Celebrate the Holidays with Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc.

Bell Works will be the site of a uniquely elegant venue for the Hope for Children Foundation gala fundraiser.

On Saturday, December 2, Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc. is hosting a Mix, Mingle, & Jingle Wine Tasting at Bell Works in Holmdel from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Join the members of the foundation to kick off the holiday season in style, while helping raise money for children and families in need within Monmouth County.  This is the second wine tasting event that the organization has had at Bell Works, with the first being a sold-out, hugely successful evening.

This year’s event honors Michael and Tiffanie Salerno, who have been key supporters of the foundation since its inception. Michael is president and CEO of Northeast Professional Planning Group, Inc. and is second vice president on the board of trustees for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth County. Tiffanie is managing member of Eagan & Associates, founding member of Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc., and a board of trustees member for the ARC of Monmouth County.  Together, they reside in Oceanport and are raising two beautiful boys.

Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc. will also be presenting a Humanitarian/Service Award to Carmine and Phyllis Visone. This very deserving couple own Home Away from Home Academy (HAFHA) in Aberdeen, have authored “The Visone Method,” and are truly philanthropic members of the community. For the past four years, Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc. has partnered with HAFHA for their annual toy drive, which has helped more than 200 families in need during the holiday season.

The night promises to be a memorable one. Featured events include silent and live gift auctions, 12 Nights of Giving Cash Raffle (12 identified cases will benefit from this; stay tuned for more information on the selected, well-deserving families), catered hors d’oeuvres and food stations from the award-winning David Ellis Events, premium tasting experience with dozens of wine, liquor, and beer vendors donated by The Wine Academy, a handcrafted cigar station, professional DJ and dance floor, and various live entertainers.

Don’t miss this perfect holiday kickoff! Tickets are $200 per person, and there are also exciting sponsorship opportunities available. Register today at before it’s sold out.

Hope for Children Foundation New Jersey, Inc. is not to be confused with the Hope for Children Foundation of Dallas, Texas which holds the Trademark to that name.
