There will be mini glow in the dark golf, basketball, soccer and arcade games. Children will have an opportunity to win door prizes.

For more information check the Foundation Web site at www.joansjoy.org or contact Rosemarie D'Alessandro at email@example.com or 201-664-9140.
The Foundation is set up in memory of Joan Angela D'Alessandro, the 7-year-old Brownie Scout who was assaulted and murdered by her next door neighbor. The goals of the Foundation, which is nonprofit, are to promote child safety and protection, advance victims' rights and help abused, homeless and neglected youth. Joan's legacy lives on through the Foundation.
The money raised from this event will go towards the Foundation's annual effort to provide Great Adventure season passes for the youth of the Passaic Teen Center and the Youth Haven in Paterson. It will be a great afternoon.
