A Woodbury Boys and Girls Club Initiative

A group of concerned citizens has mounted a serious effort to start a Boys and Girls Club in Woodbury. The club would become part of the Gloucester County Boys and Girls Club that currently operates in both Glassboro and Paulsboro.

An important fundraiser to kick-off the campaign to raise the necessary funds is a “FOUNDERS DINNER” to be held on June 4, 2010 at Nicolosi’s -- 7:00 p.m. (Dinner, libations, entertainment and silent auctions)

The donation required to participate in the dinner is $250/ticket. Obviously, this is a significant sum of money, but the required amount of money to be raised to start this club is equally significant and the group hopes that this dinner event will jump start the effort.

A plaque will be placed at the Woodbury Boys and Girls Club to recognize the generosity of donors:

Founders Circle: $25,000
Patrons Circle: $10,000
Benefactors Circle: $5,000
Visionary Circle: $2,500
Humanitarian Circle: $1,000
Samaritan Circle: $500
Community Circle: $250
Good Neighbor Circle: $100
Friends Circle: $25

Hopefully you can contribute at the Community Circle level or above and join the group for the Friday, June 4, celebration at the Founders Dinner. If not, please consider joining in as a Good Neighbor or Friend.

If I understand correctly, the Boys and Girls Club is an afterschool program for kids. I think that is a worthy program and I hope it comes to fruition.
