On Saturday, March 16, Senator Sachs attended the nation’s biggest, free, fun-event for kids, adults, and Purple Heart recipients with physical and/or intellectual disabilities, the 5th Annual Boca Raton Boating & Beach Bash.

More than 5,000 people attended the event at Spanish River Park, which included live music, boat rides, face painting and food intended to provide a care-free day for people with disabilities.

Senator Sachs spent the morning thanking volunteers who organized the event and meeting many of the attendees.  When the Senator was given the opportunity to address all those in attendance, she voiced her support for the wonderful event and made her opinion about opportunities for the disabled very clear.

“I believe that all the people of my district and all the people of Florida deserve equal opportunities and equal access to the amazing recreational activities that our beautiful State has to offers.”
