It takes a community to create hope and healing. This year, that community includes The Rotary Club of Phillipsburg.
The New Jersey based club’s mission is simple but profound, to “provide service above self.” For more than 80 years, they’ve been doing just that, improving their community by supporting first responders, providing resources for organizations fighting opioid abuse, raising money for students attending college and fighting food insecurity. This year, their service includes cancer patients and caregivers, as the club hosts their 2021 Golf Outing to benefit Cancer Hope Network. The event will be held Monday, September 27th at Oak Hill Golf Club.

“Cancer Hope Network is grateful to the Phillipsburg Rotary for their support of our mission,” said CHN Executive Director Cynthia Gutierrez Bernstein. “The cancer patients and caregivers we serve are fortunate to have this dedicated community of volunteers, donors and sponsors in their corner.”
The Rotary will be recognized as the Flame of Courage award sponsor at Cancer Hope Network’s own outing (rescheduled for August 30.” The award recognizes an organization or individual who Has shown exceptional courage, spirit, and determination in the face of their own cancer fight or has helped others through theirs.”
For the Rotary, the decision to make Cancer Hope Network this year’s primary beneficiary was simple.
“It is an unfortunate fact of life that cancer affects many of us – and the Rotary Club of Phillipsburg is no exception,” said Todd Tersigni Rotary president and Phillipsburg mayor. “We are proud to champion Cancer Hope Network because they provide support for people facing cancer at many points on their journey. Our club has members who have found support being matched with a CHN volunteer – and our immediate past president serves as a volunteer with the group.”
