Jennifer Lopez Tapped For Boys & Girls Spokeswoman

Actress/Singer Jennifer Lopez has been named the first spokeswoman for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the organization said Monday. Lopez will join Denzel Washington, who has been the celebrity face for the organization for the past 18 years. President of the “stars to join club,” Roxanne Spillett spoke to reporters about the merits of the organization Tuesday at Nokia Plaza in Los Angeles. “By inviting fellow-alumnus Jennifer Lopez to join him as national spokesperson, Denzel is expanding this key role to two people for the first time in the organization’s 104-year history,” the group said in a news release. “The announcement commemorates the 20th anniversary of the organization’s name change from ‘Boys Clubs’ to ‘Boys & Girls Clubs of America,’ marking the expansion of the mission to reach all young people in need.”
