BRIDGEWATER, NJ - One week from today, the Raise Your Glass Spring Gala will be held at 7 p.m. at the Bridgewater Marriott.
The event includes five-hour open bar, silent auction/basket raffle, live band, cocktail hour with passed hors d'oeuvres, sit down dinner featuring filet mignon with all proceeds benefiting Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. Look for the complete list of raffle items to be leaked this week. Two iPad minis and a $300 gift certificate to The Modern Restaurant in New York were just the latest addition.
Nearly one year ago, the Foundation hosted a Winter Gala that allowed for a $45,000 donation to be made to Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. Additionally, the Reece Leggitt-Raise Your Glass Foundation Golf Classic held in October 2013, allowed for a $20,000 donation to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Adam Yenish, Founding Member and Chairman of the Raise Your Glass Foundation said, "Once again, we ask for your support in attending our Spring Gala in March, as proceeds will be donated to this extraordinary institution. Please know that this money will help countless children receive state-of-the-art healthcare and the same chance at leading an independent life that my son, AJ, has been given."
Our organization is made up of extraordinary volunteers that are committed to carrying out our charity’s mission," Yenish said. "If you are interested in joining our team, volunteering your time leading up to the event, and/or giving your time the night of the Gala, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
