25th Annual Golf Outing

Register Now for Golf and Sponsorships

Please join us Monday, the 11th of September, for a day of golf in the name of charity!  We are pleased to return to Basking Ridge Country Club for our 25th Annual Golf Outing Fundraiser and we hope all can join us!

Every dollar raised through event participation, ticket sales, and sponsorships will go directly to fulfilling wish requests of seriously-ill children up through the age of 21 across the US. 

Registration starts at 10:45 with a buffet lunch at 11:00.  Eat lunch while warming up on one of two beautiful driving ranges.   A shotgun start for our scramble tournament kicks off at 12:30PM, immediately followed by a cocktail reception and dinner/awards ceremony in the newly updated ballroom.  Please consider being part of a Big Bear Foursome or a Big Bear Individual Golfer, where you will have your picture taken holding a sign in support of a specific child’s wish. Those pictures are sent to the child so he/she can see the faces of his/her supporters.  VGo Sponsors donate towards purchasing VGo Robots that will go to school for homebound students.  Scroll down for all of the options for sponsorships and add ons.  Not a golfer?  Come join us around 5:00 for the cocktail reception and dinner.  

A special thank you to The Schneider Foundation for being our event sponsor!

For any questions, please contact Suzanne directly at

Toy & Gift Drive 2020

As with all things 2020, Cherished Creations’ Toy and Gift Drive is going to look a little different this year. Typically, we have several collection sites at local schools, dance studios, offices and the YMCA.  With so many of these spaces closed, we needed to revamp our gift drive so we can still deliver gifts to our participating shelters.  This year, we are running a monetary gift and toy donation fund, separate from our wish fulfillment fund.  The funds donated to the gift drive will only be used to purchase toys, a large variety of warm clothing, books, and more.  I will then deliver these gifts to St. Joe’s Service Center, United Progress Trenton, BabyLand in Newark and Family Services of Elizabeth as they count on us each year to help their families’ holiday be as bright as possible.

If you have space and would like to act as a collection center for your local circle of friends or family, we would encourage you to do so!  You can contact Suzanne for more details and pick up deadlines.

If you are local and have new items that you would like to donate to our gift drive, we will happily accept new toys, clothing (sweaters/sweatshirts, coats/vests, hats/gloves, scarves, masks), books, arts and crafts, headphones/small electronics and more!! Donations can be dropped off at Cherished Creations’ headquarters at 343 Snyder Ave, Berkeley Heights, NJ.

Kindness is contagious.  In these difficult times, let us be a light for those around us and consider a donation to our gift drive.  We wish you much happiness and good health this holiday season.  Here’s to a better 2021 for us all!!

Grand Wine Tasting – Save The Date!

Please block of Friday night, March 20th, for our Annual Grand Wine Tasting Fundraiser at The Grand Summit Hotel in Summit, NJ. Our partnership with Dave Wagner at Adelphia Market and the Grand Summit Hotel promises a night of tasty decadence including a wide variety of wine, champagne, spirits and full buffet dinner. Tickets will go on sale in February. Check back here for ticket sales or contact us to be added to our emailing list. We look forward to celebrating with you on March 20th!

Holiday Gift Drive 2019

Our holiday gift drive is taking place again this winter… during a time crunch! Traditionally, we wait until after Thanksgiving to start collecting new toys and clothing. Since Thanksgiving falls so late in November, we would only have 11 business days to get the word out and have people shop/return the gifts before our collection deadline of Dec 13th. This year we are going to start before Thanksgiving, to ensure that we give everyone enough time to participate in our gift drive.

Here you can find a list of toys/clothing that we are asking for, Bear Gift List, but I can tell you that any new toy or clothing item is greatly appreciated. If you have new items in your home that you cannot use, please consider donating them. I have young children and know that over the years they have received toys or clothing that just hasn’t matched up with the sizes/seasons or is a duplicate. I gladly compile these items throughout the year and donate them to our gift drive.

If any local businesses or organizations (Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, sports teams) are looking for a community service project, we would love to partner with you for our toy drive! Email me today

We are currently partnered with some local schools, dance studios, companies, and the Berkeley Heights YMCA to act as gift collection centers. On Dec 16th, we will collect the gifts and deliver them to shelters in Newark, Elizabeth and Trenton, NJ. In turn, these shelters distribute the gifts to the families in their communities.

If you don’t live locally but would still like to be part of our gift drive, please consider ordering gifts and having them delivered to our offices: Cherished Creations/ Attn: Suzanne Grande/ 343 Snyder Ave./ Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922.

Thank you!

Thank you to all of our supporters for your donations! 100% of donations received go directly to our wish recipients and have brought such joy to so many children.  At the end of the year, we will reveal our exact number of wishes fulfilled throughout 2019, but for now, please enjoy this video of thanks.

21st Annual Golf Outing

Please join us for our 21st Annual Golf Outing on September 17th at Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, NJ! (Please note, the rain date will be September 18th)

Registration begins at 10:45, and we will kick off with a BBQ luncheon at 11:00. Hand-rolled cigars will be available for a $10 donation. At 12:30, we will have a shotgun start for our scramble tournament. A complimentary beverage cart will be making the rounds all day. Golfers will have an opportunity to compete for a hole in one, beat the pro, and play for a pot of gold.

A Cocktail Reception will immediately follow the round of golf and will go directly into the dinner reception. At the dinner reception, we have a very special guest speaker. During dessert, all winners will be announced for the Prize Raffle, golf contests, and silent auction winners. We hope you can join us!

Every penny of your donation goes directly to granting wish requests of seriously-ill kids up through the age of 21.
