BOCA RATON, Fla. (February 7, 2013) – The University Club of Florida Atlantic University recently celebrated Florida’s 500th anniversary with the “Fountain of Youth” Sunday Brunch to benefit FAU Libraries and the student scholarship fund.

Bob and Regina Vetto served as honorary chairs of the event, and author and historian Sandy Simon was the honorary guest.
“I’d like to thank everyone who attended our ‘Fountain of Youth’ fundraiser,” said Alene Brewer, University Club president. “The music students put on a wonderful show, and we enjoyed hosting this event to raise funds for student scholarships and FAU Libraries.”
