MADISON, NJ - Mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 24 at 5 p.m. 

Madison’s Mayor Robert Conley and a team of players made up of borough members, the Madison Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance Corp and residents will participate in Quest Diagnostics’ fifth annual Charity Softball Game and Barbecue at Dodge Field in Madison. 

Steve Rusckowski, chief executive officer, and the employees of Quest Diagnostics will compete against the mayor’s team.  Rumor has it that Quest has tentatively secured London 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist in rowing, Esther Lofgren, to play on their team.

“Thank goodness the Madison Ambulance Corp will be there to back us up,” said Councilman Robert Landrigan. 

Last year the event raised over $5,000. This year all proceeds will benefit The American Cancer Society and Project Community Pride which is committed to counseling children and families who have become involved with the law due to minor infarctions.  For 30 years, PCP has been a 30 year advocate in providing intervention, protection and fostering strength within children and families at risk.

The event promises a spirit of community, a healthy competition and fun. Music will be provided by the Group Therapy Band.

“Our band is ready to rock and roll and bring some high energy to Dodge Field,” said Mark Fabyanski, drummer for the band and a Madison resident.  “I’m really excited about helping in any way that I can, and I think it’s a great fundraiser.  I hope it’s the first of many,” he said.

Support is most welcome in a number of ways – advertise in the ‘Game Day Program’, donate raffle items and come to the game to support the players.  For more information or to make a donation, you can reach out to Gary Stenftenagel at (973) 520-2819.  Rain date for the event is Wednesday, Aug. 14.
