WARREN, NJ - The Chelsea at Warren assisted living residence is launching a dinner-to-go fundraiser for Quaid Mobus, 21, nephew of a long tenured Chelsea employee, who was paralyzed following an accident on an all-terrain vehicle last September.
The latest in a series of fundraisers to help the Mobus family pay mounting medical bills, “Take it To Go for Our Hometown Bro” will offer a fabulous dinner for pick-up at the Chelsea on September 12 for a donation of $15. The dinner includes a choice of a Pulled Pork Sandwich or Barbeque Chicken with cole slaw, corn bread, potato salad, corn and dessert. The food will be prepared by The Chelsea’s outstanding head chef, Mike Nodine, and all proceeds will be donated to the cause.
Dinners may be ordered starting now, through September 5 by calling the Chelsea at (908) 903-0911. Specify your choice of entrée, then pick it up on September 12 at The Chelsea, 274 King George Road, Warren, between 4:30 and 7 p.m.
All proceeds benefit the Michael Bruce Fund supporting individuals with spinal cord injuries, including Quaid Mobus.
Quaid’s journey began last September, the evening before his sister was to be married, when his ATV hit an obstruction in the road, throwing him into a tree. His resulting paralysis and loss of a kidney began a series of surgeries and hospital stays that finally ended months later with his return home and the beginning of a “new normal” for him and his family. Funds are required to continue adapting his home to his motorized chair and other changes necessary to facilitate Quaid’s mobility, not to mention his ongoing medical needs.
