Family Promise of Monmouth County Honors NJ Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno with 2017 Hope Award
The Hope Award will be presented to Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno for her outstanding leadership in New Jersey.
Kim Guadagno is honored to receive this year's Hope Award and in doing so recognized the tremendous efforts of the volunteers and sponsors that provide assistance to Family Promise's beneficiaries. She says, "The great strength of Monmouth County and this great State doesn't exist in the halls of the County Court House or the State House in Trenton. Our strength resides in the hearts and souls of our people. It's when ordinary people do extraordinary things to help others."
One of Kim Guadagno's friends, Tim McLoone, humanitarian, restaurateur and founder of the nonprofit organization Holiday Express. says, "I am Kim's biggest fan because she epitomizes everything that a politician should be. She only cares about helping people, particularly families in distress." Mr. McLoone will also be speaking at the event.
The annual dinner includes a cocktail reception and live entertainment followed by dinner, silent and live auctions, and an awards presentation. Visit familypromisemc.org for detailed information on sponsorship opportunities. Tickets are available for purchase online: https://tinyurl.com/
