Madison Area YMCA Health and Wellness Programs

(Madison, NJ) August 4, 2016 – The 15th Annual Madison Area YMCA Charity Bocce Invitational, presented by Investors Bank for the fourth year, begins Monday, September 12, and continues through the middle of October. This year’s goal is to raise $40,000 for the Y’s health and wellness programs.

Hosted by the Forum Club, the event will raise funds for the Madison Area YMCA’s health and wellness programs that include LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, Diabetes Prevention Program, Community Mental Health Initiative, Enhance Fitness, One Step, Delay the Disease and Project Community Pride. Organizers are actively seeking event and team sponsorships.

“We are looking forward to another great bocce season with the community,” said Madison Area YMCA Bocce Event Manager Leigh Anne Soroka. “As the health and wellness needs of our community continue to grow and change, we remain committed to providing no fee opportunities for people to achieve their goals.”

Calling all spectators! Come out and support a great cause. Four matches are played each Monday through Thursday starting at 6:30 p.m. for 45 minutes per match.
