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 17/18, the Boley Angels raised over $21,000.00.  These funds helped the to contribute to Boley Centers in the following ways:

  •  The Angels provided quarterly disbursements for the agency’s food pantry which helps individuals and families who are being served through Boley’s homeless supported housing program.
  • The Angels contributed funds to help with unmet dental needs of Boley’s clients.
  • The Angels contributed funds toward the purchase of a 20′ x 20′ tent for agency fundraising events.
