OC Recreation Boosters donate to youth programs

By PRESS RELEASE | Nov 22, 2017

(Nov. 24, 2017) The Ocean City Recreation Boosters recently donated $7,750 toward the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department’s youth programs held in the fall.

“This year the OC Recreation Boosters gave over $46,000 to help financially support youth programs,” Ocean City Recreation Boosters President Donna Reid said. “It is important to the Boosters to continue raising funds for the local youth so that they are able to stay active all year round alongside of their peers.”

The Ocean City Recreation Boosters is a nonprofit, independent community group made up of representatives from various community organizations, as well as interested individuals. The group works diligently throughout the year to raise money to help offset costs of recreation programs. Its support, paired with that of other community associations and local businesses, make it possible for the town to maintain such low program fees.

Since 2001, the Ocean City Recreation Boosters have donated more than $900,000 to support the programs of the Ocean City Recreation Department through several different fundraisers, such as Swing for Youth Golf Tournament at Eagle’s Landing, hot chocolate sales during Winterfest of Lights, St. Patrick’s Soccer Tournament T-shirt sales and wine booths at Springfest, Sunfest and Sunset Park concerts.

In addition to fundraising, the volunteers also offer their time and talents during a variety of events hosted by Ocean City Recreation and Parks, including Halloween Spook-Out, Easter Bunny Fun Shop and athletic tournaments.

Ocean City Recreation Boosters are critical to the continued success of Ocean City Recreation programs.
