The Brookdale Community College Foundation Scholarship Summer Bash was held recently in the Donald D. Warner Student Life Center and outdoor patio on the college campus in Lincroft and raised more than $200,000.

More than 200 attendees celebrated and showed their appreciation to the five honored Monmouth County hospitals: Bayshore Medical Center, Frank Citara; CentraState Medical Center, John Gibbin; Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Vito Buccellato; Monmouth Medical Center, Eric Carney; and Riverview Medical Center, Timothy Hogan; and all of their COVID response team members, according to a press release.

Carol Stillwell, co-chair with Karen Escobedo and Candy Langen-Sattenspiel, led a live appeal. Dr. Susan Whyman, vice president of the Brookdale Foundation and the Frank Whyman Scholarship sponsor, made the first donation, according to the press release.

“During the pandemic, I had a secret weapon that made each day a day filled with sunshine,” Whyman said. “The scholarship students at this college were there to give me hope. These students are now a treasured part of my life and they never fail to inspire me. They get good grades and they work more than one job, they also volunteer in the community and have a passion that drives them to give their families a better life.”

Brookdale Community College is the county college of Monmouth County.
