Czar’s Got Heart: 2011 Project Heartbeat Charity Ball

After the Jimmy V New Jersey Dinner on Friday I was able to run over to Mayfair Farms and catch the tail end of the 46th Annual Project Heartbeat Charity Ball presented by the John I. Crecco Foundation.

The John I. Crecco Foundation has donated over one million dollars in cardiac equipment to area hospitals, installed defibrillators in police cars as well as emergency squad units, purchased fire safety teaching equipment for local schools and sponsored several hundred youth athletic teams since its inception.

Both John and Marion Crecco have dedicated decades of service to the Township of Bloomfield. In addition to serving as a Councilman and the Deputy Commissioner of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, John was elected Mayor of Bloomfield from 1986 to 1989 and from 2001 to 2002, while Marion served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 1986 to 2002.

John and Marion have always been passionate about contributing to causes dear to their hearts. It was terrific to see that these two community-minded citizens are still at it after so many years and that they continue to make a difference in the lives of countless others.
