FANWOOD, NJ – Enchantments co-hosted a holiday networking event with Two River Community Bank at their craft store on 234 South Ave. in downtown Fanwood on Thurs., Dec. 3 featuring local business owners and residents in attendance while raising hundreds of dollars for the non-profit Summit Animal Rescue Association (SARA).

“Jeffrey Schneider (of Two River Community Bank) did an outstanding job planning the event and I couldn’t have been happier on the turnout,” said Helen Ling, owner of Enchantments, a retailer offering a wide-variety of unique jewelry and crafts. “I’ve known of the good work that SARA does for many years and it was great to be able to raise some money for their cause.”
