CPC hosted its “Bermuda Nights” Benefit on July 28, 2017 at Navesink Country Club in Middletown, and successfully raised funds for important services throughout Monmouth County. The event was full of enthusiastic supporters taking part in the Wine Wheel, multiple gift auctions and listening and dancing to Bobby Bandiera.
Co-chairs of the event, Tom Duffy, CFP of Oceanport and Marie Noglows of Fair Haven expressed their gratitude to everyone who came out to benefit CPC and that they were “honored to lead this important effort to raise funds to provide counseling services that will give people in our community an opportunity for hope and recovery.”
The night honored the important community achievements of both businesses and individuals, including Raymond Eckhoff, Rumson; Cowan, Gunteski & Co., P.A., Tinton Falls and Toms River; Two River Community Bank, Tinton Falls; and Lori and Jim Romer, Howell. All the honorees humbly accepted the well-deserved recognition and reinforced the importance of CPC’s mission is helping the community.
Ray Eckhoff, recipient of the “Community Service Award” and Chair-Elect of CPC’s Board of Trustees spoke about the responsibility of the public to come out and support important causes. Ray spoke of his own early involvement with local non-profit organizations and realizing that it was his duty to step up and help organizations like CPC provide vital services to the community.
The evening also honored four long-time Trustees for over a century of collective service, some beginning at the very inception of CPC. Lois Broder, Shrewsbury; Alfred Ferguson, Rumson; A. Van. R. Halsey, Rumson; and Bruce Larsen, Ph.D., Point Pleasant, were recognized and thanked for their many years of commitment and dedication.
