#HipNJ’s Gina Cerniglia attended the Golden Glove event where fighter duke it out for a great cause.
#JamesGandolifini had also supported this wonderful charity and Gina goes behind the scenes to chat with employee from IBEW Local 164, Keith Misciagna (former councilmen) about their signature charity, Project Grandma and Breast Cancer Research
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers sought to obtain an improved way of life for electrical linesmen whose death rate was one of every two hired. Without apprenticeship programs and safety standards, pioneering linesmen and electricians risked their lives for a mere 15 to 20 cents an hour. Founded in 1901, in Paramus, NJ, Local 164 remains dedicated to the IBEW’s original objective and programs to make life better for its members and those around them.
Gina was lucky enough to speak with the one and only Heart of a Champion Award Recipient, martial arts trainer & breast cancer survivor, Danielle Lenardo. She tells #HipNJ about her prestigious award & gives her advice for those fighting this cancer.
