Press release from Fair Haven Girl Up Club

On Saturday, May 7, the Fair Haven Girl Up Club is hosting a glamorous Hollywood-themed Father-Daughter Fundraiser Dance for girls and dads of all ages in Monmouth County. Hosted from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Red Bank Elks Lodge (40 West Front Street), the event starts with a half-hour meet and greet “mocktail” hour outside (weather permitting) on the Navesink River waterfront. A fully catered buffet dinner will be served around 8:30 p.m., and the evening will also include fabulous raffle prizes.

The Girl Up initiative is an adolescent United Nations Jr. Foundation campaign where girls stand up for girls in need; empowering girls around the world to strive for education and transform their world. Girl Up Clubs like the one in Fair Haven volunteer their time and resources to try and help girls in places that pose daily difficulties in just being born a girl.

Headquartered in Washington D.C., the national campaign calls on local Girl Up Clubs to take action, raise awareness to the limited rights and need to educate girls in countries such as Guatemala, Ethiopia, Liberia and India.

Tickets to the May 7 dance are $55 for an adult, $45 for child, $30 every child thereafter.  Please make checks out to Girl Up Club, Fair Haven. Deadline to register is April 10, 2016.  Space is limited, so please call (732)996-3733 or email to reserve. Individual and company raffle donations are also being accepted.
