Garden State Holiday Reception
Our national trophy! L to R, Rep. Norcross, Nancy Fatemi, NJSS President Donise Cameron (PSEG), Reps. Pascrell and Lance
Thanks to everyone who made our NJ State Society and NJ Group 2011 Garden State Holiday Reception a great success. If you missed it, take a minute to glance at the photos taken by Chuck Divine.
We had over 125 guests in spite of the torrential downpour and a very busy Congressional session night. We deeply appreciated the attendance of both Senator Lautenberg and Menendez. as well as Congressmen Lance and Holt, and former Congressman Bill Hughes.
Through our silent auction, we raised $500 for the Community FoodBank of NJ, and greatly appreciated the item contributions from Caesar's and the NJ Devils, among others.
Complimentary appetizers and cocktails were offered, and plenty of Garden State camaraderie and networking opportunities. (See our great list of sponsoring NJ firms below). And, wow, Chris's Cookies of Teterboro donated a grand variety of their delicious cookies for our enjoyment.
We also collected new, unwrapped toys and cash/check contributions for the Children's Specialized Hospital of Mountainside, NJ.
In addition to the NJ Group, we also thank our other sponsors:
Atlantic City Electric
HealthCare Institute of NJ
Johnson & Johnson
Washington Strategic Consulting
