RARITAN TWP., NJ – Organizers of the annual Stanton Holly Trail recently presented two checks totaling $38,000 to Hunterdon Healthcare CEO Robert Wise to Benefit Briteside Adult Day Center and Stanton Reformed Church co-pastor Phil Pratt to benefit the church's Stanton Cancer Care Fund and other community outreach programs.

Those checks bring Stanton Holly Trail's lifetime donation amount to $1 million.

“Reaching the $1 million mark is so exciting,” said Cindi Troegner, Chairwoman of Holly Trail. “When eight women started Holly Trail 56 years ago, I don't think they ever imagined Holly Trail raising $1 million. I am so proud to be part of this legacy.”

Like many members of Holly Trail, Troegner is a second generation member. Started in 1962, Stanton Holly Trail is New Jersey's longest running house tour.

The $19,000 donated to Briteside Adult Day Center through the Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation “will make Briteside more of a home for the clients than it already is,” according to Wise. “The recognition of the value of Briteside is growing.”

The $19,000 donated to Stanton Reformed Church will be used for community outreach and facility upkeep, according to Pratt. A portion of the money will be used to fund the Stanton Cancer Care fund which helps families battling cancer bridge the gap insurance often leaves.

“We are excited for the mission you have made possible,” Pratt told the gathered Holly Trail members. “The Cancer Care fund is close to our hearts and needs. The impact it has already made in the community is a wonderful gift.”

The Stanton Cancer Care Fund was started to help co-pastor Becky Pratt in her battle against cancer and has since expanded to help anyone in Hunterdon County battling cancer.

Each year, Holly Trail features five homes elaborately decorated for Christmas with hand-made ornaments and abundant fresh greens. Most homes feature two Christmas trees festooned with hand-crafted ornament or precious family heirlooms from the home owner's own collections.

“We always try to let the personality of the homeowners shine through,” said Troegner. “It makes each house unique and gives the decorating committee a direction.”

“We are grateful to our patrons who make us part of their holiday tradition year after year,” said Troegner.

The 2018 Holly Trail will be Saturday, Dec. 1 and the Candlelight Champagne tour will be Friday, Nov. 30. For more information please visit its website.
