Immediate Care Medical Walk-In will be donating $10 for every physical performed at any of their nine urgent care locations to the Darrell Rogers, Jr. fundraiser now through the end of August. Proceeds from this fundraiser will assist the Rogers’ family in the medical costs for Darrell, a sophomore varsity athlete at Matawan Regional High School who has recently experienced a tragic medical emergency.
“Darrell is a talented young man with the support of his family, school, and community,” said Immediate Care CEO Sal Cannizzaro. “There is a long road ahead for the Rogers family and we hope this fundraiser can help in Darrell’s care and recovery.”
The Ball for Life fundraising event hosted by Immediate Care Medical Walk-In for Darrell on July 8 was attended by the Hazlet First Aid and Rescue Squad, Hazlet Fire Department, Darrell’s basketball teammates and coach, John Giraldo, as well as countless family, friends and members of the community. The event included a performance by the Matawan High School Jazz Band, face painting, a bake sale led by Matawan substitute teacher Wendy Levy, and many activities and “get well” crafts for Darrell. Door prizes were donated by Pinot’s Palette, Outback Steakhouse, Carvel, Rook Coffee, Chocolate Village, Angela’s Pizza, Kidz Topia, Danny’s Steakhouse, and a Mary Kay basket from Petrina Picerno. A special thank you for the sponsorships and donations from Perkins Restaurant and Bakery for the mini muffins, the bagels and cream cheese from Brooklyn Bagels, Associate Home Quality Care for the water bottles and pens, Alexa Mason and Paula Gasperone for the cookies and cupcakes and to Ben and Jorgan from International Planning for the fudge, water bottles and juice boxes.
