The Chester Lions Club is excited to contribute $1,000 towards a unique fund raiser supporting Roxbury Social Services.
The 13th Annual Children’s Carnival will take place at Horseshoe Lake this year, 72 Eyland Avenue, Roxbury, NJ, 07876 on Sunday August 3rd, 2014, 3:00pm to 6:30pm. Proceeds are used to purchase gift cards that are then distributed by Roxbury Social Services to financially needy families. The event was started by the Stellingwerf family of Chester. According to Brian Stellingwerf who was instrumental in starting the carnival when he was 11, “in the past twelve years alone, we have successfully donated over $21,000″ making a difference in the lives of less fortunate children.
Join the Chester Lions Club in donating any amount to provide vital services to needy families. Gift cards will be purchased from the Ledgewood Wal-mart with the proceeds. Roxbury Social Services distributes the cards in conjunction with Operation Backpack.
