Lawrenceville, NJ—On the evening of Friday, April 4, 2014, PEI Kids hosted its 23rd Annual Dinner & Auction fundraiser at Greenacres Country Club in Lawrenceville. Over 150 people attend the event to bid on auction items provided by local restaurants and businesses and to listen to live music. With the support of nearly 30 sponsors, the event raised nearly $50,000 for PEI Kids’ child abuse prevention and intervention services.
“The event was an overwhelming success,” says Ventura Wealth Management President and PEI Kids Board of Trustees President Nicholas Ventura. “We beat our fundraising goal for the evening by a wide margin. We could not be more thrilled with the community support we received this evening.”
“We’ve hosted PEI Kids’ Annual Dinner & Auction in the past, and it’s always a wonderful affair,” says Manager of Greenacres Country Club Larry Bienapfl. “PEI Kids is a wonderful organization, and we are thrilled Greenacres Country Club could be of service to them this evening.”
