Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation raised nearly $380,000 at their 39th Annual Crystal Ball Gala “Paint the Town Blue” on November 16th.  The theme was chosen to celebrate the hospital’s strengths and its dedication to the local community.  Also focusing on the talent that resides within our community, the silent auction included featured local artists James Fiorentino and Kevin Von Holterman with their undeniable artistic gifts.  Hunterdon Central Regional High School students designed creative artwork for table centerpieces, along with many other organizations that all played a significant role in funds raised.

Paint the Town Blue was a testament to the spirit of a community that continues to give of their time, talent and treasure, assuring that Hunterdon Healthcare remains a strong and viable healthcare leader for generations to come.  The Spirit of Hunterdon award has been a long time tradition, honoring an individual or organization that has significantly impacted the success of Hunterdon Healthcare. This year’s honorees were Unity Bank, the Corporate Spirit Honoree; America’s Grow-a-Row, the Community Spirit Honoree; and Katie Benson the Philanthropic Spirit Honoree. All were selected for their incredible impact in the community from driving economic growth, to providing fresh produce for the underserved, to raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.
