We Locate The House That Boca Raton High Schoolers Promoted As “Prom,” then “Bible Study” Event.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The “mansion” being promoted on private social media channels as the secret location for an all-night Boca Raton high school student party is in Plantation.
The party is a feared super-spreader event. More than 400 people are following what was first a “Boca Raton senior party” page on Instagram, then became a “Bible Study” event once BocaNewsNow.com started asking questions. (News App readers read complete story here).
The location is identified as 11930 NW 8th Street in Plantation. The home is owned by Gustavo Moreno. He is facing multiple citations issued by the City of Plantation and the Plantation Police Department for operating an AirBnB during COVID-19, while it was prohibited by the State of Florida.
Moreno lives in Miami and was unreachable Wednesday night.
The party, set for April 15th, is being billed as an event for students at Boca Raton Community High School, Olympic Heights, Spanish River and West Boca Raton Community High School. The affair is cloaked in secrecy. Students are instructed to pay $65 to $85 on Venmo, only to be told they’ll be given the address on the day of the event. Buses, according to posts now private on Instagram, will be provided from an undisclosed location.
In true Boca Raton fashion, sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the home was leased for a night by a teen using an online service and electronically transferring funds to confirm the lease. Before making all social media posts “private,” an organizer posted a receipt showing the one night lease as running roughly $3000.
The home is currently listed on Apartments.com by a Realtor who appears quite eager to help anyone rent the property. Here is the verbatim listing from Andy Zamudio who writes being a real estate agent is an ‘essential’ business:

It was not immediately clear if the Plantation Police Department has knowledge of the pending party. Plantation officers have been called to the home several times for allegedly illegal events. Those contacting BocaNewsNow.com fear that, aside from the potential for alcohol and drugs, the planned Boca Raton high school student event will become a COVID super-spreader.
