Development Committee Kick-Off
On Thursday January 15, 2015, board members, staff, and friends of CarePlus attended a dinner party at Sanzari's New Bridge Inn in New Milford to celebrate the creation of the new Development Committee. Guests were asked to volunteer to help the Advocacy and Community Education (ACE) team in planning and executing the biggest fundraising events of the year.

The 17th Annual Courage Awards Gala is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3rd at The Venetian in Garfield. The first few months of the Development Committee meetings will focus on organizing the Gala. There are many factors that go into making this event a success, and more help means less stress!
Volunteers will be needed for the auction, the decoration committee, finding sponsorships, constructing the journal, and conducting the scholarship process. This event takes a lot of energy, but it comes together beautifully and is very rewarding for all involved.
Later in the year the Development Committee will switch gears to work on planning the 4th Annual Golfers Give Back Charity Outing - scheduled to take place on Monday, September 21st at Edgewood County Club in River Vale.
Once again, volunteers will be needed for the auctions, in finding sponsorships, and in putting together "Goodie Bags" for participants of the Golf Outing. There are also a number of small, general tasks that will require extra hands - so even if you cannot commit to a big project, we can still use your help!
The first Development Committee meeting will be held in Paramus on February 3rd at 6 pm. This is the perfect opportunity to become more involved in our organization and to contribute to these incredible community events. If you, or someone you know, would like to be a part of the Development Committee please contact the ACE team by sending to the *ACE e-mail list.
