Opportunity Project Scores At Annual Golf Classic Fundraiser
On Monday, October 1, 2012, Opportunity Project and Event Co-Chairs Eileen Sudler, Sal Davino, Marshall Freidus, David Genova, Chris Johnson, Ted Stampoulos and Marc Berson joined with hundreds of sponsors, donors and supporters to tee-off at the annual Golf Classic. The event helped generate funds and raised awareness for people living with brain injuries, securing approximately $220,000 in donations from participants.
Joining Opportunity Project this year were special guests
Steve Adubato, Ph.D., Emmy Award-winning Anchor, Thirteen/WNET, and author of “You Are the Brand,” and the Gotham City Cheerleaders who entertained attendees while informing them about critical issues surrounding brain injury awareness.
“We’re thankful of all the contributions from our many donors and supporters who, over the years, have given generously to help us continue to provide work training and vocational services, support groups, transportation and other resources that help individuals with brain injury reintegrate into their communities,” said Carol Albanese, Executive Director of Opportunity Project. “Without their generous support, many people with brain injuries who need additional assistance with the recovery process would miss out on the chance to regain their independence.”
The 2012 Opportunity Project Golf Classic was sponsored by Century 21 Construction, Fidelity Land Development Corporation, The Fidelco Group, The Freidus Family, Kushner Realty Group, and Wolff Samson.
The Opportunity Project Clubhouse is a unique program created by and for adults with brain injuries who are seeking the next step in a journey to recovery. It is the first and only Clubhouse Program for people with brain injuries in the State of New Jersey. Beginning with 5 members it has now served over 500 individuals. The programs, handicap accessible building and extensive services are a national model for Clubhouses and to other community-based service programs for people with brain injury throughout the country. Providing an environment of support, challenge and choices, the ultimate goal is full reintegration back into the family, work and community after one sustains a brain injury. Opportunity Project’s motto- no one is turned away due to lack of funding- sets us apart from others in the brain injury field. http://www.opportunityproject.org
