About The Ashley Lauren Foundation: Unlike national organizations that fund research, The Ashley Lauren Foundation is an independent New Jersey based 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, working hands-on with each family. The Ashley Lauren Foundation depends on the support of the community-at-large in order to provide immediate relief for the daily burdens thrust upon those who are battling pediatric cancer.

About Friends of Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center: The Friends of the Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center (MCCAC) is a volunteer driven 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Their mission is to raise funds to complete construction of a child friendly facility, by continuing to develop community awareness and to support a coordinated response to child abuse. Formed in 2003 by a group of individuals in the Monmouth County community, The Friends sought to raise the funds needed to build a full service Child Advocacy Center in Monmouth County. The County donated land on Kozloski Road in Freehold, NJ and the project was begun. A Child Advocacy Center offers an integrated, multidisciplinary, child-friendly approach to the investigation and treatment of sexual and physical abuse of children.

About The Tigger House Foundation: Tigger House Inc. was inspired by the devastating suffering and profound love of a family who lost their son and brother “Tigger” at 25 years of age to an accidental overdose. The Tigger House Foundation is based in Monmouth County. Tigger grew up on the Jersey Shore where he went to school, was loved by many friends and family and lived a very full life. Tigger’s family is active as philanthropists in the community. They have courageously decided to honor their son and take a resolute stand to fight the raging opiate/heroin epidemic devastating our youth. The Tigger House Foundation is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Learn more at: tiggerhouse.org.
