Beloved Community Celebration will be held October 22 at The Kolo Klub

HOBOKEN, N.J., Oct. 1, 2015 – The Jubilee Center of Hoboken will honor Greg Dell’Aquila, chief executive officer and president of Mission 50 Workspaces, among other community leaders at the organization’s 12th annual Beloved Community Celebration. The fundraising gala, which recognizes business leaders whose work helps sustain the psychological, physical and social health of the community, will take place on Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 7 p.m. at The Kolo Klub, 1422 Grand Street in Hoboken.

The Jubilee Center provides a year round safe haven to vulnerable children in the Hudson County area, working with local public schools to supplement their educational needs and offering programming that expands each child’s vision, creativity and experiences. “Each of our honorees demonstrates that even one person can be an effective agent for change,” said David Shehigian, the center’s executive director. “Recognizing them highlights their character and achievements, and serves as inspiration and motivation to others to become community champions themselves.”

Under Dell’Aquila’s leadership, Mission 50 Workspaces has established itself as Hoboken’s premier shared office environment for small businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers. His relationship with the Jubilee Center began through his civic involvement in the Rotary Club, which supported many of the center’s efforts including starting an after-school program. He later established the Small Business for Education Foundation in an effort to raise funds specifically to support at-risk youth.

“The Jubilee Center was our first recipient,” said Dell’Aquila. “When I heard about their goal to create a program that would hire local high school students to teach and look after the younger kids, I jumped at the chance to provide funding. I am proud that the fund’s support was instrumental to the successful launch of the Jubilee Youth Summer Employment Program.”

Tickets for the Jubilee Center gala are $250 per person and can be purchased online at www.jubileecenterhoboken.org. In addition to Dell’Aquilla, this year’s honorees include Joe Mindak of hMAG, the online magazine, and Helen Manogue, president of the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy.For more information about the event and sponsorship opportunities, call (201) 792-0340.

The Jubilee Center also organizes a yearly summer camp for its children.
Studies have shown that after-school programs lower obesity rates, reduce drug use and improve academic performance and school attendance.
