CHATHAM, NJ – Nicole Woody, wife of New York Jets’ offensive linebacker Damien Woody, addressed the Chatham Chamber of Commerce and the Madison Chamber of Commerce at their monthly meeting on Tuesday morning, October 12, 2010, at Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse in Chatham.  Ms. Woody said that it is important to be involved in the community and discussed her foundation, PROS, People Reaching Out to Someone. 

“Chatham is home for us.  We love it here,” Nicole Woody told the members of the Chambers.  She said that she and Damien met in 10thgrade and have been together ever since.  The couple now has six kids, three dogs, and a cat.

Woody’s foundation, PROS, is holding an event with the Robinhood Foundation to raise funds to fight poverty in the tri-state area on Monday, November 29, 2010 at 7 p.m. at The Pierre, 2 East 61stStreet in New York.  The event will feature a fun fashion show and will include three hundred guests including members of the New York Jets, philanthropists, celebrities and more.  Ticket prices will range from $250 to $2,500+.  Sponsorship of the event, ranging from $250 to $10,000, is also available.  For more information, contact Mike Williams at mike@iphilanthropy.com or 760-209-4031.

Prior to Ms. Woody’s talk to the Chambers, Executive Director of the Chatham Chamber, Carolyn Cherry, said that it is critical for businesses to be involved in the community, to increase credibility and name recognition.  Cheryl Smith, President of the Chatham Chamber, encouraged businesses “to get involved in the community and become active members of the Chamber.”

Dr. Allison Hurley, a dentist from Chatham, is an example of a member of the business community who is very active in the community.  She spoke about her efforts to supply candy, beanie babies and notes to our troops through Operation Gratitude.  She said that on November 1st and 2nd from 3-5 p.m. at her office located at 585 Main Street in Chatham, children can bring in Halloween candy and receive $1 per pound for the candy, through a candy buyback program.  For more information about Operation Gratitude, visit www.operationgratitude.com
