Portraits by Michael Stahl Studio Supports South Mountain YMCA

September, 2017— One of the missions of Portraits by Michael Stahl is to support meaningful causes and has done so since their inception 15 years ago. This black and white portrait studio in downtown Montclair is contributing to two fantastic charity events both scheduled for September 18!

The first event is the Metro YMCA of the Oranges’ 23rd Annual Golf Tournament that will take place at the Montclair Golf Club and will raise money for the financial assistance fund for the South Mountain YMCA and the Metro Y’s five other branches. “The money we raise will provide children and families in need access to programs that foster wellness and community involvement,” said Metro YMCA Chief Development Officer Lisa Kelly. Since 1994, the tournament has raised more than $1.5 million.

The second event to which they are contributing is the 2017 Iron Skillet Cook Off in New York City on September 18, 2017. This philanthropic competition pairs five firehouse chefs, one from each borough, with five restaurant chefs. The firehouse chefs will take a signature recipe and the restaurant chef will collaborate to add their culinary flair and elevate the dish to competition level. The five teams will present their creations to our panel of celebrity judges and compete for the vaunted Iron Skillet®. This exciting annual event raises funds and awareness for World Cares Center.

December 11, 2017

Compared to a cartoonish image of a cow with a big butt‎, I'm much more offended by Ms. Tingle's baseless smear of the President of the United States as a "sexual predator." I assume because she didn't name him and he's a public figure, it's OK to publish what otherwise would be considered libel.
