They use all funds raised to enrich the lives of residents and patients by obtaining items that may include televisions, DVD players and prizes for their bingo games as well as paying for a variety of entertainment throughout the year. The Guild, which makes vendor sales possible, also sponsors a holiday party/gift distribution and a summer ice cream social in cooperation with the Berkeley Heights Lions Club.”
