Community program, Project Paulie, has announced a new partnership with the Seaport district to open a Bocce club. The space will open this Saturday May 13 and will remain open for three months, closing on August 13.
The Project Paulie Bocce Club will feature three outdoor bocce lanes. In addition, there will be a clubhouse onsite that sells Project Paulie Bocce Club merchandise. This exclusive gear will only be available in-person at the Clubhouse. It will include hats, bags, kits, sweatshirts, shorts, and t-shirts. A portion of all proceeds from bocce lane reservations will be donated to Project Bread, the leading anti-hunger organization in Massachusetts.
The Bocce Courts
The seaport explains in the official press release that the Bocce area “will feature green-and-white striped décor throughout and green neon-lit bocce lanes that add a monochromatic flair. Visitors can book one of two reservations-only lanes, or walk-up for a game on the one non-reservations lane.” No experience is needed to play. In fact, there will even be staff onsite to assist those who have never played.
Plus, you can make a day of your Seaport bocce experience. There will also be food onsite from Buenas. They serve hot dogs, veggie hot dogs, and emPAWnadas for dogs. Soft drinks will be available as well.
Where To Go
Project Paulie Bocce Club will be located at 88 Seaport Boulevard. It plans to be open seven days a week from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. Prices for an hour of play are $40 per lane. Up to four people are allowed per lane.
What is Project Paulie?
It was founded by Nicky Bandera during the early 2020 pandemic days. Being out of work, Bandera found herself cooking for friends, family, and neighbors each day. As a result, she would bake lasagnas for those who were in need of some cheer and a hot meal. Soon, she had sent over 2,000 lasagnas to people in need. Bandera had the support of a core group of friends and her surrounding community, too. They often helped sponsor and deliver the care packages. “The support she received allowed her to support others. That’s how “we feed each other, and that’s how Project Paulie was born,” she states.
Finally, through certain partnerships and initiatives, Project Paulie can align their efforts to relative charitable organizations like Project Bread.
“We’re excited to announce another fun way to support these impactful organizations through a nostalgic game of bocce,” Project Paulie founder, Nicky Bandera concludes.
