Athletic Foundation Celebrates Success
Money from the 2011 Fall Gala will help fund future projects.
The Chatham Athletic Foundation (CAF) held their 2011 Fall Gala Friday evening at the Madison Hotel in Morris Township.
CAF unveiled a video of the construction at Shunpike Field by Tom Salvas. CAF provided $350,000 of the $1.05 million for Shunpike, and held a Buy-A-Brick campaign to help pay for lights on the field.
The gala featured dinner, dancing, and the live auction by borough resident Bob Papa. Prizes from the auction included a Disney Hotel accommodation, a vacation home in Playa del Carmen, 10 tickets to the NY Giants-Bills game and sideline experience, an Avalon beach house for one week in August, and a wine tasting party for 16 people from Gary’s Wine and Marketplace.
Fundraising from the gala will go toward CAF's projects in the coming year.
The CAF is a nonprofit organization that raises money to improve the Chatham sports programs and athletic facilities in conjunction with the local governments.
