Blood Drive Honoring Michael Sot sponsored by Garwood KofC @ Church of St Anne
Feb 23 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Blood Drive Honoring Michael Sot sponsored by Garwood KofC @ Church of St Anne | Garwood | New Jersey | United States

The Garwood Knights of Columbus welcome friends and our local communities to donate and help save lives in Honor of Michael Sot. We like to thank Michael’s parents and family for allowing us to Honor Michael.

Michael Thomas Sot was a loving, smart, responsible and always caring son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and friend to all who knew him! Michael was a 2017 Arthur L. Johnson HS Honors graduate and lifelong Clark resident. At 20 yo he was a college sophomore at The College of New Jersey majoring in Math. He joined the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. Early December 2, 2018, he was a designated driver for an off-campus frat event when tragedy struck. He, three frat brothers, a sorority sister, and another college student were hit by an alleged impaired driver. Two days later, Michael died. During his hospitalization and the other victims care, they needed multiple life-sustaining blood transfusions. Volunteering your blood could help so many like Michael. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Did you know 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood? Only 10% of the eligible population donates blood.
When you donate blood, it doesn’t just help people during disasters. From surgery to fighting cancer to giving birth, blood donations are used to save around 12,000 lives a day. A lot of the medical care we take for granted wouldn’t exist without blood donations.

Blood Drive held at St. Anne’s Garwood. Park in the lot and follow signs to Bethlehem Room.

Polenta Party @ A Toute Heure
Feb 24 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Polenta Party @ A Toute Heure | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

This Sunday will be the start of a new tradition at A Toute Heure that takes equal parts from the history of the restaurant as well as the heritage of the chef and owners – Sunday Supper! Now that brunch is every Sunday we thought it would be appropriate to start opening up for dinner the last Sunday of the month. This month the theme will be a Polenta Party! This is a traditional dinner party originating in Northern Italy where everyone gets together and feasts on polenta and braised meats (though you’ll be just fine if you’re a vegetarian). Everyone will sit down at 6:30 pm and the three-course meal will begin. Bring a nice bottle of red wine! We thought it was also appropriate to collaborate with our friends Nick and Kim of Fat, Drunk and Fancy for this one – so expect to see their beautiful faces! Can’t wait for this!

Reservations are strongly encouraged as we are only a 12 table restaurant. Call us at (908)-276-6600 or make a reservation by clicking the “book now” button on the top right of our page!
