“We are especially excited to celebrate our 60th Anniversary,” says Auxiliary President Arlene Lospinoso. “Our Diamond Anniversary is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with so many of our friends and supporters, and to recognize the important work that what we have done as women to help fulfill the Mission and Vision of FCS.”
The Navarumsunk Auxiliary got its start in December, 1956 when Olivia Dutcher, a longtime Board Member of FCS, invited a group of prominent Monmouth County women to discuss forming an organization to support the agency. The group held its first event that summer, a small poolside Fashion Show that raised $370 to benefit FCS. Now, 60 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars later, the Navarumsunk Auxiliary continues to provide support to FCS 14 programs and services, including home care for the frail, elderly and disabled and child literacy for young children in underserved communities.
