Saturday night was a big night for the great folks at the Ashley Lauren Foundation. It was the annual Butterfly Ball and, thanks to the generosity of some amazing people, it was a huge success!

The gala was held at the Ocean Place Resort and Spa in Long Branch and it was a night of great food, entertainment and heartfelt generosity. The event raised over $150,000 for an organization that provides hope and help for children with cancer and their families.

If you don't know about the Ashley Lauren Foundation, I urge you to find out about it. This is a group of wonderful people who make it a priority in their lives to do whatever they can to help these great kids and their families. Get more info on their incredble story at their website www.ashleylaurenfoundation.org.

I hosted the auction part of the event and just wanted to thank everybody who got involved for their amazing generosity. You really made a difference for some terrific families in New Jersey. Thank you so much!
