From our President
July 19, 2017
Dear Fellow CJCC Member,
Friday, August 4th marks the date of the Rick Shanahan Memorial Benefit Drive for Tomorrows Children’s Fund. This is where we gather together in front of the Somerset County Court House in downtown Somerville displaying our Corvettes together with members of Tomorrows Children’s Fund to help raise money for this worthwhile cause.
The Tomorrows Children’s Fund was founded by a group of committed parents to help their children and others like them with cancer and serious blood disorders. With the help of friends like the Central Jersey Corvette Club, today, TCF provides a warm, healthy and loving environment for children in treatment; a full scope of services to relieve families’ emotional and financial stress; the very best possible medical care; and funding for research on these diseases. All of which confirms the belief that through hope, hard work and heartfelt generosity, extraordinary things are possible.
Last year, the Central Jersey Corvette Club raised over $4,200 in donations from members and friends to help further the cause of TCF. This year we are setting a goal of $4,500. To help kick off this challenge, our club member, John Gendelman, has once again generously donated money towards the purchase of CJCC Travel Mugs. These travel mugs will be used as a way to encourage our members to be extra generous with their donations this year, although any amount that you can afford is always greatly appreciated by TCF to continue on with their mission. Members who donate $100.00 or more will receive a CJCC Travel Mug as a sign of appreciation for your generosity. A minimum of a $25 donation is requested in order to park in front of the Court House.
I am appealing to our members for your continued support to help us beat the goal that we have set for ourselves this year. If you are planning to attend the Somerville event, you can drop off your donation that evening, otherwise you can mail it in or bring it to the August meeting.
Donations should be made out by check payable to:
Tomorrows Children’s Fund
PO Box 384
Flemington, NJ 08822-0384
Please join me in Somerville on Friday, August 4th at 5:00PM as we unite to help TCF continue to fulfill their mission.
Acting President, CJCC
