SUMMIT, NJ - On Thursday, October 22nd, 2015, the Overlook Auxiliary proudly presents its biennial Kitchen Tour. This highly anticipated event will showcase six spectacular kitchens in the Summit area. All of the homes on the tour have been designed and decorated by some of the most elite architects, decorators, designers and builders in New Jersey.
Proceeds from this year’s tour will directly benefit the expansion of the Eating Disorders Program at the Overlook Goryeb Children’s Center to include children ages 8-12. This cutting edge facility currently is the only medically based eating disorders program in New Jersey to provide comprehensive treatment exclusively for adolescent patients, between the ages of 12 and 21 years, with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and related disorders as both inpatients and outpatients. The expansion of the program will allow Overlook to extend the program to even younger children struggling with this complex disorder.
“We are tremendously honored to co-chair the 2015 Kitchen Tour and promote awareness about the Eating Disorder Program at Overlook. Each home featured this year is unique and we are grateful for the generosity of homeowners, sponsors and Auxiliary volunteers, without whom the Tour would not be possible.” saud Laura Bojanowski and Christina Goulding, Co-Chairs of the 2015 Overlook Auxiliary Kitchen Tour
