Beach to be honored for charity work

In a strange twist of fate, two one-time political opponents for the position of Camden County clerk, Susan Rose, founder and president of the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation, and State Sen. Jim Beach, have joined forces to change the lives of countless mothers in need through their work with Mothers Matter and the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation.

In recognition of his tireless support of the Foundation, Sen. Jim Beach will be honored at an event at Tavistock Country Club in Haddonfield on Friday, Nov. 15.

“Jim Beach is a wonderful man who helped me cope with the loss of my daughter,” said Rose. “He also helped me find a purpose and redirect my energy in assisting mothers in need.”

Jack Tarditi, managing director of Conner Strong & Buckelew and former Haddonfield mayor, and Jennifer Dubrow Weiss, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, will serve as event co-chairs.

The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women achieve better lives for themselves and their families. Lauren Rose Albert was 40 years old when she passed away in a tragic car accident in 1999. She was a wife and mother of three.

The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation perpetuates Lauren’s legacy of by offering programs that reflect its credo that “Mothers Matter,” such as their annual Mother’s Day gift basket program which has now given out more than 24,000 gift baskets over 13 years to women who are facing difficult challenges.
