More than 100 Bridge enthusiasts turned out for a day of competitive play with a purpose at the Eighth Annual Navarumsunk Auxiliary Benefit Bridge Luncheon, Wednesday, September 11th at the Rumson Country Club. The event, which featured both Duplicate and Party Bridge, raised more than $5,000 for Family & Children’s Service (FCS), Monmouth County’s oldest non-profit social service agency, serving the vulnerable through education, intervention, care and counseling.
The annual tournament is one of several Auxiliary fundraisers held throughout the year to fund critical FCS community-based programs, including intervention services for neglected and exploited adults, home health and respite care for families seeking a way to care for an aging loved one at home, financial management for those with mental and physical challenges, and volunteer services for dozens of local organizations.
