs the Foundation provides for children at risk in South Palm Beach County.
The programs include a five-week tennis camp attended by 180 kids and a two-week golf camp, attended by 65 children and 130 young adults for a life-changing experience at Camp Wewa in Apopka, Florida. This year, the Foundation is adding an All-Star Basketball Camp run by NBA great, Otis Birdsong, and a baseball instruction weekend with retired major league baseball players.
"Mr. Radow (the RADCO Companies) and the Struls hope their contributions will encourage others to implement more after-school and summer sports programs as they are an important part of keeping at-risk kids safe while giving them a chance to thrive," said Arthur Adler, Chairman of the Boca West Foundation. "The goal is to have 1,000 children enrolled in the program by 2019."
The RADCO Companies is an Atlanta-based opportunistic real estate firm with a nationally recognized platform concentrated in the acquisition and repositioning of struggling assets, with significant experience in multi-family and mixed-use condominium developments. Founded in 1994, the Company has acted as both a principal and service provider to lenders and financial institutions for over 20 years.

Twenty-three years and over 100 successful projects later, RADCO still specializes in maximizing the value of distressed, underperforming and challenging real estate assets.
