Local Businesspeople on the Board to create Boys & Girls Club in Woodbury

May, 2011 – Woodbury, NJ – After working for about a year to establish a new boys and girls club in Woodbury, the club committee found renewed energy while visiting the Paulsboro Boys & Girls Club last week.  Local children come to the Paulsboro Club House daily from 3-6 PM and engage in positive activities and get a hot meal.  “These kids were clearly benefiting from the great connection that exists between them and the director,” says Jay Cipriani, who is on the Board to create the new club.  “We want to provide the same opportunity to children in Woodbury to play, learn computers and benefit from great mentoring.”

Cipriani joined the Board about a year ago as it began its work to open a new Boys & Girls club here.  And it’s been a busy year finding the right location, interviewing for the director role and of course, fundraising.  Enthusiasm among the board members which includes town committee members, citizens and local businesspeople is high and they are looking forward to their big event in June to raise money for the new club and recognize John Michael Paz as the Boys & Girls Club Citizen of the Year.

The Board will host the Woodbury Community Cocktail Party on Wednesday, June 8, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Nicolosi’s Catering, 1 Hessian Avenue, Woodbury.  There are a few sponsorship opportunities remaining along with tickets to attend and support the new club.  Contact Jeff or Theresa Morris at 856-845-4980 for more information.
