LIVINGSTON, NJ – Sally Glick, Vice President of Marketing at Livingston based accounting firm Sobel & Co., has recently announced that as a board member of the Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNANNJ) she has agreed to co-chair this year’s fourth annual Celebration of Life Holiday Event.
“The opportunity to support the Visiting Nurses of Northern New Jersey and at the same time participate in a festive free lighting and a delicious wine tasting program led by sensory expert Gail Civille is the best of both worlds,” said Glick. “The fundraiser is much needed and the program is wonderful for everyone as a great way to kick off the holiday season.”
This annual celebration is a free event that will honor and remember loved ones that have passed away and will include a tree lighting ceremony with live entertainment and refreshments followed by a wine tasting and reception.
Keynote speaker Kate S. Tomlinson, Publisher of New Jersey Monthly will speak at the tree lighting and Gail Vance Civille, President of Sensory Spectrum will give a presentation on how the senses interact with different types of wine.
"Proceeds from the event will provide critical funds for VNA programs and services, which include hospice, respite care, adult daycare services, nursing and rehabilitative therapies for those in need, regardless of their ability to pay,” explained Eileen Scott.
Tickets are currently being sold for $50 per person in advance and for $60 at the door. For event date, time and location details see attached flyer.
