LAKE WORTH — For Denise Roeser, St. Patrick’s Day is more than shamrocks and revelers warbling the beloved Irish ballad “Danny Boy.”
Roeser’s daugther was born with hypertonia cerebral palsy, the most common form of the genetic disorder that results in muscle stiffness and spastic movements.
It’s the reason why Roeser started Wheels For Kids 14 years ago, a non profit that donates customized wheelchairs for children and adults in Palm Beach County. The wheelchairs range from $6,000 to $32,000.
The past eight years, Wheels For Kids has been the benefitting charity for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Lake Worth.
“The parade brings awareness to the charity and the children who need these customized wheelchairs,” Roeser said.
That tradition continue today when the parade, hosted by the Lake Worth Shamrock Club, kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Lake Avenue.
Greg Smith, Rhum Shack owner, is the parade’s grand marshal.
LAKE WORTH– The life and work of South Florida political activist Matilda “Bobbi” Graff will be celebrated Sunday at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.
With roots in both South Florida and Michigan, Graff, who died last year at 93, dedicated her life to peace and living in a just world.
Graff and her husband, Emanuel, were leaders in the struggle for civil rights and liberties in Miami from 1948 to 1954 where they confronted Jim Crow, the police and the KKK.
The Graff family was forced to leave Florida in the face of political persecution in the 1950s. But Graff returned in the 1980s to create the Citizens for Social Responsibility, a social reform group based in Delray Beach.
Sunday’s event is scheduled for 1 to 5 p.m. The gallery is on 15 S J Street.
On Friday the city is scheduled to host its annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Cultural Plaza, 414 Lake Avenue. There will be caroling, performances by Downtown Dance, photos with Santa, face painting, food and more.
