CBCF TO HOST 10TH ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC

2017 Gold Outing

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will host its 10th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, August 7th at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., site of the USGA 2012 Men’s Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and has been one of Golf Week’s “Top 100 Classic Courses in America.”

The annual “Pink is the New Green®” event is one of the most popular and successful events sponsored by CBCF having raised millions to assist the efforts of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor, Dr. Larry Norton.  Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.

Reservations are now open for both the morning and afternoon sessions of The Golf Classic.  The morning session will begin at 7:00 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m.  The afternoon session will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration and breakfast and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.  An $18,000 winner-take-all-chip-off will take place immediately following conclusion of play.

The day concludes with a cocktail reception and awards dinner where Dr. Norton will address guests.  A raffle drawing will also be held for a 2017 Ford Mustang convertible, courtesy of Fette Ford. Those interested in participating in the 10th Annual Golf Classic can call (973) 471-CBCF (2223) or email register@curebreastcancerfoundation.org.

“Pink is the New Green was one of our first large-scale fundraising efforts and we’re incredibly proud of its growth in the past decade,” says Andrew Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF.  “Of course, its success would not be possible without the commitment of the many participants, volunteers, corporate sponsors and business leaders who have kindly dedicated resources and time.  Their tireless efforts on behalf of CBCF have enabled us to support Dr. Norton’s important research and work towards finding a cure for breast cancer.”

CBCF is a Clifton, N.J.-based 501(c) (3) charity.  The organization has raised in excess of $6.5 million to assist the dedicated team of physicians and scientists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and New Jersey and their national and international collaborators.  Fully 100% of the net fundraising proceeds received by the foundation are donated towards research projects coordinated by Dr. Norton.

Declutter (In a Big Way!)

untitledI recently moved to a new place, and most of my things came with me. The moving process gave me a much-needed opportunity to survey the things I own and decide if I wanted to keep them and bring them to the new place, or find a new home for them (which, yeah, includes the trash can in a few instances).

It was tough to decide what would stay and what would go, but one question helped me along the way:

If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?

Imagine you’re in a store, holding the object in your hand. Would you pay to bring it home? If so, then it’s an easy addition to the “keep” pile. If not, you have a little more fuel to help you decide it needs to find its way out of your home.

It applies to clothes and decor, to tech and to tools. And this one question causes you to weigh in on a few other considerations at the same time:

Preview Sales Launch for Signature 14-Story Condominium Building With 204 Luxury Homes, Magnificent Views and World Class Amenities

Principals of DMG Investments joined Cliffside Park Mayor Thomas Calabrese and other dignitaries to celebrate the opening of an on-site Sales Gallery at One Park, a new 204-unit luxury condominium building rising atop the Palisades in this Bergen County, N.J. borough.

The completed Sales Gallery, which features interactive visual displays, a kitchen vignette with authentic finishes and appointments, and a model representation of the building, marks the launch of preview sales at One Park in advance of its official grand opening.  The dramatic space also reveals the building’s unimpeded Hudson River and Manhattan skyline views.

“This is an exciting milestone for both our new luxury condominium building and the borough of Cliffside Park,” said Jacky He, Executive Vice President of DMG Investments, which is developing One Park and tapped Halstead Property Development Marketing (HPDM) as the building’s exclusive sales and marketing agent.

“We’re investing in Cliffside Park because we recognize the extraordinary qualities present here.  Our location perfectly reflects the borough’s atmosphere, a tranquil, suburban setting that’s complemented by an eclectic offering of local shops and restaurants, proximity to Manhattan, and convenient access to a wealth of lifestyle attractions along the Hudson River. One Park will enhance the unique character and convenience of Cliffside Park with a level of modern luxury traditionally found in Manhattan.”

“I’m delighted to help celebrate the opening of this beautiful new sales gallery,” added Mayor Calabrese.  “We continue to look for ways to grow our community smartly and responsibly in ways that will benefit all of our residents.  You see that today with the progress of One Park.  It’s clear that this will be an exceptional new residential development that we will all be proud of.”
