East Brunswick, New Jersey - Right at Home of Central New Jersey is proud to announce that the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation has been established as the official charity of Right at Home of Central New Jersey. Our Owner and Executive Director, Beth Sholom, is the Founder and CEO of the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation.
For many years, Beth Sholom has advocated and raised money for various Alzheimer’s charities in order to find a cure for Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases. She has organized and hosted 2 “Smash Out Alzheimer’s” events, the first in 2017 and the second in 2019. Both events included decorating pumpkins, gift baskets auctioned off, refreshments, pumpkin smashing, live music, and local vendors and artisans selling seasonal and holiday merchandise. The end result of both events was not only raising awareness of the need for more research into finding a cure for Alzheimer’s but – thanks to all who attended, donated, participated and entertained – raising many thousands of dollars which was donated to Alzheimer’s New Jersey.
Prior to both of our Smash Out Alzheimer’s events, we completed many successful in-person and online fundraisers, including partnering with such generous companies as Yankee Candle, Pampered Chef and LuLaRoe.
This past summer we created the “Shed the COVID-19” fundraising event in which participants committed to donating $1 for every pound they lost over a 2-month period, with all monies being donated to Alzheimer’s New Jersey.
Because so many of Right at Home of Central New Jersey’s past and present clients suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Beth Sholom has always been passionate about finding a cure for this insidious disease. She decided to form a 501c3 tax-exempt organization to be able to raise funds for Alzheimer’s-related organizations on an ongoing basis all year long. We are proud today to announce that Beth’s dream has been realized and we have received designation for the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation to continue our fundraising efforts until a cure is found!
