Family Fireworks on the Navesink Raises Nearly $100,000 for Riverview Medical Center
The evening's torrential downpours couldn't stop the DiPiero family from hosting the third annual Family Fireworks on the Navesink Saturday, June 27 and raising nearly $100,000 to benefit the programs and services at Riverview Medical Center.
Riverview Medical Center is embarking on a historic building project to renovate and expand its Cancer Center in Booker Pavilion, leveraging the strength of Riverview’s cancer care program to bolster services available in our communities.
“As the premier fundraising event for Riverview Medical Center, the funds raised at the Family Fireworks on the Navesink supports our mission and further strengthens our community’s well-being,” shares Timothy J. Hogan, regional hospital president for Monmouth County.
“I’m overwhelmed by the amount of support we received on Saturday," says Nancy Mulheren, chairperson of Riverview Medical Center Foundation. "The weather was working against us, but the community and event committee rallied and made it an extremely successful and memorable event.”
Despite the challenging weather, more than 240 people attended the sold out event at the beautiful DiPiero Family home on the Navesink River, where they enjoyed BBQ, a variety of food trucks, games and a spectacular fireworks show that lit up the Navesink.
“This event continues to grow and proves to be an outstanding display of generosity in our area,” explains event chair and Riverview Medical Center Foundation trustee, Hilary DiPiero. “On behalf of the event committee, we’re honored be a part of such a worthy cause that helps deliver great health care, close to home.”
