BOUND BROOK WOMEN OF THE MOOSE RAISE $4,800 TO SUPPORT THE STEEPLECHASE CANCER CENTER

The Bound Brook Women of the Moose #1232 recently presented a check for $4,766 to Somerset Health Care Foundation to support The Steeplechase Cancer Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset. The funds were raised through the group’s annual spaghetti dinner, which included raffles of baskets donated by members and local businesses and program ad sales. Monetary donations from members and local businesses were also collected to support the cancer center. Since 2011, the Bound Brook Women of the Moose #1232 has raised more than $36,000 for the cancer center through their spaghetti dinners.
