Benefit Luncheon

Dear readers,

I am working with the alumni association of my sorority to host a benefit luncheon for one of our young alumnae sisters who was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer last year. The Northern NJ Alumni Association of Theta Phi Alpha sorority is hosting this benefit next Saturday, July 26th from noon to 3pm at Trinity Restaurant in Keyport, NJ. Proceeds from the benefit will go to the “Don’t Stop Believing” fund which benefits Stephanie Coonan, of Hazlet, NJ.

Stephanie, 23-years old, is a sister of the Beta Beta chapter at the College of New Jersey in Ewing where she was in her senior year prior to being diagnosed. Stephanie has had her stomach removed and has gone through chemotherapy and numerous surgical procedures.

Tickets are still available. The luncheon will cost $30.00 per person and includes choice of entree with dessert:

Grilled Salmon with Watermelon and Cucumber Salad with Creamy Lime Vinaigrette

Reconstructed Chicken Parmigiana…Roasted Free-Range Chicken Breast with Fresh Mozzarella over Caprese Salad

Vegetarian Moussaka with Ratatouille Vinaigrette

Dessert: Fresh Strawberries in 25-year old Balsamic Vinaigrette with Mascarpone Mousse & Katafi

If you would like to attend or donate, please leave a comment here and I will personally send you details (I can see your email when you leave a comment, will not publish on main page).

Thank you dear readers for taking the time to read this.

    I’d love to come and have that reconstructed chicken parmigiana. In lieu of flying to New Jersey, though, please email me details for donating. 🙂
