BJ’s makes donation to three local charities

The BJ’s Charitable Foundation recently presented donations totaling $20,000 to three local nonprofit organizations: CrossOver Ministries’ eyeglass and vision program, FeedMore’s mobile pantry and the Children’s Museum of Richmond’s Book Nook literacy program. The check presentations took place Sept. 11 at BJ’s Wholesale Club on Starling Drive in Henrico.

Pictured with the CrossOver check are (from left): Carlie Cross, BJ’s regional acquisition retention manager; Kyra Dillard Wright, vision program manager; Julie Bilodeau, director of operations; and Lynn Williams, development manager. The check will benefit the eyeglass project, which includes pre-screening and evaluations of low-income
individuals with vision needs, a medical visit to check basic health, a voucher to receive eyeglasses at BJ’s Wholesale Club, and a follow-up evaluation and survey.

The BJ’s Charitable Foundation grants funds quarterly to organizations where BJ’s clubs are located. The Foundation chooses organizations that provide critical services and programs focusing on hunger prevention, self-sufficiency, healthcare and education, which is the company’s giving focus.

Entertainment

Good food and fun, bargain prices

Pelon’s serves up a good mix of variety, value

I first stumbled into Pelon's on a Wednesday night, lured by the promise of $2 tacos and beers. At those prices, I had assumed the place was a hole in the wall, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, pleasant interior.

Having spent my teen summers in Virginia Beach surfing, I also felt instantly at home amid the ocean-themed decor. From the ride-the-waves posters lining the walls and the TV displaying non-stop surfing footage, to the foosball table and enormous spools serving as tables, Pelon's is a delight for beach lovers and surfing fans. Reading the menu is part of the entertainment here, as patrons browse burrito choices that include Rip Tide, The Curl, Hawaiian Pipeline and Big Kahuna. > Read more.
