areOne, a premier family-owned healthcare company with more than 30 centers in New Jersey, hosted a wildly successful fundraiser for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico on October 19 in New York City. The star-studded event, aptly titled “Starry Night Masquerade”, was spearheaded by CareOne President and CEO Daniel E. Straus and Executive Vice President Elizabeth Straus, and was in partnership with CareOne’s sister company InnovaCare.
The October-19 charity fundraiser was held at the Skylight Clarkson North in New York and included celebrity guests like NFL players Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul and many NFL alumni, recording artists Pitbull and JoJo, and models and actresses Danielle Brooks of “Orange is the New Black” and Joan Smalls.
“Starry Night Masquerade” comes in the wake of CareOne’s recent October-11 mission to Puerto Rico with New Jersey healthcare leaders and physicians from RWJBarnabas Health, with the trip was underwritten by CareOne. The company’s Chief Strategy Officer, Tim Hodges, visited hospitals and spoke with physicians and patients on the ground to evaluate how best to address the immediate needs of the island’s medical community.
Following CareOne’s recent trip to Puerto Rico and the October-19 “Starry Night Masquerade”, the company is continuing its relief planning and is in the process of scheduling follow-up trips to Puerto Rico in the coming weeks and months. In the interim, its on-the-ground team associated with CareOne’s two facilities on the island will continue working to ensure the proper dissemination of supplies to medical facilities, as well as transporting patients in need from Puerto Rico to New Jersey.
