CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY – The Camden County Bar Foundation’s (CCBF) annual Children’s Holiday Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 12 Noon. The party will take place at the Boys & Girls Club of Camden County located at 2 S. Dudley Street, Camden, NJ. Over 200 less fortunate children from the City of Camden will attend.
Beginning at 9 a.m., busses will start unloading our special guests for a full breakfast provided by Chick-Fil-A, followed by a few magical hours of fun, gifts and a visit with Santa. A cast of volunteer attorneys and judges, many in holiday and elf costumes, will lead a carol-sing to get everyone in the holiday spirit. The children will be treated to a magic show before Santa (aka retired Judge Stephen M. Holden) touches down with his sleigh full of goodies. Every child will have a chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas and then be sent off with a photo, wrapped gift and stocking stuffers.
The legal profession is about helping people. The Camden County Bar Foundation was created in 1986 to help meet that aspiration. For over 30 years, our mission has been to help meet the needs of those less fortunate as well as foster a greater understanding of our legal system. Backed by the volunteer efforts of many dedicated members, this charitable arm of the Camden County Bar Association is helping to strengthen our communities, and our commitment is making a difference.
In addition to sponsoring this annual holiday event, the CCBF annually provides numerous college scholarships as well as sponsors its own community service projects including:
• A Golf Outing to benefit The First Tee of Philadelphia;
• Financial support for New Jersey Veterans Haven of Camden County;
• Annual Lobster Bake to benefit the Larc School for disabled children in Bellmawr;
