Tickets still available for the annual fundraiser and fashion show 

, , April 21, 2011 – The Navarumsunk Auxiliary to Family & Children’s Service (FCS) cordially invites the community to its 54th Annual Spring Luncheon on Wednesday, May 4, at Branches in . Guests will enjoy a delicious lunch and fashion show, courtesy of Le Papillon of Rumson, as well as a chance auction and 50/50 raffle. All are welcome!

Founded in 1957, the Navarumsunk Auxiliary adopted its name from the Native American tribe that inhabited the Rumson- Fair Haven peninsula. Their premiere fundraising event, a small poolside Summer Fashion Show, raised $370 that first year. and eventually evolved into the much anticipated annual Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, attracting guests from all over and beyond. This event, together with the auxiliary’s annual Bridge Tournament, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for FCS, benefiting untold numbers of individuals and families in need.

The auxiliary is always looking for new members and the luncheon is a great way to get acquainted with the organization and its dedicated volunteers. For more information contact Diane Gribbin at 732-222-9111 or at dgribbin@fcsmonmouth.org.
