Hundreds of families in Riviera Beach are getting a special surprise for Easter weekend.

A truck pulled up to New Macedonia Baptist Church on Saturday and delivered 500 colorful Easter baskets filled with toys and chocolate candy.

Jupiter realtor Rob Thomson wanted to share one of his fondest childhood memories with families who may be struggling this year. That’s what motivated him to donate the Easter baskets.

“So many kids go without Christmas, Easter. My kids are blessed and they don’t go without and you just want to help other people’s kids who may not be receiving it,” said Thomson.

The rest of the baskets will be delivered on Sunday.

Philanthropy abounds in Palm Beach County—just ask the team behind the Waterfront Way Foundation. Launched in 2018 by Rob Thomson, managing partner of Waterfront Properties & Club Communities, the foundation has focused mainly on serving those “who don’t necessarily fit in someone else’s box,” says Thomson.

Such was the case when Waterfront Way gifted Jupiter High School students a shiny new school bus as a holiday gift following a match-by-match donation where a total of $107,000 was raised for the new bus. The old bus had no air conditioning nor wheelchair access, making travel difficult for those in the Exceptional Student Education Program,…

Say hello to the newest member of the Waterfront family, “Topsy”! As a very thoughtful holiday thank you gift, our gracious friends from A1 Moving & Storage have adopted her in our name! Topsy is a green sea turtle receiving care at our beloved Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach after being rescued by the Coast Guard.

Thanks to Loggerhead Marinelife Center, she is in excellent health, but still needs to…

Special needs students at Jupiter Community High School put out a call for help last September. The kids are part of the “exceptional student education program” which brings them to area businesses to learn about jobs and careers and also provides training. An aging bus with no access for wheelchair bound students, no air conditioning and a multitude of other issues made the trips nearly impossible. 

Jupiter Realtor Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties was touched by the story and immediately offered to match all donations. He also took on the role of chief fundraiser to help the students saying, “The most needy kids have the worst transportation.” Several months later Robs’ outreach to the community succeeded.…

Establishing a successful career in real estate is never easy. Even the real estate mogul Rob Thomson of Jupiter would attest to that fact. In fact, many new real estate agents quit their job within two years of being in the industry. Some of them don’t realize that it’s entirely possible to take your real estate career to the next level. With patience, perseverance, and hard work, aspiring real estate agents will eventually get to where they want to be. 

According to Thomson, he wouldn’t have been as successful as he is today without the mentorship of his mother, Joan Thomson, an established and successful real estate agent whom Rob still goes to for advice today. With the insights he gained from Joan, he…

Waterfront Way Foundation presented a check in the sum of $20,000 to Place of Hope this Tuesday from Waterfront Way Foundation’s “Cruise For Kids” event in May of this year. This amount was then doubled by Place of Hope’s Emergency Response Matching Fund to bring contributions to $40,000 in support of the non-profit organization.

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Place of Hope was forced to cancel more than five fundraising events in 2020 to adhere to social distancing regulations, including the “Fish For Hope KDW Tournament”, the “17th Annual Golf Invitational and Charity Dinner”, their “Paradise Found Dinner” at Adams Ranch, and their “Summertime Parties With A Purpose” event. Fundraising events are vital to Place of Hope’s budget…
