The Young Professionals of Wellington (YPOW), a nonprofit organization geared toward engaging the community and providing awareness within their age demographic, recently donated $5,000 to the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club in Wellington. The donation will help to support the club’s new music program.
“Our members recently toured the Boys & Girls Club and were able to see first-hand the plans for the new music program,” said Gabie Ervesun, 2016 YPOW president. “The club has a working recipe to connect with our youth that we found truly inspiring. Many of our members are parents, so the passion of the nonprofit’s board and staff hits close to home for our group. This is an organization we feel our demographic (age 25-45) cares about, and we strive to best represent them.”
The funds were raised through YPOW’s annual Wicked Costume & Casino event held in the fall.
“YPOW members work tirelessly throughout the year to find new and creative ways of generating awareness in Wellington,” Ervesun said. “We recognize our peers lead hectic lives, so we try to engage them by balancing our mission of preserving Wellington’s status as a premier community, with fun. Wicked was no exception this year, thanks to our executive board and members.”
The new music program is set to begin in spring of 2016 and will begin with a choral group for children ages 10 and up.
The Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club is located at 1080 Wellington Trace in Wellington. For additional information, contact Kenda Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (561) 790-0343.
