Madison, NJ – March 10, 2011 – The Madison Education Foundation accepted a donation of $2,000 from Brinton Eaton, a Madison wealth advisory firm, on Wednesday, March 9th for its upcoming Madison 5K Race being held May 1st at Madison High School. This GOLD SPONSORSHIP donation level is double the amount Brinton Eaton contributed last year and is a much-needed boost for this critical annual fundraiser.
“On behalf of the Madison Education Foundation Board, I want to thank Brinton Eaton for their continued support of our 5K and for the significant increase in this year’s sponsorship level,” says Madison 5K Sponsorship Chair Kathleen Fowler. “We are really relying on local businesses to assist us in increasing our profits from this year’s race. The Foundation awarded 22 grants totaling $45,500 in the fall and we are currently reviewing grant proposals in excess of $xxxx. Funds from this 5K will help support this last round of grant applications.”
“The Madison Education Foundation plays a valuable role in enriching the lives of Madison school children, through its fundraising and support for teacher innovation. We are honored to have the opportunity to support their 5K this year, and hope it will be a huge success,” says Robert J. DiQuollo, president of Brinton Eaton.
The Madison 5K –5K for 5 Schools Run — is a family day that includes a run, fitness walk and children’s fun run. “This has really become an annual event that Madisonians look forward to each year. Last year’s event drew more than 400 participants and included food, entertainment and prizes. Sponsors of this event are supporting a community-wide health day and raising funds to support all five Madison public schools. It’s a win-win for everyone involved,” says Foundation President Anne Hargrave.
