JC Recreation Foundation Cocktail Party Fundraiser

The Jersey City Recreation Foundation is hosting a Cocktail Party fundraiser this Thursday, October 16th. It will be from 6:00pm until 9:00pm at The Liberty House Restaurant at 76 Audrey Zapp Drive. The guest speaker will be hall of fame coach, Bob Hurley.

Below is an excerpt from the sponsorship letter related to the Jersey City Reservoir. Below that is the flyer for the event and the sponsorship form. We hope that you will be able to join us at the fundraiser and any contribution is greatly appreciated!

“Mayor Steven M. Fulop has pledged to make the expansion of recreation programs a top priority and the Jersey City Recreation Foundation is committed to support those efforts. Together we have accomplished great things but we realize there is much more that needs to be done to be able to offer both traditional and innovative recreation opportunities to area youth.

The Jersey City Recreation Foundation is currently working towards two major goals to support Director Strother and the Department of Recreation. These projects include a new multipurpose surface for the Pershing Field Ice Rink to expand the use of that facility beyond ice skating and hockey season. Also, the Recreation Foundation, in conjunction with the Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance, hopes to fund a boating program at the Reservoir in the Heights section of Jersey City with the purchase of kayaks and other equipment to provide a sustainable kayaking program for next year’s season.”

– Maureen Hulings, Chairwoman
