GARDNER — New England Peptide recently held the 2nd annual Cornhole Tournament to benefit the Boys & Girls Club’s Gardner clubhouse, leading to a donation of $9,578.
“A great time was had by all. The weather was perfect,” said Donata Martin, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fitchburg, Leominster and Gardner. “The donation will be used for supporting financial assistance for after-school membership and summer program fees, as well as program supplies and field trip transportation.”
