Fiddlerís Elbow Venue for Gala for The Center
for Great Expectations


Somerset, NJ - The Center for Great Expectations, a residential treatment center for homeless, pregnant and parenting women and adolescents, and their children, will hold their annual gala at Fiddlerís Elbow Country Club in Bedminster on Friday evening, October 26, 2012. Entertainment will include the popular music of the Greaseband and a silent auction. Generous gifts to be auctioned include vacation homes in Napa Valley, Puerto Vallarta, and Shawnee, Pa; tickets to Prudential Center events and NY Giants games; jewelry, furs, toys, electronics and more.

This yearís Gala Honoree is Ron Ladell, Senior Vice President of AvalonBay Communities, who is receiving the Humanitarian of the Year award for his support of the Centerís Permanent Supportive Housing initiative. Msgr. David I. Fulton, administrative officer of St. Maryís Seminary and University, and Pastor Emeritus of Our Lady of Victories in Baptistown, will receive the Centerís Outstanding Service award for his long time support of the Centerís mission. Marie Gallo, long time volunteer at the Center and parishioner of St. Matthias Church in Somerset, is also being honored for her dedicated service to the Center and its families.

ďThe women and adolescents who come to the Center have a variety of issues, many of which originate from their abuse during childhood. They are now homeless, pregnant and with children. They struggle with substance use and/or mental health disorders,Ē said Peg Wright, the Centerís President. ďThe Centerís housing, effective recovery programs, and onsite childcare gives them a safe place, safe presence, and safe path so they can move forward.Ē

The organization, which serves all of New Jersey, attributes its success to their skilled clinical staff and the support from their donors, grantors, and volunteers. The Center will be introducing its first units of Permanent Supportive Housing later this month through the collaboration of Mr. Ladell and AvalonSomerset. With hundreds of women each year placed on a waiting list, the Center hopes to expand its successful treatment model, focusing on its Outpatient Services Program, currently located at the St. Peterís University Hospital Clinic in New Brunswick.

For Gala Tickets, to advertise in our Gala Journal and to give your support to this New Jersey organization, please call 732-247-7003  Ext.11 or email .
