The Community Chest to Celebrate Spring With Gala Fundraiser, Coming Together as a Community, on May 3
(Englewood, New Jersey)--The Community Chest, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization serving Englewood, Englewood Cliffs and Tenafly, will hold the 2017 Annual Spring Gathering on Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 p.m. The annual event will take place at the Knickerbocker Country Club, located at 188 Knickerbocker Road, in Tenafly, New Jersey.
With the motto "Neighbors Helping Neighbors", The Chest's mission is to lead initiatives and support nonprofits that make communities stronger and benefit the people of eastern Bergen County in New Jersey. The event's net proceeds will go to meet the pressing issues of people in need in these communities.
This annual event welcomes The Community Chest's friends and supporters to an evening of fun and philanthropy. With the theme, “Coming Together as a Community”, the evening is designed to fulfill the mission of the organization’s founders more than 80 years ago. Their vision was to fill a chest with individuals and businesses' generous contributions and to empty its contents by awarding grant funds to support worthy projects led by local nonprofits in Englewood, Tenafly and Englewood Cliffs. Each year, The Community Chest carries out this mission with increased generosity to help people in need in these communities.
Master of Ceremonies Lori Stokes, Co-Anchor of Eye Witness News ABC TV, will officiate at the annual fundraising gala. A range of products will be available to bid upon in the silent and live auctions with noted auctioneer Nick Dawes from Antiques Road Show and VP of Collections at NY Heritage Auctions. The program features a performance by the Young People's Chorus @ Thurnauer.
The cost per ticket is $175 per patron, $250 for a benefactor, and $1,500 for a table of 10. Cocktails and a buffet dinner will be served. Registration may be completed online, www.thecommunitychestofenglewood.org, or by sending a check made out to The Community Chest, located at 122 South Van Brunt Street, Englewood, New Jersey 07631.
