TOGETHER WE RAISED OVER $65,000 IN OUR FIRST FIVE YEARS, which benefited local families in need, supported scholarships at Wayne Valley and Wayne Hills high schools, contributed funds to cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and oncology patient care at Hackensack University Medical Center.
