Our 2013 Seeds of Hope honorees go the
extra mile to help their neighbors.
As much as Jerseyans have grit, they have heart. To celebrate those who give from their hearts, New Jersey Monthly created the
annual Seeds of Hope awards 10 years ago.
This year’s honorees include some of the
state’s most effective and dedicated volunteers. They were chosen by our judges: Ellen
Lambert, president of the PSEG Foundation;
Jaimie Ryan Morais, a personal shopper/styl-ist and past board member of Main Stream
(formerly the Somerset Hills Handicapped
Riding Center); Laura Aden Packer, arts
program director at the Geraldine R. Dodge
Foundation; Robert H. Silver, president of the
Bravitas Group; and Nina Stack, president of
the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers. Our
five honorees stood out in a pool of 6 0 impressive nominees. They will be recognized
at a luncheon on October 9 at the Crystal
Plaza in Livingston, a cosponsor of the event
along with PNC Wealth Management.
