Holiday Benefit for Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) April 5, 2006
Adria de Haume, a Greenwich “home town” talent, opened her studio on December 11th, 2005 for a holiday show of her exclusive designs to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich. “Adria’s warm, generous spirit embraces everyone, especially children and I am honored by her commitment to reach out to make a difference both personally and professionally for the Club”, said Carol Browne, prominent member of the Board of Trustees.
Established in 1910, the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, (BGCG) known as “The Positive Place for Kids,” encourages youth leadership through its character development and leadership programs. The Club provides education in career enhancement, health and life skills, the arts, sports, fitness and recreation. The Club’s steadfast mission remains: “To inspire and enable all young people in our community, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.” To learn more about this wonderful organization, visit their web site http://www.bgcg.org
The holiday studio event was a great success, with Haume donating $ 10,000 to the Club. Bob DeAngelo, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club, wrote, “this support ensures that we continue to make great moments for many children, and to our mission.”
Both he and Carol Browne expressed their gratitude for this gift.
Adria remarked, “It is my joy to be able to do this for such a deserving endeavor. Greenwich is a town where people care deeply about the welfare of others, and their philanthropic support for the Boys and Girls Club, as well as for so many other important charities, is a beautiful reflection on the spirit of our community.”
