The Centurions is a men’s auxiliary that formed in 1994 when a group of residents from the City of Atlantis visited the Palm Beach Habilitation Center. They were deeply moved by the people they saw, who, despite their disabilities, were working diligently to become more independent. They also learned PBHC was desperately in need of resources for facility repairs and capital expenditures. The experience left them determined to assist. As a result, they organized to create the Centurions, “adopted” the Center, and invited others to join them in providing financial assistance.
Each year the Centurions host a cocktail reception at the Lost City Golf Club to benefit the PBHC. Since their founding, the Centurions have raised over $1.4 million.
