Giving Tuesday with #HipNJ

Yesterday was an eventful Giving Tuesday filled with generous donations towards the opening of the Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. We had the chance to go live with various folks who all share our passion and excitement for the opening of this center and the great work it is sure to do for patients to come! 

We are so close to our goal of $5,000 raised, help us reach our goal and make a positive difference for so many lives! You can Donate Here!

Check out these interviews all recorded live yesterday hosted by ABC7NY’s very own NJ Burkett and the VP of the Trinitas Health Foundation Nadine Brechner!

Let your generosity spill over from Tuesday and help us reach our fundraising goal, donate today – every little bit counts!

#GivingTuesday with the Connie Dwyer Breast Center

Tomorrow is  #GivingTuesday and the perfect opportunity to give after winding down from a holiday weekend (right before diving into, let’s be honest, a holiday month!) Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth is still collecting donations for their newest addition, The Connie Dwyer Breast Center, in order to best serve the people that come through their doors to fight breast cancer, no matter their finances.

Patients of the breast center love the care they receive from every member of the staff, saying “from the doctors, to the nurses, to the techs, everyone is just amazing.”

To those suffering from breast cancer, and even those with loved ones suffering, the right care and sensitivity is paramount when trying to overcome this illness. The opening of The Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas will bring genuine kindness and excellent medical care to more patients in need than ever before. 

As you make plans with your family to travel or stay in, perhaps making gingerbread houses or spending the day decorating your home for the holidays, spare a few minutes to donate this #GivingTuesday, because for so many people, your generosity means no less than the world.

“Give so everyone in our community has a chance to beat breast cancer”

Embracing Hope: The 12th Annual Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation Gala

Earlier this month The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ had the distinct honor of hosting the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation‘s 12th annual Gala. The annual gala has been a staple for the foundations for years, but this year there is more to celebrate than usual with the opening of the new Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ.

Many were in attendance at the Gala, eager to donate to the cause via raffle, auction, or any other means – anything to show support for the wonderful foundation, and the woman at the forefront, Connie Dwyer herself.

The Vice President of Trinitas, Nadine Brechner, expressed nothing but love and admiration for the cause when interviewed by our very own Maria Falzo, saying “the Connie Dwyer foundation has the most amazing people that are committed to helping people less fortunate than themselves.” 

Attendees included members of the staff and board of Trinitas Medical Center, members of Connie Dwyer Breast Center, the Vice President of Neiman Marcus, Connie Dwyer’s three daughters Becky, Maureen, and Susan – and countless friends, family, and various others who believe in the foundations mission of maintaining breast health and treating breast cancer, no matter your wealth or background.
