Friendship Circle Banquet Offers Glimpse of the Future
More than 750 people gathered to show their support for families who have children and teens with special needs and to celebrate the honorees at the Friendship Circle Annual Banquet.
The March 29 event was held at the future home of LifeTown in Livingston. A one-of-a-kind, fully accessible and integrated center, LifeTown will provide social, recreational and educational programming for the community at large and people with special needs.
The evening’s honorees included U.S. Senator Cory Booker; Patricia and Kevin Cummings, President & CEO of Investors Bank; Ilene and Lance Blake, President of Rotwein+Blake; Arlene and Michael Gordon, Partner at Gordon & Gordon Attorneys at Law; and Mara and Steven Simon, President of Consolidated Service Distributors.
In his remarks, Sen. Booker praised the work of the Friendship Circle and everyone involved with the organization.
“You see the truth, the dignity and the worth of every child,” the senator said. “That every child should be celebrated and elevated because you see someone created in G-d’s image. To me, that is miraculous.”
