The Holidays are about giving thanks and reflecting upon our own good fortune and consequently thinking about those who are in need, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Caroling for a Cause will take place in front of Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen on Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24th 2016 at 3:30 pm in Morristown New Jersey. Revelers will be serenaded with Christmas and Holiday Songs while enjoying Hot Chocolate and Potato Latkes and Apple Sauce. We suggest a Donation of $20 that day from all attendees.
In the meantime, we ask that you give what you can to feed and clothe the Homeless at the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown which was run courageously and brilliantly by Marla Drury, who sadly passed away from Cancer this year and who was a dear friend to many of us in the community.
I first met Marla Drury a year before Jockey Hollow's journey began, to discuss the possibility of working with the Soup Kitchen to make the Restaurant's Opening an event to benefit the Homeless. She and her partner Terry Connolly impressed me with their inherent decency, warmth, compassion and above all their humor, and we were all incredibly successful in raising $50,000 on that wild and wonderful evening in 2014 when the Newark Color Guard's bagpipes anointed the restaurant's staircase. Over these last few years, the girls were regular patrons at the Vail Bar and we would always throw back a few and discuss how the Soup Kitchen was faring, if they would have to move etc. Marla never let anyone know that she was terminally ill because she never looked for approbation or credit. She was a truly beautiful and spiritually rich human being that we should honor and remember. We Need to Raise Double of What We Achieved Two Years Ago to Let Her Know That She Mattered.
$100,000 or Bust!!!!!!!!!
Wishing You and Your Families a Wonderful Holiday Season and Blessings in the New Year.
