Navarumsunk Auxiliary Spring Luncheon & Fashion Show set for May 9

Branches Event to benefit Family & Children’s Service

LONG BRANCH, NJ, April 9, 2012 – The Navarumsunk Auxiliary cordially invites the community to its 55th Annual Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 9, at Branches in West Long Branch to benefit Family & Children’s Service (FCS), Monmouth County’s oldest nonprofit social service agency.

For more than a half century, this premier fundraising event has served as the official kick-off to the spring season. Tickets for the luncheon are $45 and include a delicious gourmet luncheon, a silent auction encompassing bountiful baskets of wine, luxury items and accessories, a 50/50 raffle and a fashion show featuring Le Papillon of Rumson.

Founded in 1957, the Navarumsunk Auxiliary of FCS adopted its name from the Native American tribe that inhabited the Rumson-Fair Haven peninsula. Since that time, the group has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for FCS, benefiting countless individuals and families in need. The auxiliary is always looking for new members and the luncheon is a great way to get acquainted with the organization and its dedicated volunteers. For more information or to receive an invitation, please contact Diane Gribbin by phone at 732-22-9111 ext. 134 or email at
