Meridian Health Affiliated Foundations Hosts 2010 Runway On The River Kick-Off

Highly anticipated fashion event to benefit K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital hosts kick-off.  

Neptune, NJ - K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital signature fund raising event, Runway on the River, is back for a second year!  This unique event centers around a high end fashion show, featuring the styles of several of the area’s finest boutiques and will take place on Saturday, May 22.  This event was first held in May of 2008 and raised over$117,000.

A kick-off reception was held on the evening of March 3, at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.  Most significantly, attendees were able to tour the newly renovated pediatric inpatient unit.  This provided an outstanding opportunity for attendees to see where funds raised at the inaugural event were used, and where funds raised this year will continue to be steered to further improvements in the facility and care for the children of our area.

The second annual Runway on the River will be held on Saturday, May 22, at the K. Hovnanian Enterprises Building in Red Bank at 7:00 p.m.  Guests at this year’s event will enjoy an extravagant fashion show, a decadent cocktail reception, and can take part in an exciting live auction and 50/50 raffle chances. Tickets, sponsorships opportunities, and journal advertisements are currently available.
