Soiree Event Details

2016 SWA Soiree

Shred Event 

Florida having the dubious honor of being named tops in identity theft in the U.S. Don’t become a victim.

SafeGuard LogoThanks to SafeGuard Document Destruction, residents and commercial businesses can bring up to 6 boxes of documents, papers and receipts that have their credit card numbers or other personal information on them to be shredded for FREE during the Soiree hours (7 a.m. - 12 p.m.).

All shredding will be done onsite of the SWA Soiree, 6751 N. Jog Road in West Palm Beach. The shredded documents will be recycled! Due to the anticipated volume of cars expected for this shred event, no one will be allowed to get out of their car to watch their specific documents get shredded.

The Palm Beach County Extension Service offers tips to limit the damage in case identity theft happens to you or someone you know:
  • Call and cancel your credit cards immediately. Keep your credit card numbers and their toll-free numbers handy so you know whom to call.
  • File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your personal information was stolen. This proves to credit providers you were diligent, and is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).
  • Call the three national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and Social Security number. Those numbers are:
    • Equifax: 800-525-6285
    • Experian (formerly TRW): 888-397-3742
    • Trans Union: 800-680-7289
    • Social Security Administration (fraud line): 800-269-0271 
By taking these measures immediately, any company that checks your credit knows your information was stolen and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit.

Guided Trail Walks

Natural scientists from Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve will lead periodic trail walks on the SWA Greenway Trail System, guiding visitors through habitats that house endangered snail kites and wood storks, as well as several other forms of wildlife. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, dress for the weather, and make sure you have sunscreen and bug spray, if needed.
