For the past two years, AASP/NJ has made the Center the choice recipient of its annual Race Night fundraising event, which was held this past June at RPM Raceway in Jersey City.
AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee visited the facility to formally present the check to Nancy Kennedy, director of development at Hackensack University Medical Center.
“On behalf of the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation, we are thankful to the association for their generous donation. Every dollar counts in helping to find a cure,” commented Kennedy.
“Once again, AASP/NJ is proud to donate to the Cancer Center. It truly is a humbling experience to come to a place like this. It’s so important to give back to those in need,” shared McNee. “As Nancy said, you don’t know which dollar will be the one that helps find a cure. It’s a great experience to support this Center, and it’s self-fulfilling as well.”
In addition to AASP/NJ’s annual support of the John Theurer Cancer Center, the association’s Board of Directors has been encouraging members to also consider donating directly to the Center. McNee made an additional $1,000 donation on behalf of his shop, Ultimate Collision Repair (Edison).
John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center is New Jersey’s largest and most comprehensive center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, management, research, screenings, preventive care and survivorship of patients with various forms of cancers.
