PEI Kids Organizes Diaper Drive to Benefit the Children of Hurricane Sandy

Nov. 6, 2012-LAWRENCE, N.J.–As a result of Hurricane Sandy, PEI Kids – a nonprofit organization serving children and families in Mercer County – has rescheduled its Seventh Annual “Tasting in Titusville” from Friday, November 2 to Thursday, November 29 and has organized a diaper drive for the children affected by Hurricane Sandy to be a part of the annual fundraiser.  The event will be held at the Union Firehouse, 1396 River Road (Route 29), Titusville, NJ, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Individuals attending the Tasting are asked to bring diapers to donate. Diapers donated at the event will go directly to New Jersey children and families affected by the storm.

“Our first priority at PEI Kids is to keep our children safe,” said Penny Ettinger, Executive Director of PEI Kids. “And with the disastrous effect of this devastating storm, we knew we could make a positive impact on those children and families of New Jersey by concentrating our efforts in helping them while holding our annual fundraiser to support our work,” she added.

The Tasting event will feature 100 red and white wines, as well as food from a number of local restaurants and cake vendors.  Wines will be provided courtesy of ShopRite Liquors of Pennington. Hors d’oeuvres are generously donated by Bitter Bob’s, Café Mulino, Cairo Cakes, Cuginos Italian Specialties, El Taco Loco, El Tule Restaurant, It’s Nutt’s Restaurant, Maddalena’s Cheesecake & Catering, Palace of Asia, Patriots Crossing, Sal de Fortes Ristorante, and the Yahweh Bread Co.  Tickets are $60 per person or two for $100.  All proceeds from the event will help PEI Kids expand its child-focused programs and services.
