Jon Bon Jovi To Attend 
Heart of Camden Gala

Camden, NJ – The Heart of Camden Gala Committee is pleased to announce it will present the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation with the “Small Things with Great Love” award and its Chairman Jon Bon Jovi will be on-hand to accept it. Other Camden community partners of the Soul Foundation will also attend this year’s event.

The gala will take place on December 2, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill.

Monsignor Michael J. Doyle was the recipient of the “Small Things Great Love” award last year which recognizes the powerful impact of extending a helping hand to those in need and acknowledges the difference seemingly small things can make in a person’s life.  The work of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation in Camden is in keeping with this theme and focuses on the importance of helping the community, “one soul at a time.”

Jon Bon Jovi’s interest in Camden began in early 2000 when he became acutely aware of the city’s needs and pledged the help of his Foundation to assist with a variety of projects throughout the city. Projects included building a house for young adults in north Camden, rehabilitating houses in the east and south sections of the city and cleaning up blighted lots in the center of the city, all with the goal of providing decent housing and
improving the lives of the people of Camden.

According to Helene Pierson Executive Director of The Heart of Camden, Inc., the Jon Bovi Soul Foundation arrived in Camden at a critical time. “The economy was spiraling downward and the need for family support and housing in particular, was at an all-time high,” she said. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Jon will attend our event and allow us to recognize the outstanding work done by his Foundation,” Pierson added.

Last year’s gala raised $200,000 in support of the Community Center/Gymnasium in South Camden which will open in early December.
