MICKELTON, N.J. — The Wicked Warriors of East Greenwich have a mission of making a difference in their communities through the sport of Dragon Boat Racing and empowering women by conducting fundraisers for charitable causes benefitting women and their families.
CASA of CGS (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties), an organization whose volunteers speak for foster children who don’t have a voice and advocate their well-being, found favor with Wicked Warriors and as a result Wicked Warriors donated $22,000 to the organization.
“I’m speechless,” said CASA program coordinator Jennifer Henderson. “It’s incredible what the warriors have done for the children in our communities. We are blown away by the generosity! We love using the give a child hope fund to make sure the kids we serve have things.”
Danielle Delmonaco is the acting President of Wicked Warriors and Deneen Mulhern is the Vice President and has been serving with Wicked Warriors for several years; Mulhern says there’s no feeling like helping others give back to their communities.
“The recipients are always so grateful and that feels amazing,” said Mulhern.
Also, Wicked Warriors members serve to promote the recreational health benefits and competition of Dragon Boat racing; they go to Independence Dragon Boat Regatta annually for friendly competition, and this year will be no different.
