Dear Ms. Schmidt & Mr. Younghans,

The Glen Rock Hockey Association would like to thank you for your very generous donation for our 2015-2016 season. Our high school team again won the Big North Division 1st place cup in 2016, and made it to the Prudential Center Frozen 4 Final 2 State Championships for the first time. Glen Rock did not win the state title, but the team had a great, challenging season and was happy to have made it that far for the first time in Glen Rock Hockey History. Our littlest hockey players consisted of 38 strong mini ATOMS- just starting out, and we again offered a free beginner clinic of 10 sessions of hockey.

Your generous donation this past year helped fund the beginner clinic, helped defray the cost of uniforms, playoff ice time for high school and a safety check of used ice helmets for the youngers ones. 

Our assocaiation has benefited greatly with help from you over the years. We are in our 16th season already, and the program is still growing. The free 10-week hockey program attracts many kids and gets them started in hockey.  We also give back, and are active in helping Hockey in Newark, Hockey in Harlem, our high school boys give their time to help the younger players learn, and we still are doing a hockey equipment drive each year. Glen Rock Hockey tries to pay it forward, too. 

We would not have been as successful without your help. Thank you so very Much!

Sincerely,

Sandra Jorgensen

Dear Bryan,

 

On behalf of the Department for Persons with Disabilitites (DPD), please accept our most sincere appreciation for sponsoring the 2016 Weigand Farm Golf Classic. 

 

You should be proud of the fact that your generosity and support enables DPD to enrich and maximize the quality of life of persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. With over 8,000 people on a waiting list to get into services like ours, the work we do is vital.

 

Our 2016 event sold out both courses with over 260 golfers, helped us bring in $15,000 on our silent auction, allowed us to give away a $10,000 MEGA 50/50 prize and helped us raise over $102,000 (net proceeds) for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (all Wiegand Farm Golf Classic Records)! This golf outing is now one of the biggest in all of New Jersey. In 2015, we opened our 12th residential program, Giuliano House in Jefferson Township. With your continued support of this event we hope to expand and serve more people in need. 

 

Once again, thank you for your kindness, thoughtfulness and benevolence.
