Roman Jewelers Raises $3,500 for Hunterdon Medical Center: Money to Go Toward Visiting Health Support Services (December 19, 2006 Flemington, NJ) — It was a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays for Hunterdon Medical Center. Roman Jewelers in Flemington has donated $3,500 to the Medical Center’s Visiting Health Support Services. The money was raised during a remote radio broadcast at the Flemington store featuring New York City radio personality Joan Hamburg.
Sophie Shor, Vice President of Roman Jewelers says, “Just by selling the $25 tickets and raffling off a Cartier watch, we were able to raise the funds. We enjoy giving back to the community in this way. When the hospital benefits, everyone benefits and we are so happy to help in this effort.”
Joan Grady, Director of Hunterdon Regional Community Health explains the money is desperately needed to help cover the cost of home health aides. “As people get older, they often prefer to stay at home. Providing quality health care inside their own home allows them to do just that. It not only gives them a piece of mind, but quality of life and you can’t put a price on that.”
The Medical Center will continue taking donations for Visiting Health Support Services through December 31, 2006. Members of the public can mail checks to Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation, 2100 Wescott Drive, Flemington, NJ 08822. An anonymous donor has agreed to match any money raised up to $50,000, so this donation of $3,500 actually equates to $7,000 donated to Visiting Health Support Services.
