College donates video board to nearby Foley Field

Prominent members of the Bloomfield College and local communities gathered to continue the expansion of their growing relationship on Jan. 29, as the institution presented the Foley Field Foundation, Inc. with a donation check to be used for the purchase of a digital message board during a midday event at the Bloomfield Civic Center.

Set to be located at the historic athletic complex, the College presented Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia and Foundation President Michael Napolitano with a donation of $35,000 at the conclusion of the proceedings, putting the institution’s stamp on the home field of the school's men's and women's soccer programs.

“We are so grateful to our friends at Bloomfield College for making this contribution to the renovations of Foley Field,” Venezia said during his remarks.  “I know what this place means to our Township, and to have the College donate to this cause is wonderful.  Hopefully this is the start of many more great things to come from this partnership.”

"The Foley Field Foundation salutes Bloomfield College for their substantial and continuing investment in the infrastructure of Bloomfield,” Mike Napolitano said.  “This Message Board not only represents an additional iconic upgrade to the complex, but also serves as a valuable communications and marketing resource to the Bloomfield community at large. We thank the institution for making this donation possible as part of our ongoing mission to ‘Restore the Glory’ at our beloved Foley Field".

Debuting in the spring of 2014, the message board will be displayed on the back of the Foley Field press box, overlooking John F. Kennedy Drive.  With full-color display and the ability to air text, graphics, photos and videos, the advancement will allow the College to help put the finishing touches on the facility’s extensive upgrades.

“Working in concert, we can be partners in helping our community grow,” Levao said in his closing remarks.  “I believe this is only the beginning of us working together to positively impact our surrounding area.”
