As a gift to the organization, each year, the NLC NJ Fellows class puts together a Fellows Fundraiser to put to use the skills and training they have learned over the fellowship and to ensure that they training remains free for the next class of fellows. Each year, the Fellows class has stepped up their game to ensure that the fundraiser is an even bigger success that the year before.
In 2013, the Fellows Fundraiser was a huge success. Held at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton the event recognized Amy Mansue, President and CEO of Children’s Specialized Hospital, Gloucester County Freeholder Adam J. Taliaferro, Bill Sproule, New Jersey regional manager of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, Milly Silva, SEIU NJ State Council Vice President, and Jeffrey Vega, President of New Brunswick Tomorrow. You can view photos from the 2013 Fellows Fundraiser here.
In the past, Fellows Fundraisers have hosted MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry and New Jersey Congressmen Rush Holt and Frank Pallone. You can see photos from the 2012 Fellows Fundraiser here and from the 2011 Fellows Fundraiser here. Since New Leaders Council New Jersey’s inception in 2011, the chapter has received the national honor of best fundraiser in our category. And we look forward to seeing what the 2014 Fellows class has in store.
