The Y to Honor Board Member Timothy Hogan at Goin’ Country for Kids Benefit, July 28
Red Bank, NJ (July 24, 2012) – The Community YMCA will present the Distinguished Citizen Service Award to long-time Y advocate and community leader Timothy J. Hogan on July 28 at Goin’ Country for Kids, a benefit that will support children and families in need of Y services.
“The Community YMCA is pleased to honor Tim Hogan with the Distinguished Citizen Service Award,” said Tim Watters, the Y’s chief volunteer officer and chairman of the board. “His service to the Y and our community exemplifies what the award represents – commitment to outstanding community service, as evidenced by leadership to worthwhile organizations, as well as the respect and esteem of colleagues.”
The regional president of Meridian Health’s Riverview Medical Center and Bayshore Community Hospital, Hogan has been at the helm of Riverview since 2001. Hogan has transformed Riverview from an already outstanding facility to a nationally- recognized award-winning medical center that serves as a regional leader in the delivery of health care in our community. Under his leadership, Riverview has continually adapted to meet the growing needs of the community through innovation, leading-edge technology, and truly exceptional patient care.
In September 2010, Bayshore Community Hospital joined the Meridian Health family becoming the sixth hospital in the Monmouth and Ocean counties system. Hogan and the rest of his leadership team have implemented a similar vision at Bayshore. This vision includes advancing the development of patient care and services in a manner that is consistent with the Meridian way. Under his guidance, Bayshore Community Hospital will continue to emerge as a premier medical facility that continues to raise the bar in the delivery of health care excellence in Monmouth County.
Hogan has been a member of the Y board since 2002 and served as board chairman from 2007 until 2011. During his tenure he has provided leadership to the Y’s Strong Kids Campaign, which provides free and reduced program and membership fees for local children and families. At the same time, Hogan has served on the Y Board of Directors and the boards of many other local nonprofit organizations.
The Goin’ Country for Kids benefit will directly support the Strong Kids Campaign, helping the Y ensure that everyone – regardless of age, income or background - has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive through Y programs such as afterschool care, youth sports, health and wellness, swim lessons, summer camp, teen leadership and counseling and social services.
Featuring country music superstar Clint Black, the benefit will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception at Buona Sera. The cocktail reception will be followed by a special concert at 8 p.m. at the Count Basie Theatre featuring Black, long heralded as one of country music’s brightest stars. Greg Trooper, a singer/songwriter from Little Silver, who now tours nationally and internationally, will open the show. Rick Dill, also of Little Silver, will perform at the cocktail reception.
Hogan is serving as honorary co-chairman of the benefit with co-chairpersons Richard Maser, president of Maser Consulting, and Patty Whittemore, a member of the Y Board of Directors.
Concert-only tickets are available at the Count Basie Box Office by phone at 732.842.9000 or online at www.countbasietheatre.org.
