The Senior Care Services of NJ (SCS, formerly known as Senior Care Ministry of Princeton) will be celebrating 30-plus years of community service to the greater Princeton area with Gin & Jazz, a dinner and silent auction, on Thursday, November 2 at 6pm, with a pre-party beginning at 5pm.

The music-filled event will take place at Trenton Country Club, 201 Sullivan Way, Ewing, NJ, and will celebrate four honorees: G. Alan Sullivan, Thomas A. Bracken, Laura & Joseph Sarubbi, and BHHS Fox & Roach Realtors (Princeton Office). This is the SCS’s third annual benefit dinner, and this year’s silent auction winnings will feature an African safari trip, tickets to shows from McCarter Theatre’s 2017-2018 season, a golf outing for four at Jasna Polana, and more. Proceeds from the evening will go toward supporting the work of the SCS.

The Senior Care Services, first established in 1984, under the aegis of St. Paul Church in Princeton, now serves the wider community as an independent non-denominational organization. A pioneer in the “aging in place” movement, the SCS helps seniors remain safely in the comfort of their own homes as long as possible, focusing on simple neighborly acts of kindness.

The SCS organizes a network of some 50 volunteers to assist approximately seventy clients with rides to health-care related appointments, shopping, and friendly visits.

“The SCS has been supported by us for years because of the dedicated volunteers that touch the lives” of its clients, noted honoree BHHS Fox & Roach Realtors’ Gerri Grassi,” said honoree Thomas A. Bracken, president and CEO of the NJ State Chamber of Commerce. “With a mission of giving back and enriching the lives of our older generations, SCS keeps our community thriving, and I’m honored to be recognized by such a worthy organization.”

The other two honorees for this year’s Gin & Jazz are equally committed to serving the community at large: G. Alan Sullivan, former president of the SCS Board of Trustees, served on the board for over twenty years, and continues to work toward the greater good; Laura & Joseph Sarubbi have been parishioners of St. Paul Church for nearly twenty years, and since joining, have dedicated themselves to a lifetime of service in the community.
