Sunday, June 17th

Come outside and enjoy Fathers Day, 6.17.18, while lending a hand at Vallevue of Morristown. (Rain date 6.24.18). This beautiful property – many of you have come to know and love – is hosting a “field day” for the community. The goal is to bring people together for a fun day filled with education, recreation, and service. This event strives to be a collaborative effort, “crowd sourced”, where the feed back from those coming determine the activities/programming provided.

Some ideas for activities include:
feeding the resident farm animals, planting tree seedlings, picking up sticks for a campfire, spreading wood chips and compost, learning about gardening and farming, drone flying, kite flying, yoga, music, water slide, obstacle course, scavenger hunt, food truck, byob picnic, hay rides, and other ideas you guys come up with.

Please reach out if you have knowledge that you would be willing to share or resources that could enhance this event. Only together can we make this happen.

Sochi Dogs Picnic with Sochi Dogs founder Vlada Provotorova!

During the 2014 Olympics, Vlada and her friends started rescuing dogs… and here we are three years later, celebrating your special pooch and the more than 245 adopted dogs.

Stop by to meet and pose for photos with your dogs’ shelter buddies or siblings, enjoy a game of frisbee, and munch on snacks.

They’ve reserved the Mendham Overlook Picnic Area in Lewis Morris Park, (there’ll be signs to direct you in the park). The park has walking trails, a playground and we’re hoping for some early fall foliage.

All dogs will need to be on leash according to park rules.

If leashes and picnics aren’t your dog’s jam, they’d still love to see you so stop by and say hello without your k-9 in tow.

CBCF TO HOST 10TH ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC

2017 Gold Outing

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will host its 10th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, August 7th at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., site of the USGA 2012 Men’s Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and has been one of Golf Week’s “Top 100 Classic Courses in America.”

The annual “Pink is the New Green®” event is one of the most popular and successful events sponsored by CBCF having raised millions to assist the efforts of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor, Dr. Larry Norton.  Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.

Reservations are now open for both the morning and afternoon sessions of The Golf Classic.  The morning session will begin at 7:00 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m.  The afternoon session will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration and breakfast and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.  An $18,000 winner-take-all-chip-off will take place immediately following conclusion of play.

The day concludes with a cocktail reception and awards dinner where Dr. Norton will address guests.  A raffle drawing will also be held for a 2017 Ford Mustang convertible, courtesy of Fette Ford. Those interested in participating in the 10th Annual Golf Classic can call (973) 471-CBCF (2223) or email register@curebreastcancerfoundation.org. Continue reading
