The Evergreens Hosts Successful 6th Annual “Cycle of Life” Fundraiser To Benefit The YMCA of Burlington & Camden Counties’ Community Support Campaign
The Evergreens in Moorestown hosted its 6th annual Cycle of Life Motorcycle Poker Run. More than 40 riders and passengers participated in this year’s 100+ mile ride through South Jersey, starting at The Evergreens and ending at the Flying W Airport Resort in Medford with lunch and live music by Commodore Fish Dish. This year’s ride was to help raise money and awareness for the YMCA of Burlington & Camden Counties’ Community Support Campaign.
“With the outstanding generosity of our 2013 Cycle of Life sponsors and participants, we are happy to donate $16,420 to the Y’s Community Support Campaign,” said Doug Halvorsen, president and CEO of The Evergreens and avid motorcycle rider and enthusiast. “We are thrilled to be able to help all of the adults, teens and children that utilize the Y’s many services each day through this donation to the campaign.”
This year’s, Cycle of Life leading event sponsors included: Benefit Concepts, Martino and Binzer, T-N-T Painting, Allstate, Bayada Home Health Care, Classic Marble & Granite, Inc., John Berger Flooring, Morrison Senior Dining, YMCA of Burlington & Camden Counties, Acerbo’s Auto Trim & Lettering, Comegno Law Group, P.C, Bollinger Insurance Solutions, Lewis Funeral Home, Alisa Dutka for Mary Kay, Inc., Stewart Family Foundation and Thomas/Boyd Communications.
"We commend and thank The Evergreens for spearheading the annual Poker Run event and soliciting the support of sponsors to benefit YMCA programs and services,” said Tim Kerrihard, Y president and chief executive officer. “This is what our Community Support Campaign is all about – bringing together our community partners and friends to help close the financial gap for Burlington and Camden county families who value or require the Y’s programs and services, but may not be able to afford them.”PHOTO: Front row, left to right: John Kennedy of The Evergreens and Morrison Senior Living; Jen Segelken of the YMCA of Burlington & Camden Counties; Mike Gerber, Board Chair of the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties; Doug Halvorsen, President and CEO of The Evergreens; Tim Kerrihard, President and CEO of the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties; Gerry Lord, Board Chair of The Evergreens; Ryan Scannell of Benefit Concepts, 2013 Cycle of Life sponsor; and Dana Natale of Benefit Concepts, 2013 Cycle of Life sponsor.
