WOODBRIDGE – Asm. Craig J. Coughlin announced the second annual “Bowl for Hunger” charity event, in partnership with the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation and Middlesex Water Company, at a press event Wednesday. The July 19 fundraiser will aid the community’s 32 food banks and soup kitchens.
Coughlin thanked the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation and Middlesex Water Company for partnering again for the Bowl for Hunger—saying that together more than 30 corporate sponsors and over 384 bowling participants are signed up for the event at the Woodbridge Bowling Center.
Raritan Bay Medical Center President and CEO Michael D’Agnes said, “The Raritan Bay Medical Center and our foundation are honored and privileged to be a part of the Bowl for Hunger. We truly recognize that people rely on food banks. As the primary medical resource in the 19th District coverage area, we have a strong interest in maintaining a healthy community.”
“Middlesex Water Company is once again pleased to sponsor this event which benefits our neighbors and our community, said Dennis Doll, company president and CEO. “We encourage people to support the Bowl for Hunger on July 19, and to also remember their local food banks that rely on public donations of non-perishable items year round.”
Woodbridge Mayor John E. McCormac said, “Woodbridge Township takes its commitment to the 11 township-wide food pantries very seriously. Each year, our Summer Concert Series yields 40,000 to 50,000 pounds of food items. Our Election Day “Cast-A-Vote, Cast-A-Can” campaign has been successful as well. Unlike some other fundraising ventures, the Bowl for Hunger event provides a fun avenue for all those involved.”
This year’s event has doubled its capacity, offering participants either a 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. shift or 8 to 10 p.m. shift. For more information, contact Coughlin’s office at 1-732-855-7441
