Kristen Hutchins and her children, Rocket and Vega Hutchins, of Montclair were among 300 guests who attended Imagine’s 6th annual breakfast fundraiser, Seasons of Hope, on June 8th, 2017 at Shackamaxon Country Club in Scotch Plains.
“The event raised funds for Imagine to start a fifth Night of Support this fall serving bereaved children and families, and to expand our education and outreach programs in the community” said Dr. Jennifer Simpson of Westfield, Imagine Treasurer and member of the Board of Trustees. "We especially want to thank the Glasser Foundation for offering an incredibly generous matching grant in the amount of $50,000; our event sponsors, ConnectOne Bank and Northfield Bank, as well as the many businesses and individuals that contributed in support of the breakfast.”
