MAPLEWOOD, NJ - All the members of The Maplewood Rotary Club wish to sincerely thank everyone who attended and supported its annual “Affair of the Heart” fundraiser held earlier this spring at the Maplewood Country Club.

More than 125 guests--Rotarians, their families and friends of Rotary--gathered for an evening of fine dining, dancing, live and silent auctions in support of the club’s Gift of Life project, which sponsors life-saving heart surgeries for children around the world and other “gifts of life” to children.

The Maplewood Rotary Club was not only honored to have presented its annual Citizenship Award to local resident and “super volunteer” Andrea Wren-Hardin, but to also to have had the amazing support of four principal sponsors this year:
