When the going gets tough, New Jersey folks get going—volunteering in an impressive number of ways. Seven years ago, we created the Garden State Seeds of Hope Awards to honor the achievements of some of our state’s most dedicated volunteers. We do so with the help of a distinguished panel of judges, which this year consisted of Matthew W. Barnes of ASG Advisors, Newark; Louis Bezich of Camden County College, Blackwood; Mary G. Horn of Weichert Realtors, Morristown; and Ed Remsen of the American Heart Association, Robbinsville. The judges selected six winners from a pool of 42 exceptional nominees. We will honor the winners at a luncheon September 21 in Livingston at the Crystal Plaza, a co-sponsor of the awards along with PNC Wealth Management and Reno’s Appliance.
