When Arlene and Maurice “Butch” Lospinoso throw a party, everyone shows up! This past Sunday, despite the blistering heat and humidity, the Middletown couple rallied more than 180 of their closest friends and family to attend their annual “Day at the Races” fundraiser at Monmouth Park Racetrack benefiting FCS. Butch, an avid horse racing fan, and Arlene, a former Chair of the FCS Board of Directors and president of the agency’s Navarumsunk Auxiliary, have been organizing “Day at the Races” for more than 20 years to raise funds for essential FCS programs and services, including protection for vulnerable adults, home care for the frail and elderly and school-based volunteer programs designed to promote childhood well-being. Their efforts have resulted in thousands of dollars in support for the agency.
