Boley Angels

Angel Brunch 2015 016History of the Boley Angels

The Boley Angels were founded by long-time Board Member and one of Boley Centers’ founders, Mary Koenig, in 1984 to promote community awareness and support of Boley’s rehabilitation programs. Over the years, the Angels have been involved in various fundraising events for Boley, including a fashion show luncheon, an annual membership tea and an annual Christmas brunch. The tea has evolved into the Boley Angels’ Membership Wine & Cheese which typically takes place in the spring and the Boley Angels’ Gala Holiday Brunch is held early in the month of December at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.

During fiscal year 15/16, the Boley Angels raised just over $20,000.00 which helped them to provide 15 welcome baskets with basic for families moving into permanent supported housing as well as to replace flooring and bed frames at one of the agency’s group homes for women.
