Jack and Jill Chooses Interfaith Hospitality Network to be Charitable Recipient for Upcoming Ball



The Greater Essex County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., has chosen Interfaith Hospitality Network of Essex County to be the charitable recipient for their sixth Biennial Harvest Ball, "A Global Affair, For A Local Cause." 

During the past 10 years, Greater Essex raised over $150,000 to fulfill the missions of seven charitable organizations. The Chapter is hoping to continue this tradition, aiming to make Harvest Ball 2012 a record-breaking success.

IHN Executive Director Tia Aery states, “We are honored to be chosen as Jack and Jill’s charitable recipient for 2012. This group of energetic, philanthropically-minded individuals have impressed me with their desire to make positive change in our community. With their actions, they are improving life for IHN families in crisis.”

This past year, Jack and Jill has partnered with IHN by adopting seven IHN families for Christmas, providing a $1,500 scholarship award to a college bound student, and including IHN families in a recent health and wellness fair that promoted healthy nutrition and fitness.

The Harvest Ball will take place on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012 at the Westminster Hotel, 550 West Mount Pleasant, Livingston, N.J. To support the event and promote its success, you may purchase tickets and/or journal ads.

"Thank you to each and every one of you for what you have done for me and my family. When I first came into IHN I knew that we would be moving every week to a different congregation but I had no clue that I would meet such beautiful persons and that my family would have such an impression on anyone when we were feeling like the world was about to come to an end. The hope and love that was shown to us helped us to realize that we were not alone. My experience is not one that I will ever forget."
