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.
