UNION COUNTY – On Friday, Oct. 25, from 6:30-11 p.m. at the Gran Centurions in Clark, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County will honor Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage, Timothy Williams of Elizabethtown Gas, and Altria Group. The awards presentation will take place from 6:30-7:30 p.m. prior to the opening of the Monte Carlo casino games.
“This year’s honorees have been an integral part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County’s success”, said Russell Triolo, Chief Executive Officer. “Our honorees have provided tremendous support for a number of years to benefit the children who need our services most”.
The 4th Annual Monte Carlo Night Gala is a fundraiser to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County, to help assist in providing youth development programs and services to over 7,500 children who attend the Clubs located in Elizabeth, Union, Hillside, Plainfield, Linden, and Roselle.
“This special event is back by popular demand because people loved being able to have such a great time while raising real money for a worthy cause,” said Triolo. “We hope to see everyone back again this year, along with new friends of our youth development organization.”
Tickets for the event are $100 and includes a buffet, open bar, and $100 in play money for the casino games. A silent auction and prize raffles will also be featured.
