BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – A committed group of advocates will host a ‘321 Launch Party’ on Thursday, April 20, at the Indian River Preserve in Mims to initiate support to open Titusville Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida.
Hosts for the event will include Jim and Jonnie Swann, Port Commissioner Jerry and Judy Allender, County Commissioner Rita Pritchard, Misty Belford Brevard County School Board, Jeff Belford, Titusville Council Member Jo Lynn Nelson, Dr. Frank and Marilyn Dienst, Dr. George and Liz Mikitarian, Chris and Lisa McAlpine, Steve and Jean Allender, Els van Engelenburg, Dr. Patricia Manning, Bill and Rachel Terry, Patrice Pilate, and Art and Audrey Edwards.
The event, which includes cocktails, dinner and a program will open registration starting 5 p.m. with an inspiring program starting at 6 p.m.
“Titusville is in critical need of services and activities to guide our youth to be more productive citizens,” said JoLynn Nelson, retired Chief Attorney for Juvenile Justice and current Titusville Council Member.
“Currently, the rate of juvenile crime is increasing. With an organization like the Boys & Girls Club, I believe we can change that.”
The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
“A Club in Titusville is much needed,” said Els van Engelenburg, Titusville resident, child advocate and community activist.
“Our hope is to generate enough interest and obtain the funding to forward our efforts to open a Titusville Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida.”
