2018 Annual Champagne Brunch

Come. Sit. Enjoy.

Join us on Sunday, October 21, 2018 from 11:00am – 2:30pm at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany for some tail wagging fun. This important event provides essential funds to fulfill our mission of bringing therapeutic healing visits to so many in need. It is a time to celebrate all that CCPT has accomplished and all that it seeks to achieve.

Featuring a new venue, new menu, lots of bubbly and great auction items, the event will be kicked off by our beautiful and dedicated therapy team greeters in the lobby. This will be a perfect photo op and a chance for you to see some of the teams that allow us to provide more than 3700 visits to 197 facilities and help 74,000 people annually.

Be prepared to bid on some amazing and unique items such as:

  • Signed copies of bestselling author David Rosenfelt’s books, including his latest Andy Carpenter novel, “Rescued”, along with the right to be named as a character in one of his upcoming books.  

  • One week stay at a condo on Sanibel Island, FL (dates TBD)

  • Lithographed signed picture of Antonio Brown, NFL All-Pro wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers

Eat. Drink. Be Giving.

Bring your appetite, because the robust menu is sure to be paw-sitively delicious!  

Enjoy muffins, Danish, crudités, cheese & crackers, hot & cold buffet (including egg dishes and lunch items), carving stations, tossed salad, Waldorf salad, deviled eggs, chicken salad, seafood salad, fresh seasonal fruits, juice station, soft drinks, coffee / tea bar, a dessert extravaganza with an assortment of cakes, mousses, gelatins, and lots of bubbly poured throughout the entire event.  

Our host for the event will be Heather O’Rourke, pet therapy team member (with her dog, Rocco) and Traffic Anchor for WABC-TV Eyewitness News in the Morning.

The 5 Paw Sponsor and Honoree for this year’s event is Summit Medical Group Foundation, which was established in 2013 by Summit Medical Group (“SMG”), New Jersey’s oldest and largest private multispecialty physician group, to grow its culture of philanthropy and further its nearly 100-year legacy of providing programs and services that extend far beyond traditional medical care.

CCPT pet therapy teams visit SMG’s comprehensive care facilities twice a week to bring healing comfort to cancer patients.
