2019-2020 Annual Highlights
I received super great news from our FF warrior Grace “Cookie” West from Freehold. After a long-time battle, then a relapse, and another very tough battle , Cookie’s scans are finally & officially clear !!!!
Cookie is very excited, and so are we, so join me in congratulating Cookie & we couldn’t be happier and more excited for and with her.
As a friendly reminder, Cookie was a co-host of our October 2020 Virtual Gala along with her buddy FF Jr. Trustee Sydney Rubman. See attached photo. Cookie’s fight goes back to 2014 or so ( maybe earlier) ; & attached is a photo of Cookie with our angel Sami on the Santa cruise in December 2015, almost 6 years ago. This fall Cookie will be going to college at NYU !!
We will celebrate this great news with Cookie, and more warriors, at our Saturday, July 10th picnic and softball tournament.
