The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield, a youth development organization providing programs and services to children and families throughout the South Shore, is a new community partner of the Marshfield Hurricanes Semi-Professional Football Team.
This year, the Marshfield Hurricanes, which is a non-profit organization, and the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield have teamed up as community partners. The Hurricanes won their first home game played against Granite State Destroyers at Marshfield High School on June 22, 2019. A portion of the ticket price ($2 of every ticket sold) was donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield to support youth programming.
In addition to their fundraising efforts which benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield, the Hurricanes will be helping out with athletic programming at the Club and will also pay a visit to the youth attending Summer Camp at the Club.
“We’re excited about our community partnership with the Hurricanes, and congratulate them on their home game victory,” said Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield. “We truly appreciate their support, which ultimately helps us to deliver programs that are the cornerstone of youth development.”
