Colts Neck, New Jersey - On Saturday, February 7, 2015 beginning at 6:30 pm at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, guests will gather to honor Anita DelPesce and Bob Montesano at The Ashley Lauren Foundation's 4th Annual "Butterfly Ball."
The event provides an opportunity for attendees to enjoy an evening of fine food, drink and entertainment while raising funds and increasing awareness of The Ashley Lauren Foundation's mission of providing Hope & Help for Children with Cancer in NJ. Guests will enjoy a truly "Festive" Carnival Atmosphere during the cocktail hour.
In addition to an evening of dinner and dancing - with music by Mack & Soul, guests will be able to bid on many unique auction items graciously donated by supporters of The Ashley Lauren Foundation. Founder and CEO, Monica Vermeulen, states, "This is an evening not to be missed. We have many exciting things planned for the Ball. Victoria Ali, Butterfly Ball Chairperson, and her dedicated committee are working hard at making this a very memorable evening."
Funds raised by the Butterfly Ball will support the programs of The Ashley Lauren Foundation including Direct Family Assistance, (household bills, bills and medications not paid through medical insurance, traveling expenses to and from hospitals, funeral expenses, etc.); Material Assistance (food, clothing, household items); Emotional Support; Support groups; Parties for the Children; Advocacy; Outings; Birthday and Holiday Gifts for the Children; "Making Dreams Come True" Program and anything else that is needed to make their lives easier and to let each child know that they are important. The Ashley Lauren Foundation does not fund research but rather are "in the trenches" with these families as they cope with the daily battle of pediatric cancer."
The Ashley Lauren Foundation will also be celebrating the kick-off of a monumental milestone. Please join us at the Butterfly Ball as we celebrate 10 years of providing Hope & Help to NJ Children with Cancer.
