Shore House is celebrating 5 years of building hope at its Beacon of Hope fundraising event at Rumson Country Club’s Riverhouse with cocktails by the river on Sunday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m. Susan and David Fowler and The Two River Community Bank will be honored in recognition of their support and dedication to Shore House’s mission since its inception five years ago. The program will include a live auction featuring opportunities to support Shore House through purchasing wonderful vacation packages, unique tours and events.
“Shore House has gained the support of the wider community and we recognize the Fowlers and The Two River Community Bank for their commitment to our success. Both have been extraordinarily helpful. We are proud that nearly 40% of Shore House members are employed or attend school. These figures are well above the national average,” said Susan Sandlass, Board President. The World Health Organization reports that one in four people will be affected by some form mental illness at some point in their lives, placing mental illness among the leading causes of ill health and disability worldwide.
Shore House helps its members regain self-worth and confidence, restart their lives, recover and develop new skills and rejoin their communities through employment, education and service.
