United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties’ (UWMOC) Women United is hosting Casino Royale on Friday, October 4, 2019 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club located at 20 Shore Oaks Drive in Farmingdale, NJ. Sponsored by New Jersey Natural Gas and The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, the event will honor United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties’ Past President & CEO Timothy Hearne, New Jersey Natural Gas and the Ocean County YMCA for their dedication and service to our community.
“We are proud to highlight the contributions of our honorees and all they have done to advance our very important mission to improve the lives of youth and their families in Monmouth and Ocean counties,” stated Lori-Anne McLane, President & CEO of United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. “We are looking forward to a very fun, successful event with our dedicated community members, business and nonprofit leaders, and some new friends of our organization.”
“What’s exciting is that all new or increased donations and sponsorships will be matched dollar for dollar by the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, so this is the perfect opportunity to support UWMOC’s largest fundraiser and double your impact,” said Kelly Fliller, Co-Chair of Women United and the Casino Royale Committee.
In 2017, UWMOC announced the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation $1 Million Challenge to help raise funds for the community. The Challenge will match all new or increased donations up to $1 million until June 30, 2021.
“Women United is a phenomenal group of dedicated women who are making a significant impact on Monmouth and Ocean counties. Since the group was formed in 2014, we have raised over $190,000 for our community, and this event will extend our reach considerably,” said Aimee Fasano, Co-Chair of Women United.
Tickets for Casino Royale are $175 each and include open bar, hors d’oeuvres and stations, classic casino games, silent and live auctions, and games of chance. UWMOC will also be unveiling the United for Impact Fund, a live appeal that will raise donations for the organization’s early grade reading program, which ensures students are learning, engaged and healthy over the summer months so they are ready for school in September. Sponsorships and digital ad journal opportunities are due by September 20th, while reservations are accepted through September 23rd.
