Cheshire Home, a nonprofit 35-bed specialty care facility that helps adults with traumatic spinal cord injuries regain their maximum level of independence, will hold a 40th Anniversary Gala fundraiser this fall honoring four individuals for their tireless work on behalf of the disabled.
Tickets and sponsorships opportunities are now available for the gala dinner on Nov. 10 at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, where state Senator Jon Bramnick (R-21) will serve as the evening’s master of ceremonies. Bramnick holds the title “Funniest Lawyer in New Jersey” after winning contests sponsored by the bar association at Rascals Comedy Club, and he often donates his comedic services at events for nonprofit organizations.
The Cheshire Home’s honorees include Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-13); Merry Korn, CEO of Pearl Interactive Network, a contact center facilitating employment opportunities for people with barriers; spinal cord injury survivor John McAleavey, whose “QuadCast Podcast” highlights the triumphs of the disabled community; and Jeanine Valenti, NJ Director of THINKFIRST, who trains Voices for Injury Prevention speakers who present to teens in local high schools.
All funds raised go directly to supporting programs and services at Cheshire House in Florham Park. To view a short video about Cheshire Home and featuring a few of its residents, go here.
