BARRINGTON NJ (May 15, 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--Join a wine and painting party to promote play in Barrington on June 1 at the Barrington VFW Senior Community Center from 6:30-10PM.  Couples are welcome.

Proceeds of this painting party, expertly led by Canvas Mixers of Collingswood, will support the Wish Upon a Star Playground in Barrington, and the Boy Scouts of America in Camden County.  Tickets are available for $45 per person.  The Barrington VFW is located at 109 Shreve Avenue, Barrington.

Participants are encouraged to BYOB.  Light refreshments will be provided.  A Basket Auction will also be held immediately before the painting begins.  One sheet of tickets is included in the admission price, additional sheets of tickets are $20.

The Wish Upon a Star Playground is currently being reconstructed as an inclusive playground and only the second one in the County.  Different activity zones are being provided for three different age groups of any ability.  The Kiwanis Club of the Haddons has pledged $5000 towards the reconstruction in addition to providing an OmniSpin spinner.  Barrington has also received Community Development Block Grants towards the reconstruction.

The White Horse District of the Garden State Council, Boy Scouts of America, serves over 4000 youth in Camden County.  One of the three aims of the scouting program is the development of physical, mental and emotional fitness. Providing community financial support for this playground is important to serving the mission.
