The second meeting of the Breakfast Club, a new auxiliary of Englewood Hospital, was a great success, bringing together 90 supporters of the hospital in an informal gathering held at the beautiful Alpine Country Club in Demarest, NJ.

The October 27 event included a particularly delicious brunch featuring more delectable offerings than it was possible to sample. Guests gathered in the club’s lovely dining room to enjoy each other’s company and a lively presentation by NBC’s Produce Pete on selecting nutritious and delicious foods. Five thousand dollars was raised to help support the hospital’s programming and outreach to fight childhood obesity.

“The Breakfast Club is growing in leaps and bounds, thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of its founding members, Foundation trustee Susan Silberman, Suellen Freeman, Beth Nadel and Carol Rubin, and an expanding roster of terrific new supporters,” said Todd Brooks, acting executive vice president of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Foundation. “The club is a testimony to the devotion of our community to Englewood Hospital.”

The Breakfast Club meets several times a year and new members are most welcome. Call Todd Brooks at 201-894-3004 for more information.
