MIDDLESEX COUNTY — Assemblyman Craig J. Coughlin joined with officials from the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation and Middlesex Water Company to announce the third annual “Bowl for Hunger” on Tuesday, July 17, at the Woodbridge Bowling Center.
Together, Coughlin, Michael D’Agnes, president and CEO of Raritan Bay Medical Center, and Dennis Doll, chairman, CEO and president of Middlesex Water Company, continue to stress the present and growing need for our residents to assist our community’s 30 food banks and soup kitchens.
Coughlin (D-Middlesex) praised and thanked the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation and Middlesex Water Company for partnering again for the Bowl for Hunger. “Through our collective efforts of recruiting sponsors and participants, I am pleased to announce that 59 corporate and individuals sponsors have generously contributed and over 350 bowlers are signed up for this year’s Bowl for Hunger.”
D’Agnes, in a statement 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.”
Doll stated, “Middlesex Water Company is in its 115th year of building stronger communities and providing quality water service to the region. Many area residents rely on the local food banks and we are pleased to once again help fight hunger by sponsoring this event which benefits our neighbors and those in need.”
In addition to the three principal sponsors, Berkeley College, Carpenters Local Union No. 254 Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, DuPont, Gerdau, Hatch Mott MacDonald, New Jersey Dietetic Association and Woodbridge Center Mall have become new event sponsors for the upcoming event.
In July 2011, the Bowl for Hunger event doubled capacity to allow for over 350 bowlers from dozens of local businesses and community organizations. Together, participants and the events’ 73 corporate and individual sponsors raised over $12,000 that was donated equally to the 19th District’s 32 food banks and soup kitchens. Since its inception two years ago, the Bowl for Hunger has contributed over $21,000 to local food banks. The 19th Legislative District is comprised of the following municipalities: Carteret, Perth Amboy, Sayreville, South Amboy, and Woodbridge.
