The Golden Girlpower Raffle is an NJSFWC sponsored raffle and is a 50/25/25 raffle with two chances to win a cash prize. Proceeds from the sale of the tickets will benefit projects and events of our upcoming Mid Atlantic Region (MAR) Conference and NJSFWC!

There will be 300 raffle tickets sold at $ 50.00 per ticket. Anticipated sales yield $15,000.00. The total is split 50% to MAR/NJSFWC ($7,500.00) and the other 50% ($7,500.00) is split between two winners ($3,750.00 each).

The raffle drawing will be held at the MAR Conference on Saturday night September 17th 2011. You need not be present to win.

The “fun” part – you have two chances to win! Two drawings for the lucky ticket! The odds of winning are better than the Lottery or any casino game.

Tickets are available for sale by contacting the NJSFWC Headquarters at 732-249-5474 or Jane Pullaro at 201-337-0018. It could be your lucky day!

GCI Celebrating 65 years!


This is the 65th year that the NJSFWC is sponsoring Girls Career Institute(GCI), which will be held June 13-16th at Douglass Residential College on the Rutgers University Campus.

GCI is an annual program sponsored by the NJSFWC for high school Junior girls to explore women’s issues and encourage awareness to contemporary problems. Delegates are sponsored and the cost is underwritten by a local NJSFWC club. Delegates are selected on the basis of interest, community service and participation in school activities.

Delegates experience a 'mini college' experience by living in a dorm, eating in a cafeteria, attending lectures and workshops. They will learn about career choices from volunteer professional speakers and how to network with other delegates from all over the state of New Jersey.

Clubwomen volunteer their time to act as housemothers for each wing. A nurse is on duty at all times. Over 185 girls will participate in this experience each year.
