BJ’s Wholesale Club, in partnership with the Ocean Pines Association, raised $375 for the Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines as a part of its recent membership offer.
BJ’s donated $5 of each membership fee paid as a part of the promotion to the foundation in addition to offering special benefits for new and renewing members. Close to 70 people participated in the offer, making such a large donation possible.
Teresa Travatello, director of Marketing and Public Relations for Ocean Pines, presented the check to Veterans Memorial President Mary Adair at the organization’s volunteer appreciation party on Dec. 3.
Area residents who missed the fall BJ’s promotion will have the opportunity to participate in the next promotion, which will occur in the spring of 2015.
