This morning I am sitting in the airport in Newark, NJ, waiting for my flight home. I had the opportunity to attend the Annual Kids' Chance of New Jersey Gala last night, as well as the honor of being their Keynote speaker. It was an outstanding event that not only raised fund for the organization, it also served as a platform to present scholarships to 20 deserving kids.
They gave out almost $200,000 last night.
About 400 people attended the gala, and the support the seven year old KCNJ organization has from the people of this state is impressive. I will write a bit more about it next week but wanted to just make a quick post to show a couple photos and to thank the organizers for the privilege of participating.
And thanks to the people of New Jersey for so strongly supporting the Kids' Chance mission!
