TEANECK, N.J. -- The 13th annual Chopstix party benefiting Tomorrow's Children at Hackensack University Medical Center will take place Monday, Jan. 11, in Teaneck.
The party will be held from 6:15-8:40 p.m. at the Moose lodge, 201 W. Englewood Ave., Teaneck.
The cost of admission is an unwrapped new gift for young patients in treatment at Tomorrow’s Children. In addition to food from Chopstix, Dougie’s of Teaneck, Glatt Express, Medeterania, Chickie’s, Poppy’s & Butterflake, there will be live music and entertainment.
“Each year we are able to contribute more and more to brighten the holidays of children who are desperately ill,” said Chopstix owner Elie Y. Katz. “It is an incredible feeling to see both the outpouring of support from our customers and friends and the joy from the hospital community.”
The party is also sponsored by Councilman Mark Schwartz, Camp Mesorah, The Jewish Link, Eli Auto, Trophy King, Camp Mesorah, Moose Lodge, Magic Masters Entertainment and Binyomin Ginzberg. Tomorrow’s Children at Hackensack University Medical Center treats and offers support to young people and their families with cancer and other serious illnesses.
“Several years ago we wanted to thank our friends and customers,” said Chopstix partner Uri Herzog. “But we also thought, 'Let’s turn this into something that helps others, too.' And so the holiday party was born.”
