Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest New Jersey (JVS) held its annual Taste and Toast fundraising gala on June 21 at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange to personally thank those who continuously perform at the highest level to carry out the JVS mission of “Helping People to Help Themselves.” This year, the event raised $350,000 to improve the life-enhancing services that the nonprofit, community-based health and human service organization provides to its diverse clientele.

Among the event honorees was Ed Walsh, Principal and Managing Director of Avison Young's Morristown office. As a highly respected professional in the construction and real estate industries, Walsh assisted the organization with its recent move and helped find a new, modern location that would better serve its clientele. Walsh was initially drawn to the organization by the services that it provides to help individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) gain employment in the community.
