The Members, staff and Board of Trustees of Opportunity Project are proud to announce that this year, BlueJean Day for Brain Brain Injury Awareness Month ProclamationInjury Awareness month raised of $30,00 — our highest amount ever!  We were excited to have many longstanding companies and several new companies partner with us in this year’s event.

We launched brain injury awareness month on March 6 with Mayor Sandra Haimoff of Millburn who issued a proclamation declaring March 2013 as Brain Injury Awareness Month at the Clubhouse.  We were thrilled to have our Members, their families, Opportunity Project Board Members and our community partners join us for the kick-off.

We held two new events on March 13, Congressional Brain Injury Awareness Day at Rockn’ Joe of Millburn and FlyWheel Millburn.  Opportunity Project Members spent the day at Rockn’ Joe providing their customers with  information about brain injury, facts about concussion and tips on prevention.  We also held our first “Spin For Brain Injury” event at FlyWheel Millburn raising $1,400 for Opportunity Project.

The fun and energy didn’t stop there.  California Pizza Kitchen also joined in by hosting our 2nd Brain Injury Awareness FUNraiser at their Short Hills Mall location on March 21.  Members from the Opportunity Project Speakers Bureau gave a presentation to the team at Greenberg Traurig for a lunch and learn as part of their Brain Injury Awareness Day.  Collectively, the staff at Greenberg Traurig raised $2,950 for Opportunity Project.  Afterwards, the Speakers Bureau stopped in at Investors Millburn to visit their staff and customers for their Brain Injury Awareness day.  In addition to being a Main Event Sponsor for BlueJean Day 2013, the Investors Millburn team collected an additional $450 from their customers and employees.

We could not have done all of this without the generous support of all of our sponsors and donors.  Thank you to everyone for helping to ensure that BlueJean Day 2013 was a tremendous success.  To see pictures from all of our activities, please visit our Facebook page.
