From our President
July 22, 2018
Dear Fellow CJCC Member,
Friday, August 10th CJCC will be holding the Rich 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 $5,000 in donations from
members and friends to help further the cause of TCF. This year we hope to surpass that amount. To help kick off this challenge, our club member, John G., has once again generously donated money
towards the purchase of CJCC cooler bags. These cooler bags 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 cooler bag 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 the evening of the event.
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 are Tax Deductible.
Donations should be made out by check payable to:
Tomorrows Children’s Fund
