CareOne Presents 200 Wishes

Recently, #HipNJ was at CareOne’s 200 Wishes fundraiser at the Prudential Center. This family-fun event was held in order to support Make-A-Wish New Jersey.

Make-A-Wish New Jersey helps grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions throughout New Jersey. The goal of the event was to raise enough money to literally grant 200 wishes. The average cost of a wish is about $10,000.

CareOne and Make-A-Wish turned the Prudential Center into a life size candyland. There were numerous activities for children to participate in. Children could ice skate, play carnival games, make a build-a-bear, get their faces painted/hair braided, or interact with the many costumed characters at the event!

200 Wishes was also graced with the presence of a few celebrity guests. Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan attended the event and dazzled the crowd with an exciting ice routine. New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider was also in attendance. The beautiful Miss New Jersey, Brenna Weick also present during the event.

With services that include post-hospital care, rehabilitation, assisted living, long-term care and a variety of clinical specialty programs, CareOne offers compassionate care in gracious, professionally managed centers and communities. CareOne serves thousands of patients every day and admits/discharges more than 20,000 patients every year.

CareOne of Hanover Township’s Third Anniversary Bash with RHONJ’s Kathy Wakile

On Thursday, June 11th, CareOne at Hanover Township celebrated their third anniversary with over 150 guests!

#HipNJ’s Kelly Dillon spoke with the night’s keynote guests, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Kathy Wakile and her mother, Maria Pierri.  The duo gave a cannoli filling demonstration featuring product from her Indulge line, which includes desserts, specialty coffees, and more.

The mother-daughter team talked about the importance of satisfying your sweet tooth with real desserts through portion control. In Kathy’s cannoli kits, each serving is satisfying and under 100 calories (despite accents of pistachios, chocolate chips, Oreos and sprinkles!) Following the demonstration, Kathy signed copies of her book and took photos with fans.

Besides getting to know their favorite “Housewife”, attendees were treated to the finest music, food, wine, and more!

Upon entry, everyone was greeted with champagne and strawberries.  The Italian-themed fare was catered by Calabria of Livingston, who provided imported cheeses and prosciutto, garlic shrimp, fresh pastries, and more.  Wine tasting was offered by Cambridge Wines, who offered an exquisite selection of their reds and whites to try.  The salted caramel samplings by Enjou of Morristown were a fan favorite, along with their milk chocolate “3” favors.

“We are so happy about the turnout,” gushed Shirley Cabildo, a CareOne at Hanover Township Administrator.  “The support of the community is overwhelming, and it’s nice to see how they want us to succeed!”

At CareOne at Hanover Township, their compassionate, professional staff provides post-surgical care and nursing services. You’ll rest easy knowing that you or your loved ones are receiving round-the-clock care in a comfortable and supportive setting.  The facility is one of 29 throughout the Garden State, and treats over 20,000 patients each year.
