Jersey Club Sports kicked off December’s month of giving with its “Family Promise of Morris County Charity Event” at the Famished Frog. With the help of over a hundred JCS members and friends, the sports organization was able to raise over $1,600 for the Interfaith Council for Homeless Families of Morris County!
Patrons of the event were able to indulge in tremendous drink specials, including new sponsors Van Gogh Vodka and Cupcake Wine (my personal favorite). Some guests were busy boasting their latest triumphs in kickball, soccer or basketball, while others continued to build friendships that only JCS can offer a group of young professional athletes.
So how did Deb Nexon, owner of JCS, help raise so much money? Easy: endless amounts of tricky trays! After purchasing my fair share of tickets, I took my chances on items such as Giants vs Cowboys tickets, YMCA memberships, a snowboard, spa days and much, much more. Luckily for me, my donations paid off and I walked away with a nice “Oscar Night” basket full of goodies!
But Nexon couldn’t stop there! She outdid herself with a karaoke night. U-Rock Live Karaoke puts you on stage with a top flight rock and roll band able to play any song you want. We all knew we were good at sports, but who knew the JCS crew had such singing abilities, too!
To say this night was a success would be an understatement! If you missed out, come check out the next JCS event on December 9th when beer pong and charity meet at the Famished Frog. Click here to sign up!
Once again, I can happily share with my fellow Morristownians, another wonderful night out in town, having fun for a cause.
