Boca Raton, Florida: Flossy's Former Fountain

Paid for by Florence A. Keesely: a gold version of herself in a ball gown, holding aloft a large cartoon star (lit at night) that plays "Stardust," her favorite song, every evening. Repairs in 2021 plan to remove the fountain.

Flossy Fountain.

Flossy's Fountain

It's in the Mizner Park shopping area, at the beginning of the street if you follow directions to enter. Lovely shopping area with gazebos and benches and upscale shops and dining, which is worth the visit. Flossy was a philanthropist and star of the first talk show.

[Carol, 09/03/2020]

Florence Keesely lived to be 101, and funded and dedicated the fountain to her much-younger self when she was 90. The dog at her feet is her Yorkshire Terrier, Schatzi.
