“It is an honor to be chosen as Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for FCS, Monmouth County’s oldest non-profit service agency. I’m proud to add my name to the long list of esteemed Chairs who have served this community over the last century. I look forward with great anticipation to working with CEO Colleen Verriest, who has built a brilliant and dedicated team that never falters in keeping FCS on mission. It’s truly my privilege to help address the needs of the community during the most challenging
times of their lives.”
In December of 1956, Olivia Dutcher, a longtime FCS Board member, invited a group of women to her home to discuss the formation of a Rumson-Fair Haven auxiliary to support the mission of the agency. The informal get-together on a chilly winter day in March 1957 evolved into The Navarumsunk Auxiliary. The group took its name from the Native American tribe that once inhabited the island. Since then, this group of active community volunteers has helped raise thousands of dollars and much-needed awareness of Family & Children’s Service programs and services.
The Auxiliary hosts several fundraisers throughout the year to support the agency. Its premier event, the Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, now in its 61st year, will take place Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at Branches in West Long Branch.
In the fall, Auxiliary holds its annual Navarumsunk Bridge Benefit, a duplicate bridge tournament and luncheon where Master Points are awarded. The tournament raises more than $5,000 for FCS programs and services annually.
