Earlier this month, Harrogate Executive Director Charles Benjamin and Life Care Consultant Valerie Jacoby participated in a “Dancing with Their Stars” fundraising event, where they tore up the dance floor in support of local seniors.
The dance competition, held at Lakewood’s Eagle Ridge Golf Club, was sponsored by the Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ), which offers aid to homebound older adults in Ocean and southern Monmouth counties. Six local “celebrity” couples took part in the event, which was inspired by the ABC television hit Dancing with the Stars. The event also included celebrity judge Jax, a Season XIV contestant on the TV show.
Benjamin said it was an honor to take part in an event that was geared toward making a difference in seniors’ lives.
“As a senior living professional, I know how important it is for seniors to receive the best care and amenities for daily living,” said Benjamin. “It was wonderful to see the local community come together in support of their well-being.”
Jacoby couldn’t agree more. She’s looking forward to Harrogate offering its support to similar causes in the future.
“The event was not only fun, but it was a great example of the good that can be achieved when we all work together,” said Jacoby. “The Harrogate team would like to thank the CVCJ for giving us the opportunity to lend a helping hand.”
