Palm Beach County, FL Chapter
Chapter Co-President, Bobbi Rini
Born and raised in Cleveland, I moved to Boynton Beach, FLin 1996. I've been a hair colorist since 1962 and formally retired a few years ago to"nanny" my grandson Jake, now 8. My only child Kristy, her husband Ralph and Jake live nearby in Boca Raton.
While still working full time, I happened to see Pajama Program's founder, Genevieve Piturro, on The Oprah Winfrey Show and though I had no idea I was looking for something more, I immediately was "hooked"! At that time, the Palm Beach Chapter was in its infancy, and I have been fortunate to have been a part of its growth. I'm currently Co-President, along with Mary Stout. In addition, as Palm Beach County Receiving Organization Coordinator, I am in charge of filling and delivering New PJs and New Books to our local recipients.I am thrilled to be a part of this worthwhile cause!
Chapter Co-President, Mary Stout
I’ve been associated with the organization for a little more than a year. I had become recently retired and when I first became aware of Pajama Program (on the Meredith Vieira Show), it struck a cord. I felt that I needed to know more about it and see how I could get involved. I had been looking for something in which I could feel useful. I had volunteered in a hospital for several months before that, but that was not really filling the need. Pajama Program filled that void. Not only do I love the cause, the group of volunteers that we have been lucky enough to assemble, are the best. We all feel so deeply about the welfare and happiness of all children.
My past work history has been primarily in sales, most recently as an Aftermarket Inside Sales Rep for a large equipment manufacturer.
I am the lucky mother of 3 amazing ladies and the grandma for 6 beautiful grandchildren. Originally from Minnesota, we relocated in the mid 1970’s, and, although there is no one like the Midwest people, I love living in Florida very much.
I spend my leisure time by playing tennis 3-4 times a week and spending time with family and friends, along with spoiling my grandkids!
