Staying true to their seventy-four year legacy of raising funds to distribute to local charities, on November, 14, 2019, fifty-eight of Monmouth County’s nonprofit organizations took center stage at Monmouth Park Racetrack as Monmouth Park Charity Fund held its 72nd Annual Distribution of Funds Tea. Named after the late Roberta O. Fox, the event was held in the stunning Turf Club were these select organizations were awarded grants for specific programs that provide critical assistance to those at risk and those in need of special services in our community. In a very moving ceremony, representatives from each agency shared how these funds would impact the lives of people in our community.
