Boley Angels

 

History

The Boley Angels were founded by long-time Board Member and one of Boley Centers’ founders, Mary Koenig, in 1984 to promote community awareness and support of Boley’s rehabilitation programs. Over the years, the Angels have been involved in various fundraising events for Boley, including a fashion show luncheon, an annual membership tea and an annual Christmas brunch. On an annual basis the Angels now host three events:

  • Low Country Shrimp Boil in the spring
  • Hot Jazz & Cool Members Event in the fall
  • Jingle & Mingle Holiday Brunch in December

During fiscal year 16/17, the Boley Angels raised over $16,000.00 which helped them to provide new flooring at the Edna Stephens Group Home, provide quarterly contributions to help support the agency’s food pantry and staff bonuses.
