New Summer Program!
James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club is excited to announce a new program for July and August of 2021.
TEAM Summer will focus on supporting young people as they re-engage and reconnect after a challenging year. The goal of the program is to support the social-emotional needs of youth & teens and to curb summer learning loss.
Families can sign up to attend in either July OR August (not both).
Registration begins on Monday, May 3, 2021, at 7:00 a.m.
Although the annual St. Patrick’s Day Social at the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn was called off yet again due to health and safety concerns around the ongoing public health crisis, the organization’s 2021 Pot of Gold raffle was a huge success!
The Club sold $100 raffle tickets for four months, beginning just before Thanksgiving. Raffle proceeds support the ongoing operations at the Boys & Girls Club, supporting children, teenagers, and their families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting at Christmas, $1,000 was given away every Wednesday leading right up to St. Patrick’s Day.
This week, the winning ticket for the grand prize of $20,000 was pulled on March 17, 2021 at the Boys & Girls Club and shown live on Facebook. The winner was ticket #1457, belonging to Torrice Company.
Torrice Company President Stephen Torrice shocked Executive Director Julie Gage when he told her “We would like to donate all the winnings back to the Club”!
“We know how difficult this year has been and hope this donation helps the Club prepare to welcome the kids back”. Torrice Company has always been proud to support the JLMBGC.
James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn wishes to thank all those in the community who supported its annual raffle, the largest and most impactful fundraiser of the year. And, save the date for Saturday, March 12, 2022 when we hope to gather back in person at the Club to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to benefit the kids & teens in our community!
