The 600 revelers who gathered in the Addison Park Friday night for an enchanting evening that celebrated the Emergency Children’s Health Organization’s (E.C.H.O.’s) 10th anniversary, had one thing in common: to further the Charleston-based organization’s mission to provide financial assistance to a child experiencing a challenging medical or living emergency.
Themed “Celebrate With Us,” the posh party staged in Aberdeen, N.J. banquet center, also lauded exemplary individuals — all devoted to community service on the local level and beyond.
Eric Eremita, HGTV’s resident contractor on the hit show “Love It or List It,” has served E.C.H.O. in enormous capacities since it’s inception — and recently as a member of its executive board, where he was responsible for a number of creative innovations.
Doug Wells, dubbed “Mr. Mercedes,” has been a strong supporter of E.C.H.O.’s cause from the beginning and also has played a key role in number of their Mercedes Benz raffles throughout the year.
