Township Committee Attends Middletown Elks Lodge #2179 Charity Ball on Friday, March 9th

The Middletown Elks's Special Children's Committee held its biggest fundraiser of the year, the 52nd Charity Ball, at the Gramercy in Hazlet on Friday, March 9th. All proceeds from this affair enable the committee to continue its vital work assisting and enhancing the lives of our Special Children.

This year's honoree was 12-year-old Caleigh Brennan. Caleigh was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of 4 and has spent years smiling in the face of many challenges. Caleigh's parents, Brandi and Marc Brennan, and her siblings have done a wonderful job supporting her and helping her thrive. 

Middletown Township is fortunate to have an Elks Lodge that is so integrally involved in our community and our children.

Thank you to all who were involved in this very special event!
