For the second year in a row businesses at Eastpointe Shopping Center in Atlantic Highlands are organizing a charity fundraiser to be held at Eastpointe Plaza on Sunday, June 27th to benefit the Hope for Children Foundation NJ.

Atlantic Highlands, NJ  - The second annual Eastpointe Shopping Center Charity Event, “Eastpointe Raising Hope”, which will be held on Sunday, June 27th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, in the Eastpointe Shopping Center parking lot, will include fun activities for kids as well as the young at heart. This fun-filled family oriented event will include music / DJ entertainment, a giant inflatable slide, dunk tank and other rides, games, and attractions, in addition to raffles, silent auctions, and giveaways.

Raffles will include four tickets to the Bon Jovi and Kid Rock concert on July 9th at the new Meadowlands Stadium. The tickets are only $5 each; the drawing will be held on the day of the event and 100% of the proceeds will go to charity.  In addition, Eastpointe Health & Fitness will hold a pre-event Spin-a-thon from 7:00am to 12:00pm and will give chair massages throughout the event. All event proceeds will benefit the Hope for Children Foundation NJ.

Hope for Children Foundation NJ was founded by a group of young entrepreneurs who wanted to make a difference in the lives of children enduring challenging circumstances. To date HFCF has donated over three quarters of a million dollars to local charities and families in need of assistance in Monmouth County. Now more than ever the foundation needs the support of local businesses and individuals as budgets are being cut while the needs of the children keep growing.

“It’s our way of giving back to the community; it especially feels good to be helping children and making their lives better”, says Paul Mazzella Owner of Eastpointe Health & Fitness. Peter Ruvolo of Ruvolo’s Pizza and Restaurant  has been instrumental in liaising with the charity and Eastpointe businesses to put the event together. “It’s great that more and more businesses are pulling together to make a difference through a wonderful charity”, says Ruvolo.

Book your calendars for Sunday, June 27th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, and come join Eastpointe Shopping Center businesses for an afternoon of fun for a cause. Proceeds from rides, games, and attractions, as well as raffles and silent auctions will all benefit the Hope for Children Foundation NJ.
