With the opening of a new Valerie Fund Children's Center at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Paterson, New Jersey an additional 1,000 critically ill children and their families from Northern New Jersey have the opportunity to receive the comprehensive healthcare and financial support The Valerie Fund has to offer. Passaic County is a new geographic region for our organization and the home to The Passaic County Board of Realtors whose members have become important fundraising partners in recent years.
The Passaic County Board of Realtors has chosen The Valerie Fund as their "Charity of Choice" for 2018.
The Passaic County Board of Realtors represents more than 2,000 members from all real estate specialties who work with each other, the people in their community, and elected officials to make Northern New Jersey "a place you want to live, work and play."
President Judith "Judy" Mizzone said, "The Passaic County Board of Realtors has had the honor to participate with The Valerie Fund over the past few years. Realtors are committed to giving back towards the improvement of our local communities and we believe that families are the lifeblood within them."
Since 2016, The Passaic County Board of Realtors has raised nearly $2,000 between their Walk team and their campaign, REALTORS® of NJ can make a REAL difference in the lives of New Jersey Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders.
Mizzone continued, "It is our privilege to be dedicating our 2018 Realtors Community Project fundraising efforts to this phenomenal organization as the cause is very near and dear to our hearts. We are humbled and look forward to working alongside The Valerie Fund to help families in their journey towards their child's recovery."
On behalf of The Valerie Fund staff, patients and families, we want to thank The Passaic County Board of Realtors and their passion for our organization.
