Bergen Networking Group Fundraiser Benefiting “Heroes to Heroes” Helps Local Veterans with PTSD

A fundraising event for Heroes to Heroes Foundation on July 7th raised awareness and funds for helping local veterans.

Englewood, NJ – 7/7/2015 -- Knowing how to network is invaluable in business and in life, but it is a skill that must be learned, honed, and practiced consistently to achieve success. Supporting our local organizations and businesses is an important step in connecting them to the right people and services needed. The members of Bergen Networking Group understand this.

The networking group partners with local clubs, organizations and businesses. "This event helps raise awareness of a wonderful non-profit that is helping our local veterans who suffer from moral injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder. It's my hope the Heroes to Heroes Foundation gets all the support they need to continue to carry on with their mission.” said Fernando Sosa, CEO of HaonTech.com and president of Bergen Networking Group.

As an effort to raise funds for helping veterans, celebrate the groups' 10 year anniversary and celebrate our countries’ independence, Bergen Networking Group organized a fundraising event at Blue Moon Mexican Café in Englewood on July 7th, 2015.  The event was a success in raising awareness and funds.  Thanks to Blue Moon’s Community Night, 20% of attendees’ bill will be donated to Heroes to Heroes Foundation.

"Thank you to the entire Bergen Networking Group for your support of Heroes to Heroes Foundation. Your hard work and generosity will help save the lives of some of our most vulnerable veterans.” said Judy I. Schaffer, founder and president of Heroes to Heroes Foundation.

Those present from the group included Michael Baer, Larry Bauer, Kelly Cassidy, Venessa DiBona, Tamarha Ellerbe, Jennifer Glass, Cathy Green, Jill Kravitz, Elvin Lopez, Ray Turkin and Liz Santos.

In addition to raising funds for Heroes to Heroes, members also donated cash, soccer balls, back packs and other sporting goods for a mission trip to Ghana, Africa where Michael Baer from Law Offices of Michael Baer will travel for the third year to help children in need. “These donations will be brought to the schoolchildren of Awate Torno, Ghana.  These are recently rescued child slaves that are now in school and with foster families” said Baer.
