On October 19, 2023, Hunterdon Health Foundation hosted their annual Crystal Evening Cocktail Party at Hamilton Farm Golf Club raising more than $260,000 for programs and services at Hunterdon Health. The Foundation was equally thrilled to recognize the recipients of the Spirit of Hunterdon Award, recognizing individuals and organizations that have significantly contributed to the betterment of Hunterdon Health and our community.
This year, the Foundation bestowed the Corporate Spirit Honoree upon goHunterdon, while the Philanthropic Honoree award went to Hunterdon Anesthesia Associates. All award recipients were meticulously chosen for their tireless efforts in supporting not only our organization but the broader Hunterdon community. Guests were also presented with a touching patient video featuring Robyn, a Hunterdon Behavioral Health patient who courageously shared her personal journey with Hunterdon Health. Robyn conveyed her heartfelt appreciation to the Behavioral Health staff for approaching their work with a deep sense of purpose rather than merely a job. She extended her gratitude to the entire Hunterdon Team for their genuine concern for each patient's unique story and their path to recovery.
During the event, guests relished the culinary delights served at Hamilton Farm, where they savored not only delectable food but the breathtaking scenery. The evening was accompanied by tunes from the local band, Daddy Pop, an immersive 360 photo experience, and a vibrant firework display on the driving range that marked the finale of the night. Guests also had an opportunity to depart with signed albums, vacation packages, golf outings, and other enticing offerings, all attainable through our silent auction.
