On Monday, May 11, every Bingo player will receive a complimentary slice of pizza and a drink during the introductory special. While the special is only available during the opening night of Bingo, refreshments will be available for purchase each week.

In 2014, the JCC awarded more than $210,000 in scholarship assistance to underprivileged individuals and families so that they can participate in events and attend the Blaustein Early Childhood Center and JCC Camp Ruach. The JCC Camp and Preschool Scholarship Program make it possible for children to participate in JCC activities that they could not otherwise afford. Funds also support services to seniors including a hot lunch, exercise, entertainment and socialization and to families and individuals who require assistance for membership and for special needs programming. Scholarship assistance is provided to all who demonstrate financial need, regardless of race, creed, or color.

The Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center is located at 775 Talamini Road in Bridgewater.  The JCC is a social service agency that serves Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties, providing fitness, recreational, social, cultural and educational programs for the entire community.  The state-of-the-art facility includes an indoor salt based pool, outdoor heated pool with dome enclosure during the off season, gymnasium, fitness center, group fitness studio featuring the Les Mills fitness program. The JCC is home to the Bridgewater Tide Swim Team, J-Crew After School Program (Grades K-6) and Summer Swim Club.  For additional information, visit the JCC website at www.ssbjcc.org

It's great that the scholarship program helps so many kids in so many ways. It's also cool that it benefits seniors that visit the center. If you're in need of assistance, this could be a great program that would help you in many ways. I never applied for any scholarships while in school, and I wish I had. I hope that this program continues for many years in the future. http://www.rosenjcc.org/jcc-orlando

Thanks for sharing this! It is so cool to see the JCC raising money for scholarships. Plus, bingo is a great way to have some family fun, especially if you go with friends! In fact, I should probably start looking around in my area for a JCC. It would be nice to connect with other people there! <a href='http://www.rosenjcc.org/jcc-orlando' > http://www.rosenjcc.org/jcc-orlando</a>
