ASBURY PARK – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties is hosting an open house and book signing Saturday, Nov. 3 at the agency’s new location at 305 Bond St.
The festivities begin at 4 p.m. and kick off with a ribbon-tying ceremony to articulate the message that the organization is about strengthening bonds and not breaking ties. Asbury Park Mayor Ed Johnson and other community leaders and members will be in attendance.
“We are hosting this event to welcome families, the community, and our Bigs and Littles to our new home in Asbury Park,” said Executive Director William Salcedo. “We are also very excited to launch the newly published book written by a group of our Littles titled No Rules…Just Writing.”
The organization partnered with Story Tellers and words! bookstore, both of Asbury Park, to offer a summer creative writing program. The program offered participating Littles the opportunity to write their own stories that were compiled into a published anthology. The Little authors will be on hand to sign the books, which will be available for a suggested donation of $10.
Light refreshments will be served and attendees will have a chance to win a Monmouth Mall Gift Card if they RSVP and attend the event. To RSVP or for more information call 732-544-2224, Ext. 0 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
