LIVINGSTON, NJ - On Tues. April 9, the Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club presented the St. Barnabas Neonatal Intensive Care unit (NICU) with a check for $26,000. The money will be used to purchase special equipment for the unit.
The Sunrise Rotary Club raised the $26,000 at its 9th Annual Food and Wine Tasting Event held at the Westminster Hotel this past January. The group has been dedicated to working with St. Barnabas NICU for nearly a decade and has raised over $140,000 to date.
“Without a doubt, the Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club is very generous to help those kids who might otherwise have passed away. We are so much indebted to them. The equipment means survival for these premature babies,” exclaimed Lou LaSalle, Director of External Affairs at St. Barnabas.
The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club looks to continue this tradition and will soon have a “save the date” notice for the 2014 Food and Wine Tasting Event.
Georgia Solotoff of Livingston based PIP Printing and member of Sunrise Rotary, spoke on behalf of her group saying, “we all agreed that if at the end of the day, we help one baby its worth it!”
The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club meets every Tuesday morning from 7:45 AM to 9:00 AM at Eppes Essen. Contact Monte Ehrenkranz at 973-716-0600 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
