MIDDLESEX COUNTY – More than 350 bowlers took part last night in an annual event organized by Assemblyman Craig J. Coughlin in partnership with the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation and Middlesex Water Company to raise money for local food banks.
Over the course of four hours, split into a double session in order to accommodate the increased demand to participate, participants bowled to raise approximately $14,000 which will be divided between the area’s 30 food banks. Pledges and donations are still forthcoming, so the final fundraising total may yet go higher. Community members or businesses still wishing to make a donation to the “Bowl for Hunger” cause should contact the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation at 1-732-324-5374.
Coughlin, Raritan Bay Medical Center President and CEO Michael D’Agnes and Middlesex Water Company Chairman, CEO, and President Dennis Doll praised and thanked the participants. Other notable attendees and bowlers included state Sen. Joseph F. Vitale, Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski, Woodbridge Mayor John E. McCormac, Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz, Sayreville Mayor Kennedy O’Brien, and members of the Woodbridge Municipal Council.
All five Mayors of the 19th Legislative District honored their pledges to once again support the Bowl for Hunger—Mayor Daniel J. Reiman of Carteret, Mayor Wilda Diaz of Perth Amboy, Mayor Kennedy O’Brien of Sayreville, Mayor Fred Henry of South Amboy and Mayor John E. McCormac of Woodbridge.
This year’s event encouraged corporate and individual sponsors included Applebees, Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski, Berkeley College, DuPont, Gerdau, Hatch Mott MacDonald, New Jersey Dietetic Association, Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, Shannon Rose Irish Pub, and Woodbridge Center Mall.
